I'm going to pass the info. on to my neighbor. My dog had demodectic mange as a puppy but it was mostly around his eyes. But I guess that could be it. Either way, he definitely needs to bring her...

It was tough and I coudn't bring myself to give him a name until I knew he would make it...and the vets told me he likely wouldn't. But a couple of weeks and over $500 later, he pulled through. And...

That's cute

And it's funny that you mentioned labs maturing at 5-6. Until recently, people didn't believe he was that old because he looked and acted so much like a puppy. In the last year, he's gotten a...
