I think my guy Brad K shot himself in the foot today. The next time he sees the 48 go by, he can kiss his championship goodbye. Go 88! I’m glad Junior is okay and is back.

What’s the bet on getting this race in before Tuesday? Sandy is coming through on Sunday with rain through Tuesday morning. Is there an over/under?

Last Sunday was a very bad one for me. In the afternoon Larsen, our 6 year old Belgian Tervuren was clearly feeling badly. At 2 a.m. I had his head in my lap and was petting him when he stopped breathing. The symptoms were that of "Bloating" which can be caused by the stomach flipping around and the kink caused cuts off blood flow to the intestines and other abdominal organs. It can also be caused by gas pressure. Bloating in dogs is the second most frequent cause of death, behind cancer. I had never heard of bloating in dogs before. Dog owners should do a web search on bloating in dogs to know what the initial symptoms are, especially since immediate treatment is required to save the dog's life. RIP Larsen.

Larsen on his throne

Sorry to hear of the loss of your buddy, Larsen.

I lost a precious Siamese cat due to blockage a while back, the dumb thing ate plastic bags for some nutty reason.. eventually his intestines were blocked to where blood flow was lost and even when operated on, no salvageable innard was left,, so I’m hesitant to tell my wife about bloating in dogs, she panics over the poodles enough already over allergies and such..

Hang in there, Bud.

Thanks Norm. My wife is away visiting her parents for their birthdays. They live in Jakarta, Indonesia and my wife does not get back until Thursday. She babied Larsen and he was totally protective of her. She is in disbelief.

Larsen was named after the character Wolf Larsen from Jack London’s novel The Sea Wolf.

Best wishes and a firm hug.. Hard to offer anything but hang in there.. Time heals the pain, Jack D dulls it ..

We been thru quite a few losses here over the years.. cats, up until now. We had a small herd of siamese indoors and feral outback. that was a rough 10-15 years.

I’m going Egyptian myself, they can wrap the poodles when they’re gone and toss ‘em on top of me in my reclined LazyBoy in the bunker..

Thanks. Don’t have any JD, but tubebender sent me some wine. I did not recognize the brand, but I think it was Leon’s Best Opossum Blanc. It seems to have the end of an opossum tail, kind of like the Mexican Tequila. I tried a glass, but after that I was being attacked by bats riding a broom with the shrieking face of hillary and rattlesnakes with the face of zer0 saying “come closer, trust me”. I think I will give the rest of the bottle to my lib neighbor who has her yard festooned with leftist political campaign signs. Would that be mean?

My wife was born in Indonesia. She went to private Catholic schools and earned a degree in Industrial Engineering in college. She risked church bombings. Now she is a US naturalized citizen and will be voting for the first time this election. She is currently visiting her parents as her father’s 70th birthday and her mother’s birthday are only weeks apart. She will be back in time to VOTE the democrats out. She lived under a communist leader who was trying to unite Indonesia, China and North Korea. She cannot fathom how STUPID any 0bama voters mut be.

Will ‘Sandy’ blow the competition away?

Will the Chase erode in a sea of foam?

Will this FReepathon be over before Obama takes ‘The Beast’ for final spin..? 37%

Stay Tuned.

This and more questions to be answered shortly at M’ville.

Ping!
