This picture of Laddie Boy waiting for his master is so touching. For those who don't know, he was President Warren G. Harding's Airdale Terrier. Harding died August 2, 1923 while on a trip to San Francisco.
Oh no, DIL is showing the first signs of preeclampsia at 33 weeks pregnant. Although we were prepared that it could happen again, it still comes as a shock. Thankfully she is farther along than she was when she had an emergency c-section at 29 weeks with her first pregnancy, but still... Anxious times ahead.
I'm thinking the next pet will be a mutt. So tired of learning about all the genetic issues my menagerie has suffered from. First the corgi with hip dysplasia and now the Manx with his painful hindquarters/spine. Poor guys. And the bird that literally doesn't exist in nature who spends his days yelling at the neighbors for daring to walk on "his" street.
Or we'll get a Dalmatian. no one ever has problems with spotted dogs, right? /s
