well, this will go in my "save" file, that's for sure. And I'll have to
check with the Vets and see how much they think Brandy should weigh (he
could have been over weight a year ago and 82 pounds is too much - I don't
know.) He doesn't seem like a BIG collie to me - not as tall as Cap I don't
think - how much does Cap weigh?

Brandy is on Interceptor (the other pups get Heartgard) - don't these
also take care of internal parasites? I am going to get some Frontline
tonight for him, not only for the fleas but also because i pulled a tick
off him (we don't have ticks here but i guess they do in Maine). If
interceptor doesn't handle internal parasites i'll bring home some wormer
He's already much perkier since I got him. Quinn is wild with
jealousy but he doesn't try to start a fight, he just sits near me and
singsongs his complaints. He was very tolerant when he was lying at my feet
and Brandy came over and sat on him...
