I Love Texas!

Our luck may have just changed. I’m afraid to say anything til we have a done deal but we’re both way more excited than we’ve been about anything yet. We should know something definite by mid-day tomorrow.

    I was reading some of your older posts about the snake problem and rabies problem in Texas.

    I saw a news report about the snakes about a week ago and the vet on the news said that all Texas dogs need to be vacinated for possible snake bites. I have never heard of such a thing but evidently it helps lessen the affect if your dog does get bit. They’ll still get sick, but most likely won’t end up dieing.

    And as far as rabies goes, Texas has always been really bad. Years ago my brother got bit by a rabid skunk. He didn’t know which was worse, the series of shots or the fact that half the state knew that he was dumb enough to lose a fight with a skunk.

      Our vet said that it’s mostly for outside dogs or dogs that go out unattended. He didn’t recommend it for Speck since he only goes out on a leash and with one of us with him and we’re real careful about watching for snakes.

      No! We’ve looked in every package we think they might be in and there’s no way we’re going to unpack every single box looking for them.
