I just came from the vet. I brought Sky in with no muzzle, she sniffed and went through the exam without incident.  WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE.

"Dogs are not humans.  They belong to a different species.  If you want a dog to achieve success in our human world, take the time to develop an understanding of how they communicate and protect them from those humans who are still figuring it out."
