    A friend sent me a link to an article on the dog flu virus that has affected dogs in many states in this country, and is probably present everywhere.

    go to PetPlace.com, do a search for 'dog virus', and follow the link the site will provide.

    This 'dog flu' is a serious problem!

    Peace,
    Beth.

    Hi Beth,
    This was a topic of discussion today at work (I'm a Vet Tech).
    You're right, this could be a very bad thing. The city I live in is having a "Pet Fest" tomorrow (everyone brings their dogs on a leash), play doggie games, races, etc. to raise money for the local animal shelter.
    The Dog Virus is causing a lot of folks to reconsider taking their dogs around others, although we havent seen any in our area.
    Lets hope it can get controlled soon!

    We had to take my daughters dog to Vet,she said there had just been two cases.
    So sad to lose our furry kids.just like family.
    And all those poor pets left homeless by Katrina,and that means so many lonely people missing them.
    We can send loving thoughts thier way.
    Take care
