For those of you who supported us during Shayna's near-fatal
bout with IMHA, her subsequent glorious survival for two more years and
then her final death from cancer, I am thrilled to be back on this
forum with a new puppy!
Xuxa arrived almost four weeks ago, has turned our life upside down, and
is making us very very happy. Like Shayna (and Shadow before her),
Xuxa is also a flat-coated retriever. We got her through a friend who
runs FCR rescue here in Southern California but she is actually from
Portugal (hence the strange spelling of her Portuguese/Brazilian name).
I have all sorts of questions about changes in philosophy re spaying
Large Breed Puppies, but that can wait. I just wanted to say Hi! again.
