My alternate headline for this post was "Why Are You Staring At Me?" That's Travis, our dog with a fused jaw, eating his dinner a few days ago. We were taking photos for the fall print newsletter, which will have Travis on the cover. Though not this photo!
For those who may not know the history, Travis had a rare inflammatory disease called masticatory myositis, which affects the jaw muscles. If caught early enough, the disease can be treated with medications and the progression slowed and sometimes reversed. In Travis' case, his original owner never treated him for it, and eventually left him one night tied up to a vet clinic door in Spokane, Washington. The clinic called animal control, who then called us.
New Shelter Challenge Begins
The latest round of the Shelter Challenge is underway and runs until October 13. You can vote every day here. To search for us, type in our name, Rolling Dog Farm, and Lancaster, NH 03584.
They have redesigned the contest site and made other changes. Please note that I cannot help with technical or voting problems. I also do not have an "inside track" to anyone at the Shelter Challenge, and I don't know any more about the contest than anyone else does. So if you find yourself having issues, please consult their FAQ page here and their Rules page, which is a pop-up you can find linked on this page.
Thanks for your votes!
