:) I'm sure that Venus and Dinah are having fun. I'm very sensitive to things like that. It's funny. When Dinah died I was there with her. She waited for me to get home from work. And I held her and cried when she passed over the Bridge. I felt her trying to stay. I told her to go, it was OK. I have had this experience now 4 times. It happened at first with my family's 3 labs when I went with my Dad to put them down. I knew before the vet told us they were gone that they were gone. My dad is sensitive too, but not as sensitive as me. I held each dog's head in my arms when they left. Too me that was a bittersweet moment for me. It felt good to be there to tell them goodbye, but at the same time I felt like I had lost a child. I still miss them so much.

I'm like you. I cry very easily if an animal is hurt or a friend very sick. Tookat says I am an empath. I think I am in training for it. It's in complete contrast to my normally sarcastic self, but that's the way it is. Just because I am sarcastic and prefer that type of wit doesn't mean I don't have a heart.

I'm from Missouri mostly but I lived in Idaho 6 years. I just ax people that send too much stuff to my dashboard that I don't like... it hurts my numbers, but I don't do this for numbers. I just like to make people laugh and smile. Most of my stuff I repost someplace else because a lot of it I do for other people that have a picture of a pet or a horse they want to have captioned and they seem to like the way I see things in animals. I usually try to let the animals expression/body language tell the story. If I try to force one or caption everything I see they just don't come across as funny to me.

It was truly, truly sad. Little Dexter fought so long but he had some sores that just would not heal and he got weaker and weaker. There is a site, or there used to be called Dexter's Coalition. It tells the whole story, but don't go there if you cry easily. I do. It took about a year for this to finally get sentencing. She denies it although a little 7 year old boy went crying to his mother about her hitting the kittens. Why, is beyond me.

Yes, this was a story that gripped us all as they tried to save a terribly beaten Dexter. Gabe, his brother, was beaten to death. We threw a Paintblol event and made Dexter our mascot. Unfortunately, at the end of it he died. They has been beaten to death and it was witnessed

I live in my truck in the parking lot of a shopping center. I get internet on my laptop via several stores here that provide wireless for free. Food is plentiful via dumpsters at several fast food places. The only thing I worry about are the big storms here in SE Louisiana. It never really gets too cold here for someone from the north like I am . To be honest, I just sent a FRQ to luvmy8catz because I saw her LOL about sending the F word to her dashboard and figured she would be safe to add as a friend. I have favored a very few of those but not many and only because it seem an appropriate time to use it. later... huey...

Hi Deb, I don't mind your long message at all. It's fun reading! Sounds like you have two amazing boys. A Harvard grad... wow, IMPRESSIVE! My hubby retired as an ATC after nearly 30 years. He got out about 2-1/2 years after the 9/11 incident. By that time his facility became a non government facility, and things were just going downhill, so he got out at the right time. I actually met him when I was only 18, he even took me for an airplane ride as a first date, as he was in the service at the time and flew planes and helicopters. (he's proud of that!) Remind me to tell you that story later! I ended up marrying him many years later.... he married someone else in between. No kids, but in the beginning we had five cats! All have crossed the bridge of course, now we have Roxie, a 5 year old Bengal cat, and Romeo, a 4 year old Siamese, who is nothing but a clown in a cat suit! Sorry about your disabilities. So much fun getting old.... NOT! I get to have that 10 year procedure next week, UGH! I'll be glad when that's over. But I've been lucky, except for some joint problems. (and bursitis in my hip!) Am trying to lose a little weight so I won't aggregate it too much. I'll lose some next week for sure, LOL!! Actually had it done 3 years ago. I love the way you express yourself. "Second scumbag got a male..." LOL!! So sorry you lost your one little Doxie. It's hard enough to go through a natural death, that had to be hard!! Yes, cats are pretty special, you just have to get to know them! I get a LOT of cats with doing pet sitting, more than dogs! I love my job, the only bad part is I can get really attached, only to have a client tell me they had to put their animal down, somewhere down the road. That is always hard, because 'I' fall in love with their pets too! My best client recently announced she had to put her cat down. I cried off and on that entire day! But then she adopted a little cutie from our shelter, and she is so funny, she makes us laugh. Anyway, it's great getting to know you, and I am with you, I hate bad language! Like my Mother used to say, you can get your point across without that kind of language. Both my parents are gone now. Do you have yours yet? Okay, I'm leaving now, LOL!! Take care, Mary Jo

Of course we're supposed to spoil them - but if I keep giving into Mrs. Norris's demands for treats at all hours of the day and night, how am I going to explain to the vet why she's 30 pounds of fun? I COULD blame her thyroid.... she's already on Tapazole... we could say it's working too well... but then there's the bloodwork... Oh well, I'll just have to keep thinking - CHILL

Hi Deb, and thank you for signing your name! Always seems more personal when there is a real name behind a message. And thank you for the nice message. Such fun reading material!! Had to read that to my hubby, he almost broke my ear drum in laughter, after reading the part about your ex and his job. He got a kick out of it when you added 'dummy', then went on for the next 10 minutes explaining to me about the controllers incident. (snore) He said that was probably the reason you divorced him. I said, "How do YOU know! You don't even KNOW these people!!" Men! Anyway, I am so happy to meet you! And you have/had a Doxie? They are so cute and so funny! One of my clients had one, and if you would point your finger at him and say BANG, he would fall over! Too funny! I LOVE cat speak on LOL's, if it's not too much. To me, you have to be able to read it fairly quickly to enjoy it and understand it. Too much work when every word is cat speak. As far as messages go, it's not fun to me getting to know someone if I have to sit and figure out what they are trying to tell me! I love e-mail and messages here, but I am not a big book reader, so when I DO read, I like to zip through it, instead of having to 'study' it. (Plus a lot of people choose the wrong letters and it's hard to read anyway) I'm not picky, LOL!! So, do you work? Are you remarried? Have kids? This is my first marriage, made it to 20 years! I'm hubby's 2nd. He saved the best for last, LOL!! So nice to meet you! -Mary Jo
