Yesterday morning, shortly after I was first found out about Opie, I called planetjupiter and told him the news. His initial reaction was to tell me that he has a significant number of friends who are dealing with pet health issues right now.
Now, the last time that I remember someone making a statement like that was last December, just before the whole poision pet food scandal broke.
So I'm asking here, now, and admittedly anecdotally ... does anyone else out there know of an unusually large number of people dealing with pet health issues at the moment? Perhaps just a higher-than-average percentage of their friends list?
