Since I've been posting, thought I should properly introduce myself. I'm Kori, I live in So Cal with my DH of 39 years. We have 2 kids, 5 gkids, and 2 4-legged furkids.
First is Joe, he's 7 and it's his BDay today. Joe is a chocolate from BYBers, we've had him since he was 8 weeks old. Joe has severe elbow dysplasia and thru Jen (Canyon) we found a great surgeon to clean up his worst elbow. Just recently Joe was diagnosed with retinal dysplasia, which goes along with his elbow dysplasia. His eye filled with blood, we went to our new vet, then to the AVCO vet where he was diagnosed. He's on eye drops, probably for the rest of his life, but seems to be doing well. He will be rechecked on the 18th. With all his problems, he is just the best guy, he's my DH's heart dog.
Java is 8 and has been with us for 3 years. We rescued her from a no kill shelter, she didn't even look like a lab, she looked like a Chow. I don't think she'd ever been brushed, it was crazy. After getting her nasty yeasty ears cleaned up and a bad UTI cleared up, she is a happy girl. We've also gotten about 15 lbs off her with probably 5 or 6 more to go. We're also sure she was abused and we've been working on a lot of her issues.
This is a great forum, really glad to be here.
Weclome!! Glad to have ya!!
