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

I love dogs and I hate to see an old, crippled one like what you described. I’d probably ask around if there was a dog shelter someplace nearby and make arrangements for him to be placed there. Otherwise, I would seriously consider taking him home. He deserves one.Kelly, since you are about 8 1/2 years late to this topic, I guess we can forgive you. :S I would ask you to read the whole topic from the beginning, but you will have to devote at least a whole week-end to the project. ;) BTW, Old Fella was very well taken care of, and had many friends and supporters during his lifetime.:)

RE: RG6 Coax

Another thing to check is your "over the air" antenna amplifier. Make sure it's not turned on at the same time you are trying to use your tailgater. Depending on your cabling set-up, this may have some effect.

Good that the rule outs eliminated some serious problems. ....Yes. Whenever I hear the word "bloat", it brings back some bad memories. We're sure glad Suzie is on the road to recovery.:)

RE: After giving your dog pills. Do you give them water?

Gretchen had always been a terrible pill taker, but since we have to give her a daily prednisone pill now, we have become somewhat "expert" with our routine. It is easier with two people, but I have done it by myself as well. Tilt patients head backPop the pill towards the back of the mouthQuickly, squirt a 3ml syringe of water towards back of the throatBy reflex, patient swallows water AND pillFavorite treat given immediately to chase the pill down. You can get that kind of needleless syringe at any pharmacy or vet office. Ours is 3ml, but something a little bigger would work just as well, like this one: https://sp2.yimg.com/ib/th?id=HN.608019222880781110&pid=15.1 BTW, good job on scoring the new Jeep, Calvin! I gave up on stick shifts many, many years ago.:C

RE: Cat Downers?

... a sheet over the crate....I'll toss something out as a purely anecdotal experience. Quite a few years ago, our now departed Missy (GSD mix) was a terrible traveler in the car/truck. For hours, non-stop panting, whining, pacing. She could NOT relax. We tried Rescue Remedy with not much success. At that time, we did not want to use any prescription meds, so we just "lived" with it. When we finally got to our destinations, Missy was just fine, back to her old normal self. Anyway, getting to the point, we finally realized that if we were traveling at night she was much calmer. She couldn't see the world whizzing by, which upset her sensibilities. I would by all means try covering the crate. It costs nothing, and might even work!:) BTW, we hate traveling at night, so we put up with a lot of years of traveling angst. We had never crated Missy, so we could not cover her's up. In retrospect, perhaps a black hood or blinders . . . . . :@

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

So sorry to hear that news. :( We are hoping that things start getting better around Camp Dixie, as there has been so much badness lately. At least we know Mama is in a place where badness does not exist.

RE: Happy Announcement

Woo Hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that you're "retired," prepare to get much busier.Yeah, I've found that to be true. My old boss pretty much left me alone because he realized I knew what I was doing. My present boss, not so much . . . . :E:W:B

RE: Here we ge again! ... Update; NO FOOD Problems!

.... The Boy and I would like to give a SPECIAL THANK YOU to Walter. For offering to stand up to Royal Canin's CEO for us! Thank you Walter! ... http://i141.photobucket.com/albums/r73/salem21_2006/thumbup.gif Awww . . . . shucks! :o BTW, and FYI, here is the response I got from Rachel at Royal Canin: Good Afternoon Walter Thank you for taking the time to contact Royal Canin. We appreciate your inquiry. The Hypoallergenic Selected Protein Adult PV is not being discontinued, however, due to unforeseen market conditions we have been experiencing difficulties in securing enough quality venison to produce the quantities required. Unfortunately, we anticipate that the supply challenges will continue, and result in periodic shortages of both the dry and wet diets. The product, however, is not being discontinued. Since our industry continues to be challenged by venison shortages, we have recently enhanced the Selected Protein PV dry formula to include hydrolyzed soy protein. The addition of soy protein will help to increase the availability of the PV and limit some of the on-going out of stock concerns with this formula. We are recommending a 7-10 day transition when starting the new Selected Protein PV to avoid any gastrointestinal upset. You can do this as follows: Days 1-3 75% old 25% new Days 4-6 50% old 50% new Days 7-9 75% new 25% old Day 10 100% new Unfortunately we do not have specific date to give you for when the Potato and Venison will be back in stock. We would recommend that you try the canned Hypoallergenic Selected Protein PV as that is in stock or consider a 7-10 day transition onto the Hydrolyzed Protein HP or the Selected Protein PR. Ask your Veterinarian today if these diets are a good choice for your pet. Please let me know if we can assist you again soon. Best wishes, Rachel

Since Royal Canin is a local company to me, maybe I'll just go over there and have a chat with the CEO!:M

USA vs Russia hockey game rant!

I am so upset!!!!! :M In the "olden days", a blacked out game would be rebroadcast on free TV the next day or later that night, in most cases. It's gonna be shown live on NBCSN in a few minutes. Now, the game is not going to be rebroadcast until a whole week later on "over the air" NBC. (On edit: Somehow my formatting got screwed up.)

RE: What I have learned about cold weather camping . . . . .

I keep a window open a little and run the furnace or a space heater to maintain temps....I tried the open window and/or vents during the two rainy days, but to no avail.:p Inside or outside, the air was saturated. Combine that with cold temps and single pane windows and ya get a big mess. :S

What I have learned about cold weather camping . . . . .

. . . . with two GSD's and one wife. :p We are in Gulf Shores right now, and although the weather has been MUCH better than at home in STL, there are still some "issues" with "cold" weather camping. The last two days have been in the upper 30's to lower 40's, with lots of rain. :E It's gonna be getting a lot better starting today, but what I have learned from the last two days is this: Two humans and two GSD's create a LOT of humidity in a camperCold weather, in combination with single pane windows, can create a LOT of condensation on said windowsYou can go through a LOT of paper towels wiping off windowsWallpaper that is in contact with aluminum window frames that are constantly wet can actually start peeling away from the walls at that pointThe most important thing I have learned about cold weather camping with two GSD's and one wife is to GET A DEHUMIDIFIER!!!

....We rushed home so that she could be in familiar surroundings....RIP, Rubie. You may have lost a battle, but you won a place in Heaven. Your story sounds much like ours did with Missy. :(

RE: Daisy crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday

Sigh . . . :( These times are always so sad, but one has to concentrate on all the good times that were had. I am sure Daisy does just that.
