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

Good morning everyone. Dale and Terry hope you have a great weekend. Things here are hectic. Trying to get out of town next week and everything is backing up on us. Just got word granddaughter is sick was supposed to take care of Hazel and Bentley so we will have to pick them up and bring them to our house while Jeff and Allison go visit Josh and Maddie. The older I get the less flexible I become. I seem to stress out at the smallest thing when it doesn't fit into our plans and adjustments are needed to make things work out. Sue is just full speed ahead and Dang the torpedoes. I had plans for today that just got blown out of the waters, so what the heck. Better get going so I can keep up with Sue. Have a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. It is a foggy cool morning here at Camp Dixie. I just finished feeding the fur babies and myself. Today I will clean the camper inside and out to get ready for our trip to Blakely, Georgia to visit daughter Robin. I feel we have all issues repaired on the Montana and now ready for our summer travels. The Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue is going strong. It is amazing how Margie keeps things going. She and Barry work hard every day to keep the finances coming in as well as providing health care and foster homes for all the rescues that are brought in. Visit the Old Fella web page to keep up with all that is going on. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Camping World sent someone to the house to repair the holding tank gate valves this afternoon. He replaced all the cables and valves. When he was finished we filled tanks with water and waited to see if they leaked. Happy to say all is fixed and now we are ready to hit the road.

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

Hi all just checking in we are on our first trip in the new motor home. Because of reading this thread our first stop was Riverside RV park on our way to Huntington Beach State Park SC. We love it here had to dive in the rain but missed it on the beach. We liked Riverside so well we are staying 2 nights on the way home and taking friends to see the Dixie Stampede for their anniversary. Beautiful trip but very sad my Nacho (15 year old chi) is on his last trip, he is now blind and not enjoying life much. He is actually doing better on vacation than at home it's just so sad. However he is a very well traveled dog who has led a great life. Just sucks getting old. Thank you all for the advice on great dog friendly places and advice on old dogs. So glad you have your new motorhome. Now that you know where Riverside RV Park is you may want to sign up for the Old Fella Rally while you are there. Just tell the front office you want to register for the Old Fella Rally and they will put you in with the group. Most of us are staying for two weeks just having a great time with the fall colors and enjoying each others company.

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

Haven't checked in for awhile and it seems I missed your birthday Richard. So Happy Belated Birthday. I'm sure your day was special. Still recovering from the back surgery. No more pain anymore at all. Have aches when I get up and after riding in the car, so still take an occasional pain pill. We aren't moving the motorhome until May 13. . . home I can help by then. We had our yearly doctor appointments this week and all is well. Terry still has to see his cardio-electro-physiologist next week. Duchess saw her regular vet. Her cataracts have become dense, but she isn't blind yet. He wants me to up her insulin 1/2 unit this week and then do a curve. Then another 1/2 unit next week to get her in the 150-200 range for blood sugar. I keep remembering what you recommended Dr. Doug. . . below 180 to avoid complications. You and my vet have always been on the same page. Have a great day everyone! Dale Dale so glad you are doing well. I have had you in my prayers so glad they are being answered. Duchess is lucky to have you as parents to take care of her. Be safe in your travels.

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

Good morning everyone. It is a beautiful morning here in the Deep South. Hope all is well with everyone and you are looking forward to a great day. We had a good evening at church yesterday. Otis Forest is our pianist at church. He is so talented and has won many awards in his years of recording gospel music in Nashville. Anyway he asked me Sunday what songs did I like and if he knew them he would play then Wednesday night in honor of my birthday. So last night he played Wind Beneath My Wings and Blessed Assurance as an opening to our worship service. I was so blessed. Sue is out walking the girls while Izzie is limping around the house. He is having a hard time this morning. Camping World is sending someone to the house today to repair the valves for the black water tank and the grey water tank. This will be the forth time for them to try and fix the problem. They have been patching and adjusting things around instead of replacing defective parts. This time they are supposed to be replacing cables and gate valves, we will see. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

Richard, I don't know if you remember, but Tia was put down years ago when she became aggressive towards the family and their baby. I remember..... but always wondered what was the real story?

