I hope I didn't offend anyone with my fork tirade. My dog died yesterday and I drank too much last night. Nothing worse than drunken posting.

My girls and I are very sad. He was a great dog. :frown:

The fruit bat is my older daughter's and he is still here. JOD is a freak of nature, not a dog. :surprised

This was Kevin, our "actual" dog. (I live on an acre of land). He was a Brittany Spaniel and the sweetest, most loving dog ever. He always carried a stuffed animal with him where ever he went, we called them his "babies". His nickname was "the love dog".

I'm still crying.

Now I have the fruit bat, which I do love, and JOD. Not sure what to do with her (JOD), Kevin loved her for some unknown reason, which is why she is still here. Two vets said she had "serious issues". Yeah, no kidding. She's the JAWS OF DEATH.

I am very sorry to hear about Kevin. May his spirit be at peace. o:)

I too have been very close to all the animals who share our house, and it is very painful when they die. My condolences to you and your girls. :frown:

Thank you, it's almost like losing a family member. The child of evo was saying how she can't really remember him not being around, she was little when she picked him out.

The year my brother died, we euthenized our two oldest cats, on two successive days. The oldest was a Calico, Pumpkin, who we had since the first year my wife and I were married. We got her as an abandoned kitten. The other was, Spencer, an orange tiger striped cat. He was also abandoned, and came to us two years after Pumpkin. Our oldest dog, Ellie, died the following year. She was a mixed breed terrier.

During August of last year, I had to euthenize another cat, a mostly black tortoise shell, Pepper, who had been with us 17 years.

Now we have two cats (Chester and Misty), a dog (Yorkie named Sassie), and a parakeet (Peter). :biggrin:

Heh, sorry for prying. It just seems like rules such as your "Fork Test" are a sure fire way to end up as a lonely cat lady. I have a test too, it's called the "Nitpicking About Inconsequential Details That Don't Mean A Hill Of Beans In Life Test". :biggrin: If a lady fails that one, then she gets kicked to the curb.
Oh goody, I'm not eliminated yet. :biggrin:

Oh, so sorry to hear this. The furry ones are the hardest to lose. (I'd probably have something better to say if I wasn't so drunk the screen is moving!)

What's with everyone being drunk all of a sudden? Or have I just not been paying attention until now?

I love math and logic, yes. And that was a perfectly sound series of experiments. :redface: (Actually, they are ongoing, but keep it on the DL.)

Matt is great, but my -strictly scientific- fascination is with his peculiar behavior, not with him per se.

Her avatar is her daughter. Oh, and :grumpy: Where's Astronuc when you need him?

No, but I don't think I should say anything else about him - people might start getting ideas.

I can't speak for Evo, but I'm at a conference, so it's just the normal evening socializing. Actually, last night we had our annual N.A.K.E.D. party. :biggrin






















(That stands for National Association for Knowledge, Education and Drunkenness; sorry, nobody actually gets naked, at least not until after they leave the party.)

A naked party? That sounds like a lot of fun, Moonbear. In which direction is it good manners to look at this sort of party?
