Jesse, I hope everything works out okay.

Glad to hear she's ok, Rob!

Thanks Matt.

For the record, if your (your as in, anyone's) dog over-eats it's probably a good idea to get them looked at.  Bad things can happen if the food hardens in their stomachs.  It can be very serious and even fatal.

Indeed on overeating...  Especially with dogs.  They're instinct is sometimes to eat till they're ill because of food not being readily available to them, or so I hear.  Why cats don't do that, I don't know, but I've heard a lot of dogs will.  I think my lab would considering how she begs 24/7.

And thanks Rob...  I'm concerned.  If it's not one thing it's another it seems, and this is bothering me greatly.

Rob - glad to hear that the pups are okay - those little rascals can get into a lot of trouble and cause a world of worry.

Jesse - sorry to hear about Tarkin.  I remember how hard it was when Hannah, my pug started getting older and things started going wrong with her little by little.  You worry over them and feel so bad for them.


When Hannah and her litter-mate Dudley were still quite small, my mom came to visit with Dudley.  I also had a black lab at the time who are gravy train.  We go to missing Dudley and found him buried deep inside the bag of Brownie's food.  We laughed and thought nothing of it and took the pups to a pet supply store.  My mom held the puppies in her lap on the short ride there.  Needless to say, Dudley started getting sick all over my mom and Hannah.  The thing is, when a dog eats Gravy Train dry, and then throws it back up, it makes gravy. :o

Sorry to hear about Tarkin. I have a 17 year old cat who is in really good health other than he has gotten skinny over the years. I dread the day that changes.

I wanted to name our younger cat Wilhuff but my wife wouldn't let me so now he's Grand Moff Howie. Needless to say she calls him just Howie.

Wilhuff is a good one Nick, I like it.  I may borrow that for another cat someday.  I have Ozzel, Tarkin, Chaos, and Bob (female, but she doesn't have a tail, so she's "Bobcat" but we all call her Bob).  Then there's Yellow Dog.

They are adorable!  I love boxers - have always heard great things about them - namely that they are nothing but big babies.  What are their names?

Awww!  Boxers are great dogs!  Have fun with them!

Jesse,

Sorry to hear Tarkin's not doing so well.  Older cats do tend to develop kidney problems, but hopefully it can be treated easily with medication.
Peacekeeper, when it absolutely, positively has to be nuked in 30 minutes or less.  Or the next nuke's free!

Unless the vet says something we really aren't expecting to hear it looks like I'll be getting one of my rats euthanized tonight.

Rats are like little dogs which is cool, but they are like little dogs that only live three years which is not cool.

Got another rat yesterday. His name is IG88 or Iggy for short (and my wife's sake).

Happy to hear you got another Rat Nick!  Ish though - closest I came were 2 hampsters I got when I was 10 or 11.  Those things went to town and I soon had an entire city of those suckers.  They always peed & poo'd in those clear hampster balls though.  Ruined the experience.
