History

We have had Spot since he was a puppy. He was bred by my husband’s mother, and came to live with us after he was weaned. He’s been our family’s dog for the past 8 years and we love him dearly.

Hi all,

Very sad news to share.  Our incredibly sweet little epileptic beagle girl zoey, whose seizures had previously been controlled well with medicine for the past 3-4 months, had to be rushed to Cornell ER late last night for the second time this week with uncontrollable seizures.
