Default Hi

Geez Grady that would be horrible. I do not know of anyone who is allerigic to animals. Lucky, I guess I love baby animals they are sooo cute. My grandparents did not have cats while I was groein up. The only cats that I associated with were the cats/kittens on my aunts dairy farm. Wild little boogs they were.

Work2bfree- I had major back surgery almost 2 years ago and am still fighting the pain. I am not one to take pain meds unless it becomes to intense. I am however glad that I had surgery because it not, I would not have use of my left leg. Now I do, but still have weakness in the leg (but useable) and have numbness in some areas of the leg. Nerve damage I guess. I am just thankful that the pain is not like what it was before surgery. I just have major limitations that kills me when I want to go and be active. UGHHH!!

Take care

Hi SweetestMiracle,
It is good that the surgery helped for you; that it brought you some relief. I work with a lady who is having significant neck and back problems stemming from a car accident she had some years ago.

She goes to a therapist and chiropractor often. She can barely turn her neck. I think at one point she said that her doctor recommended surgery for her, but for some reason, she said no. So, she continues to go to her doctors often, but the results don't even last a week. I feel her pain because I remember the days I suffered from those back pains. Extremely painful...

Default Hi

I know we are totally off topic here, but has your friend tried acupuncture? I was so amazed with the results. I went and had this procedure done 4 months after surgery. I had treatment during spring break, and after 4 sessions I was doing my spring cleaning. I kid you not. They say they can decrease your pain up to 80%, and boy howdy did she. I would like to start it again but my insurance has changed and it will cost more out of pocket, which I can't afford at the moment. Needles sound scary, but it is so different when you have it done. Have her check into this, it may help her.

Tell you friend I wish her well and give acupuncture a try.

Take care work2bfree

You can tell by my bio, that I am the proud mommy to two beautiful German Shepherds. I am formalizing my goal to sell everything I own, buy an rv pack up the dogs and see the country. I love all animals, but I'm partial to dogs. I've had Toby since he was 8 weeks old and he is smarter than I am.

I am a dog person too. I have a corgi (lass),a spinger spaniel (snoopy) and a cross between a sheepdog and a gundog (Sam). They all have different personalities and give me a stare if i dont let them in the door.

Hi

I have 3 dogs, 4 cats, and a household full of love for them all. I do not think of them as pets as much as I think of them as my children. While growing up I had a dog and cat and as the years progressed I have diversified my pet consumption and at one time I had 13 ferrets! What wonderful pets they were and oh so much work but it was all worth it. To clean cages each day became very tiresome but again so worth it. They would have free reign of the house when I was at home and they were so good about going to their litter box I had no problem with any mess or smell. Each one responded to their name, how smart is that. They get into everything and steal what they find appropriate to hide or to sleep with whatever the case they are not felons whats yours is theirs and whats theirs is theirs also. I did not realize ferrets do not last but 5 to 10 years, I assume because they are so hyper. Mine lasted 15 plus years. It was heart break when they started leaving me one by one and yes hard on them as well because of the adrenal disease they contract. I feel very fortunate to have had the experience I had with them. Some were rescue ferrets I got because of the abuse they had endured in the past. They were scared when I got them but through love and nurturing they came around to trust once again. The only thing I can say is: People, parents do not get a ferret for your children, this is why a lot of them are lost or uncared for and they do need a lot of interaction, care, love, and respect. Children lose interest fast. Anyway on a lighter note all animals are very intelligent, forgiving, nurturing, lending us their unconditonal love. My Emma, Molly, Max, Griffon, Annie, Ellie, Valentine I love you all so much and in remembrance to all who have passed on.

Thank you all for sharing. I find the subject of pets and animals so interesting. I love my pets. I don't know what I would do without my pets. I have a 14 year old cat, a 4 year old cat and my chihuahua is 3. She is the baby and the smallest animal of the three. My cats are not too happy because Sugar is too hyper. Is there ever a chihuahua that does not bounce off walls? Do they mellow out as they get older? I certainly hope so?

Hi,

I have a dog that i have had since he was 6 weeks old a labrador, i love him to bits but i feel i am a bit hard on him sometimes as he is still very much like a puppy even though he is nealy two!

I had a gorgeous 16hh chestnut horse as well called summer who was my pride and joy, she was young too, she was 4 years old but after only having her for a year i had to sell her to my best friend because i had an unexpected pregnancy and struggled to look after a horse and a baby!

It was very sad for me but luckly because my friend had her i still get to visit and hopefully when my daughter is older i can have another horse and maybe a pony for her!
In the mean time i will concentrate on my lovely dog frankie who is very caring and loyal to all of us.

Hi I love my pets - 2 persian cats and an 8 month old puppy called Phoebe

I retired 7 months ago and couldn't have a dog before because of work, so now I am at home much more I am able to have the dog I have wanted for years a Lhasa Apso. She is delightful, just needs a bit more training!! She gets on well with the cats and sometimes they all sleep together - what a lovely sight.

They are my friends.
