I wasn't rubbing in the cooler temperatures here Naoma. I hoped it might bring back some memories to help cool you off. ;)

Nice s'caps of Paula, Penelope, and Blueberry Iona. Paula looks ready. :)

My poor Kitty has been very ill since Friday and spending two days at the vet hasn't helped. He was able to come home today but this is not good. :(

The Fall colors lift me up as do the Wolf....thank you Scott.

i am hoping for your kitty. I understand. Miss Bleu has a horrible ear issue with a perforated ear drum and we are getting to the bottom of it (with a culture). I hope she can feel better, doing fairly well for an old golden retriever (now 12.5). As a little boy with leukemia who lives near me said "Isn't that old enough to hit the hay?"....he meant "kick the bucket". Gotta love children, he is 11 or 12 and a fighter with his cancer.

Scott, my heart is heavy for kitty. You didn't say what the issue is but I know you are doing everything in your power to help him. :hug:

Carolyn, pets ailing & aging are emotional all the way around. :yes:

Iona, in seeing the pic of Paula, birth has to must be imminent.

Naoma, about the weather....it's delightful. We just took a walk at 70 degrees, it's a bit humid, but still amazing. It is going back up I know but should then go back down. Everyone I speak to is thrilled.

And yes, aging pets have issues. What Bleu has is considered to be "swimmer's ear", nasty bacterial infection. Hopefully once they figure out what oral antibiotic to give we can finally get rid of it. :)
Have a happy day,
carolyn

Thanks Carolyn. I hope Bleu gets healthy soon. :)
"Hit the hay" is pretty good. I hope the boy is able to win his battle with that horrible disease.

Thank you Naoma. :)
Kitty's illness progressed quickly. Wednesday everything was normal. Thursday he cut out play time by a lot. Friday he hadn't eaten, drank, or used the litter box. Saturday and Sunday were spent at the vet trying to find out what the problem was. Monday he was allowed to come home but nothing had changed. Feeding him by syringe and giving meds wasn't working as he vomits everything up. No change today and I wasn't going to let him go through this any longer. A very difficult decision but I was with him the entire time as he peacefully exited. He was in his 14th year but I was hoping for several more. :(

Thanks about Kitty and for the update on Paula Iona. :)

I am so sorry about Kitty Scott....my heart goes out to you.

My Trixie at 13 passed in such a way too, very sick crying all weekend. The decision was hard then too. And I was dreaming about her last night, felt her warm presence.

I hope you feel her spirit with you in quiet moments.
with love,
carolyn

P.S. The colors....superb. Thank you for that.

Nesties :grhug:

So sorry to read and hear about Kitty Scott oh well if he was old hes in a better place and not suffering anymore Scott its us who miss our fur babies RIP Kitty Scotts family will miss you :cat: :cry1:

I know the feeling Scott as does Naoma and Carolyn and I'm sure Iona as our fur babies are all getting old like us :brknhrt:

Garys older brother came to visit us a few weeks back and we hadn't seen Rick or Bibi in 25 years in fact it was Texas at Tinas and Jacks wedding 25 years ago.....they were on a cruise ship headed for Hawaii and stopped in to visit on their way they had never been to Vancouver so it was quite the event and Rick called us yesterday they got back safe as they flew back direct from Hawaii to Toronto :huggie: :love:

Tina Garys sister is in Texas with Lynn her daughter my niece in law after 15 years now that she lives in Indiana Jack didn't go

Talked to my mother in law and she's so deaf she can hear me tell her that Gary got his I phone stolen last week out of the truck and to tell her that it will be 5 more days for the new replacement phone to arrive by UPS so don't use Garys number use mine

And I'm having serious discussions with my upstairs neighbors over the kids banging overhead and the heat :roll: as its been as low as 4o cel or 39' o F Carolyn but today its 10o C or 50o F bringing up the weather temps my friend

Iona please link me up to M and Harriett I've lost the page with all these new updates to Windows 10 :ohmy: :dunno:

Einstein cant get too much better as his back legs have gone due to old age but the Vet says its a slipped disk in his back so its two meds 1 whiter cap twice a day and 1 brown half tablet he eats like a treat.....wish me luck he's a lot to take care of for both Gary and I as he's 13 and so sorry for Bleu and his ear it was his gums a while back but got better with me and the vets treatment antibiotics and brushing his teeth as they won't do teeth work because they would have to put him asleep and at 13 he's too old :ohmy:

off got to fix dinner for Gary he will be home by 6PM

Hey that wolf looks like Naoma's Z

miss you guys but I watch Shameless everyday playing catchup for 6 seasons I'm only on season 1 7 Ep :mihihi: :w00t: :bye 1: waiting on my eagles to start mating :eag: :hatch: :hatch: :eag:

Thanks Carolyn, Naoma, Iona, and Judi. We all go through this eventually but it still sucks big time when it happens.
I've "seen" him several times out of the corner of my eye in the places he usually was and heard him purring last night as he routinely slept on my bed. The mind loves to play tricks. :)

Thanks for the puppy update and s'cap Iona. :)

Scott, your mind is not playing tricks. He is there for you to let you know that he is content. You are the bestest pet owner, remember that. :)

What a beautiful litter, Iona. :rh:

I agree with Carolyn, Scott. I call Zeke by names of past dogs I still have engraved in my heart. It takes a while for me, to not see things out the corner of my eye that is long familiar. I like to think like Carolyn too, that they are letting us know they are still around. :hug:

Judi, wonderful for you guys to see family after such a long time. :thumlft:
I hope BigE is able to be comfortable and enjoy your love. :)

I've checked in on the FL nests & there is nest activity. :hooray:

A bit more on that subject Naoma and Scott.....After Gus Gus passed away (my daughter's golden retriever age 9 of cancer, yuck)....Catherine's mother-in-law on multiple occasions "saw" him running in the yard and playing happily. She is sure of it and I am sure of what she saw. His presence is still there albeit a bit "invisible".

I too sometimes mess up names on pets...and if I remember correctly, which I do, my mom tended to call us kids (3 of us) by each other's names and sometimes the dog. :) We responded no matter what.
Good Night,

May i add Something ?
I know how it can be so sad too.

If it can help
In last February 22 and 25, B13 and B12 (1 and 4 days old) the 2 eaglets from "Berry College" passed away :cry1:
They also disapeared from the nest as now they are flying with their Mom
The next month, March 8, Dad Berry was in the nest and took off as IrishEyes took this following pic. There was nothing in the nest nor in Dad's talons but as quick i saw the pic, i was sure that one or may be two eaglets were in the nest under him to say we stay among you and will be with you each time you will think of us. We will wait for you. :( :bye 1: :grhug:

Oh Philjo, you brought me to tears....happy ones. That is exactly what I meant. There are many other instances I can recount to all of you including a visit by my mom to my daughter after she passed away, and many pets, as well as some other gifts that would confound some folks, but....that picture says it all.

Yes, you added something great!
