Doug Update - April 2, 2011

Doug is Amazing


April 2011 Doug Update:  Doug is an amazing dog.  What more can I say?  Edi and William have done an amazing job with him.  He's so happy, so joyful, and so madly in love with both of them, as well as with his step sister, Stella.  (Though Stella is so gorgeous, what red-blooded American boy wouldn't be in love with her?)

We had another grooming session at the end of March and I was beyond amazed at how well he is doing.  No coughing or wheezing except when he got a little stressed over the whole bath and blow-dry, but other than that his breathing was uneventful. He feel great now that he has those nasty teeth all gone, and he loves his treats.  The next thing is to get his knees checked (they felt a little funky to me) to be sure he isn't dealing with any patella issues, and then it's time for nutrition, nutrition, nutrition to get his coat built up.  He's still got a pretty thin coat, but at least the texture is getting better.  Some oils and vitamins and we should have him looking perfect!

Here is a video of Doug - nothing very exciting - it was cold and he was suddenly "nekkid" from his hair cut so he was more interested in going back inside, but he did have a little bit of fun with Stella.


Doug wants to say "Thanks again" to everyone for their support. Doug still requires medication every day (about $65/month) to keep his airways and heart working at optimal levels and he can still use your help paying for that.  If you'd like to help sponsor him for a month, please click the "Donate" button below and donate what you can via PayPal.  Or mail your donation toKathy Lauer, American Fox Terrier Rescue Treasurer, 8738 Prestwick Parkway, Brooklyn Park, MN 55443.  Remember, your donation is tax deductible.
