Roper's Snapshot Saturday No.40 | 4 Comments - Click Here :

    As some of you already know, and others have probably wondered where Roper has been.... Roper suffered a severe poisoning episode a few weeks back when he licked up some errant horse de-wormer that fell to the ground. Apparently this can be lethal to dogs, particularly to herding breeds. It attacks their neurological system, as this is the method meant to kill parasites in horses. He spent three days in emergency care and teetered on the edge of life. I am happy to report that he is home, and despite a lingering respiratory issue, appears to have made a complete recovery.
Thanks to all who sent their well wishes. Beau the Border Collie and Spencer the Wiener dog are thrilled he is back too. Roper has returned!
