A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day
Free Republic made its debut in September, 1996, and the forum was added in early 1997.   Over 200,000 people have registered for posting privileges on Free Republic, and the forum is read daily by tens of thousands of concerned citizens and patriots from all around the country and the world.
A Few of FR's Finest....Every Day was introduced on June 24, 2002. It's only a small room in JimRob's house where we can get to know one another a little better; salute and support our military and our leaders; pray for those in need; and congratulate those deserving. We strive to keep our threads entertaining, fun, and pleasing to look at, and often have guest writers contribute an essay.
On Mondays please visit us to see photos of A FEW OF FR'S VETERANS AND ACTIVE MILITARY










Welcome to Warm Fuzzy Wednesday at the Finest. For those who start counting the days on Monday until the weekend, we're halfway there! So we're here to banish those doldrums and make you smile inside! Please feel free to post sweet graphics and/or little stories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy - or just come by and give us a smile. Only two more days 'til the weekend!

This is a pleasant relief after a day deluged with Obamaniacal nonsense. Thanks for this and love those pictures. So nice.

I’m so sorry, DD..
I am awaiting word on my daughter’s kitty Trubble..one of 5 abandoned kittens I helped to survive and who was a constant buddy to me when I was staying with my daaughter..He is very young to have blocked kidneys..They are waiting to see if the catheter can come out and he can function..I lost an older male kitty with this so I am praying his kidneys function without reblocking ..
The vet said an older cat would have been dead already .He is at the vets of course.

Sorry to hear about Cooper. We just brought our 12-year old mutt (Australian Shep/husky/??) back from the vet after he had his leg amputated with a tumor into the bone. The tumor wasn’t malignant, and after 10 days he is able to go a couple hundred feet before he poops out, so things are looking up.

My little girls had a friend over today and I guess they didn’t explain the whole thing very well to her. They showed her where the incision was. The friend asked “How did THAT happen?” Mom was there and said “That’s the cut that the vet made to remove his leg.” The little girl replied “Well, is he going to put in back ON?!” :)

awe, it is so hard for young ones to start understanding the medical problems that affect their pets, parents, grandparents & selfs.

I hope Cooper does well. If he was overweight it will be a bit harder for him to get around for longer periods of time. How great you were able to give him another chance to be a friend to you all.. They are family & we just hate when they have pain/problems

oh Meg I hope Trubble is okay..

I have posted before but many may have missed it .. for both dogs & cats, an acid food in their diet regularly helps prevent urinary problems, stones etc.

For my pets I put catsup or spaghetti sauce in their food about 3 times a week. I mix it well with wet/dry food.

Learned this from the cat fancier’s club I was in. Most had catteries of many & expensive cats & they swore by it. It came up after I had the same experience as your daughter & mentioned it at a meeting.

I never again had a problem & have had a LOT of cats for a LOT of years.

I also add garlic to the food at the same time.

Thanks for fuzzy Wednesday Billie.. LOVE The pledge & the ping..

Raining pretty hard here the past two days. It turns to snow later today ...the weather man said had this all been snow it would have been 30 inches!!!!

My two warm fuzzies did NOT mind the hike yesterday with Pat/John & Johns two dogs.. and wont mind it again today. I am glad they are not picky about getting their fur or paws wet.

March 19, 2008
A Fragile Lamb
He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities. —Isaiah 53:5

After the Easter eggs were located and the Easter baskets had been opened, Uncle Jay felt compelled to find out whether the white chocolate lamb was hollow or solid. Without thinking of the potential consequences, he squeezed the lamb. Suddenly Jay’s whole body stiffened, as if he’d ingested some paralyzing poison. Finally his eyes moved to see if anyone had witnessed the deed. His thumb, however, remained stuck in the side of the lamb.

We waited for the reaction. A wail. A howl. A cry of anguish over the crushed chocolate candy. As the adults in the room scrambled for words that would soothe the sorrow of 3-year-old Jenna, she calmly spoke words that soothed us. “That’s okay, Uncle Jay. The lamb would have been broken when I ate him anyway.”

While we adults tried to make sacred memories out of Easter traditions, a 3-year-old made a sacred moment for us. She reminded us that Easter is about the perfect Lamb of God, broken so that we can be whole. Her youthful wisdom reminds me of the words we recall at communion: “This is My body which is broken for you.” May we taste and see that the life He offers is sweeter than anything we concoct for ourselves.

See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?  —Watts

Nothing speaks more clearly of God’s love than the cross.

Bible in One Year: Deuteronomy 13–15; Proverbs 27:15-27

Dolly, I have been reading everyone’s post and I am more confused than ever. Maybe I got back on the computer too early~~LOL~~. I hate to bother Dave, but is it Cooper who died. After reading so many posts concerning this...I don’t think I have it straight. (Cooper was sick and died, correct?) I knew Cooper had been sick but as I kept reading...I wasn’t sure.

Wrote Dave twice and I think I will go back to bed! NOT!

Yes if I am reading correctly (never quite sure about that), it is cooper, the pup of Dave’s daughter. I added to the confusion (what else is new?)

FR is posting very laborously for me so I am going to go do some more housework!

Thank you, (((Dolly)))I lost Sassy 1 at age 15 to this and I am so concerned..He is hanging in there but the outcome after the catheter is removed is a concern..This kitty is about 3...It affects males much more than females...I am going to give your hint a try nevertheless and pass it on to my daughter. My daughter is very picky about her pet food..I am very surprised that T was struck with this. He is the family entertainer kitty and much loved by my SIL, too.
By the way the “deluge” was north of me..I just got a nice rain..nothing like the Dallas area and points north

Thanks Meg. I am some better but not well. Still having some shooting pains in my tummy but this happens sometimes. At least that bad part is over.

I was so sorry about your cat being sick. I don’t think I have heard about it before. Remember, my son’s cat just had to be put down recently....she was 17 and a real sweetie. It hurts bad, doesn’t it? Hope your cat can get well from this kidney problem.

Thanks for your warm comments about our “grandson” Cooper. Like all pets, he was pretty special. The cancer spread very rapidly and symptoms didn’t materialize until it was too late.

I’ll be leaving shortly to go picket at our local recruiting center. Decked out in Red, White and Blue, Old Glory and a sign or two, I’ll provoke some thought in the passing motorists to honor our troops.

Eagles Up!
