Mallet, hope your pet is doing better. My little sweet heart started with the infection and her little body couldn't take it anymore... I'll never forget when I saw her for the last time, alive and then in the Eternal sleep and I regret have seen her. Cheez Soos, it brings tears to my eyes again.

You take care of her and make it as comfortable as you can and if she's not fixed/neutered, do it as soon as the antibiotics do the job. Seems like they develop very serious disease when not fixed and fortunately the male one was fixed three or four years ago.

Pyometra, vaginitis and many other infections are very difficult to deal with, but if she's having discharges, is unusually quite, urinating frequently and showing signs of difficulty urinating, drinking water more than regular, refusing foods or finicky eating, you are up for a big fight. Sometimes we forget that this creatures have to body of a baby and others, just a bit larger than a bird, therefore, we have to take extra care.

A good sign, an advanced one, that they are suffering even when not showing obvious symptoms, is that the dog will stop doing things s/he regularly do, like jumping, standing long time, laying flat on the belly. And another symptom of an infection of the uterus is the nipple discharge that can be confused with a psychological pregnancy.

Probably you know all of this, but it's a bit of therapy helping others, and alleviates the pain and suffering.

Good luck and keep us posted.

Morning All..

Not a bad morning out here, little to no breeze, but overcast.


She's a pretty tough old girl, going on 14/5 years now. She has had diabetes now for 4 years and gets two shots daily but apart from a bladder infection some years ago she has been pretty healthy. we lost her sister 3 years ago, very sad end, she started to have convulsions, on a long weekend, and could not get a vet to see her. The answers I got was "Okay bring her in in the morning" unfortunately she did not last that long and died overnite. It looked like an epilepsy sizure that finished her.. Anyway thanks for the coffee...

You all have a great day out there...

Mallet...I noticed in the other room you mentioned being a millwright. Myself as well, mostly pulp and paper/saw mills and grain elevators up north. Totally agree with earning you pay for your job. I can relate.Nothing like stuffing yourself into a dryer can or changing mains on a brown stock washer! Too bad most kids now can't even stand dirt under their nails!

I was in steel and mining, spent nearly 14 years at the tube mill and plant and ended up with 10 pension years then went to mining Gold and then Nickel and Copper at inco. travelled a bit between layoffs, up to Baffin Island that was lead and zinc and then some heavy duty mechanicing in North Africa. Kids today do not know what is out there as the majority sit and play video games at home and hope if they finish High School mom and dad and the government will pay for them to go to univeristy and then a high paying job at.... er umm yeah... but get your hands dirty and muck under the finger nails... NOOOOOOooooooo that does not sound very attractive and might break a nail... I had the chance, I was up at Cambridge for a semester, too stuck up for me, dumped my forces demit and did a few years in the RAF Regiment and then a few jobs in the UK and then came to Canada and been here just about half my life now... I could never afford to live where I am in the UK, beside a lake...

Your comment about living half your life in Canada caused a memory bell to ring Thirty four years ago just about now, I was pulling into SSM to start a new job. As I drove down Queen St. on a dreary Feb 4th 1980, I wondered if I had made a major mistake. I consoled myself with the thought that it had to better than my departure point which was Kenora.

Thirty four years later (having now lived exactly half my life in SSM) I am very happy with my decision

Evening Friends... Bobby.. aww , you have such a big and loving heart, your words about your little girl showed this. Love like that is few and far between,, .... The pain does go away, but the memories are there to stay and all it takes is the thought, and the tears will flow, bless you..... MALLET.. me Dad was a miner.. he srarted out in B.C..
