You did right by him, though itís such a tough call to make. Hugs to you and your family as you say farewell to your steadfast friend. X

*hugs* You did right by him my friend. It's one of the most important duties we have towards our four legged family members.

It's heartbreaking though.

Probably Cannon Beach....

We'll be putting him in the ground later. It's raining steadily which will provide excellent cover for our tears.
Oh, man.

My thoughts are with you and your family today, V. Saying goodbye to one of your best friends is such a hard thing to do . . .

Drat, my mascara is running. Must be all the dust....

I feel for you. I always hate putting down a close friend. Dogs have a way of getting into your heart like nothing else.

I'm sending prayers to you today.

It is hard to do, even knowing it is absolutely the best thing.

My big, black, beautiful, Bombay boy, Slick will be gone three years next month.

Still gets me.

Beest is in the hospital again. think it's pretty minor in the scheme of things but they don't like to take any chances. And it's been a hideous 8 hours fighting for common sense (we won) I just got home, it's 3am, my alarm goes off in an hour.... trying to email the stupid school to explain why thunderboy will be late, stupid email not stupid working.

it's lonely without my partner in crime

that sucks Monster

Makes my reason for being upset seem trivial. Which is probably no bad thing.

Went in to work today to discover that, because the higher ups made some flawed decisions on risk and because they underestimated claim costs for escape of water claims the UK division has large underwriting losses this year. The company as a whole is doing great - record sales figures for new business, great results from the home, motor and pet claims teams - great performance from the overseas teams - share prices at record high - but most stuff gets underwritten by the UK division (things like the hurricane damage in the US and Caribbean) so the losses in the UK underwriting are substantial.

So we're not getting our annual bonus. So the £600 bonus I was expecting next month is not happening.


Now that's a hell of birthday present for tomorrow.

So you aren't getting a bonus in part because people in Houston built houses inside of reservoirs and were surprised when they flooded.
