    In ANY transaction, the 'cost' you have in anything is already gone; the accounting term is a 'sunk cost'. You've already spent that time/money on the asset. Puppy price, vet bills, training time,...

    I've noticed Frontline's lack of effectiveness also. Advantage works well on fleas but is ineffective on ticks.

    My pup was microchipped with the AKC 'reunite' chip very early and I enrolled her in the AKC program. Is this a good setup, or should I look for a different chip now?

    My old dog was about two before she stopped chewing shoes and was safe to leave outside the crate when we were gone. It doesn't hurt to crate them when you're away--rule of thumb is one hour plus...

    So sorry for your loss. They just don't live long enough. My Maggie passed last spring; I've got another puppy that is a joy, but I still remember Maggie's first day with us, and her last.

    My condolences. I've been there recently, too. You'll never forget her, but after awhile the good times will be fondly remembered and the hurt will ease somewhat.
