Stunningly handsome!  That face…that coloring….that mischievous twinkle In his eye……great picture of a very lucky dog!

A thought, if Jerry thinks it’s appropriate.   Maybe you could do a tutorial thread  with pictures/video on  how to do  the  Hemlach (sp) on dogs.  For legal purposes,  it may not be  appropriate and, if  done at all, it may need to be “produced” by a Veterinarian.

Geeze Jackie, any one of those things would be worthy of a rant!

On the good side you recognized the problem with Bo right away, remained calm (or calm enough) and saved him.  Now, you probably don’t need to have such a challenge to your parenting skills, but I hope you can take some pride and comfort in that!

The surgery thing with Mitchell is a tough one, living with such a profound regret is very hard.  It’s easy to say: ‘let it go’, ‘you didn’t do anything wrong’ or ‘things happen for a reason’.  But the reality is that crappy things happen in our lives and sometimes there are no satisfactory answers. You do the best you can to live with it, learn what you can and don’t let it define you. 

The dentist? well, nuff said!

I hope the rest of your week has been quite mundane!

Thank goodness, yes.. finally quieted down.  This really has been one heck of a roller-coaster ride… and I am really not a roller-coaster fan, lol. 

I am looking forward to helping my husband work on mundane house projects, watching mundane tv shows, and eating mundane food… yep, that sounds like a gift of a weekend.

Sally, I found some really cool pics that describe my manhandling of Bo really well. That might be a nice project to work on, with Rene’s ok of course!

Hugs,

Thanks guys, I am starting to feel like a person again sp_hearticon2

Hugs,

Jackie, David, Bo, Andy, Oscar, Angel Mitchell, and the coolest feral tripawd kitty Huckleberry

I totally agree that would be a great idea Sally! Jackie if and when you are up to it, send me the copy and I will make it into a guest blog post. I hope I never need to use it but based on Wyatt Ray ‘s track record of ingesting weird things, it would be good to know about just in case. 

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™
