Youngest daughter text the family today. Damien, the dog she recused from the street on a bitter winter day about 10 years ago (literialy, previous owners wife let him go because she didn't want him, the temp was in single digits) has been diagnosed with cancer of the lymph nodes today. Vet figures he's got about a week.

He is a friendly and gentle guy. Only dog ever in my truck, we were dog sitting, I opened the door to load the truck for a job, he wanted to go with.

I hope Christy can find solace in knowing she provided him a loving home.

Sorry to hear about your pup Tom.

Always a poignant time. The good memories will help soothe the pain of losing her cherished and loyal pet, eventually.


PS I hope someone b!tch slapped the ahole who dumped the poor dog out in the bitter cold and God bless your daughter for taking him in.

Christy took him to the vet she uses for her cat, happened to be Damiens vet. Vet called the house, next call was to the authorities.

I know this is going to crush her for awhile. Whenever I talk to her I ask how "the kids" (cat and Damns).

Hopefully my brother has something she’ll be happy with at his rescue.

Hating this stuff when I have 2 egress digs tomorrow to do so they can be cut Tuesday. Only plus is snow insulates ground from freezing for awhile.

Its coming .:laughing:
It always does, doesn't it.

I'm hoping global warming will soon be taking care of that. They promised me snow free winters! :laughing:

Jeez, I was out stacking hay, getting up a nice mild sweat and talking to my buddy today.

65 degrees, puffy clouds and sun coming out this afternoon. Now Im sitting on the couch with the doors open.

Winter can stay away for a while more.

Kids like it. Until you tell them to shovel it.

They aren't going to like it this time around. No snow days anymore. Just flip on the computer and have an in house school day.

We were just talking about our dog's passing with a neighbor today when talking to them about their dogs accident that required a cast (that he eventually chewed off)... ours happened a couple of years ago but we still miss her... it sucks when there's something medical that you can't do anything about... we tried surgeries, etc. before having to make the call... we were all with her though when it happened though...

Out of all the dogs we looked at in the shelter she chose us and made that totally clear that she was coming home with us... :laughing:

Sorry to hear the sad news... At least we have the memories, and your daughter not only had the years she had to make plenty of them but made those years possible in the first place... gotta' be some peace in that...

I hate cement siding.

Look at it crooked and it cracks. Finishing it off tomorrow, but I'm down to my last mistake or I have to do the walk of shame to the lumber yard to buy more.
