    I just want to say how sorry I am about your situation. 10 years is really young for a chihuahua. Most live for 14 years or more. Is she sick? Does she have a regular vet who may be able to guide you?

    I don’t know how they handle situations like the one you asked about, but the Rascal Animal Hospital in Dublin (off Tuttle Blvd next to the Walmart) offers some low cost treatments. They’re also a 24 hour emergency vet clinic. They may be able to help or to at least give you some information or options.

    I wish you and your little one peace in this difficult time.

    Porky, not sure if they can help or not, but you may want to consider contacting Central Ohio Pit Savers.
    Their website says they help rescue pits in shelters, but they might have help or advice for you if you really can’t keep that beautiful little lady.

    Here’s the # from their website: 614-525-5442

    Dooo iiiit!
    What a beautiful pup!

    I wasn’t a dog fan until my husband convinced me to get our first (from the Franklin County Dog Shelter). Within a year, we were back for our second shelter dog.

    I would have 10 if we could. Unfortunately, we learned that our two wouldn’t really allow us to adopt even one more.

    Thanks for keeping her safe, Porky.

    If you’re on Facebook, please post on pet FBI Ohio’s page (if you haven’t already). Also, Nextdoor can be helpful to reunite pets and people in a neighborhood or area.

    She’s a cutie. Hope she finds her people soon! Thanks for watching out for her!

    I was surprised to find two nice Krogers not far apart on West Broad, on either side of 270.

    There’s also one in that area just outside of 270 off of Georgesville Road.

    So sad! I’m hoping they can still have a season this year!
    If not, it could be really devastating.

    Does the media jinx it??

    I think the media just has no idea what they’re talking about when they try to claim that low prices are “here to stay”. Everyone should know by now that gas prices will always constantly be changing. ;)

    Sure. They constantly change. I just find it so interesting that the upward changes seem to immediately follow news stories that claim low gas prices are sticking around.

    That was really a rhetorical question. But, it’s such a common occurrence that it seems that there could be a relationship (even though there probably isn’t).

    Low gas prices may be here to stay in Columbus<br>
    By Mike Bowersock<br>
    Published: September 8, 2015, 10:16 pm

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) –Did you notice it today? Gas prices dropped after Labor Day, in many cases below $2 per gallon. It appears they’re here to stay for awhile.

    READ MORE: http://nbc4i.com/2015/09/08/low-gas-prices-may-be-here-to-stay-in-columbus/

    Gas prices went up $0.35 on Thursday (the day after this story was posted on CU and two days after it was written). Never fails.
    Does the media jinx it??

    What a sweet face!,

    Please post on Pet FBI, too!

    No tags? A vet can scan him for a microchip.

    I hope a happy reunion happens soon!

    We used Lowes to re-carpet the stairs and second floor of our rental last summer.

    Other than having to return to the store once to work out a small wrinkle (it was on clearance, so they had to source the amount we needed from two different stores), it was all very smooth.

    We we very happy with the carpet, the price ($0.39 per square foot!!!), and the installation.

    anyone see these around? I love trying weird new chips… they had me at reuben

    I grabbed a quick dinner at Subway tonight, and they had the individual bags of all of the flavors there. It was the Subway in West Jefferson, but if that one had them, I would guess that many/most of the other locations would, too.

    I have worked with just about every single one. They are angels doing a difficult if not impossible job with crappy funding. You are helping out whichever you choose.

    Totally agree.

    To OP: thank you for choosing to adopt pets in need!!

    You can be fat and healthy, and you can be thin and unhealthy. BMI, weight, etc. doesn’t mean anything.

    Sorry, but that’s simply not true. Weight has been clinically tied to overall health over and over again.

    You’re a doctor?

    Smokers are much more readily accepted than fat people are in this society.

    Also, you can put down a cigarette and never pick one up again. Not so with food. Because of this, food addictions are MUCH more difficult to overcome.

    That’s a strange dichotomy in my estimation.

    As I’m following this conversation, is it fair to make this summary from the majority of comments (?):

    1) Obesity is not a problem in the United States, because it doesn’t exist and people can’t help it.

    2) Even if it were a problem, it should not be discussed and still can’t be fixed.

    No. Here’s where I’m coming from:

    –Fat doesn’t automatically mean unhealthy.
    –Eating disorders are diseases, and people struggle with issues (psychological or physical) that you can’t know or understand.
    –Fat isn’t a moral failing, and those who struggle should be shamed or shunned because of their body shape/size. People are people — fat, thin or or in between.
    –My body shape is no one’s business or concern other than my own. Why do people think otherwise?
