|Husky of the Month|
Congrats Nikita, Archer, and Cheyanne,
our November HOTM Winners!
Thanks to all for this month's entries!
|1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.|
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
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. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

I'm not laughing at you @lostmaniac
but the stuff I got into when I was a kid and my only problems were (and sometimes are) 'hay fever' (pollen allergy)
Let's see, we'd get thirsty and drink from the cow or horse trough, whichever was closest; grandpa gave us fresh milk - like straight from the cow and warm milk; we'd pull carrots from the garden and wipe the dirt off them and eat them along with raw corn, radishes, peas, beans and whatever else was reasonably ripe that we could get away with. (( er, raw corn is a great laxative - lesson learned! )) and none of us kids (my cousins and I) ever got sick beyond the occasional cold that'd make the rounds at school. We'd go wandering in the woods eating blue berries and blackberries right off the bush; chew on a spearmint leaf ...
If I were growing up today with today's parents, they'd be having conniptions - but shoot for a farm boy in the middle part of the last century, that was just a normal way of life. and for some reason as a group, we're still pretty healthy.

Lach went nearly 6 months over the winter with no seizures. We were hopeful that somehow we'd got past them, but this Spring they started again only worse. One day he had 3, morning, noon, and night. Weeks later the clusters started. The first 2 times we got him out of it with one dose of the rectal valium. The other day I was gone and he started clustering. I had recently returned from the beach with him and hadn't unpacked the valium so my wife couldn't find it. Thanks to a miracle of timing, I was able to take her call and direct her to it. She gave the first dose around #3
and a second dose when he went into #5
. He stopped after a sixth and she and my son rushed him to the ER where he arrived with a temp of 106. Had she not been able to reach me, she and my son would've likely watched him die. We've got him on Phenobarb now and he seems to be recovering slowly. He acts drunk and the Ataxia makes his hind end wobbly. I realize now I took some big risks trying to avoid the Phenobarb. If I had to do it again I would've started the Phenobarb after the very first cluster. We've never been able to pin down any triggers. [img]
