4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction.

Most places have vet discounts if you ask. Autozone, ace hardware, lowes, home depot, almost every hotel.

Stranded on 160 in la veta pass right now. Need to be in denver and parked by 230 and im worried. 18 wheeler went off a mountain. I like how it says use detour but there are only 3 ways out of the valley 1 is the wrong direction, one is closed for construction and then the accident.

Just saw this never sent.... i HATE denver

It's gonna get hot again today!  We've been hitting 105 Mon-Wed and at 10:30 today we're already at 102 so it's gonna get blazing by 3:00 which is our normal hot spot for the day.  Wunderground is saying 109 and they're normally low by a few degrees but I'm not so sure today.

Just went out to fill the doggie pool, I've had birds looking for water (also had cats looking for birds - not sure how this is gonna work out)

It'd take another $1600 worth of batteries to be able to run an A/C or swamp cooler and I'm not sure I can afford that or that an A/C would work (I really dislike swamp coolers for the humidity they put into the air)

Rambling - I'll go take a nap here shortly - to be correct, it's called a siesta ...

ETA after siesta: I think about an A/C every time it gets warm but the few times I'd use it are really few and far between. I like having my windows and doors open - but when it's this hot, I really, really have to reconsider. Then next week we'll be back to our normal, comfortable 90's ...

<Gross out alert>  One of Sasha's 'little' idiosynchocies is that she'll eat any handkerchief she can get her teeth into.  I haven't been overly concerned about a blockage since they're all either linen or cotton but ... Wednesday I saw her chewing on something in her crate - a handkerchief, of course - so we played "trade" (a dog biscuit for a piece of a handkerchief.)  After she's chewed on one for a while, it's hard to say how much is really left but I thought I had a goodly piece of this one, until she barfed up a good sized chunk yesterday morning.  So today we go out for a walk and she takes a dump and my thoughts were "that looks really odd ..."  of course it was more of said handkerchief.  If wasn't fairly certain she'd only gotten one, I'd swear there were at least two in total.



Ah, cooler today, we just broke 100 - that's a nice reprieve from 107+  I don't mind the 90's, in fact I'll leave windows and doors open to catch the breeze but when it get much over 100 all the breeze is is a blast of hot air - like opening an oven door!



The Galliprant seems to be helping a lot with the pain with few, if any, side effects.  Taking her out for any kind of walk is getting to be difficult 'cause she'll trip over 'most anything (the leash, her feet, a cat) and it's taking her longer to get her back legs under her again.  We went out last night and she missed her footing (I'm thinking she doesn't see as well as she did) and went down.  It was probably only 30-45 seconds before she got back up but it's getting to be longer.  At least she can support herself when she takes a dump, she display pain when I try to hold her or lift her so I'm not sure she'd let me support her.....

If she weren't such a PITA, I'd probably put her down now.  But she'll come over to tell me it's supper time and then stand there and look at me till I get it (and it's that time and yes, she's waiting!)  She noses me 'most every morning; I don't know if that's "Daddy it's time for breakfast!" or maybe she's just checking on me ... who knows

If she isn't in pain (much) when doing basic duties and is only weak then I would just keep on keeping on. They can bumble around a while. Before I got kenzi's diabetes lined out she was super weak in the rear and would hesitate with stairs and getting on the bed or in truck. It was frustrating for her and sad for me but overall she wasn't a detriment to herself or in pain, just weak and wobbly. Kenzi has hip pains and doesn't like her hips messed with. I think she would benefit from a massage but she indicates discomfort so I don't push her. Can't decide if a hip massage hurts so good or just hurts her.

Sasha and pain, there are times it's obvious she's hurting - sometimes at bedtime she tries to curl to lay down and whines (this is a different whine than "Daddy, I want ...")

I've run onto this scenario a couple of times - she'll trip over a bowl (food bowl / water bowl) and end up with a front elbow in the bowl and can't get it out.  She can't put enough pressure on the out-of-bowl leg without ending up putting pressure on the other leg so she ends up whining and I can imagine, easily, that that hurts.  I try to remember to take her food bowl out of her crate ... but sometimes I forget ... what doesn't help is that when I move her leg to get it and the bowl apart it hurts, pressure on body parts that shouldn't be under pressure.

Well, putting water in the pool didn't work right, it held water for two nights and then drained itself overnight the third night. I don't see a hole to repair but the water had to go somewhere (and there's enough water on the ground around it that I know I didn't get visited by a bunch of thirsty gremlins. One of the seams on the side panels has started to split at the top so it was a good effort but little used. Probably not worth replacing for the dogs ...
