RE: Hallie

Wow, it was painful just to read her "before" condition. How miserable, poor little Hallie must have been! The transformation is stunning. I hope the tumor is benign and she soon finds her forever home. It must feel so good to be able to help these dogs. Good job!

RE: Got a Vet appointment

One of our dear departed doggies was prone to the occasional bout of gastritis for no apparent reason. If nothing shows up as causing it in your girl, all you can do is respond quickly in the future. The vet gave us some pills to give Poquita at the first sign of gastric distress. Sometimes that was enough to ward off worse symptoms, and sometimes we ended up taking her to the vet anyway. She made it to age 15.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Foxes are not our favorites, along with coyotes. Both kill our pets. Hopefully WLToo will kill the fox and eliminate the threat. They have their place, though. A relative had fish & game come out and trap the fox in the woods behind his house. Now he's regretting it as the rabbit population has run amuck, making his garden a bunny grocery store.

RE: What to do with VHS and Hi8 tapes?

Wrace, Sam's sent a link for us to edit it on their server. We also were able to send that link to family members to view. DH didn't think it was necessary to edit so it didn't happen. In retrospect, it sure would have been a lot better, if we had.

RE: Got a Vet appointment

Are you at home or on the road? If on the road, type in Vet Emergency on your GPS or phone. If at home and you can't get in to see your vet, I'd find another vet clinic that will see her on an emergency basis. I hope she will be okay, but would not take a chance on waiting.

RE: What to do with VHS and Hi8 tapes?

We even had some 8mm and Super 8 film put on DVD. By the time DVD's are obsolete, we will be, too, so it's all good. :B

RE: Bad Gramer

I once saw a classified ad in a newspaper that someone had a Chester Drawers for sale. Still laughing about that one. I grew up thinking that was what they were called. I also was told to "Go sit on the Chesterfield" (sofa.) My folks were Oklahoma Dust Bowl refugees and used quite a lot of that strange terminology. By the time I got to high school, I had most of it teased out of me by brutal California kids.

RE: Bad Gramer

OP: What did Gramer do that was so bad? You need to have a little compassion as you, too, will be her age one day!

RE: What to do with VHS and Hi8 tapes?

Sam's does it. They send you a link so you can edit it before they burn the DVD. We didn't edit and that was a big mistake. You end up paying by the foot and there is plenty of junk footage you can perfectly well do without. They give you back the originals. We've still got them, but I don't know why.

RE: First camping trip with the dog

When we got our RV, I too was worried that my multi-trips to the potty (thanks, ol' thimble bladder!) would cause the pups to think it was morning. As others predicted, that turned out to be a non-issue. The dogs caught on to the routine immediately and were just thrilled to be with us, no matter where we were going. The only thing I would caution is to never exit the RV early mornings without first doing a check for wildlife. They can smell your dogs and there have been reports of a pooch being snatched away from the owner, even if on leash.

RE: What Brand Dog Food do you Feed Your Dog and Why?

re: the store where you get the Royal Canin, have you asked them what it would take for them to carry Wellness? Or maybe write to Wellness and ask the same question. How are the wees doing on the RC?

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

If it's lumpy jaw, she's starving, poor thing. The local feed store might know more about that disease. I wonder how long she's had it and if that had anything to do with her seeking out human contact? Lion with a thorn in his paw? Could be another interesting turn in your book.

RE: Slipping feet

Is there some kind of adhesive or do they just slide on? The dogs don't try to pull them off with their teeth? Our old vet had a highly polished, dark vinyl floor in his waiting room. I've seen some dogs get to the doorway and stand there and bawl, so I can appreciate the usefulness.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

A thought, have you ruled out this: Lumpy Jaw Disease So sad that it would happen to such a special doe.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Animals can sense a kind heart, even in a strange, two-legged creature. We're lucky if even once in a lifetime, we get to be half of that treasured relationship,

RE: Another Star in the Heavens

What a gorgeous girl! Fifteen years is a very good run, but it's never quite long enough. Our heartfelt sympathies...

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

Me, too! And I am continually impressed with the fabulous job your parents did at instilling a work ethic and a spirit of cooperation among you lads! Also, with your personal ability to visualize and carry through a project that would challenge Michelangelo. I can say "lads" because I have Scottish blood running through my veins and recognize many traits of my own late father in you. I don't think the man ever paid anyone to build or repair anything in his life. Anyway, I am quite proud of you, and will be delighted to see both the finished garage and the van one day.

RE: MissC has passed on

Darn it, nine years is not nearly enough! Missy was a gorgeous little dog. I know you miss her terribly. There is so much personality in those tiny little bodies. We have lost two chi (mixes) in recent years so we understand. Thank you for sharing her pictures and her story. My heart goes out to you in such a painful and recent loss. Eventually you will smile when you think of her, instead of shedding a tear. Be brave, she is in your heart forever.

RE: Looking for ideas for a good dog name

Thanks for all your suggestions! I love them all! We decided he exhibits a lot of the properties of the scientific element Mercury. So, Mercury he is, and he is known as Merc or Merky for short! Slippery little dickens, is he? :W One thing is for sure, nobody else's dog will come running when you call him! :B
