And next time I'll stay home and set fire to my money...




The youngest pooch hasn't been himself last two days - his appetite way down, eating grass, vomiting a couple of times, seemed constipated.  

Today our usually exuberant pup was so lethargic and heartbreakingly sedentary we took him to the vet to see if he ate something inedible...again.  (We do what we can to keep things out of reach but he has a plastic addiction.)

1.5 hours and $280 dollars later X-rays show no blockage and a clean bill of health.   On the way to the car from the vet...well, let's just say the constipation issue is no more and he's bouncing around like a new puppy in a chew toy factory.  

I guess he thought we had to much money and too much free time so he decided it would be fun to relive us of both and bonus, got a field trip to poop somewhere new!

Seriously,  I'm glad he's okay and always better to be safe than sorry but he couldn't have done that earlier today?

I know that feeling. We've taken our dog to the emergency vet in the middle of the night before only to be told she's fine. I mean...we were happy she was fine, of course. But the bill...ouch.

Lol, wanna hear an embarrassing pet story?  My beloved dog went suddenly lame, was holding up her front paw, wouldn't put it down at all.  I panicked, thinking of our trip away at 6am the next day (mr karma wasn't going, but would be at work all day, so maggie would be alone a lot).  I couldn't go if she was injured, had dislocated her shoulder or something.  I rushed her to the after hours vet, who came out in her pjs, examined her leg, then .... unclipped her collar, which some of her leg hair had got caught in....

I was so embarrassed.  Amazingly, the vet didn't charge me anything.  I think she figured she could tell the tale of the most stupid panicked dog owner ever so many times that it was worth the free consult.

I read this as "in the car from the vet" so I'm glad I read that wrong. And glad he's okay :)

Was reminiscing just last night about pretty much the same thing happening with our Husky.  (Find the bag, eat the bag, mope around not eating for a couple of days, xrays at the vet inconclusive,  plastic poop on arrival home from vet. Argh)   The vet said it was fairly typical.  Plastic doesn't show up well on the xrays  and the stuff they gave her to increase the contrast, coupled with the vets poking and prodding is often enough to move things along. Glad your dog was fine in the end. (No pun intended)     Mine continued on to a long career of eating weird stuff (brilló pads were a particular favourite) with no noticeable  damage,   except to our sanity and wallets.

      I think he’s barking up the wrong tree. This is a small town and many people offer to help with all sorts of things but most people suggested therapy and respite care through insurance and he didn’t get anything but likes and one suggestion of someone’s car dealership contact for the 15 person passenger van request. he also posted about looking for odd jobs… can’t figure out if he works a full time job or what 🤷🏻‍♀️

      Where I life the county mental health provide some respite services for a child with an autism diagnosis. He should start at the department of aging to register his child.

      February is about to begin, and I have one wish. I want Gary to post complaining about how people care more about the "Supper Bowel" than they do about God and hell.

      You have twelve days, Gary. Pretty please?

      I think she's keeping wall up because she sees us as possibly wanting to take away her faith. Which she is very protective of. So she's a bit cautious about us.

      When I was first really starting my recovery/deprogramming there were a lot of people who wanted me to abandon faith altogether. Friends, a therapist, internet strangers. It didn’t matter that it ultimately wasn’t a solution for a number of reasons, it felt like an easy answer for people. There are plenty of reasons why people don’t believe, or choose to stop believing. I have my reasons for maintaining my faith. I don’t feel the need to advertise or “recruit” but there are some nonbelievers that use the same tactics they shame religious people for. 

      I’ve gotten pretty used to ignoring certain topics/posters/discussions around here. But there are definitely moments that are really uncomfortable. Part of why I post so irregularly.

      I read the book. TL, DR: Gothard is a creep and a false prophet. The one anecdote that I found surprising was that the older Duggar girls once were hanging around at the mall and they tried on a blond wig and said “You’re ready for headquarters!” meaning that Gothard would find it hot 🤢

      The fact that literally everyone knew Gothard’s type and did fuck all about it is so typical but still so disturbing.
