HOT Damn, I need addresses here, since when did nekkid midnight moon dances enter the conversation on a suport forum, guess thats what I get for not keeping up. How can anyone not like hardwood floors. Good luck on the move, hopefully it works out for you, Paws up, Spirit Gus and Dan

My buddy Gus had a left front amputation on April 7, 2010 and lived a great life until July 26,2010

Best wishes on the move!

Besides the is the boy doing with this change?

I'm guessing Evelynn will find many ways to get even with you and D Dawg will be fine as long as there is a warm place to nap.

As a side note...Bud can't navigate hardwood floors at all. He slides and hurts himself. However he does o.k. on tile and laminate at the vet office once he is up? Is that normal or strange? Wouldn't they both be equally slippery? We have a area rug in the dining room and carpeted the deck stairs.

Once you are there, I'm sure you and Dakota will figure out ways to get him motoring about but do be careful those slips and possible strains are scary!

Good luck on the move!  Finchy would be with Evelyn- he doesn't like new things.  Chili Dawg did well on the steps, so I'm sure Dakota will do well too- he does have golden in him 🙂

Good luck with the move - anew home is exciting.  I'm sure D-Dawg and Evelyn will adjust just fine.
