Now I see how you manage to build in such a precise way. They could even dab glue un those difficult to reach spots.

Good and Sad news

Post  fredvon4 on Mon Aug 15, 2016 10:44 am

The good first
Brother Gus was at hospital last and is declared heart Worm free and can now begin the active life he so desires and deserves...

Most of his aggressive and bad behaviors have been reduced or eliminated...mostly with the understanding he is safe, healthy, well feed, and loved equally with his siblings

For some reason my phone will not show camera gallery so I am frustrated to not be able to show off how healthy he looks

Gus is a sage, smart, and cunning doggy who loves to cheat to get his way

Example: Sister Frenchie Sapherie is chewing on a hoof and Gus wants it.... instead of trying to steal it ...he pretends to hear some out side commotions...barks and starts to run for the doggie door... all the other dogs get hyper and follow.... Gus does a 180 and returns to steal the hoof while all the others fight to be first out the door and chase the non existent squirrel or whatever they think Gus heard...crafty lil bugger

The Sad
This week before the rains and lower temps we had a 107F day....(with high humidity was actually more like 115F )

At dinner time I called all of our 5 to come eat...Opie was absent.... Opie was our older male Boston

after full search of property we found him.... assumption is heat stroke or heart failure

Just so you know we have a main house and two shops we work in daily: each with doggie flap door, AC, and fresh water
Opie was out in my shop under the computer desk

As we prepared him to rest with the other past family members, Renie and I cried and prayed his passing was indeed natural and quick

I know most of you can relate

Fred and Renie, You have my heartfelt condolences. Knowing that he had a good life, was loved, had great companionship and compassionate care is all he could ask for.
It’s hard to say goodbye to such a special companion.
My thoughts are with you both.
May fond memories of Opie warm your heart always.

Thanks friends

Around here we have a ritual... based on many years ago a dog taken to the vet for final passage... then off to the vet provided resting place... all our other dogs at the time moped and searched for weeks

Since then, when this was done, we brought the dog home for all to see and sniff...then off to final resting

We learned that our family dogs do indeed grieve as we do

Hard to type this....but as Renie and I laid Opie in his final place, they all sat and watched.... truly surreal and touching

RIP Opie, we miss your dearly

Lost my Great Dane last week, probably the same way yours went Fred. He was let outside and he never came back in. Found him dead in the grass. He was 12 though and could barely walk. Not much for holding in his stool either. So the way I look at it he chose how he wanted to go. The good thing is I didn't have to make the decision for him and it saved me the vet bill. In the end he got me as I had to dig a 4ft hole in this crazy heat!

I am not really an indoor animal kind of guy, but I can feel for you Fred. Sorry bud.

I kinda took this post off track, the pictures of the helpers were hilarious!

Thanks Ron

Very sorry for your loss also

And yes until the rains started yesterday the heat has been tough the last 8 weeks... digging the hole nearly had me resting with Opie

You did not take this thread off track

Shop helpers: cats, dogs, birds, frogs, mice, and even glue dobbing cockroaches are all part of the experience

There are a few times this year I had the doors open and had to capture and release some little bird from the shop and or shoo out the occasional wasp or butterfly

I never seem to be able to think to photo the frequent scorpion visits...much too busy capturing and disposing of the unwelcome helpers

Hoping to "cheer" this thread up a little bit, with a recent photo of "Linus" that my wife Lynne took tonight.



Sorry.. I can't orient it properly.. Linus sits like this frequently.. but in this photo, he actually looks like a stuffed-animal!

To good of a picture to waste roddie.  Got a crook in my neck yesterday installing a ceiling fan in my daughter's house and had to view it upright.

Got a kick out of Fred's ushering out butterfly's etc from his shop.  My grandson's reverence for life would rival Schweitzer's did the same with a West Virginia "stink bug" while visiting a couple of years ago.  We had these little brown and white scorpions in Florida that didn't receive the same consideration.

Thanks Bob! I've had this happen with photos before.. and I don't know the cause. Is there some setting in properties that needs to be switched? My wife took the photo using her phone.. and shared via email. It uploaded sideways to my laptop.. but views correctly "there" after rotating.

Miss Lilly

Post  fredvon4 on Mon Sep 12, 2016 10:30 am

Ian's poor Puppy thread and the model build with miss Lilly (too cute) got me thinking that I was forgetting something. I took my feeble brain a while to remember

Recently The folks who sponsor the micro chips in our dogs sent me one of the annual reminders to keep the data updated. Included in the e-mail was a "Responsible Owners Checklist".

8 things ----like the obvious: "Provide your pet with food, water, shelter, healthcare and companionship"

But number 7 was what I forgot: "Plan and prepare for an emergency or disaster, including assembling an evacuation kit"

Wife and I are some distance away from children and there are a few scenarios where our 4 legged family may need rescuing, finding, perhaps just food and water

I need to think some about a plan for something like..bad car accident returning or going to Date Night dinner and a movie

Maybe something simple like a wallet or purse card with info and request to please notify this person to check on our family pets at home


lots more to consider

The previous owners left this plea on the entrance door to our house.  I thought it a nice idea so I left it.



I'm dog sitting my Son's dog for a few days while they go to Virginia Beach.  Shelby of Mustang fame and my Spike.  Two old gentlemen that don't exactly love each other.



Ol' Shel stays mostly upstairs by their when at here bedroom waiting for them to return.



Spike is blind, Shelby is rapidly heading that way.

