Thanks, mamahawk. Those are some great thoughts!! I definitely need the encouragement to move forward with it. I have separation anxiety too :)
I have 3 little ones- 5.5 DD, 2.5 DS, 5mo DD.    My eldest went to a local preschool (Abbott funded- so free for us- and high quality staff, curriculum, etc.) full time when she was 3 and 4yrs old. Our public schools around here for Kindergarten are mediocre quality at best. I stay home with my kids because I am blessed to be able to. We ultimately decided to try homeschooling DD for Kindergarten this year and see how it goes.    It has been a good year, and we...
  we limit videos to weekends. We tell DD that she can watch videos on "mommy, daddy,dahlia days" that seems to put it in language she can understand right now. Going cold turkey when she gets in a watching rut definitely works well. The holidays are rough, because there are more days when we are all home, but we tend to be more busy, so videos don't come up as much. BTW, we don't have a TV, never have-just watch things on the computer. So we don't cover it or anything,...
Thanks so much, guys! I will def check them out!
Hi all! I have a wonderful chiropracter I used to go to, but then we moved eastward and he moved westward! It is now quite a hike to get there. I would love a recommendation for a chiropracter to ease the normal pregnancy issues, and also to help out if need be around delivery time (Webster's method, helping induce labor, etc.). Also, I would really prefer if they take insurance (we have Oxford). TIA for any recs!! ~Sarah
We use Dr. Schlachter, and he is very open to non-vaxing. He is also a very skilled pediatrician. Have always had good experiences with him (watch out for the cranky office staff, tho).

Totally agree! Pick your pup based on temperament, then decide with your vet how many and what kind of vaccines you will give. Border Collies need to be way sound. Hope you have a high energy household and lots of time to devote to your new addition! Temperament is by far more lethal than any disease dogs get. (not many are transmitted to humans, either, BTW, just a few that we can vaccinate for)
So sorry to hear about your experience. I know how stressful and frustrating that kind of incident can be. I wanted to write to clear a few things up as a veterinary technician and a dog trainer. Please don't let anyone bully you into putting this dog to sleep unless they have behavior training and have taken a full history. I did not see what happened and have not taken a full history, but from what you have written, I don't think this dog is a good candidate for...
