I have to drop Red Boy off for Blood work. Check for heart worms and looking for anything unusual. He has gained weight lately which has me concerned.
I am also going to have a front leg x-ray done. He has been limping off and on for about 4 weeks. I rubbed and manipulated his leg in every way possible and a few that are not possible to try and get a reaction from him...nothing! I worked him out this weekend and got him limping again and may have discovered his issue. It seems like it is one of his toes high up , he reacted to. No swelling anywhere , just a limp He has always been a solid dog and trying not to be bothered but i am!

Why are you so mean to me?

Red boy, with life jacket, in a boat.

You must not realize that I have puppy fever, like really bad.

Well, I do!



My brother's step grand puppy, Damen, got me all fired up!

I didn't even know they provided the footprint services until Axel. It is a nice thing for a vet to do. Going the extra mile, in my opinion.

When my cousin had Twister put down they gave her a hoof print.

Get ready for a good Mrs TN cry when you show her.

I can not believe you got his ashes and footprint back that fast!

Wow!

I had to wait a week for Axel to come back.

Will be a nice surprise for MrsTN, to cherish a Life of fun doggy times.

Sometimes those rough shocks, as painful as they are, really help the grieving process. That's not much consolation at the present, I know....

melbrod Judging from our weather, your heat isn't going to go away soon, Ken. We're supposed to be low 90's and bright sun at least through Monday, and only dropping to 60 or so at night, which isn't quite enough to cool us down for the following day (no air-conditioning here).

We've had a few thunderstorms sweep through the last couple of days (which are purely hit and miss), but even those are going to go away, apparently.

....in other words, no end in sight.

dobebug I'm awfully sorry to hear about Coco and your loss. It's particularly hard, I think, when a dog has been with you so long--17 years--that's a very long time.

Sleep softly Coco...

They are BOATS ! huge ! have a 355 CI. engine in them - run them on Half miles and Mile tracks for the most part and they hold75 gallon of methanol ! I got to load one , one time - all I had to do was steer it in to the trailer - Driver was not there and I was the only one that could fit in his seat - LOL Yes -I was Slim - LOL These are also very fun to watch
Thanks, Kenny, for the short course on racers--I suspected that the thing I was calling a box kite (didn't know what else to call it) on top had something to do with both stability and speed.

Too bad I didn't find out about them when I was a lot younger--they are kind of my cup of tea--a lot of heart stopping stuff happening fast. I only got interested in the NASCAR racing when one of the woman who had a dog bred by the breeder I was (sort of) working for at shows--she was a long time NASCAR addict--sucked me into watching races with her. Found myself holding my breath watching some car trying to stay on the track while sliding backwards into the grass...

So now you are really on count down for your new lil' girl--have you finally decided on a call name? And has Cindy decided on a registered name?

Have you started waking up at night wondering what you've forgotten to do, to get or to ask about?

VBG--been there, done thant--good luck.

Mmmm--well the eggs I used to get when I lived down the street from a chicken farm (factory?, ranch?) were only three or four days old (mostly what they sold to people like me were "check" eggs--fertile and they had to be a few days old before they could tell the egg had been fertilized (as I understand it) but I don't grow chickens or eggs--this is left over from my very young childhood when I was the designated egg gatherer for my grandmother.

And the ones I've gotten lately have been very fresh--a day or two only.

But I can tell you that eggs will keep a whole lot longer than dated cartons in stores would indicate. When I was going on deliveries (of boats) we'd buy cartons of eggs with the best buy dates the furthest out --which were mostly around two or three weeks but even 6 weeks after we got those eggs they were still fine--but we'd run out and I'd have to go egg shopping (with my bad to non-existent Spanish--I did learn that in Mexico eggs are sold by weight not by the number of eggs. It was on par with learning that while you could find and buy honey you had to bring your own container).

And it has started to rain so I guess that means I'll postpone mowing the back lawn until it dries out. Supposed to do that starting tomorrow and continues to the end of the week I think.

That's the weather and egg report for today.

Mocha is acting way different this morning. She's being extra velcro (didn't think that was possible) and she's walking around, looking at each of the 3 dog beds we have. She definitely knows something is off.

Beaumont67 So sad to here this TN - Coco was surrounded by tons of Love, entire life...and knew it.
- but its still really hard, to accept ...never easy
- condolences to You & Mrs. & Mocha
07-07-2020 05:52 AM
LadyDi Really sorry TN for your loss.
Love that first PIC with pups paw on the hamburger toy. Precious.
Just know that you can PM PICís to me if you want and I would make a tribute movie for you to have on hand later ...when you and Mrs. are ready.
Anyway such a sad day but I am really glad all of you got to be there including Mocha.
Great dog parents for sure.

The vet said given his age and condition, there wasn't much to be done so it was time. My wife is taking it really hard because that was her boy. Coco had a good life but in the end, time and age were catching up to him. He was deaf, had a heart murmur, arthritis in his hips and legs so that we had to carry him up and down stairs, and he had mild canine cognitive disorder.
I know that our other Shih-Tzu, Teddy, who we had put to sleep back in 2013 due to cancer, was waiting at the bridge for Coco, and now they're both running and playing together, free of pain.
RIP, Coco. 2003-2020
Some older pics of Coco


Today, at the vet - my wife giving Coco one last treat

Saying goodbye

What a horrible day for you all.

Condolences.

I hate making the decisions like these.

It's depressing when we lose icons.
