    The puppy got me up @ 4 (he's big enough to get on the bed now). The 26 year old saddlebred has been sneezing ever since. The cats almost got ahold of one of the budgies. The Pigmy Nuthatches have been pounding on the side of the house all day. Two visits from the vet so far. Just got off the phone with him. It's almost midnight, again. My girls seem like the only animals here who don't require 24/7 attention. Here come the coyotes looking for the turkeys who couldn't make it to the trees. Everyone knows sleep causes cancer, right?

    And I thought me having to deal with the sniffles was bad enough... [​IMG]

    I think I've got quite a similar experience, except there's little to no vet involved. My last straw with our local vets was just after our last horse died.

    Thanks. It's been awhile since I've been on. It is crazy over here, but at least it's never boring. What do you do when when your favorite saddlebred is dying? Rent a backhoe? No, I'm serious. The ladies have slowed down (eggs that is), must be the cold. It's snowing in the rockies and there was 3" of rain here yesterday on the Palmer Divide. Thank you for your support. Preston

    I have a tractor but there's no way I could bury Cheers. He's been around for 26 years. He's not dead yet, but not even the vet knows what to do with him. Live? Suffer? He was neglected when we got him and went on to become a world champion in 5 gaited pleasure class. Then he took under-privelaged kids on trail rides. Now he's dying. I'm a grown man who is writing this with tears in my eyes. I love my animals. All of them. That's why I don't eat chickens, budgies, dogs, cats, turkeys, or horses.
