    She is one very lucky dog. I hope you stick around on this forum. I was born in San Benito, my parents moved to Longview when I was 2, but we went back to the Valley for years to visit. I haven't been back there in many years.

    Wow San Benito is just around the corner from us and this address was a San Benito address 2 years ago. it is currently Los Fresnos. I do have to admit I live in the coolest part of TX, well except for Austin. I live in a colonias region. Also I am probably the only english as a first language speaker for miles around. I am fluent in German but that gets me nowhere here. Regardless, it is the bomb I can get awesome breakfast tacos with awesome salsa daily(way better than SanAntonio's). I think some Brownsville joint won this years breakfast taco award.

    My mother graduated from Weslaco high school when she was 16, went to business college for a year and went to work in an office. World War 2 broke out and she was hired for a military base office. At 18, because of her experience, (LOL) she was made office manager and sent to Del Rio.

    My Daddy never graduated, joined the Navy for 8 years and went all the wat through WW2. He was raised in the Valley also, his father was a poor sharecropper. My Daddy worked on crews of men, digging the irrigation canals with shovels.

    My Mother's Father was Postmaster in Weslaco and retired from there. We used to go see him and he always had breakfast at The Cortez Hotel. We went across the border, went to the markets and restuarants and had a good time. It is all different now. A lot of family history is in the Valley.

    I wish I could say she is HW-but the vet test after tretment she still tests positive. ///////////she was fine taking the Iverheart stuff. I was layingon the floor as a drunken Texan and she kept me wonderful company. She would bond with anyone who could bond with a dog of this caliber. We took her to the vet today. Go Aggies!(Aggies are a Texan thing) and my uncle Lonnie teaches there. So I love A and M.

    She would be an excellent guard dog for anyone who wouldn't tie her out. I wil say she protect you from chicken.

    That's good! I am glad you are so devoted to her! A lot of people wouldn't be.
