Just thought I'd introduce myself - I'm usually just an observer on forums but I recently adopted/rescued 2 dogs - Rocky and Beau from DogsTrust. I had a panic on Sunday when Rocky's health took a dive after receiving a booster shot (Nobivac L4) from the Vet on Saturday. I found this forum yesterday whilst researching the side effect of this drug and found a thread about it so I decided to join so I can participate, share and ask questions.
Rocket is a male mini yorkie and Beau (changed name) is a female crossbreed(yorkie and bichon frise). They came as a pair and even though I wanted just one dog, I couldn't resist taking them both. Since joining my husband and I one month ago, they've both been an absolute delight. So much joy, especially from Rocky who is just a fluffy bundle of joy. Beau is more sensitive and takes her time to warm up to new people and things, which is understandable coming from the life they lived before being rescued.
Hi chelsealady welcome . I am owner to a Norwegian elkhound crossbreed called samson (dog in avatar pic) and a ginger tabby cat called mario. Sorry your dog had a reaction to the l4 vaccine, I've heard stories like this in the past of dogs having bad reactions to it. My dogs just had the vaccine but no reaction luckily.
Welcome to the forum chelsealady, I have 7 cats and a mad, very naughty Patterdale Cross called Kobi. Your 2 dogs are very cute and I'm glad that you got talked into having the 2 of them from the Dogs Trust - I wouldn't have been able to just have 1 of them either. I hope that Rocky is okay now after the scare with the vaccine.
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: It won't be for long. When I had kittens I just used to sit and watch them for ages - are you doing that yet?

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
