RE: Add me to the list of diabetic-dog owners....

Aww, how great that Jimmy comes to you when he sees the syringe. How is Ben reacting to all the special attention Jimmy is getting?

RE: Miserable

When our next door neighbors had yappy little dogs that were left outside all day, we invested in one of those ultrasonic bark control units. Funny thing, it did not faze the neighbor's neurotic little mutts.

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

When our Rosie (chiwa-what?) tore a tendon in a hind leg, our old country vet (who we loved) wanted us to crate her and wait for it to heal. I looked into Rosie's eyes and saw constant pain and confusion. It would never have healed, so we called a vet orthopedic surgeon and spent $3k to have it repaired. I was right, BTW, the surgeon said the injury was beyond healing itself. Rosie ended up with pins and straps put in her leg and we bit our nails while she was in the operating room as if she was one of our kids. It turned out well and Rosie had a few more good years. When we brought her home, she was a little altered from the pain and meds and would growl if we tried to touch her. I bought her a flat, fluffy bed that she didn't have to climb into . She healed very nicely and we never regretted doing the surgery.

RE: Love the comments

When one of our small dogs had arthritis and the other was in congestive heart failure, we started taking them walking with us in a dog stroller. Some people would make remarks about the girls being too lazy to walk on their own. I altered an image of a handicapped placard and put the two dogs photo on it. No more rude remarks and many thumbs up. The dogs just loved those outings in their buggy.

RE: Tumor removal (update page 2)

Yay, Mikko! I hope he is not in too much pain, that's such a sensitive area. Wonderful that it was not a malignancy. It's such a worry anytime they need surgery. You must be sleeping much easier tonight.

RE: nail file for my dog?

If you check your local beauty supply, a cordless dremel will likely be less expensive than a pet supply. For a large dog, though, you will need the pet version.

RE: The hummers sure like our feeder!!!

When our son was real little, he decided that bees were the first stage of birds. I suppose that made as much sense as caterpillars morphing into butterflies. :)

RE: Slip Covers for cats

Sorry, I can't help it. Every time I see this topic, I get a mental picture of my orange tabby, Edna, wearing a lovely floral print. If I was handy with photo shop, I'd do that. :)

RE: Maybe I am doing it wrong

Our orange tabby Edna died last year at age 19. We got her at 5 weeks old and never in her life would she ever eat any kind of canned cat food. I had never seen a cat like that. We free-fed Edna, left the dry food in one of those little hoppers so she could get it when she wanted it. She loved snacking and would take a piece or two of kibble and go about her business. She was never overweight and had a beautiful coat all her life. When she was young, she loved Deli-Cat which is carried at the grocery store. I am sure cat experts would be horrified at that, but it was Edna's favorite. When she got older, her belly couldn't handle Deli-Cat anymore, so we switched to a senior cat formula, still the dry type. She also loved treats. I think it is more the idea that it is from your hand, makes it special, so you might try feeding Rowdy just one kibble at a time. And yes, cats do like to get between you and whatever is taking your attention, whether TV, a newspaper or computer. You are doing great with her. :)

RE: Slip Covers for cats

There's been times when I wished we had a cat bag like that, quick evac and such. However, my cats had this ability to turn their body into toothpaste and squeeze out of almost any kind of containment. :)

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus the Christmas Cat

Oh, wow! Good for Mom, recovering from the accident like a champ! Those depression era kids are made of different stuff. My mom passed @ 93 and would've slept on a picket fence and never complain. I can sympathize with your mom's miseries. The ribs contain an "alarm system" meant to get the owner's attention because of all the vital organs inside. Oh boy, do I remember that rib pain years later! Good luck sorting Mom's lifetime collection o' stuff. They do get attached to all their treasures and can tell you how they acquired every single thing. The polyester bolts should be safe to toss, though. Not to worry, the cats will find your cricket in no time.

RE: Daschund

Yours is a beautiful story, too, Charlie D. I just love it when a non-pet lover is "converted." It is truly a life-changing experience.

RE: Woman w/Dog in car goes under water Louisiana flood

The NEWS yesterday looked an awful lot like Katrina footage. I will never forget watching dogs paddling after rescue boats. TG for brave people like these rescuers. It looks like the dog just swam out when she saw the chance. Mine would have drowned because we always have them buckled in. But that's why we don't live in the gulf area with all of the hubs relatives. I'll stay right here in Cali and take my chances with an earthquake every 20 years.

RE: Pup health issues

Penny saw an ophthalmologist and a neurologist. They have no answers. Said it just happens to some young dogs (she's 3). They'd be more concerned if she was older. Told me to watch for other symptoms... walking weird, loss of appetite, seizures, etc. They said I could have an MRI done, which "might" show more, but at $3,500, I said "no thank you". We'll keep a close eye on her. Thanks everyone for your concern. Agnes These "kids" just like to scare us every now and then! was the vet specialist able to tell if her vision is normal? I hope all is well with Penny.

What a cute cuddle-bug! What a gorgeous boy Dexter is! Beautiful markings! Do you breed Corgis, too?

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

Rosie had a torn ACL a few years ago. She had her foot under my chair when I moved the wheels,caught her foot and she pulled away. $3k with a vet surgeon. I would do the surgery all over again, though.

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

Oh, my. I, too, an so sorry for reading the forum "on automatic pilot" and not letting the full extent of your loss sink in. Even worse, is not responding. A few years ago, we lost two of our girls rather close together and the notes from other members meant a lot to me. I am glad to see that you still have some pets, but I know that your other three are missed terribly. I don't even know how long it takes to look at their photos without getting teary. ((HUGS)) Judy
