What a bummer Mary Jo ! Sounds like it will be a great trip when you get to take it .

Hoss was hunting for lizards this weekend and poked his eye.
So he has an ulcer on his cornea left eye!
Fortunately I already had an appointment saturday for his yearly shots......the incident happened about 20 minutes before I went to our vet.
So Hoss was squinting real bad but we caught this early...he was given a steroid shot that lastes two weeks ( ver said Hoss was very uncomfortable and shot was the way to go versus anti inflamatory via pill form.
BUT during this appointment vet noticed a lymp node on Hoss's left rear hind leg was enlarged.... so she also did a fine needle aspiration to see whats going on inside that node. Will not get results till later this week.
His has shown no signs of discomfort in that leg ...so I am praying everything turns out just fine...........but you can tell I am concerned.

I know dogs not cats

Did you go to shows with same folks? Or were the roommates random?

Other part of getting up early for me - I get to work early and if nothing goes wrong I come home early or on time. Some at work show up a little later and leave later. I prefer getting home earlier.
Huh, missed this somehow...you can't really get a timeline from my "stories of the past"--some of the roommate stories are from a point when I was dogless.

And the stories about my pale green in the morning roommates at dog shows were friends with dogs related (usually) to mine. So the early morning at dog show roommates were (over time) pretty much the same people but the household roommates were just random.

A lot of the places I worked (in Marine hardware, at least) I was either the assistant manager or manager and generally was the opener (because I was reliable about getting up and getting to the store and opening it on time--and that was a direct result of being a full blown "lark." Unfortunately it didn't often result in being able to leave a little early. At best it let me arrange for what amounted to a split shift so that I took two or three hours for lunch because I had a puppy at home who then got let out, fed, played with and I went back to work. And closed the store too--wasn't so bad when we were open 8:00am to 6:00pm but around Christmas when those hours changed to 8:00am to 9:00pm it was pure hell--I was pale green by the time I got out and went home--it was hours past my bedtime.

Yes, the r on roja is definitely rolled but I don't have a problem with that--it relates to how I call my cats--"prrrrrrt, prrrrrrt, prrrrrt!" Those central r's are rolled.

I didn't take spanish anywhere a long the line but somewhere in the very early grades there was a teacher who had us learn to count (at least to 10) in spanish, german, french and english. Somehow it was only the spanish that stuck with me (well, and the english). But much later in life I worked for a canvas shop (mostly marine specialty canvas) and the former Mexican, now US citizen, foreman taught me fractions (and according to friends who had taken Spanish in either high school or college--fractions are almost never taught in classes) I had a hard time with them and Rosario and his wife laughed a lot about that.

I knew all of the coffee songs except the very first one by Williams.

Gordon Lightfoot is one of my favorites--found him in the very early years. Had a friend who had a big record distribution company and used to bring stacks of records (samples sent by recording companies and reps) and gave them to us. Lightfoot was just starting to be played on the air and we got a copy of his first album. He played the Troubadour in Hollywood frequently and when he was there we went.

Thanks for the memories.

Personally it isn't even so much the changing time of getting used to the change or even the first week (although the cats are terrible about changing time) but it's the basic fact that as a "lark" I want that extra daylight at the beginning of the day--having extra daylight at the end of the day is very wasted on me--it means that the later in the year it gets and the more daylight at the end of the day it is likely that I'll be going to bed or passing out on the couch when it's 8:00pm.

It also means that on Sundays when I go to the clinic to deal with cats etc that because my night vision sucks, I no longer drive in the dark--and have to wait until it's light to go in.

Just a small rant about DST--which I know you all know that I hate!

The lizards are larger and fairly aggressive this spring. They are all fighting each other and most are missing tails. Must be something in the air

Speedy recovery for Hoss so he can get back in the fight.

We have several cases of THE VIRUS in Colorado, and now one has been announced in Colorado Springs as well. All international travel, I think. My daughter said an announcement went out at UCCS (University of Colorado, Colorado Springs) yesterday. She can do most of her classes online (and usually does, actually, but now she'll have an excuse for not going in) but not so much physics lab.

I am a recluse however, so I feel OK about it. More worried about supply chain type stuff and panic/hoarding of necessaries than anything. Hmmmm...cat litter. Better check my supply.

I still feel like it's overblown--definitely concerning, dangerous for elderly and preexisting condition people, but......anyway, I guess we'll all find out. Not much we can do except follow good hygiene and wait, I guess. I'm thinking anywhere within reach of an international airport with direct flights overseas (Denver International) will have more cases.

