I was talking with my home insurance agent this am and mentioned that we had a Dobe at home ( just to see if it affected our coverage - you just never know about the fine print). She asked if we had heard anything about the dog flu - her backyard neighbor lost 6 of her 9 3-month-old labradoodle pups to it last week and her neighbor across the street has had her dogs at the vet's for it. We are north of Morristown NJ, these dogs are in the Flanders/Mt. Olive area. Have to take Java in to see vet on Thursday for conjunctivitis (pink eye) - again! Will ask and pass on whatever I learn.
