Hi All!

Just thought I would come on this board and see if I could liven the place up ...... <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

How's everyone doing?

LoveNCare, you are a real sweetie, I checked out your pix... I LUV those dogs. In fact, I am looking for one just like that right now.
So far, most are about $800.00 or more, here in Canada, so I need a miracle.

I know it sounds silly, but God cares about those things too.

SG ... behaving??????? <img border="0" title="" alt="[Wink]" src="images/icons/wink.gif" />

Mr. I hope you are staying strong??!!

Trying ... hope you are ok, I know this is a hard time for you ....

Well, Blessings all, I see some of you on the EN board and a few of you have taken on some BIG giants today .. lol

Hello Diamonzzz,
Thanks for the compliment! I did love them guys, but oh my the grooming was bad. Since I got hurt two years ago the brushing killed me. I had to clip them down - cute , but when ya show it can not be done! All of mine were very old and I lost the last one this past summer. The little girl was sold. She was being groomed that day to go - see the wet shirt lol! Get ahold of your human society, kennel club or internet sites for a rescue team for the Shih Tzu's! You can purchase them alot cheaper through them if you only want a pet. Males and females are both excellent. I had no problems with mine and I had 15 pups one time then about 12 adults. I try to stay with a good pedigree and also get a Shih Tzu magazine - they have them (if I can find one of mine I will give you the address or phone number). Do watch lines as some have lots of problems mainly skin and kidney, eyes. The line I had did have eye infections and I had to be real careful, but when I bred, I bred to a line that did not have it. Books would help you. I bought my last collie from Vancouver! She cost me 1100.00! Good luck hon, God Bless you and your family.

Dzzz,

Wouldn't you like to know!!!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Roll Eyes]" src="images/icons/rolleyes.gif" /> One nice thing about beng single is that I am not on a diet, if you know what I mean. Remember the old song " I'm a girl watcher ", well!!!!!!!
So YOU are going to liven the place up a little, huh! And what, might I ask do you intend to do? I will be waiting. Live entertainment? Stand up comedy? What?
I am going to St Paul,Mn today. Actually in a few minutes. They are predicting some nice temps here, 60 to 70 degrees. YEH!!!! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Cool]" src="images/icons/cool.gif" /> Then maybe snow by Saturday. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Frown]" src="images/icons/frown.gif" />
Why do you want a dog? Have you had one in the past? I'm not a pet person, yet anyway. I am on the go too much. I wouldn't give it the attention it deserved.
Anyway, bye for now!!!!

Thanks for thinking of me, Diamonzzz. Its tough going at the moment...longing feelings are coming in as well as thoughts of finding loopholes. Discussed this briefly with the missus and she knew I was tempted with the D word. Prayed and wrote in my journal in my quiet time last night and this morning for God to help me surrender myself to Him and not rebel against His Word.

I have always loved dogs. I have had a bunch in my life time. German Shepherd, 2 poodles, Terriers, Labs (great family dog btw), and various other mixes. I love them all. Dogs are the most faithful and loving animals. Everyone should have one. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />

Cats? hmmmmmmmmm. Don't wanna offend anyone here but ..... like my husband says "CAT", the OTHER white meat" ... lol <img border="0" title="" alt="[Big Grin]" src="images/icons/grin.gif" />

Hello Dianmonzzz,
I am a nurses aide and had a big male resident on the mental unit grab with both hands and twisted my wrist arm for 15-20 minutes before I could get him to let go. Then I double strapped it (right one) because they would not let me do an incident report, and continued working from Oct 15, 01 - 6-26, 02. I had other incidents and finally they would not let me work. I have had two surgery's and now was to have another one but my Doc changed diagnosis on me. This is the second time he has done this and I am up in the air about it this week. I have to find more info on what to do with him and comp. I may get another Doc opinion. The lawyer I have for comp is to busy to answer questions!

God Bless you

Hello Diamonzzz,
Yes still in pain. Both arms now but the right is the worst. I am right handed so a few months of doing most with the left one it started goofing up those tendons too. ( I am not a big girl just med and my arms are small so guess old age got them too lol!) They will not put the two together eventhough it is the same case so------you get so frustrated. Now they have me scheduled for strenght tests 2 hours 3&4 of Dec. I can't wait! Comp is always trying to boot me. I do not know how all this will go. I would love to return to work, but pain free! If I lift pains shoot right up arm half way. Thumb is still swollen from surg in March and I can not bend it!
Thanks for asking but this is getting to be a normal day for me.
God Bless you.

Diamonzzz, I hope you find your doggie companion! I agree God cares about those things too and He answers those prayers!

I had been trying to find a Keeshond for a couple years. There isn't many here in TX I guess and my H really didn't want me to get another dog. I admit I asked God for his help on this. Well, about 6 months ago I was able to find a small female Kees. My H was with me when I saw her and he agreed she needed to come live with us. Anyway she has been the sweetest, best behaved loving little ball of precious fur, ever! She is with me whereever I am at home. Its like she is saying 'thank you for rescuing me', she seems so happy to be here. She has a birth defect that made her undesirable to others but I don't care I love her immensely.

Your miracle dog is out there somewhere waiting for you to find him/her.

God bless!