And just for the heck of it I'm re-reading The Stand (Stephen King). To remind myself how much worse it could be.
LOL--I am certainly old enough to qualify for the warning about the elderly and those with preexisting conditions--but that's been true for every round of foreign imported viruses all my life (fortunately I hadn't been born when the Spanish influenza was around and killed hundreds and thousands of people)

And the run on stuff everywhere just has me shaking my head. I shop at Costco and buy stuff like toilet paper there--and one bale of that lasts me for about six months--so, of course when people started emptying the shelves everywhere of toilet paper, bleach, hand sanitizers etc--I was down to a couple of rolls of tp and had it on my Costco list. And duely picked up a bale when I was there but when I got home I discovered I had inadvertently picked up a pack of paper towels which I don't normally buy at Costco)--but but by the time I discovered this it was too late--so now I have a small supply of horrible tp from the grocery store. Come on Costco--get another load of paper products in.

I'm basically another recluse--go shopping (most of the time) early to beat the crowds. There's no one at work when I'm there and only cats and a loaner puppy at home.

How funny that you are re-reading 'The Stand", Mel. I thought about it when the first stuff was being talked about from the Washington State assisted living operation with multiple deaths--dug it out and thought about re-reading it. But the first time I read it--I remembered--the first time I read it, I was close to the end and all of my roommates (many--the house had six bedrooms) were gone, the house was empty--the book had given me the creeps (hard to do--I couldn't deal with visual creepy stuff than, still can't now) and Steven King and "The Stand" proved that it could be done. It was still sunny on the patio and back yard--I moved with a sleeping bag (it was February and chilly, even for LA) and a cat and the book--the first roommates home (who found me sleeping) out there asked what that hell I was doing outside.

I'm not sure I want to repeat that--not, at least until it gets warmer.

Looks like he enjoyed himself! The last photo seems he is content.

Is that your land or took a drive?
Hello, Mr B--I like the pictures Ken.

Who did his ear crop? (It looks familiar--wondered if it was an Anne Plath crop)

And what does he weigh now?

They were showing pictures of Costco's in Washington and Oregon on the news last night as well as pictures from some of the big grocery stores. Empty shelves where there used to be bleach, toilet paper, hand sanatizer, and a recipe for making your own hand sanatizer (I wondered a couple of days ago when someone would think of that). Ummm-what else--hand soap and some laundry detergent.

Yeah, Mel--it's true I don't know how to spell sanatizer--but I am now beyond caring.

Geez Mary Jo--I know how long you've been planning that vacation--unfortunately I think all this stuff is going to get worse before it gets significantly better. The business with the airfare is the pits.

Just figured you could slide that one by because it's in Spanish, eh? Naughty boy. But at least your spelling is better in Spanish than in English.

I can do that too. At least up to ten (a little further in Spanish and English) But there is no way I could write it down (unless I use roman numerals, of course. Sometimes globalism is a good thing.)

Capri (I think it was her) did that--I looked at her eye one day and it had no pupil! The strangest looking thing I've ever seen. I guess the eye does that to protect itself. Anyway, the vet stitched her eye shut to help it stay protected and we squeezed ointment in daily (at least that often, I can't remember) and some kind of something to keep it dilated?? And it was all back to normal shortly.

Best of luck on the swollen gland; it's always something, isn't it?

I had to replace (or rebuild) the pump on our portable dishwasher (all by me myself and I)--not too bad a job, really. But I don't remember what the new pump parts cost.

Turned out that he was determined not to be late so after being out drinking and whatnot he came to the store and let himself in (too many keys for that place) and was just taking a nap until morning arrived.
Can't argue with his work ethic, though.

I still hate it. It takes me a week (or more) to adjust my internal clock. I wasn't tired and stayed up too late last night, so I not only slept to the alarm, I hit the snooze button twice. My nose was saved, because Tigger stayed outside last night. He was probably right outside the bedroom window, though, hearing the alarm, going "MOM, GET UP! LET ME IN!!"

And speaking of cats, I got all my "little duties" done this morning and finally got sat down with my nice full cup of hot coffee (black, of course, I'm a Badass Farm Girl), and was trying to focus on the TV and wake up all the way, when Buddy (he's the gray fluffy one with the bad eyes) reached up and grabbed my cup off the coffee table and pulled it over on himself. Yes, he has coffee on him. But most of it went on the carpet, so I had to do some fast carpet cleaning when I was barely awake. I'll probably have to do it again, later, when I'm more awake and daylight shows me all the spots I missed. Cats. You would think he would have learned to NOT grab Mom's coffee cup, right? After having a hot coffee bath? No. After I got the mess cleaned up, I went and refilled my cup and the little snot went for it again. This time I was ready and I hit him with the squirt bottle first. Now I'm at the kitchen table (he's too short to reach this high, LOL!) and he's over in the living room, trying to lick all the coffee and water out of his hair.

