Re: Coffee Klatch
I've been dieting for the past 12 days! I cant take it anymore! I want a big juicy hamburger with fries for dinner and a glass of wine after this week!

LOL

I read a well researched valid scientific assessment of dieting that said people who deny themselves things they crave when dieting should have some of what they want. If they don't, they aren't as likely to stick to the diet and make up for all the goodies they were denied.

Eat that burger and fries Mama. Life is short. Eat that burger and fries. Wish it could be handed to you on a nice tray with a flower and glass of wine. eatcakes

Not sure if you all have seen this.....another pet food recall.

Re: Coffee Klatch
Thanks Nines. It is absolutely a life altering/adjusting experience dealing with the dog. It does make me want to crawl away, but sadly his almost fully blind little self just tries to find me or barks nonstop till I come find him.

The barking isn't something I can tune out like I could my kids when they were little, or threaten and have him stop!

The dog I think takes the biggest toll. I let him fall in the pool purposely hoping that the friendly reminder might keep him away from the edges for a while, but yes its a big concern for me especially since its not my dog and I wouldn't want that to happen on my watch, or any other really just especially not mine. People who have no kids, the dogs are the kids and that is how my daughter is about her dogs.

All the rest is just icing on the cake or more adequately the straw breaking the camels back

Your girls are treasures Mama. It must make you so proud to know how well you've raised them. That is the sweetest thing for her to do and I bet she enjoyed doing it. One of the best gifts a Mom can give her child is the ability to prepare food. A gift that will be with them all their lives. hugs

Re: Coffee Klatch
Mama, was so impressed by your daughter that the dog food recall was overlooked. Now THAT takes some doing. LOL.

Thanks for that link. It's really alarming because those aren't cheap dog foods. It was good of you to post it and might save someone untold heartache. I see people had 900, 1,000, vet bills trying to help pets who'd been affected.

It's hard to know what to do anymore. I make most of my dog food, but do buy some dry. There's a brand called Earthborn Holistic that is U.S. made, has high quality ingredients, is a 4th generation family operation in the Midwest and has never had a recall.

The prices are a lot less than the really expensive foods, but a lot higher for those who feed whatever is on sale or inexpensive. It's around 50.00 for a 28 lb. bag. Might seem high, but compared to what it looks like the vet bills have run, it's cheap.

Re: Coffee Klatch
The strangest thing has happened this morning. I am woken up by a noise like ice from the icemaker going in to a glass when the house I quiet. It keeps going, so I get out of bed to bitch at someone about how much ice one person really needs (sounded like they were filling an ice chest).

Nobody is up, so I think to myself was I dreaming, then the noise starts again only I am standing in the kitchen alone and its not coming from the kitchen. It sounds like its coming from upstairs now, so I go to see what the hell my girls are doing at 8 am that is making all this noise.

The stairs are near my front door which has glass window panes on the upper 3/4 of both doors, they are not one piece of glass, they are more like French doors with the grids 6x8 squares. Anyways,, as I am going to the stairs, a black hawk is on my door step and keeps flying up a few feet to knock on my door with its beak. I thought it was injured so I went to the door and it flew down the walkway and sat and looked at me, all the while squawking to its friends. So I go back inside to have my coffee, and this bird comes back to the door and is doing it again. This has been going on for over 2 hours.

The hawk is my indian guardian, so heads up for me, something is going to happen. Whenever I see hawks I know I am supposed to pay attention.

Well mama, when my daughter came down stairs, she said did anyone else hear the bird banging on my doors, she has French doors in her bdrm, any way, she took video with her phone, it was pecking at her door she said for two hours trying to get in. She had the curtain pulled and he could see her on the other side of the glass and didn't fly away. She works late tonight, but maybe she can email it and I can embed it, Im not that good with that stuff, cause it was incredible. It was either a raven or a crow.

Hers was definite crow or raven, maybe my sighting too as it got me out of bed and the front is east facing and we always are blinded by sun in the am. It was BC (before coffee) but I thought it was brown, could have been black.

Hers is on her iphone and I saw it after coffee, I cant tell the difference between crows and ravens, but all black including beak slightly larger than a pigeon

Re: Coffee Klatch
It is easy Mama but you need a good meat grinder. I use a basic bison, beef, chicken, turkey, run through the grinder, with some boiled egg, vegetables, and flax seed oil. At least once a week, sometimes more, they get some organ meat, like liver, gizzard, heart, etc.

Some people feed raw egg but my vet said to not feed raw egg because it depletes biotin.

Edited to add: Total cereal has great vitamin content and some people add it. I did for my last dog, but Pupster doesn't get any grain.

