    When one of our dogs grew old, deaf, and crotchety, I simply took him to the kennel (which he liked) for the one or two weekends a month that my very young nephews came to visit. Worked well.

    What I hope you realize is that huge numbers of students struggle in their first semester of college, even without dealing with hard life events. For the majority it gets MUCH better. Give yourself a...

    Hooray, while she showed the same symptoms today, the folks at UT felt that they weren't neurological so much as nonspecific hind end lameness. We did a fair amount of diagonostics and ended up...
  12. Sarah showing neurologic symptoms--trying not to panic
