I'm all for keeping the vest on. It looks professional.

Gracie was a mostly black dog. I used a lighter colored vest on her -red- and her fur was actually cooler under the vest.
Lighter colors reflect sun light.

Gracie was active till a few days before her death at 14 yrs.
People used to thing she was only 2 or at the most 6 yrs.

Of course Bostons tend to remain playful til the end

Tuvok has had a anal gland abscess. It was very nasty and painful. Now they get expressed regularly.
None of my other dogs have ever needed this done, thankfully.

You could try MSU in Lancing. They may or may not be able to help. MSU does have the latest technology.
They are pricey though.

I have noticed vets don't like giving us bad news and may be at a loss as to what to say.

My dear Gracie, my first service dog, has passed away.
I've been a mess.
Its maybe not the proper place to put this, but I know many of the service dogs on here knew her.

Choosing the Right Dog > Good apartment dog?

Boston terriers were developed to be the perfect urban dog. They do well in apartments, enjoy children and can be easily exercised indoors with a game of fetch or outside with a walk.

These dogs do not have an undercoat so don't shed much but need a sweater during winter walks.

Choosing the Right Dog > Differences between French Bulldogs and Boston terriers?

Bostons are much more easily trained than frenchies. They have less of a stubborn streak. Bostons have a bit of terrier in them and are much more playful/a bit more active(though this breed can be easily exercised in the house).

Strangely enough I have run into a number of dog aggressive frenchies. Most Bostons get along with everyone.

Service & Therapy Dogs > When to decide a pup isn't suitable?

it sounds like you've made a good decision. Some dogs aren't cut out for SD work and it would be totally unfair to the dog if he is fearful.

The best pup for SD work is very brave and steady. You need one that takes new things in stride. You want a pup that gets mostly 3's and 4's on the Volhard puppy test and does a full or partial retrieve(a score of three or four on the retrieval test) at 7 weeks of age. Other than being steady and brave, the retrieval test is the single most important indicator of whether a dog can do SD work.
