Ferrets should not bite dogs on the nose.

Arrival Story:
Mackenzie was at the Pinol (CA) pound where he aquired kennel cough. He was young and on his last day there so two kind hearted women from Berkeley paid alot of money to get him out un-neutered. They had a dog with a heart condition so he ended up in ICU at VCA in Oakland. My best friend worked there and knew I loved hunting dogs lived nextdoor and knew he would like room to streach in his cage he could hardly turn around. Will always be head shy. Tried and liked obidience and agility. Was neutered as soon as he was well. They played a joke on me and pickled his parts in a jar so he can be barried intact.

This quote really reminded me of Mac and the changes I've observed in him

"a dog's behavior [is] just hews to and mirrors the environment that it's living in, and there is something deeply reaffirming, hearting in that."

the overall article made me realize that what ever abuse etc he had prior to our owning him was not as significant because it is the environment we provide that impacts him day to day. We have moved four times three within short walks it always makes things different I always hope better.

I share the couch with everyone. Lumpy is as big a beggar as myself. I hung out at the coffee shop and enjoyed the company of Little Bear.