Shop Helpers resurrected for Xmas

Post  fredvon4 on Sun Dec 18, 2016 2:27 pm

OR
Do YOU include you helpers with Xmas cheer and gifts.......we do

I know there is a sentiment out there that dogs n cats are not sentient and I strongly disagree

I know there is a crowd that believe all dog n cat behavior is food motivated and I strongly disagree

Way too many of God's children have landed at our door stoop... 2 and 4 legged varieties

Although the 4 legged versions do not speak English..they all seem to be able to communicate

I just dug real deep and gifted our local shelter (no kill) a very substantial donation....

I intend next week to take my grandchildren there and have a smallish lecture about giving, loving, and being cogent to ALL of God's creatures...without depriving your primary responsibilities to living family

I firmly believe EACH of us has responsibility--- and IF we all did a very modest amount of due diligence---- the burden is not so great....

BTW Gus has turned into a super great and very cool doggy...all in my/our family love him immensely....

Recently, a New to Gus, but long time girlfriend of my wife visited...Gus slept with her each night and when Dorothy had to go back to North Carolina, Gus moped for several days

We've been Adopter/caregivers/forever home to many Canine offspring over the years. I'd be hard pressed to pick out a favorite , as they each have had endearing traits. I saw this on FB and laughed so hard cause it reminded me of  Roxy, who thought she was human and this seemed so real. Hope you enjoy it too!!

PS: thanks to Rusty, for the original talking dog post....his wife Holly showed it to him a few threads back. ( Loss of short term memory = partstimers )

I love reviewing this thread

Post  fredvon4 on Fri Jan 20, 2017 11:03 am

Every several days of my mundane retired life I just sit and watch the shop helpers getting into what ever trouble they can find

I truly regret NOT being able to capture much of their antics in photos

of course eventually they settle down to find a place to nap until the next burst of grab arssed antics

A few months back I got a LOT of different laser Cut guides, triangles, various sized rib holders, and alignment jigs form a few different internet sources...like the great tool Rusty videoed and premiered from Walt Umland....Gus and Sapheri found them and are happy to chew thim into shreds of Ply not resembling their original shape... forcing me to find another storage solution besides the big box on the floor.... grrr

Gus... just came up and decided HE needed to let me know I was ignoring him---- and as I stopped to mess with him---- he told me that miss Lilly in England, must be helping to entertain her Human as he recovers from Eye Surgery. Gus asked me, to tell Lilly, that Ian will get better and resume dropping stuff on the floor for her to play with

Gus is a very intuitive little Frenchie!!

As some of you know, we have cats.. and recently adopted our fourth. Her name is "Sally". She's a kitten. Our first three are siblings that are now close to five years old. Two males and a female; "Charlie", "Linus", and "Lucy".. Laughing

L/R-Linus, Charlie and Lucy. Sally is standing.



This is "Sally".. She's a spitfire.. who farts frequently.. with the intensity of a large dog.. Doh!



I bought them a toy for Christmas, that is the best cat-toy I've ever seen! The kitten destroyed it after a series of maybe half a dozen supervised uses.. so it's been sitting awaiting some attention by me, to see if I can fix it.

In the meantime.. I bought another one yesterday.. Laughing




It costs $10 and uses one AAA battery. The butterfly is made of .005" Mylar.. and flutters at the end of a piece of .020" spring-wire.

Here's what happened to the first toy...



Shocked.. I may fashion an airplane to replace the butterfly.. then it will become my toy! Laughing

My Son rescued this puppy from the middle of a street, it was about 8 weeks old. Bonnie is about 4 months now and outgrown it bed, its going to be a large dog.
Almost died from Parvo 3 weeks ago, took three days of intensive care at the Vet to save her. She is a real clown and needs constant attention, my Son works 40 hours a week so it my job.
House training, leash training, general training has been a hand full. She would love to have a cat party at your house. lol!
For some reason the photos got turned 90 degrees in upload??

Glad she's OK now Doug. I had to look-up Parvo.. It's a good thing she was treated in time. I LOVE animals... and hate to see them suffering/ailing from anything. She looks like a sweetheart!

IDK why certain photos don't orient correctly. It's happened to me a few times when posting too. I think it has something to do with shooting the original image as "portrait" rather than "landscape".. but I don't know the fix.

Bob (rsv1cox) recently fixed one for me in "this" thread, a couple of posts back. Other members have done the same for me in other threads. Maybe someone will chime-in that knows what to do? I've tried rotating and re-saving the image.. but nothing helps.

Parvo was new to me and I'm old, it came before all the puppy shots were complete. She was on IV for three days, they keep them alive with fluids and nutrients till the dogs own system fights off
the virus. I guess you have to keep puppys isolated till all the shots are complete. Came on fast and small window for survival, without treatment almost all die.
Thanks for your thoughts. She looked at me with sad, sick puppy eyes and money didn't matter anymore.


wheres my treat!!!



Any help with breed would be appreciated, I think part Swiss Mountain Dog

My step-daughter and her fiancé's dog "Atlas". He's a handsome boy.. but his masters have a particular way of capturing him in photos that's pretty amazing. He's an "Aussie".




Daddy's a "lobsterman".. They live near the coast.

I had 2 guest dogs this weekend. My parents boxer and my brother's border collie. My cat was NOT impressed. He let me know with clawing my back "rescuing" him from the border collie who has cats for company and is a cat lover himself.

Blood aside it was amusing until they all found their space for the couple days.
