RE: Thinking of another Collie, Cooper saga

I remember when daughter's cocker spaniel pulled a box of See's candy off the counter and had himself a yumy snack. You always hear that chocolate is bad for dogs but that little sucker showed not the slightest hint of remorse or stomach problems. He must have been disappointed that he never had that luck again.

RE: What Movies, and or Programs Are Difficult to Watch?

I remember seeing Bambi as a child and hearing one little boy in the audience scream "NO!" when Bambi's mom dies. Cowboy and Indian movies traumatized me, too. I couldn't even read Grimm's Fairy Tales because some of them gave me nightmares. I suspect today's kids are tougher because they are exposed to so much on TV from a very early age.

RE: Heaven Acquired a New Angel Calvin's Gift

I remember so clearly when you and Calvin met for the first time. He took to you like he knew you forever. They never really leave, you know. He is part of who you are: Someone who loved and was loved by a good dog. Several of them, as a matter of fact. That's a darned good life, in my book.

RE: A Bad Saturday

What a life lesson these sweet pets teach us, on how to love them with all our heart and then have the courage to let them go. It makes the time we spent with them all the more precious. I'm sorry for your loss, but then, they never really leave us.

RE: Heaven Acquired a New Angel Calvin's Gift

Aww, so sorry to hear this, but you gave that boy a wonderful life and he returned the favor tenfold. I'm picturing the bunnies at Rainbow Bridge teasing Calvin unmercifully. He is forever joyful in your memories.

RE: Not such a good Friday

Aww, I remember when Lassie came to you. I'll bet you gave her the best years of her life. Isn't it amazing how every single dog has his/her unique personality and their own way of worming their way into your heart? It's a loss when they have to leave, but then again, they never really do. I know you miss your funny "Librarian." She just got a promotion: Keeping order at the Rainbow Bridge. RIP Lassie.

Beautiful story and beautiful car!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

This was the scene in North Augusta today as television crews placed cameras in and on the 72 Lincoln http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/thumbnail_IMG_1028.jpg http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/thumbnail_IMG_1030.jpg http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/thumbnail_IMG_1032.jpg Isn't it comical to see those big old cars being treated like antiques as we remember when the roads (and the parking lots!) were full of them?! It was hazardous to just walk through a parking lot in those days. The Lincoln is looking good!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

We had a vet come to the house last year for Edna, our orange tabby age 19. Edna felt secure in her favorite place, on our bed, and being petted by this nice lady. It was still hard for me, but way easier for Edna than the alternative. Izzy has had a great life and done his job well. Bless his little heart.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Yes to bug-out kits! When we were volunteers during Hurricane Katrina and the aftermath. some evacuees ended up (not happily) here in California. We heard about losing a lifetime of ireplaceable photos many times over. Still, when we l had our own evac emergency (wildfire) a few years later, we left home with nothing but our pets.I didn't even grab our meds. Nobody knows what that kind of panic feels like until it happens to them. We have the kit made up now.

RE: RVers don't like cats

Me taking Eek for walkies in the snow- http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/eekinsnow.jpg We had a cockatiel named Eek. That was because it was the only thing she could say. Yes, there are people who don't like cats, and I never trust those people. Cats are masters at recognizing true human character.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Maybe somebody will grab that photo off FB and post it here? There are still some of us who don't do Facebook.

RE: Has anyone heard from Nabi?

I'm sentimental like that, too, and hate to lose touch with friends who have moved on with their lives. I also miss hearing about their pets. Ecuador has had at least two good sized quakes in the past year, anI'm betting that international use of the web via phone is pretty spendy. We'll just assume that all is well and they are happily enjoying the WARMTH!

RE: What type brush to wash fiberglass camper?

I guess our fiberglass van is spoiled. She gets washed with a lamb's wool mop head (from Camping World.)

RE: Found Dogs

I'll bet the owners were moving and the dogs got loose and tried to get back to their old home. Thanks so much for trying to help them. I hope the family is found soon.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

I call cataract surgery "the happiest surgery of all!" The way they do it now, you don't even disrobe, just take off shoes. and then you walk out of the operating room into a whole new world of light. We don't even know how much we're missing until that "veil" is lifted. I remember marveling at white paper, white refrigerator, etc, when everything had been beige. Okay, the drops are a bit of a pain, but otherwise this surgery is a miracle. How lucky we are to live in a time when it is possible and even routine.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

I would put the decal on a window rather than metal. When you take decals off an RV body they leave a mark. Tell the Decal company you need the decal for a window and they'll put the adhesive on the front, rather than the back. We've seen RV's with decals of their grandkids looking out the back side windows. So realistic it took a minute to sink in!

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Very good idea! Then put a print of that beautiful photo of Fella looking up at you in a side window. Bet you'll find some old friends.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Here in So Cal we got taken to the creek yesterday and scrubbed within an inch of our lives like mama used to do when we came in the house muddy. 30" of rain so far this season! Yippee! Is the drought over yet?

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

I Love tuxedo cats, as one was my first love as a child. Their black is so shiny and inky, their white literally as cool as snow. What a happy, useful life, Alex led. Congratulations on your promotion, sweet buddy. Job well done.
