my mom put a dog down when i was 14 or 15. he followed her home and we kept him, but, he was a terrible car chaser and he could jump out of a yard with a 6' fence (he was only the size of a basenji) and he was impossible to house break. we tried everything we read and heard to train him not to chase cars. he ended up getting hit by a car about 3 times and in the meantime was destroying our house. my mom didn't know what else to do, so, she told me she found a new home for him. on a farm with nice people. she also brought me home a new coat. i was fairly sure she didn't find him a new home, but, i didn't push the issue.
of course, i found out 10 years later, when the family was just sitting around talking. i was a pretty moody kid, so, she probably did the right thing at the time. but, i felt bad that she had to make the decision at all and alone.
sorry you had to make that choice teresa. my heart goes out to you. emoticon

Thanks. I cried more than the twins. They think we found her a new home tho. I hated so much doing that but I am so scared that she was going to hurt another animal for she was out blood when she went after them. I also feel that she may have hurt a person to if they got in her way of getting to another animal very much after the way my neighbor said she done her over the weekend.
I thought about trying to find her a new home but I did not want to pass along trouble like that to someone else. I was scared they might try to get her into dog fighting or something like that and I did not want to be thinking that she could be in pain like that. I have never had to put a animal down and hope I dont ever again.

Another day of pain from my knee. I did get in some exercise today even with the pain tho. I am ready for bed now for I have to get up early in the morning and out the door to take care of something that I really don't really want to do but its a have to thing. I am going to have to have a dog put down. I am telling my kids that I am giving her away. She is part lab and pit. Well the pit part is taking over and she really hates other animals. We have had to put her on a chain but she keeps braking them or getting off some way all the time. She heads right for my neighbors,she will wait for them to open a door so the dogs will run and she can get any one of the three. She has even went up the road about a mile and jumped on their dog a few times. When she is on the chain if she sees any animal she has a fit and tries to get off to run after them. well this weekend she did brake a new two week old chain and got my neighbors dog. When my neighbor came running across the yard yelling my dog stopped dragging her dog,held it down and grawled and barked at her a few times showing her teeth.

So I don't feel that it would be safe to give her away, plus that is what the pound told me when I tried to get them to take her (they would not).

have been very busy in the office. have lots to do. this morning i woke up and while i was in the bathroom getting ready for a shower, my back tweaked and went out. this happened last year. it was very painful last year and i had trouble standing straight up. this time it's very uncomfortable to sit and move with any speed, but, not as painful as last time.
so, i took some motrin and went back to bed for a bit. i hate falling asleep again in the morning, i have such weird dreams. in one part of my dream, i had to pee and dr phil was conducting a group therapy session in the only bathroom. i had to sneak in and use the toilet and then do the ole, excuse me, excuse me, pardon me thing to climb over everyone and get to the sink to wash my hands. too strange.
anyway, back still hurts, but, i can't take the whole day off, i will get too far behind.

Maw - I am getting a visual of you and the kittens all around you. So cute! Some friends leave us, and then we make new ones. Cycle of life, I guess.

I have been super busy. We finally closed on our refinancing. And I finally got my car window fixed and my new car radio installed (Bday gift from Hubby). My car window was stuck in the down position, and I had to run errands in the morning to avoid the heat. And if it rained, I had to stay home. This went on for 3 weeks.

Maybe now, I can get back to tweaking my meal plans. Have been reading low carb books like crazy trying to get all the nutrition figures correct. I actually have gained back everything I lost, and am trying to get all the nutritional stuff down.

It is alternately gray and cloudy and then briefly sunny here, but it's also sorta warm too. Hard to figure out how to dress for this stuff!

This is the second day this week that I don't have to do anything after work except stuff at home. I am very happy about that. Also get to leave work briefly to run to the bank to sign a wire transfer and am sadly excited about the day trip...

I finally slept really good two nights in a row, so I'm hoping that just doing that regularly will turn my mental state around. I think I really do feel better today. Having burgers planned for dinner is a good thing too!

Busy. That is all.

As I was going to St. Ives,
I met a man with seven wives,
Each wife had seven sacks,
Each sack had seven cats,
Each cat had seven kits:
Kits, cats, sacks, and wives,
How many were there going to St. Ives?

It is actually cool here today. I hope I can take a walk before the rain comes, but for now, James is sound asleep. I need to go to the grocery store, but will wait till tomorrow cause ground beef will be on special.

Nothing like a kitty on the shoulder.

It's only a false economy if you don't actually need it.

Slept like a rock last night, even after taking a nap with the babies yesterday afternoon. I was in my recliner, with a bed table across my legs and my laptop on that, and had four kittens curled up around me on the chair. One of them was even sleeping like a baby on my shoulder!

Bridge this morning, then a session with the woman I'm tutoring in ESL. Should probably go to Walmart or Sams or Aldi while I'm out on that side of town, except I don't really need anything. Going to those cheap places would be a false economy!
