Enjoyed meeting you and Blackie, too, Mimi.

Interesting to watch our two dogs interact so aggressively, tho never touching the other.

I crocheted, fiddled and read away the afternoon, and was down to bed early...for me.

Slept like the dead...sometimes, it just catches up with you.

Going to head for the 24- hour laundry as soon as it is light...

Hi Maggie! I'm enjoying your trip immensely!

Thank you, Mimi, for the recipe! My family will love it! Our children are Hispanic (Myan Indians from Guatemala -- we adopted, of course, but we forget that fact most of the time, they're just a part of us! They are 38 and 31 yrs., where has the time gone?!).

Not to hijack your thread, but I would greatly appreciate some information from you and/or Bud.......our Cooper, 4 1/2yr. old Goldendoodle came down ill and I need to feed him chicken and rice for a few days. Do you use dark meat or white, do you use brown rice or white, and do you mix in anything else? Thanks so much!

We took him to doggie daycare last Saturday; Sunday evening he began sneezing. I kept thinking he would get better, but yesterday it seemed he took a severe turn for the worse I noticed he wasn't eating, last evening he started coughing, and wouldn't go out to potty at bedtime. I got up at about 3 am to check on him and take him out, I noticed he was wheezing after getting his 1/2 treat from pottying, I panicked. Yesterday, I got prepared just in case and asked the manager for the name of a good vet. I called that number and the recording (3:30am) gave the name of an animal hospital about 30 mins. from here, so we loaded him up and I drove him there. The vet prescribed antibiotics for one week and "chicken/rice" for several days. She thinks he has kennel cough but since he had been vaccinated for it, it shouldn't be as severe. He also had an elevated temp and sore throat. Could have gone into flu and dogs can get pneumonia, and he'd lost 6 lbs! He is down to 80 lbs.

Thank you both.

Deb

Also, not to hijack Maggie's thread, but I'd advise you to watch Cooper carefully and get in touch with a vet if he doesn't improve quickly. From what I've heard, this dog flu can be nasty, even when the animal is hospitalized and getting the best of care. I'll help you pray it's just kennel cough.

There is a dog flu vaccine now, and Blackie has had two doses of it, recommended by our new vet.

Thank you Mimi! I am definitely keeping an eye on him, he's just been laying around all day sleeping. Since there is a vaccine out there for dog flu, I would imagine he has had it, but I plan to call our vet at home to make certain. Driving for 30 minutes, just Cooper and me, in a strange environment at around 4am was a little unsettling, but I did it and got him to a vet.

Thank you also for the prayers -- I'd be lost without Coop!

Hope Cooper is better soon....and dog talk is fine here anytime.

Lily had kennel cough. I caught it early because had been told to watch for it, but she was still pretty sick and it was a couple of weeks before she was really back to normal.

Have spent a nice afternoon with Brent & Connie, and they took us on a drive to one of their favorite spots....Crazy Woman Canyon, thru which runs Crazy Woman Creek.

Beautiful, will post a pic or two tomorrow. I was up early and am tired.

Deb;.

White meat, cooked well and strained, no canned chicken. White rice, NO treats, nothing else at all except water. Best no food first day.

Kennel cough with antibiotics should start to clear up after a couple of days. It's very seldom serious and in most dogs clears up on its own, but it is troublesome and in some can get worse.

Maggie and Bud, thank you so much for the info on the chicken and rice dinner. Cooper is such a babe and depends upon us for his well being, and I do the very best I can. He is still laying around much of the time, but last night for a few minutes he picked up one if his balls and played with it -- that was a great sight!

Maggie, wonderful pictures, the first one I saw Lily off in the distance, so when looking at the second I studied it well looking for her there too (almost like a "Where's Waldo"), fun! You are so fortunate to have these wonderful adventures to be enjoying!

Deb

Brent replaced and re-attached a cabinet piece for me this morning, helped me fill my fresh water tank, and diagnosed the noise I have heard when braking as worn brake pads on the passenger side.

Such nice people, on the Quemado trip last year. I have really enjoyed getting to know them a bit better.

Having just had new tires and a full service 6 weeks ago, how was this missed. Cummins Crosspoint listed on their checklist that the brake shoes were at 50-60%.

Currently at Meineke in Casper, who show me two brake whatever's with no brake pads whatsoever...both on the passenger side, one front and one rear.

Something amiss with the parking brakes, as well.

I want to run screaming into the night....but I am not.

Sorry to hear that about your brakes, I hope it was caught before it got into the rotors.

I meant to also say that if it hasn't gotten into the rotors too far, they can be turned and still used. A benefit of this is not only saving some $$, but the OEM rotors are usually better quality than new ones. However, sometimes the gouges are too deep and you must purchase new rotors. In that case, we normally try to purchase them at NAPA as we feel they are a better quality. However, you may not get to choose where they are coming from if an individual is not doing the work for you.
