How deep?

7 posts in this topic

Ang's lab Norm died last night. How deep does the hole have to be to avoid problems?

I just buried my 11 year old shorthair on Friday. I'd say the hole was about 2.5 feet deep. Bring tissues...the digging is the worst part.

That's about where we ended up. I was lucky enough to have a hill of pure sand so it wasn't hard, but a lot of work.

The worse part was watching Ang stand there crying and hoping no one would notice me doing the same.

Norm had a heaert murmur from birth. The vet told her he would only last 3-4 years and the breeder offered to take him back. That was out of the question after about the first 5 minutes she owned him. About the first of the year he filled up with fluid. The U cost over $1600 and really said other than a very expensive pacemaker there was nothing to be done. Meds worked for a while. On Friday he seemed OK when he was at my house, but he just collapsed and died early Saturday morning. It was really tough dealing with it as he was Ang's best friend.

The breeder quickly offered a replacement dog and I thought that was an incredibly generous offer. Ang is going to take some time off from dog ownership so she can pay off some bills. She's learned that even a free dog isn't really free.

I am so sorry for the loss. There is nothing I can say to make the loss easy. My dogs along with my Wife are my life. I am sure Norm was the same to you and Ang. I send my thoughts and prayers to you from one FMer to another. It is a sad time. Take Care Dave

    • I think it's called "Putting America to Work".    And it's a part time job on the same order as getting paid to applaud.     Looks like an easy job that would allow some time for fishing on the side.  Where do I sign up?
    • It's used in most enclosed trailers now but being uncovered would be my concern, treated won't react with the aluminum in a negative way ?
    • Nah...   You won't get an answer from the lefties on that one.   Nor will you get an answer as to why the lefty hate mongers break windows, burn cars, beat people, throw rocks and bottles at police all weekend long exercising their so called "right" to peaceful protest...   And the women's march ??     MC maddona..(who does not reside in America) takes the cake (pun intended) with three f' enhiemers and a threat to blow up the white house...   Frauds and Losers ....        
    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