There are days when I think it would be easier to have three rowdy puppies in the house, rather than these cats.
I don't know about that Lannie--the cats are bad enough--mine do stuff that makes me ask them "Don't you remember the last time you did that?" (Like the time that Clark (who likes to climb in the bathtub right after I get out of the shower and drink the warm water from around the drain) jumped in the bathtub just as I was getting IN not OUT--boy, was he unpleasantly surprised--but he evidently forgets and tries two or three times a year.

Puppies on the other hand never forget some stuff and that means that the puppy who liked to run his nose along the counter when he was barely tall enough to reach the counter is doing the same thing as a seven year old dog (except he's now a lot taller and occasionally manages to reach and take something you'd planned to use for lunch or dinner.)

We actually have a portable dishwasher that came with the house, but the pump went flooey on us years ago, and pumped all the wash water out onto the floor. I guess we could get it fixed, but we didn't have the money for a long time, and in the meantime we got a different kitchen faucet (with a pull-out) so it wouldn't hook up, anyway. I use it as a drying rack for all my milk jars now. My dream is to have a huge kitchen, with two ovens and two dishwashers. Two sinks would be pretty handy, too. That would be heaven.
Yeah, I'd love a really big kitchen but since I spent quite a lot of time sailing, doing fairly long trips and racing and was almost always the designated cook I can deal with small kitches and most boat galleys (kitchens to you landlubbers) are pretty well designed for practical use I'm OK with that.

But I mostly don't use dishwashers--I used to when I was married and had several step kids and when I lived in a big house with a ton of roommates but it's just me and the dogs and we don't accumulate enough stuff to make it realistic to even get a load for a dishwasher. So I wash dishes in the sink and use the adjacent dishwasher as a rack to dry them in--run a load every couple of weeks just to keep the various seals and gaskets damp and keep the inside of the dishwasher clean.

OMG, I just looked out the window and there's the most BEAUTIFUL full moon out there, just next to one of the big pines, and a few little wispy clouds floating in front of the moon. It would make a gorgeous picture, if I had the camera to take it. I wish TN was here, he could do it! The clouds are all lit up, the tree is faintly silhouetted against them, and it looks like a painting...
Lannie,

I was up at around 1:30 am and looked out the window to see if, as promised, it had cleared up. It had and I got to see that stunning moon too.

Fortunately I already had an appointment saturday for his yearly shots......the incident happened about 20 minutes before I went to our vet.
So Hoss was squinting real bad but we caught this early...he was given a steroid shot that lastes two weeks ( ver said Hoss was very uncomfortable and shot was the way to go versus anti inflamatory via pill form.
BUT during this appointment vet noticed a lymp node on Hoss's left rear hind leg was enlarged.... so she also did a fine needle aspiration to see whats going on inside that node. Will not get results till later this week.
His has shown no signs of discomfort in that leg ...so I am praying everything turns out just fine...........but you can tell I am concerned.
Ugg.....
Boy, LAdi--Hoss was lucky you spotted that early. Corneal problems of any sort are really painful. And worse than that if they don't get treated properly and early can sometimes cause permanent damage to the cornea.

Hopefully that lump--what ever it turns out to be will turn out to be a non-event--many times they are and you and vet never are able to figure out exactly why the the gland was enlarged.

Good thoughts for your boy and let us know how this all goes...

Corona virus--I'm not that worried about the actual disease. I mean, yup, it's bad--infectious and spreading pretty fast. But overblown, in my opinion. I mean, it's not going to turn into the Black Death or anything. Probably not as bad as the Spanish flu epidemic, which killed something like 50,000,000 people worldwide (about 600,000 in the US). Epidemics in an academic sense have always fascinated me **see below.

This Corona virus panic is much worse than the disease, though, IMO. There is a lot of damage being done there that may take a long time to get back up to "normal"--whatever that is. The problems we are going to run into with supply chain disruption and its affect on commerce, especially in certain sectors of the economy, are significant. But it might bring the US back (Canada? Who knows. Sorry B67) into a more self-reliant position--a silver lining in a dark cloud??

