RE: Lost my travel companion

I am so sorry for your loss and also for your family's and your daughter's grief. We recognize the problem all too well. We had 15 years of saving our 5 lb chi mix Poquita's life. At the park, an unleashed dog would run up to check out what kind of critter she was. It seems that she hit those dogs' radar the same as a rabbit or squirrel. Dogs still have that primitive urge,and sometimes it takes over for a second, even though they "know" the unfortunate little one. What a heart breaker. Just so sorry.

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

Just got all the windows boarded up. The only thing I am a little concerned about is I have a triple sliding glass door that goes out to my porch. I don't have any more wood so hopefully they will hold. well. \ Burch\ Burch, Bud (FL native) says can you tape those glass doors, top to bottom amd criss-cross left to right? Both sides would be good. I think I would use our old friend Duct Tape. Good luck to you!

RE: Give me a tornado anyday over a hurricane

I'll take my snow and ocassional hailstorm. Nice and quiet up here in Michigan usually. If you cannot get out, be sure to put your legal name and SS number on your arms in waterproof ink so they can identify your body more easily. Saves time and money. Yep. quakes are easier, except for those darned aftershocks that slap you upside your head about the time you think everything is over. We worked to help Hurricane Katrina survivors and when we heard their stories and about their losses, we said "Bring on those DRY California shakers anytime!"

RE: Grumpy Cat move over, Hurricane Harvey Cat wins!

Aw, poor kitty! He looks madder than the proverbial wet hen! Probably even more so because some dummy is taking his photo! Cats do have their dignity to preserve!

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Let us know you and your posse survived Harvey when you can. Sounds like a nightmare!

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Do you know this song? Kids learn it in kindergarten. "When it's raining rain and people complain and folks don't give a shucks, Don't you yell, just say "Well, lovely weather for ducks!" p.s.The ducks must be ecstatic where you live!

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

Oh, oh. Will you be in trouble if you ask her to read the owner's manual on the new unit? Even if you buy the "insurance" at the time of purchase, it will be null and void if she's puts "contraband" into it. A small garbage pail under the sink with a hefty bag liner is where all the no-go scraps go. Unless you have chickens. :)

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

Richard, when you get the new disposal, be sure you and Sue read the owner's manual. There's a list of things you never ask that poor machine to do. Like chew up and swallow potato peels, celery scraps, etc. If it would help, make a list of no-goes on an index card and pin it near the sink. Bud used to be an appliance repairman and it was amazing what people try to put in a disposal.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Here in SoCal, we were on water restrictions last year, too. Funny, after a few months the Water Co sent notices telling us to go ahead and do that extra load of wash, take a long shower, flush EVERY time! Oh, the luxury! Not that we suddenly had more available water, No, but the WC shareholders were mighty worried and the drop in monthly income. Back to our wasteful Cali ways!

RE: Pebbles first trip out

We used to camp with 5 lb Poquita and I would just let you know that big dogs are curious (like "What is that? Cat? Squirrel?" and will come running up, sometimes off-leash. Of course they mean to harm but it was sometimes scary. We kept her in a harness with leash attached so we could "airborne express" her iback up to our arms if need be. She made it to 15 years without a scratch. :) Miss that little chigger.

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

When we had to put Poquita down, it was traumatic as she had awakened in the middle of the night with back pain. We went to vet emergency and when we got back, Rosie looked from one of us to the other and to the door behind us for Poquita. I did what someone I knew had suggested. I held my two empty hands out in front of me, saying"Poquita is all gone in a sad voice. ." A look of comprehension crossed Rosie's face and she never looked for Poquita again.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Wpw. feathers, beaks and claws will be a challenge for her to digest. Pigeons are rather dumb, though, as far as birds go. Some dogs are hunters. Our min pin is kept on a short leash, for that reason. She ate (and digested) a whole lot of lizards before we stpped letting her off leash. Nope, she never got salmonella!

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

Apple cider vinegar is an old time remedy for reflux (heartburn.) I might try a little dish of water for him with a drop of apple cider vinegar in it, just enough to taste. Unless doc objects, of course.

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

And that's why Bud never let me do transports or fostering. He knew I would want them all. Darn it. There is something in every dog to touch your heart. Only certain people can see it, though.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Very good! My folks used to quote an old adage: "If you wish to live and thrive, let a spider go alive." Such mercy did not extend to black widows, however.

RE: Is the vet profession, changing for the worse

Possibly related, I've noticed that vets don't say, "Your dog needs to lose weight" anymore. I assume it's because they've lost business that way. Also possibly because the dog's labs are perfect.

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.
