Well, I have to say, out of all the bad days I have had this summer, today has to be RIGHT up there at number one. I will take you from 1:30 am when the dogs started barking..........

Ok, let the dogs out, back in, and crashed on the couch. One dog wold not settle down, but finly did, I slept till about 4.

4am the dogs start barking agean. let them out, and figure Heck I am up, so stay up.

At 4:15 my doughter wakes up, SCREAMING!!!!. OK, well go up, grab her out of her crib, and put her in bed with my wife.

5:05 I hear coughing, and crying. Wife screems for me to come up. Baby HEAVED EVERYWERE!!!!!

Well, clean up the bed, and the room, and figure I better shower becouse I have to go to work, wife is stuck home, shed NOT happy, and not feeling great eather.


Well She got sick off and on all morning, then finly napped, still a little edgy, but shes doing better.

One dog had a vet apt. Has not been right, and we figured there was some problems. Wife takes him, becouse I have people out at work, and I am in charge.

Well worse then we figured. Dog had a lot of problems. Cancer, heart problems, and something REAL wrong with his stumic. At 12yo, and so much wrong we just could not bear to see him suffer any more, and we did the right thing. We had to put him down.:cry:

Later at work, I try to sign on to check my emails. Gues what? My password does not work. Seems someone had highjacked my email:eek: :mad: Well after a lot of fussing, and fighting I got it all streightend out.

Get home...... my computer will not boot. Like COMEON!!!!! what else can I take????

Well 9:30 now, and figure I might as well turn in. The dog's sleeping[had 3 for 12 years, strange just being one] but I figure he will be up soon woundering where his brouther is. Baby's sleeping with the wife, and kinda hopping they left me room. Looks like I will be up a LOT tonightfrown frown frown


Just tell me tomarrow HAS to be better!!!!!!!!!!!

WOW Paul, real sorry to hear about the dog. You know with 6 of my own I dread the day when age and health becomes an issue. We're starting to see the oldest female (10 yrs), show her age. Getting a little slower, not wanting to climb high stairs, etc.

Things can always be worse but look on the brite side. After a day like that odds are good tomorrow will be better. The baby will get well, the dog is no longer suffering. What can I say about work and computers. They fall into the category of something else to irritate us when we least need it. :)

Paul…

Sorry to hear the day went the way it did, especially you having to
put the dog down. Even though it hurts, you know you did the
right thing. We had two German Shepherd’s for 10 years and then
put the male down in Dec 02. The female just seemed to loose all
interest in life after that and died in April 03. After 10 years with
them, it’s almost like loosing a family member. We got a Shepherd
puppy in May 03 and things got brighter.

Well seems to me, you need to go out and buy yourself another tractor.
I’ll bet you feel a lot better after that. :D

Sorry to hear about your bad day. A bad day does have a purpose, to let us appreciate the good days. I hope you have many more good days than bad.

Keep the faith man! Never, Never ever say it can't get worse!!!

That is the optomist in me, sorry the kiddo is still not feeling well. We went through that when he was teething, not fun!

Last week my wife and sister in law took our son and nephew to the park and my son wanted to spin on the tire swing. He kept saying faster so my wife spun him faster. Now move the story to Burger King, they are at the counter ordering and yes you guessed it he blows chow right on the counter. The cashier hands my wife a couple of cups to catch the mess and off they go to the restroom, he can't even walk he is spewing so bad!!!

Woops, don't spin the kid!!!! My wife was so embarassed, the gal behind the counter said no problem, I guess it must have happened before!

:sick:

Now Now Ingersoll, We love the children and they are a blessing for all of us. Sometimes the blessing is a annoyance (ralphed in the car). But to me the delay maybe god wants to pause you for a second because something dreadful might happen if you hurry. Years ago when my son was 4 he heaved just as I was taking him to daycare when I decided that he was more important then getting him to the daycare. I made a appointment for the dr later in the day and took a sick day. Turns out he just over ate his breakfast. Later in the week (my son only went to daycare once every 2 weeks) The news reported the daycare was where a measles outbreak happened. Well the son did not get measles and he saved himself by overeating (little hollow leg that he was).

As far as the dogs are concerned sometimes the fact of having a member that lasted as long as he did is a blessing. But never say youwill not get another dog. On March 8th of this year my faithful companion Nickie a Brittany spaniel boy dog died of cancer. My wife and had decided we would wait for a few months (yea sure) Well we were crusing the petfinder website when we spotted a male britt in the shelter 60 miles from us. I immediately decided that we would go and see him. well Rocky has been a faithful companion everysince April8th of this year. Rocky is a youthful and more playful companion and is a mixed brittany-Springer Spanial. WE JUST NEVER KNOW

Our prayers are in for you from my wife and me and the dogs for you. God bless.

Sorry about your day

Sometimes getting thru another day seems like the hardest thing you can do. I lost my german shepard three years ago. I got him when I was twenty one and he passed when I was thirty five.I guess you could say we were inseperable he went with me everywhere and was the best friend you could ask for. My daughter is by far the greatest thing that ever happened to me even when you factor in the late nights with no sleep because of some mystery stomach bug or scary shadow. I can definitly say I wouldnt change any of it for the world.
