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

    • Ever notice how the politically bias media does everything it can to keep you voting for one side or another, can't let any 3rd parties in because the powers that be lose control. They are doing an amazing job with our minds that is for sure, both sides.
    • I would regulate the drugs just like alcohol, pretty easy actually. Now we would have to draw a line in the sand on what drugs are legal and which to keep illegal, we can't use public opinion for this because that is what got us in trouble in the first place. There have been numerous studies on drugs that at least give us an idea on how dangerous they are, things will get a little confusing because some legal drugs now are the most dangerous but there is no reason to go backwards with those drugs because we have already been there and it didn't work. I can't possibly cover every detail in a post so I am guessing you want to know which drugs to make legal and which should remain banned.

      Lethal dose chart, one could make a case for drawing a diagonal line to the right of caffeine.


      This chart can be a little deceiving because obviously some drugs that are used more than others but it tells an interesting story none the less.


      Another physical harm chart, these may or may not work but again just a guideline on drugs we could consider for legalization.
    • Anyone have one?  Last year they ran them on sale for $200 at the local farm n fleet.  That happens again i might have to gets me one!
    • Before anyone goes out and buys an ION....     Also Dewalt has a 9ah battery now too.   http://www.homedepot.com/p/DEWALT-FLEXVOLT-20-Volt-60-Volt-Lithium-Ion-9-0-Ahr-Battery-Pack-DCB609Y/300610594?cm_mmc=Shopping|THD|G|0|G-BASE-PLA-D25T-PowerTools|&gclid=CjwKEAiArbrFBRDL4Oiz97GP2nISJAAmJMFah6JUW7Wlbuw6Pzzf6CZFbYHwv3JOUaeQnfyiJpPemhoCm_Xw_wcB&gclsrc=aw.ds

    • So should I get a reality show first? Trust me the two parties are going to great job of taking themselves out. I am also unelectable with the current mindset the voters have so don't worry about me.

      In other news who needs Russia when the DHS is trying to hack our elections? Sure they might have been just been looking for weaknesses but it does seem a little unsettling that the fed wants to get their hands on the state systems.

    • Please describe in detail why the war on drugs has been successful and why we should continue with the same policies we have had for the past 3 decades or so.    I am really wondering what the timeline is for these policies to start working.
    •   If you use Prohibition as an example, speakeasies turned into bars and nightclubs, and bootleggers turned into pimps and politicians.  So that option for drug dealers is still open.   Of course if prostitution was legalized, about the only thing left would be to get into politics, so I guess some of them might have to turn to more honest professions like drug counseling or working for the FDA....   Drug stores could still operate under the eagle eye of the FDA and federal revenuers, and keep us all safe.   The big question is what would all the Carrie Nations of the world do?                                        
    •   The Republican party was originally formed as an opposition party to the Federalists, so now that the DNC and the RNC are both federalists, there is still room for a true republican party.
    • Is it happening this year?