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

Good morning everyone. Next month will be ten years that a three legged dog left Waynesboro, Georgia in its way to Washington State traveling by seven different transports. The first leg was to Tennessee then on to other stops with campers sharing their rigs and time to deliver Anna, later her name was changed to Tia by her new owners, to her forever home in Washington. The event was covered by NBC and the Discovery Channel. NBC kept track of each exchange and marked the distance traveled each day until the final exchange. Highways Magazine also covered the story. Maybe if some of the people involved are reading this post you will respond with some details of the trip. All is well here at Camp Dixie. The fur gang is up and ready for the day while the humans are still gathering strength. Hope all is well with everyone this morning and you are looking forward to a great day. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. It is cool outside this morning and partly cloudy. Yesterday we got three inches of rain in some areas. It was cold and the wind blew all day driving the rain like a water fall at times. Suzie and Hobo went out several times but really want to. Izzie slept most of the day. Sue and I are doing well, just taking life easy and enjoying retirement. Sue has a hard time doing nothing, its not like her to sit around all day, she has to stay busy. Still waiting on the camper to be finished so we can bring it home and plan our next trip. Today the high will be in the low 70's with partly cloudy skies. Thinking about the Old Fella Rally in October. This year I am excited to see everyone and enjoy the evenings around a campfire. I hope all is well with everyone. I have t get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Nice pictures of Murphy. It is still raining and cold here in the Deep South this morning. I guess I will stay close to home today and wait for tomorrow with warmer and dry weather. Everyone here is happy and safe. I will be brief this morning so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Thanks Sgt. Joe for the birthday wish. I am so grateful that I have seen seventy-six birthdays. I am so blessed with family, friends, health and church. It is raining this morning and the forecast is for rain all day with highs in the upper 50's. Yesterday it was in the upper 70's with the wind blowing all day. The girls enjoyed the day along with Izzie. Sue is such a trooper and so full of energy We were talking this morning at the breakfast table and I asked her, did she ever think she would be married to a seventy-six year old man at her young age of 65? She laughed and said to me, this is all a part of God's plan, just glad I am still here and to be a part of your life. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. We are in for a weather change tomorrow and Monday. The high on Sunday will be 61* and Monday it will be 60*. At lest it won't be cold but rain is in the forecast with the cooler temperatures. Sue is out for a walk with the girls while Izzie is on the patio deck warming himself in the sunshine. Sunday the Greenville family will join us in church and then we go out for lunch to celebrate. I hope all is well with everyone and you are having a great weekend. Sue and I are going to the flea market on Whitehorse Road this morning so she can buy some books to read. I am still reading the book "Until Tuesday". Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

That's okay, Richard, we've all had our challenges with spellchecker; they haven't quite got it right yet. Some typos though are just too funny to resist, and I've known pugs that could be an energy source all by themselves :W Oh, BTW, today is the day I celebrate Hannah's birthday, and marks exactly 1 1/2 years since I adopted her. She is 3 years old today, and still very much a puppy. Happy birthday to Hannah. http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/images.jpg

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

Good morning everyone. The "pug" should have been "plug". I guess my typo's are getting worse lately. When I post using the phone it sometimes puts in words it thinks I want. It can change the whole meaning of a sentence if I am not careful in editing the post before I post it. This morning it is just beautiful outside. The fresh mowed lawn looks good. We have had rain lately making every look good and refreshed outside. I damaged the deck on the mower yesterday when I turn and hit a big root of a Pine Tree. One of the braces that supports one of the wheels that keeps the deck level got bent really bad. I tried to straighten it as best I could, but it isn't right so I will have to take it to the shop and get it repaired. The brace is welded to the deck so I don't know what they can do to fix it. I saw on facebook where three Old Fella dogs were stolen and recovered, glad there was a happy ending to that story. The fur gang is well this morning. Izzie has gotten better lately. He is such a trooper, hard to keep him down. Maybe today I will be able to pick up the Montana and start making plans to go see daughter Robin. Sue has gotten interested in Bat Cave, North Carolina near Asheville, we'll see. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them. Hope all is well with everyone and you are planning on a great weekend.