People (the bookish sort) used to talk about energy reliance, resource availability and manufacturing capabilities--how could we defend ourselves militarily if we need to? The story is that Japan went to war for those very reasons--to make up for lack of resources--and that they spread into Indonesia, etc to get to the oil fields. And we drove them to it, in their eyes, by embargoing oil prior to the war. (of course, that is what lost them the war too...they couldn't keep up with our much larger resources and manufacturing capabilities)

But they (those bookish folks I referred to earlier) seem perfectly OK with globalism; heck, they're full of praise about it. And yet, it can cause the same sorts of problems Japan faced, in stressful times.

Anyway..........enough history. I've laid in supplies and am as ready as I can be. But it may be a tough ride--people in large panicking groups are tricky to be around.



**I've always been sorta interested the Spanish flu epidemic. In its aftermath came sleepy sickness (encephalitis lethargica). "A bizarre disease known as the sleepy sickness, or lethargic encephalitis, devastated millions of people across the world and left doctors puzzled for decades afterward. According to some sources, around 1 million of those affected by the disturbing illness died, while many others were transformed into living statues and spent the rest of their lives trapped inside their bodies and locked in institutions, speechless and motionless." Vintage News
https://www.thevintagenews.com/2018/...eepy-sickness/

They don't know if it was actually related to the flu; it is a mystery. But my father's mother came down with it. She never recovered and was bedridden, though sometimes conscious, for 25 years. I can't even begin to imagine what that was like for my grandfather to deal with--caring for her daily and also their three small children. And yet, just like they were about the depression and WWII, they never really talked about it. There was no whining about the bad hand they were dealt. Today's folks might could learn something.

Kenny--I hope the gardener was a bueno amigo that you were calling pendejo and I hope Ma doesn't know any of those same "others".

But I vote your reply for best laugh of the day.

MeadowCat,

S-OK Kenny, mostly just me wanting to know because it's a nice show crop and I still kind of collect the names of vets whose crops I see--there are so few really good croppers of Dobes who can really do a good show crop on a puppy that ends up being perfect on the adult dog.

Just another one of me being nosy. Looking down on him looking into the water he was looking somewhat heavier than I thought he was usually.

Just about the time I sent that post I thought about the fact that the northern and midwest dogs (and even the rainy PNW guys) often put on winter weight which evaporates with spring.

Is he really 30 inches? but none of my 28-1/2" dogs (all three of them) looked like they were that tall. Yeah, he looks well muscled--not soft the way many dogs carrying too much weight are really carrying too much fat.

We showed Toad at 90 pounds (partly to make up for the fact that he was young and looked immature--because he was...) and as soon as he finished with his championship I kept him at 85 pounds which was pretty much ideal for doing agility.

Mr B probably looks just fine at 95 pounds--the thing that made me ask was that at the moment (wearing his winter weight) he doesn't have a waistline.

I think he's got a little more bone than Toad but they'd look good as a matched pair. We used to put Toad in Obedience sometimes with a fairly big black bitch to do pairs--he always embarrassed her because he wanted to go say hi to the people at ringside--most of the time when they were in the ring she looked a lot like she was about to bite him,

But they looked good as a pair--those colors--dark fawn and black were noticeable.

It's OK Mr B--I was just asking--you're a beautiful boy even at your winter weight.

Thanks Aung Bug - I'm working from home today - But will take time to tell you about his weight deal - I always have time for you

It really did start after we got him fixed - he slowly put on some weight - The one day I was talking to Cindy ( his breeder ) and she recommended a dog food called Open Farm - so I put him on that - he blew up ! I cut him to the lowest amount and did no good . One day - we stopped by the Vets office and had a nice talk with the 2 vets that see him , told them what I was feeding + the amount - they couldn't believe it , So we put him on Science Diet R/D about 4 months or so ago - And have him around 100 - goal is 95 for now . Then add in the lose of Ali - his bestest friend in the world , he just shut down - no kidding , like your flipped a switch , he would just lay on the floor and stare at her grave for hours on end , no gettie up at all , we tried everything - road trips , everything to fire him up again , Just in the last month he appears to be turning the corner and going to more like himself .

He is the 1st dog we every had a weight deal with - we both feel bad for letting it happen in the first place - yet we were trying to stop it .

We have been out 4 times today to play some ball and getting ready to go one more time before the rains come back in .

I gave him a good head rub for yeah

BTW - I'm going to call Cindy today or tomorrow and I will ask her who did the crop - I can say - I 99.9 % sure you have heard of her - I seen her name mentioned on here before - and know she's in Ohio .
