April, be really careful bringing in another dog. Parvo is a rather lon-lasting organism. The vet is right, though some breeds are still a bit more prone than others, even with all their vaccinations. Regardless, I hope you find the perfect needs-a-home dog for you.
As for the rabbits, I don't know why people don't respond except that sometimes I will read an e-mail and *mean* to write back, but don't have the time at that moment. Then I tend to forget for a few days. I know, that's bad, cause sometimes it's more than a few days even.
Doesn't mean anything against the person, just me forgetting about it. So maybe something like that happened. Cornering him at a show sounds like a good idea.