Oooh, how I like talking dogs, Mama. Don't get me goin'. LOL.

It takes a LOT. I usually make it ahead and freeze it, then thaw out a bag a day. I feed dry too, sometimes. It's getting so scary with buying any now though. Even "good" foods have been/are being recalled. Right now the dry they get is Earthborn because it seems to be a good balanced food and has never had a recall.

A Shepherd eats a lot. Pupster eats approx. 5, 6 cups a day and he's solid muscle.

I gave him a commercial dry food as a pup because those vitamins, minerals, etc. are SO important for their development. You want their bone structure and hip plates to develop right.

I'm so excited for you. You thinking about a pup, or an adult?

Definitely a puppy! We have found a breeder that we are impressed with. My daughters friend has a sheperd from this breeder and highly recommended her. She is on FB and I have been following and watching. She lets you visit, does temeperment test to make sure the right dog goes with the right family. OMG they are such beautiful dogs. We are saving our $$$$$! We usually get a shelter animal, but we all want a German Sheperd and we want a good healthy dog. I am usually leary of going this route....but I think she on the up and up! She also wants recommendations before handing over her furry babies!

Re: Coffee Klatch
I'm so excited for you!! Are they American lines, or German?

You won't regret going to a good breeder. Shelter dogs are often great and I know they too need homes, but when a dog grows old and dies, and you finally recover enough to get another one, there's a lot of comfort in knowing you can have another one "so" close to the one you lost by knowing the bloodlines.

You might want to read up on OFA certification (hips) and research the ratings of your pups parents, grandparents, great grands, and their titles. Time well invested. 8)

You know how "busy" the pups are, right? Any pup is "busy" but a Shepherd pup takes it to a whole new level. Trust me on that one Mama. They don't mature as fast as some either. They're pups for a long time. LOL.

But, after you weather it, you'll look back with a smile. You'll never find a more devoted dog. Bet your dog will never find a more devoted owner either! You going for a male, or female?

Hey, guys. Sorry I haven't been posting when you've all been on. It's been a tough couple of weeks and it's just getting tougher. It's been really good to read y'all's posts. It's nice to know there's a good, "real" world out there right now. Mama, I'm SO glad you have the 2x4's handy!LOL My doom is just compounded family doom. I'm hardly paying attention to the other stuff, except to read it. I leave the forum up while I do stuff in the house.

I just wanted to let y'all know I'm still here, but for now, I'm just reading again. It's hard to type out all the stuff I really wish I could tell you. It's nothing really, really bad, just overwhelming. Besides, if you think my great American novels were long, this stuff would end up being War and Peace! Hubs and I still have the coughing crud and THAT makes things harder to deal with, too. Not enough sleep, too much coughing. They keep saying it's allergies, but it's not. I've had allergies for years and hubs never has. This isn't allergies. We've tried just about everything and nothing's helping. Reading this back, it doesn't make the most sense, but I'm not going to re-type. I hope it makes sense to you.

One thing, guys. Hang on tight to your loved ones. They're being influenced by people that you can do nothing about. If you pray, pray like you've never prayed before for them. If you don't, do what you do. Let them know how much you love them every chance you get. AND...on that note, I'm going back to lurking for now. I love you all very much.

I just wanted to let y'all know I'm still here, but for now, I'm just reading again. It's hard to type out all the stuff I really wish I could tell you. It's nothing really, really bad, just overwhelming. Besides, if you think my great American novels were long, this stuff would end up being War and Peace! Hubs and I still have the coughing crud and THAT makes things harder to deal with, too. Not enough sleep, too much coughing. They keep saying it's allergies, but it's not. I've had allergies for years and hubs never has. This isn't allergies. We've tried just about everything and nothing's helping. Reading this back, it doesn't make the most sense, but I'm not going to re-type. I hope it makes sense to you.

One thing, guys. Hang on tight to your loved ones. They're being influenced by people that you can do nothing about. If you pray, pray like you've never prayed before for them. If you don't, do what you do. Let them know how much you love them every chance you get. AND...on that note, I'm going back to lurking for now. I love you all very much.

I guess you and I are having all the personal doom these days! On another note, is there any mold in the ac system or somewhere in the hotel he works in? Maybe his cough is due to something like that or somewhere else he is at often.

I know a friend who is separated and every time he gets his kid for the weekend, she is congested and green snot, by Sunday she is better. This went on for several months and it was determined that there was mold in the AC ducts at the mothers house, hence every time she went home she got sick again and it would take a day and a half for her symptoms to clear once she was out of the environment.
