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

Good morning everyone. The dry hot weather continues. It is dangerous outside with this heat. One can become overheated quickly and suffer a heat stroke. The fur gang stays inside only go out to take care of business. Later when the sun starts to set they go out and enjoy that part of the day that is not so hot. I got a call from Tennessee RV in Knoxville to say the motorhome will be ready next week. Sue and I will make arrangements to pick it up. WE had emptied it completely before taking it to them thinking we were going to let them sell it for us and be done with it. Once we got there and talked with them we decided to get it repaired and bring it back home, enjoy it for the rest of this year and after the first of next year look at it again. I hope all is well with everyone. I sent a private email to Chris and Pat expressing my sorrow for not acknowledging the post about losing her pets. She accepted my apology and said she would be okay. My son Scott has picked up a new hobby. He bought a very nice Kayak. He has been fishing the creeks, ponds and Savannah River and posting his adventures on facebook. He found out his little dog Olie has a heart murmur Olie's is kind of serious. The vet told him they range them from 1-6 in severity. The vet rated his as a 4. The vet put Olie on some medication to help, but it has Scott worried. 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}

I don't know what happened but the email from this thread goes to my junk file labeled DONOTREPLY@rvnet I can open it by saying its safe, then its sent to my regular email .....Any one know how to fix this????? This has been going on for weeks now. I don't understand why this is happening unless RV.NET has changed the way you are notified. I have to be careful with this as my computer is set to dump junk email. I would like for the notifications from RV.NET would come to me inbox like it used to.

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

My Dad passed away July 9 at the age of 91. I am sorry to hear of your dad's passing. At 91 he had a long life. I hope your Scottie is comfortable and I know he is being loved and cared for. Sometimes a person can get so wrapped up in their own set of circumstances they cannot see someone else who needs some kind words of encouragement. I am afraid I am guilty of just that lately. I apologies to any who may have felt neglected in recent weeks. Sue and I are trying to shuffle our thoughts around recent events and come up with solutions. I am afraid we bought the motorhome at a bad time. However we will work through it with God's help. Sue's retirement came about when the Government business went from bad to worse and she was forced to make a decision about shutting it down. We had told the kids we were spending their inheritance, but in reality we were spending our retirement. The fur gang is well. Peaches and Hobo are on their meds and showing signs of improvement. On the good news side I have a prospect on the 73 Lincoln. He is making a trip to Piedmont to look at it next Thursday. It is such a nice car and a real beauty, hate to sell it but by doing so we can retire some debt. 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. Chris and Pat thinking of you and hope you have a great day.

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

I'm not soliciting for symphony but a week ago I post that I lost all three of my sweet sweet cockers in a five month period. Evidently this is a closed group here because not one of you even bothered to acknowledge that I even posted. I understand things change but I didn't think it would ever get this cold. I hope we are never closed to anyone who posts on this thread and expresses a heart felt sorrow such as losing a companion pet. I looked back at your post and was very disappointed that me nor anyone else didn't acknowledge your post. No excuse is valid for what happened and I am deeply sorry not only for your loss but for the way your post went unanswered. Truly we are a family here but we also want everyone who comes here to feel a part of this family. Please forgive us and keep coming back, you are always welcome.

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

Good morning everyone. The trip to the vet yesterday didn't really turn up anything earth shattering. The Verdin suspects Hobo may have had a reaction to either a seizure or a problem with blood flow to the brain. He found a heart mummer that no one has detected in past visits. She has a slight cough which may be a sign of heart congestion. She definitely has some bad hips so he gave some medications for that. Now it is watch, wait and see what happens next. We finally have come up with a number for her age. Hobo came to us January 2009 when she was about 3-4 years old. So she has to be about 10-11 years old. Now the alarm bells go off as we realize how old she is and the potential problems she will face in the future. Mama lived to be 15 years old. It was her hips that finally put her down. So with all this information we have about large older dogs we know Hobo's clock is ticking. Peaches is doing well with the new meds. She is hopping, skipping and frisky again. There are signs she is suffering from dementia, but seems to be doing well otherwise. I hope all is well in Texas, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, New York, California, Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, and all of the other fine states. I got started and realized I couldn't leave out any states we have friends for fear of offending someone. Anyway I hope all is well with everyone wherever you are. 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. Hobo seems to be doing okay this morning. Nevertheless I am still taking her to see Dr. Verdin today. Boy is the weather hot. It was close to 100 degrees on the back porch yesterday. Glad the yard work is done for a while. Soon August will be here and the September time to gather fire wood for the winter, I wonder if it will be as cold this winter as it has been hot this summer? Thinking ahead to the rally in October. I am starting to think about the raffle and what to get for that. I am going to have to really come up with some creative thinking on entertainment for the folks in October. Oaky 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.

http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b251/Dixieflyer2/Sarah2.png Dan and Lori's sweet Sarah. Sarah passed to Rainbow Bridge a few weeks ago. She was a rescue that Sue and I fostered until she was able to travel to Ohio to her forever home with Dan and Lori. She was such a sweet soul and she lived a very happy life for 7 1/2 years. Glad Sue and I got to see her on our lasr visit.

