My 18 year old dog Sheba passed away 1o/21/11. She had been with me to Grateful Dead shows in Eugene, Portland, and Seattle- a couple The Dead shows- a few Ratdog shows- a Rhythm Devils and a 7 Walkers show- and a Furthur show in Monterrey. Our last road trip after Monterrey was quite special. She lived years longer than I expected and looked good and stayed active right to the end, but it had been getting tough for a while. I'd been up with her since 2 in the morning the day she passed and could tell this was the moment I'd been dreading for a long time, I finally got her to swallow one of her pain pills about 5 am, then at 7am as day was breaking I played her a song on the guitar and while I was still playing she kicked her legs back a couple times like she was making a leap to go join that band of Angels on the other side, then I just held her and she was soon gone. She faced death with courage and strength, just as she lived.
I'm trying to win $1000 in a competition to donate to bushfire victims in Australia. All I need to do is have the biggest group on facebook before feb 15th.

condolence. vibes to stuman and anttheknee...I wish i was there to give you a hug
and condolences to his family.
Our much loved male cat Sixto, a white, gray, black and brown shorthair, with six toes on his paws almost made it to his twentieth year. We had to euthanizie him after he suffered some neural damage and couldn't walk anymore without falling over. I knew he was getting old and had gone deaf but I hoped he would make it through the summer. It was his favorite season. He would pad out to our backyard and sleep under the patio table in the grass. I miss him.
am so sad and angry to hear that-all at the same time! Condolences for your loss, and you ROCK for spreading the word!!
FYI tea balm oil helps against fleas, and it's not poisonous.
I am not young enough to know everything.
DO NOT USE ADAMS FLEA AND TICK PRODUCTS !!! Sorry abt the caps but I am furious abt this stuff ,, it killed one of our cats .. his name was Jerry named after well you know ..

Thank you !!
one bird gathers what another dog spills
The dog is shedding his winter coat right now….a tornado of fine hairs that goes on for 3 months. So we brush him thoroughly twice a day, producing great clumps of fluff. And this year we tried an experiment and have been putting the dog hair in a net bag and hanging it up in a tree. The local birds quickly found it and are now collecting it and using it to line their nests in the nest boxes we put up for them. Neat.
