thanks for the good thoughts and wishes, everybody!! It is such a help. You know, when you have an APBT, there is such a tendency for people to react as though you've harboring a mass killer. And Frankie just has never been aggressive at all.

Blondie: good news. She is not sick, she has no illness (other than a well-healing jagged 8 inch gash in her back), she is remarkable hale and hearty for her age. I thought of something else, though: like many of my "last stop" dogs, Blondie has a difficult history. Her first "peepul" were well-meaning but they were crazy. I doubt that she was ever decently socialized with other dogs, and then her owner kept her locked in a bedroom for two years. Although she plays well and is sweet and submissive with the other dogs, it is certainly likely that, in some subtle or not-subtle way I am unable to see, her doggy social skills are off. She may be sounding out vibes to other dogs that are going to get her in trouble. So she is going to the behaviorist too.

Frankie appears not to be sick. If he did have a seizure, it is as yet a one-time thing; we can't detect anything that would warn of a repeat. Not a sign of a tumor. Blood levels ok, but he did have a UTI. We're treating that. So now, it's also in the behaviorist's court. She comes on Saturday to the house, to see everyone interact in the normal setting.