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

Going back over the early morning event with Hobo Sue and I agree it wasn't a seizure. She was in stress because she wanted to get up and couldn't. She felt she was in trouble because she pooped in the house. Once outside on the wooden deck she was wagging her tail trying to get up and just couldn't get to her feet. Sue and I brought her back into the house and gave her something for pain tramadol and rimadyl. This morning she was up and moving around and today she has been fine. She was favoring her right rear leg earlier today but not now. We just went outside and she followed and acted as if she was okay. Tomorrow I will take her to the vet and see what he can figure out.:h

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

Good morning everyone. Something happed to Hobo this morning about 5:am. I heard thrashing on the floor like someone struggling, It was Hobo lying next to the door that leads outside. She couldn't get to her feet. She had pooped on the rug which was not like her at all. I tried to get her to her feet and she could not stand or walk. She and I put a towel under her, I gave her some rimadyl and tramadol hoping that would make her feel better. This morning she was able to get to her feet and went outside to take care of business and came back in. She ate her breakfast and is now resting. She is weak on her right rear leg, I guess another trip to the vet to see what's going on. I was opening a can of dog food this morning and cut my hand pretty bad, It is still bleeding. I hope everyone's day starts better than ours. I will close 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}

the heat here in Texas is as close to Hell as you can get//// I have had AC problems and waiting for the repair guy for a week but he is coming TODAY....My poor dogs are suffering, I soak them in water to cool them down...I bought a window unit and there is only one window that I hope it will fit into....we shall see how it goes today/ There is NO SHADE where I am parked, full sun all day...... at least I have a floor AC and fans Hope Peaches and Izzy are well Bless you for all you do////// Hope you get some relief soon. It is 92 degrees here in the Deep South. We went to the Jockey Lot in Anderson, SC this morning just to see what was there. It is a huge flea market The thing that made me so sad is all the puppies for sale exhibited in small cages in this heat. I am sure some won't survive the day.

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

Good morning everyone. It is so hot outside. The heat index will be in the triple digits today and will remain that way for another week. Dan sent me pictures of Sarah this morning. It really hurts that she has passed to Rainbow Bridge. Such a sweet soul and so glad we got to see her just a few weeks ago. I hope all is well with everyone. Sue and I are going to the Jockey Lot in Anderson this morning, never been so we are going to see what's there. Okay I need to get moving so I will close for now wishing everyone a blessed day.

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

Good morning everyone. SGT Joe I am glad you are enjoying your first week of full timing. I hope Rocky's eye continues to heal. Our daughter Allison had two Shih Tzus, both were very nice dogs. Murray the cat making himself at home in the motorhome must be a relief for you. Our cat Izzie does not like to leave home and certainly doesn't take to riding in a vehicle. TugCE, Macy and Sandi remind me of our Dobbie named Bart. I was teaching him to balance cookies on his nose and them flip them into the air and catch it before it hit the floor. We were in the kitchen when the phone rang, I had just balanced a cookie on his nose. I didn't plan to be gone long, but it took longer to take the call than I expected. When I returned to the kitchen there was Bart with the cookie on his nose, shivering all over with a pool of drool on the floor. Where is the camera when you need it. Rosie and Art be careful on your trip to Nashville. I spent time there back in the 70's working with GRT records. Walter and Garland how are you doing? It won't be long before we see each other in Sevierville. Dr. Doug and Sandy haven't heard from you in a while. Metalgator how are things in Florida. Hoops hope all is well with you and the gang. Dan and Patty it was great to see you while we visited Dan and Lori. Colliehauler I still haven't heard from Barry about the memorial bricks. Dogdiva how are things in Texas. Charles and Charlotte where are you? Campincandice saw you on the thread a few days back, need to hear from you more often. Dan and Lori you need to come visit us before the rally in October and we can travel together to Sevierville. 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. It has been quiet on the thread lately. I guess most folks are busy and traveling. We are still waiting on the Motorhome and it looks like it will be mid August before it is completed. The Old Fella Burke County Rescue has taken on the task of rescuing cats and kittens. The NES has been accepting them on their transport which makes it easier to rescue and find homes for them. It was always difficult finding homes for the kittens and adult cats. In the past there were more coming in than was going out which made Old Fella a permanent home for them. But now there is hope with the NES in New England taking them and finding homes for them. The summer heat is really bad this year. It has been in the nineties for a long time here in the Deep South with no relief in sight. Last night I watched a big thunderstorm off in the distance as it went around us. The sky was a continuous show of lightening as its charges danced across the night sky. It never came near us as it skirted away from us toward the North East. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer. I have 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}