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

Richard, run the cost of solar panels vs generator. Just a thought? We have a plug in the camper for solar power hookup. So how many solar panels would it take to power the camper?
Dixie Flyer 04/20/17 11:36am RV Pet Stop
RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Richard how often would you use the portable generator? If it is only when you visite Sue's family is there a place near them you could rent a generator? If the cost benefits renting vs buying? Just a thought. I emailed John and asked if he would check into us being able rent a generator while we were there.

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

Good morning everyone. This morning is very nice outside. Yesterday we got more rain so the yard is looking great. I took the camper in for repairs and on the way home I got sick, spent the rest of the day doing nothing but resting. I feel better this morning, whatever it was has passed. Sue is out with Hobo and Suzie taking their morning walk. Last night we went kind of late but wanted to make sure the girls would be comfortable through the night without worries if having to potty and such. Izzie is doing well. He ate this morning and talked to us his night and how grateful he was to be fed this morning. Next week I think we will go to Blakely to visit Robin and her husband Ed. From there we may go to the Gulf. The auxiliary tank is working like it should. This will give us about 600 miles between fuel stops instead of 200 miles. I looked at portable generators yesterday while I was at Camping World. maybe that is what made me sick. Anyway I just don't know what to do about external power when we don't have electricity this summer when we visit Sue's brother John. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. Burch I hope Murphy gets better. Levi our Australian Shepherd has issues with skin problems and would break out with a mad itch where he would chew raw places on his skin and pull the hair out. We would take him to Dr. Alexandra and he would give him a shot and some ointment for the skin. He would have to wear one of those cone collars to keep him from chewing on himself which he didn't care for at all. It was a seasonal thing it seems to me now. I can't remember if it was spring or fall, but on of the two. Anyway all is well here in the Deep South. It is raining this morning with cool temps out side. The fur gang is well and so is Sue. I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.

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

Good morning everyone. We got some much needed rain yesterday and last night. The temperature at night has warmed up a great deal with the lows in the mid 60's. This morning the grass and plants in the yard look so good. Hobo did very well on our weekend camping trip. We used the Pet Loader steps for her and that makes all the difference in the world for her. The large platforms allows her to put all four paws on the same level before she has to make another step. I can't see that she is losing any weight, but we will keep trying. Suzie's days of playing in the water are over. Without Peaches' encouragement Suzie won't go into the water. I threw object into the water for her to fetch. She would run to the water's edge and stop, then look at me as if to say You must think I am going to swim after that stick? She then turns around and goes about her business along the water's edge. When we got home Izzie was very talkative. He meowed us all afternoon and last night. Sue put him in the bed with us last night for a short while, too bad he can't jump up and down from the bed anymore. He can't sleep with us anymore because of his having to use the box at night. If he is in our bed he can't get down to take care of business. We had a wonderful time at Modoc. I get to relive all the adventures of Old Fella each time we go. It doesn't seem like it has been twelve years since we first met him. I miss the times we had together and all the travels we experienced. The last three and a half years of his life must have been heaven on earth for him. I know he was happy as he showed us every day his love and devotion for family and friends. There are some memories we all have that takes us back to a time when all was well in Camelot. Everything and everyone was at peace and the world was happy with all of its beings and splendor was the main theme of the day. This is what I feel when I think of Old Fella and the life he brought to all who came to know him. If only we could live a life where all is at peace and all troubles were banished and each morning we would awake to see the one who makes all things wonderful and know we live in the care of one who gives unconditional love. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
