Snow stopped, then started again. But it's little flakes now, before it was huge puffballs.

Should go get the mail.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Yep

Any reason why you are perhaps dying tomorrow? Because I will track you down and make your eternity miserable if you do.

WE LURV YOU TOO! Dork!!!

Puppies turn into dogs and it rains.

No poop yet today.
What is he waiting for?
It is raining, not hard, that starts when the walk is at it's furthest point from the house.

Well then they would need to foster puppies, because they all turn into dogs otherwise.

i do. i have been assured by a very knowing ukanadian of my acquaintance in gaithersburg, that a young healthy puppy well nursed is at a month old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and i make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee or a ragout.

2-7 days, but I am hoping for faster results! (now, dammit - now!)

gotta say I just took a nap and rolling over wasn't as painful as it has been. No screaming pain from my butt into my thigh down to my knee....just a dull roar lol!

well, I think it is

gotta say the doc did a great job today - they offer sedation if you want it but I opted out....I really didn't feel much of anything. They use fluoroscopy to position the spinal needle...if I ever have to have it again I might watch the monitor!

oh my Just read in the Pittsburgh paper about the death of a 3-day old baby - was apparently bitten by at least one of four family dogs - had been left in a baby carrier on the floor while the mother went to the bathroom. She was gone for 10 minutes, supposedly. She came back to find blood all over the one dog (a husky) and the baby had horrific head wounds and died at the hospital.

I don't remember leaving a tiny baby alone, even without a bunch of dogs.

Not good. Baby couldn't be a threat to the dogs. Too young.
The dogs should have been able to smell baby.

Yes, I do believe there are bad dogs, just like bad people.

I know...I'm not a parent but one thing my parents gave me was common sense.

As for the dogs, with 4 of them, who knows what pack instinct took over. Could have been a possession issue, or maybe the infant squeaked/cried and sounded like prey....who knows. The report said they took 2 of the dogs out of the house, a husky and a pit bull...but it was the husky with blood on it's mouth. And that doesn't surprise me a bit. A lot of huskies are wired differently.

I would be more concerned about the reddog using that big ol' paw of his, trying to check things out. The cats wouldn't care. They'd sniff, Vicki might try to give it a bath...but other than that they wouldn't care.

Lynn - glad you did not have a hard time with the epidural. All fingers and toes crossed that you will be feeling great in a couple of days (maybe even tomorrow!) Horrible story about the dogs and the baby - I so agree with everyone who has said the Mom used no common sense. Wonder if it was a teenager? Or, then again, I have heard that when you have a LOT of kids, you don't worry so much or sweat the small stuff. In this case, it certainly was not small stuff to do something that stupid.

gotta say, I don't recall much of it. I am not a huge Disney fan, esp. of their animal movies.

My very first cats had never been around kids, but my big Boris (who was 12) crawled right up next to my godson the first time they brought him here and became his protector. And as the kiddo grew and became mobile he would lay on top the cat and maul him and Boris loved every minute of it.