Message from Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue: One of the biggest struggles we have had over the past 9 years has been with the homeless cats of Burke County. Without good outcomes available (through adoption or transport), Old Fella volunteers have only rescued relatively few over the years. In the past, our only option was to spay/neuter as many as possible, and then send them back to their rescuers or to the feral cat colony they came from.. This year, our wonderful partner shelter has started taking in our rescued felines. So far this year, we have sent 75 kittens and cats on transports and currently have approximately 40 waiting to go. The number of felines we have been able to rescue this year alone is more than 4 times the number we have been able to rescue, in 9 years! We are all so thankful for the ability to now help the unwanted kittens born in our county; however, it comes at a big expense to us. All felines require at least 2 vaccines, a blood test (one per litter or adult), a fecal test and multiple wormings, flea control, oral meds, etc. On average each kitten/cat costs us at least $100. Without adoption fees, we must find the funds to cover these new expenses. In fact, we need more than just funds for our Old Fella Felines Program to continue to succeed. We need foster homes. Currently we have only 3 foster homes willing to take in cats/kittens. The remainder of them are at the city shelter. Remaining in the shelter is just not a good situation. In close quarters, cats get sick quickly. The space is small and the numbers great. If you are able to take in just 2 kittens or a litter, please let us know. Old Fella Rescue will provide all medical care, food, and supplies needed. Most kittens only require foster for 6 weeks or less. In addition to foster homes and financial donations, we need Purina Kitten Chow and clumping cat litter, or donations of Walmart and Tractor Supply gift cards so fosters can pick up food and litter as needed. Friends, we need your help and support as much as the homeless felines need us. Please consider fostering. If you can’t foster, please donate, and share.

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

Good morning everyone. Yesterday was a busy day. It was hot, muggy and the threat of thunderstorms lingered in the air all day. I got the driver's door window repaired on the 73 Lincoln and discovered that the exhaust manifold was leaking which will require the manifold be removed and new gasket installed. Went to a car show in the afternoon and drew a few lookers on the 73 Lincoln. Caught Peaches eating dog poop out of the yard last night when we went out for the final trip of the day to take care of business. With me standing right next to her she could resist tasting the poop. Needless to say I reacted to her intent, but I really believe she will do it again no matter if I am with her or not. She is not helping herself at all. Suzie and Hobo are doing well. Izzie is still king of the castle. Me, well I am surrounded by females from all over the family. Ava, Allison, Sue, Holly, Emily, Maddie, Robin, Suzie, Hobo and Peaches. I love it! I know my place in this chain of command and have adjusted to it a long time ago. They are gracious and give the old man his space and the illusion that he is still in control. 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 had lots of rain late yesterday afternoon. The problem was it came all at one time, 1 1/4 inch. Today I have to take the 73 Lincoln to Easley to have the drivers door window repaired. This time the window is going to be disabled until we can come up with a better fix. The fur gang is doing well. Izzie went out early this morning and is currently on the deck surveying his back yard domain. Hobo, Peaches and Suzie have eaten breakfast and now waiting to go for a walk. Found out yesterday one of our neighbors is selling their house and getting a divorce. Too bad for they seemed like such a nice couple. Their dog Sophie is such a showboat. Golden Retriever with so much personality. When Sophie goes for a walk with her owner she stops at our house and lets Suzie know she is outside and wants to play. I am so concerned about our future with Sue's retirement. I am sure of one thing and that is our camping days will be over after October. So we will make the most of this year's Old Fella Rally in Sevierville. I am praying for a miracle that in some fashion we will be able to travel take some short trips, so we will see what happens. I think I need to get a job to help supplement our income and the 73 Lincoln definitely has to go and soon. Where has the time gone to? I have 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: OLD FELLA RALLY OCTOBER 10-17, 2016

The Old Fella Rally will be here before you know it. Start planning now for the event and daily activities. There is much to see and do in the area. With Sue retiring I don't know at this point if we will be able to continue to travel, so this might be the last Old Fella Rally for us. Let's make this one a great one.

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

Good morning everyone. It is time to think about the Old Fella Rally in Sevierville this October. Raffle prizes anyone? We will need some items for the raffle. We will have the BBQ lunch Saturday morning along with the raffle. So bring what you can and we will have the drawing to raise money for the Old Fella Burke County Animal Rescue. Yesterday was a peaceful day with sine rain showers late in the evening. I took the 73 Lincoln to a drive in car show at the Dairy Queen in Mauldin yesterday afternoon. It was fun and interesting. The girls are doing fine. Izzie is also doing well, just being a cat, you know the routine. Sue is trying to get us ready for her retirement. Going to be a lot of changes made, some not so good. We'll talk about that later. 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. It is going to be another hot one today. I was outside yesterday cleaning the two Lincolns. There is a drive through car show today in Mauldin that I plan to take the 73 Lincoln to see if I can get any interest in it. The girls are fine as is Izzie the cat. I hope all is well with everyone and you have a great day planned. Walter it sounds like you and Garland are having fun. I need to get moving so I can get to church a little early. I am teaching a class that I am not familiar with so I need to get there to look the class over before time to start teaching. I will close now wishing everyone blessed day. Be sure to give the fur babies a hug for me and be sure to tell someone you love them.
