Ohh, I missed this post. Yes, I did get the other survey. I guess we all had the same complaint on the first one!

I think it will be interesting to see if any changes are made to the 2nd ABD/BM trip next week. I am SURE Pete will let us all know if there are any changes for his 2nd trip!

As Bill mentioned, we had to put our DISdog (JJ) to sleep this past Friday. It was hard. But, he is not suffering any longer. We got a call from my Mom while on the ABD trip that JJ was not himself. So, I had her bring him to the vet until we got back. He checked out fine and they sent him home with me. However, a few weeks later he started having seizures. Reluctantly, we put him on phenobarbital (anti-seizure medicine). Even on the medicine, he had seizures. Within the past week he took a turn for the worst. He could barely walk and yelped in pain. He would look up at us with those sad eyes and I knew he was in pain. Selfishly, I kept him alive three weeks longer than I should have. It was hard to seem him deteriorate so quickly. It does give us comfort knowing he is no longer in pain.

We miss you buddy!

Please accept my deepest sympathy in this time of grieving for your truest of friends and best of companions. I can imagine how much you miss his sweet spirit. It is good to think of him running free and happy in his new world where the silo feeder is always full and he has a ball machine with his name on it, but I know how his departure leaves a big ol' hole in your lives. I love his tribute in your signature, and seeing a little bit of all the love you shared.

Jennifer and Bill,

I can't add anything to Heather's eloquent comment on the loss of your family's companion. Our thoughts are with you.

It's not the pace of life than concerns me... it's the sudden stop at the end.

Thank you for all your posts about JJ.

It is weird not having him around. He would always greet us when we got home or snuggle in bed between Bill and I. He was like a fourth child. It has been a hard adjustment.

Thank you again!

Jennifer

Lauren,

Thank you for posting all your great scrapbook pages. You do wonderful and creative work! I still haven't even started my scrapbooking for our trip. I keep forgetting to get new color ink for our printer. I like to do the old-fashioned paper scrapbooks. Bill looked into digital scrapbooking software for me though.

On the trip, we were talking about cameras. I had a birthday this past Sunday and guess what Bill got me?????

A New Camera!!!!!

He said it is 10 times better than the one I have. But, still small enough for me to handle it.

Old Camera


New Camera


(My Mom sent me the Edible Arrangements bouquet for my birthday. The fruit tastes as good as it looks. Yummy!)

Can you tell the difference?

My new camera is a Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-HX5V I plan to take a one-day class at the Sony store to learn all the buttons and effects. I want to be a pro on it by our December PCC 2.0 trip. I already told Bill, I might go off on my own one day while at WDW just to take pictures.

Thank you Bill!!!!!

Jennifer

Thanks! I've only got eight layouts to go before the final tweaking, journaling starts. Then I'll have to rest up for 2.0!

Please send some good thoughts our way, I know Chris would appreciate them!!
Chris & Tracey, you are in my thoughts and prayers - deepest sympathies. Your family is lucky to have you close by during this time.

Sorry for the delayed response - I haven't been on the Disboards for the past week.

cheers,

The only difference is she only has to look at the treat bag to get about ten of them! She's gained all her weight back that she had lost. Hey, why watch your weight now, kwim? 13 years we've all been together. It's still not enough.

Lauren & Jeri, Bill & Jennifer - so sorry to hear about your furbabies. They are lucky to have been loved and cared for by your families.
