There you are.

Yesterday I went to work in the morning.  I came home in the afternoon.  Today I went to work in the morning as well.  I came home in the afternoon as well.  :)

Isn't abandoning furniture to the front of a nice apt complex rather déclassé?   :hmm:

I've given it serious thought. I must scorn the ways of my family, and seek a Japanese woman to yield me my progeny. He shall live in the lands of the east, and be well tutored in his sacred trust to weave the best traditions of Japan and the Sacred South together, until such time as he (or, indeed his house, which will periodically require infusion of both Southern and Japanese bloodlines of note) can deliver to the South it's independence, either in this world or in space.  -Lettow April of 2011

Slargos

Quote from: Barrister on April 25, 2011, 06:54:08 PM
We're going to pay close to $3000 for the dog to have his ACL repaired.  Poor guy has been hopping on 3 legs for a week now.

My wife has had the dog for longer than she's had me around.  I didn't have the heart to suggest we not pay the money.

But damn - that's a lot to pay for a dog who is estimated to live 4 more years.

:rolleyes: x 20

I was rolling my eyes at the notion that $3000 is too much money since "it's only got 4 years to live".

I don't think less of you for entertaining the notion, since I understand you might not have a bond to the dog other than you'd have for your car or a fancy set of steak knives, but it is completely foreign to me to think that way.

It's a valid point.  You can get a shiny new dog for much less, and it will last you 15 years or so.

You have to think that way though.

If he was only going to live another 6 months we wouldn't get the surgery at all.

If you're poor, sure. If I had four kids to feed, a stay-at-home wife and a shitty job at the plant, it obviously wouldn't be much of a contest. If the choice is between buying a new LCD TV or getting a $3000 surgery for my dog who's going to live another 6 months I wouldn't even think twice about the money. I would speculate on the value of a surgery where the anasthesia might kill him, but the cost? Not a chance.

He did, but it was deemed a mongrel and euthanized.  Is "euthanized" a word?  I get little red lines under it, but it looks right.

I thought he euthanized it because it was black? :unsure:
