    Hi All:

    I went to see this at a local theater yesterday and what a great movie for dog lovers. This movie will make you cry, will make you laugh, and it will make you smile.

    A Dog's Purpose

    It was filmed in Winnipeg, streets near my friend's house were filled up with cars and decor from the 1950s for a few of the scenes. It was like going back in time.

    Something we all like, a dog on the beach at sunset.

    Now that's cute! The dealer where I got my Prius welcomes pets in the waiting area. The day I bought my car some lady was in there with her Golden Retriever named Thor, who was fast asleep.

    Speaking of Dogs
    Arty-our greyhound( Isis and Phoebe were one and two) developed septic arthritis about 2 weeks ago
    went from a yelp and a limp to walking on 3 legs in one day-
    red swollen from "ankle" up to "knee" entire lower leg-10 or more inches
    small "draining" port-perhaps the original injury draining somewhat thin fluid not thick pus
    had keflex at hand- 36 hours-no response
    amoxil clavulonic acid-bingo- dramatic improvement 2 doses-24 hours
    fully cleared-via eyeball- 5 days-will go 10 days
    Augmentin is still usually effective-humans and dogs-for that sort of infection-
    yes it usually causes intestinal "problems"
    surprisingly human probiotics(SAMS SOMEWHAT GENERIC PRODUCT- claims 5 billion active units per dose-5 different bacteria)

    Edwin
    Thanks-
    yep Arty was obviously on the med after just 2 doses-stacked very closely-of 873/125 Aug triple usual dose-
    last friday ar 3:30pm and 10pm-wanted 2 full doses)
    Now - 15 dose this am-no visible evidense of infection
    waaay back when -1996 or so-Isis our first-arrived from the greyhound rescue center with an identical infection-and she responded very well also-couldn't remember which antibiotic the vet prescribed(probably a 2nd 3rd gen drug from the Keflex family is my memory)
    not sure if greyhounds are particularly likely to get those infections
    1)Long skinny exposed legs
    2)very little hair-protection
    3) very sensitive skin-
    4)very fast running ( high speed could make a minor bump tear the skin)
    probably makes it more likely
    anyway our beagles-never developed that sort of infection
    it would be considered extremely serious in humans-life limb threatening-certainly would be surgically drained-hospitalized etc-zillion $
    vets are no longer treating with cost in mind-
    Thanks

    Thanks
    Arty is 100% cured now
    She just got her last 20th(10 days) dose-
    she "lost the limp" after just 4 doses
    In fact she is pestering me for a walk right now-
    Cats are better in that respect-they have no interest in recreational exercise
    but they are very powerful "recreational" sleepers
    Muffin insists on spending the day on my bed-watching TV etc-
    she gets up about 10 pm and retires to her "apartment" (a dog crate she sleeps in so her "brothers" don't pester/bully her her at night-and so she will use the litter where she is supposed to)

    Arty thanks you for asking
    she is fine-completely recovered
    and I think I discovered the WHY-of why she ended up with the infection
    A year or so ago-I switched her to car carpet mats-ebay-as sleep gear-instead of the Goodwill store used kid's sleeping bags that my late wife would use
    Well the mats weren't big enough-and perhaps they were abrasive too
    she developed a slight scab at the pressure point/bone on her "ankle"
    that was where the infection "got in"
    obviously she is back to sleeping bags
    Thanks
    Charlie
    PS Goldie puppy- cute CHEATING
