Stopping the presses

or posts, be that as it may.
I have a few posts brewing but I’ve shoved them firmly on to the back burner to cope with some rough stuff at home. Our big yellow dog went downhill quickly and we euthanized her so we are all hurting. Hard on the heels of that tragedy I was diagnosed with the beginnings of pneumonia and the medicine has me addled. It’s slowed the progression down some, but I think it has one last hurrah before it succumbs.

On a positive note, Haggle-tooth went to the vet yesterday and he’s all better. While we were there we ran into a lady who had with her a dog from the same breeder we acquired Hagamemnon from and he was magnificent, sweet, and still going strong at the advanced age of 14.


  1. Please take care of yourself and take care of real life. We'll be here when you get back. Hope you feel better.

  2. So sorry to hear about your dog. We had to have our beloved Domino put down a couple of years ago. My wife had raised both her and her mother from pups, and having put the mother down two years before, she was devastated.
    Still, there comes a time when it's the right thing to do. It's a Bad Thing to let them suffer just so you can hang on to them a while longer.
    My deepest sympathy to you and yours.

  3. oof. rest up, heal up - both emotionally and physically. we'll be here when you're ready to start up again.

  4. So sorry to hear about your dog. Hope you're feeling better!!
