    Default Might Not Be Around The Board Much...

    I just wanted to let everyone here know that I might not be around much, except to drop in and read posts, until next weekend.

    The reason being is that I have just found out that my 7 year old Black Lab/Chow mix Harley is going to have to be put down due to an aggressive cancer that is in her lungs, spleen, and pancreas. She is scheduled to go in next weekend and I wanted to spend some quality time with her before I have to say goodbye.

    So, if you don't see me around, this is why.

    By the way, in case you are curious, here's a picture with Harley and me:

    Ryan,

    My heart-felt condolences. Had to do the same thing with my 9-year old yellow Lab, Timberlea's Zacheriah Highhand (Zack), just a couple of years ago. Advanced hip dysplasia.

    I've lost a few good pets (companions) over the years. It is never easy and always takes a toll. We'll all be around here when you get back.

    A Prayer for Animals

    Albert Schweitzer


    Hear our humble prayer, O God,
    for our friends, the animals,
    especially for those who are suffering;
    for any that are lost or deserted,
    or frightened or hungry.
    We entreat for them all



    Thy mercy and pity,
    and for those who deal with them,
    we ask a heart of compassion
    and gentle hands and kindly words.


    Make us, ourselves,
    to be true friends to animals
    and so to share
    the blessings
    of the merciful.

    Ryan,
    I am sorry to hear about your loss. May she rest in peace.
    Where am I going and why am I in this handbasket???

    First, I'd just like to thank everyone for their well wishes.

    Second, the deed was done yesterday. It certainly was difficult. I'm glad I was able to have one additional week to enjoy Harley's company.

    Now that it is over, I plan on resuming my prior posting habits.

    Again, thanks for the support everyone!
