    Bodie is going tomorrow for his TPLO. I am nervous, but I always get nervous about this kind of situation. I just hope I have done the appropriate measures for him, rehab, etc. Keeping my fingers crossed all goes well!

    Can't get him into the car

    Here we go again. Bodie does not want to get into the car. Unfortunately, he needs cruciate surgery. I will have a consultation w/ortho vet 12/06. I am already driving myself nuts. I am sure he will need some extensive PT. How often do you bother the neighbor. I have used "high value"...

    Removal of clipper blades

    Jeannie, I have been trying to pm you. However, since I am so bad on this machine, I don't think they went through. I need to ask you how to get the blades off the Oster A5 clippers. I depress the latch forward. When removing, do the blades go away from the latch or back over the top of the...

    Is there a sticky on vacuums? Anyway, I need a machine for the upstairs. The central vac I have is a royal pain in the backside to haul upstairs. Obviously, I need one that is somewhat impervious to the fur getting caught in the rollers. Any suggestions, ideas? TIA,

    Cleaning up, help!

    Late this afternoon, I realized that my Bodie had diarrhea and he urinated also on the carpet. I don't have a rug cleaning machine. Are there some household products that I may have on hand until I can get out and purchase some other type of cleaning solution? I have lifted as much of the...

    Help with computer programs, please!

    I am sooo bad on this machine, that there isn't anyone who would hire me for my computer skills, because I have none! I am doing the mailing list for Newfie Fun Days, September 19th and 20th, at Piscataqua Boat Basin, Eliot, Maine. Now, I have done this before, but it doesn't mean I can...

    I had to let my boy go yesterday. He was 11 1/2 yo., and had spinal problems and lar par. Every month he would get chiropractic and actually was managing pretty well. On Monday, he couldn't get up the stairs and the lar par kicked in with the heavy breathing and was in serious distress...

    Do you operate on...

    an 11 1/2 year newf for disc problems. He also has lar par. I do have insurance, but unfortunately, he has pre-existing spinal and hip problems, so they will not pay. Thoughts, please? Any help will be appreciated!
