Molly's buddy was put down last wknd!

8 posts in this topic

Sad to say we put down our "old girl" last wknd. Abbey has been a great dog and dear family member for almost 14 years. The picture is a photo of a picture (sorry for the quality-not the best, but it was a special day and the only pic I had). It's the first rooster my son shot over Abbey.

Boy, it was a tough day, our family gave hugs and kisses to Abbey and shed a lot of tears over the decision. In my heart, I knew it was time, but what a tough call! Molly sure misses her-as do we all. Bye, "old girl", thanks for the memories!

That's tough to hear, it always makes me think back to putting down my first 2 labs. Although it does get easier with time, there will always be an area, sound, smell or bird that will bring the good memories flooding back. Sorry to hear about one of your family.

Hey Bill, I'm really sorry to hear about Abbey. I've never been through that myself so I can only imagine how tough it is. It sounds like you have a lot of great memories, and one AWESOME picture!

Molly will be the better of a dog after spending her brief year wih Abbey. There is something about a young dog learning a little bit of the 'ropes' of life from a grizzled old veteran.

Hold on to all those memories, for when they are in your heart and mind, and burn in your soul, Abbey will never truley leave your side.

Godspeed Abbey!

Good Luck!

Ken

Never easy. But comes a time when it's the right thing to do. Courage is a natural for the dogs, sometimes we humans have to work at it a bit.

Your life is that much more rich due to her life. Consider yourself a lucky man - we all are when our dogs come into the picture.

    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less.
