She doesn't whine or whimper. She's mostly just lethargic. But the struggling to get to her feet is an obviouys sign. Not sure how much pain she's actually in.

I've put up with worse, for longer. Most fans seem to have a wobble, if, like me, you are paranoid about.

My fixture fell and smashed because it was installed wrong. I replaced it, so it was me.

It wouldn't worry me so much if it weren't the second incidence. Both times, I saw how they are attached (simply) and did my best to attach it. The second time, being informed by my first failure, I paid closer attention to the suspension assembly, and made damned sure I did it correctly.

To no avail.

That kind of failure is enough to shake my confidence in some of my other maintenance efforts.

Whenever Molly (great dane mix) was struggling we just helped her up. And once she was up, instead of laying down, she liked to kind of half sit on the couch. You can post as much sentimental stuff as you want !

This is close to what we got:

https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/n...9837p.html#srp

Cheap! Often goes on sale, I think we paid 10 dollars each for the first two, was a promotion of some kind. I like them because they are utterly simple and inconspicuous.

ETA: It's interesting to me how lighting designers appear to be still coming to grips with the possibilities of LED lighting. A lot of the current 'designer' efforts remind me of 1950s styles, often awkward-looking derivations from earlier technologies.

I second the 'all the sentiment you want' comment, PH. I had to put my Hannah down a little while ago, and for years now, it's been too soon to get a new dog, put her bowl away...

Those lights look good. I'll have to go look at them 'in-store', but that price - holy shit that's nice. I could put multiple lights up with that kind of pricing! Thanks. (I don't know if you know this, but new construction, even of a simple 12x12 addition, is spendy)

I know, new construction, even just a shed, is expensive, and there are endless 'little things' that add up to a ton of money eve after the initial outlay of lumber etc. Hell, just rebuilding our bathroom last year was outrageously spendy.

If I had a 2x6 for every time I heard 'the price has gone up since corona', I would be able to build another.

The fixture is fine. I'm embarrased about the shitty KLH speaker and over-the-wall wire conduit.
I didn't even see it..


But now that you mention, maybe I should go look

I wish more people posted pics. Love seeing others faces and ... your dog is so cute. Very much picture worthy. And this pic of you is way better than your work group shot.

I hated that I posted a sentimental picture the other night... felt like a fucking fool ie, who wants to see this shit. But, being on the opposite side - it's definitely nice seeing other people's pictures.

Maybe judge by her eyes.. ?


Cause you know... if we, as humans are lethargic and struggle, it doesn't necessarily mean we are ready to go.



When their hips go out, and they have poor use of their intestinal tract.. is when they might need to do :/ When they can't poop... might be the sign :


I had a cat that was >20 years old (stray, so we didn't know the exact age). We put him down when he could no longer poop on his own... he sat on the recliner for 2 days, and I flipped him from one side to another. Scheduled an appointment for euthanasia, and he was gone within a half second the medication went through his body.


The iguana had the same thing.. his intestinal tract went on him.


I think I could have done more for the iguana.. but that's past now. I know he wasn't ready to die yet.


Your dog might still be okay for a little bit. As said, judge by the eyes. If he's okay struggling to get up.. let him live, and let him still continue to be loved for awhile

Our last cat that died, Hobbes, was very tragic. We adopted him as a stray and he was super shy.. hid under the bed, and we had to present him food while he hid under the bed. About 3 weeks later, he started to come around a bit.. but he still was shy... ran from under the bed to other secluded areas of the apartment. Worked on him a lot, and when he finally came out, he was such a sweetheart. Had the 1st baby, and he let her touch him and pet him. He finally came around and had the whole apartment at his disposal. He got along really well with our other cat, Olive. 2 years past, and he was the sweetest cat ever. He still had a shy demeanor, but seemed so grateful always. Cried liked crazy to get his wet food in the evenings. Then he suddenly developed FIP (Feline infectious peritonitis) - it's actually a form of coronavirus, for cats. We have no idea how he caught this.. it seems it was latent in his body. Took him to the vets, got a bunch of meds.. but the diagnosis for this kind of thing is inevitably, death. (90% of cases). In a matter of 1 week, he was unable to eat, and his stomach was bloated. He died at home. And he died when I wasn't there.. I left to drive my co-worker, and came back to find him already dead. We then took him to the vets for cremation. I managed to get past the counter procedure where I had to sign off, and was okay when I left his body in the room. But once I left the room, I started sobbing uncontrollably. It wasn't fair that such a sweet soul had to have this sort of end... he was barely able to live, and he just started living and coming around and really enjoying himself.

Whenever we talk about him, or see any pictures of him, we both start to cry. Every time.
