Welcome!! This is a journal about my dogs and what we do.
All my dogs have their own websites that you can see by clicking their photo in the sidebar.

Jake's site (click for site) is the most active right now with new posts in addition to the facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/laurelstone).

This site is a work in progress and has become a source of information. When asked a question I would write a post to answer
it which led to a post to summarize the questions. Check the sidebar for this type of information.

Enjoy the visit and feel free to email me at

Send good thoughts Jakes way…

(reprinted from Faceook) 
Tomorrow(2/22/10) he has surgery. Two weeks ago he started limping and x-rays showed " an old fracture of the pelvis on right ischium going into the acetabulum. The femoral head and neck were damaged with dernineralization of the head." (obviously not my words!) So after consultation with several vets who all agreed, Jake will have a femoral head excision tomorrow at Dr. Link's office in Madison. After that.. rehab and recovery!

Oh no! A big hug to both of you.

We're doing that rehab thing here. My foster dog had grade 3 and 4 luxating patellas. We fixed the worst one about a month ago, once it heals (he's STILL on crate/short leash rest), we'll look at doing the other.

Not fun.

Thanks all.. Heather... we're not totally sure but the x-rays were 2 weeks after I got him and the injury was an "old fracture" - words used by 2 vets independently... was it mom when he was tiny.. don't know.. maybe never will.. Tammy... I'm told he will be able to do sport work so I'm keeping my fingers crossed because he sure wants to! Right now it's rehab on my mind!
