:) Yes, thank you all for a great fun evening on here!! Here's a bedtime prayer for you all:

Dear Lord, I pray for Wisdom to understand my man; Love to forgive him; And Patience for his moods. Because, Lord, if I pray for Strength, I'll beat him to death. AMEN.

lonewolf, I don't know where you live, but you do know that the coyotes can jump an 8" fence. And if they run in packs, they are not afraid of humans and would take your puppy away from you. So, that is great that you left him at home. But, the packs also will run in the daytime, not just at night. We have a pack running about 3 miles from us and since they move around, I am extra cautious when my toy poodle goes out.

Oh, we posted at the same time and I didn't see this. Now that I'm done laughing, I'm scared for my little guy. We used to live by about 100 acres of woods, but they've all been bulldozed down and new houses put in over the past 18 months. We have rats, rabbits, skunks, raccoons, squirrels and coyotes all displaced and over-running our long-standing neighborhood with large yards and lots of trees. First, the raccoons ate our chickens, then rats got into everyone's houses, then we started smelling skunks quite often. Now we keep seeing coyotes right on our street. First about a 20 pound pup several times, then a small adult, and then last night I saw a huge male.

We have a 5 foot high fence and I thought Buddy would be safe. I guess we'll keep him inside unless we are out with him. I know the coyotes have been in our yard, but I hadn't thought about them jumping the fence - we don't always close the gates.

Started Specific Carbohydrate Diet on 8-16-09 because son was diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis and want to give him moral support.

Diagnosed with Minimal Change Nephrotic Syndrome in 2003. Discovered that going completely gluten-free put me in remission.

Just got back inside from letting out a few good howls at the moon...... :rolleyes:;)

2) I wouldn't want to offend anyone who might faint or swoon at the sight of anything even hinting at racy...

<_<:rolleyes:B)

yeah well....don't think that would offend - - just don't mention ANYTHING about religion lately...oops - keep that off here! we have a nice, happy, silly thread!

Then he had to tell me to stop laughing as he can't hear the football game.

GRRRRRRRRR!!! :angry: hate football....see my Bulldogs posts.... :lol: (a great year for me, a bad one for them!)

Okay...thanks for the laughs you goofballs. Updates.....Rachel - see the OMG thread - most likely has LYME!!! can you believe this??? I just read it and am still processing it. NOt a 100% diagnosis, but most likely.....treatment to begin later.

Bad news....Vincent has left the forum. He had a thread about it earlier this morning, I tried to post on it, and it was gone. I dont' know what's going on. I really think we need him here.....maybe everyone should BEG him to come back? :(

I gotta go....not feeling great - - too much rice pudding..... :ph34r: my new favorite thing.... :o

Liz - where do you live? sounds fantastic but do take care of that sweet little dog!

Bev - you crazy th ing - - - love the photo, you vixen :lol:

What you may want to do is build a dog run with a house and a door on the front of the run out of chain link for when you put him out there. If you have a door with a latch and a way to put a lock on it then you could put him out there when it is nice and lock it so no one lets him out and no coyote will push up the latch and open it. They will not just go after your puppy but also when he gets older. My mother's German Shepherd when they were out walking in the morning was attacked by coyotes and had to have stitches. That wa done by a single coyote.

The problem is humans are greedy and have taken away the habitat of the animals, we can move but their place of living is theirs for life.

Happy Birthday Tavi.

Now the scariest age for me was 30, so far. However, I know that they made a mistake on my birth certificate because my mind is 25 except for the senility part and well my body is the give away, this morning it feels ninety. Of course winter weather makes it hurt and creak more. My saving grace is most think I am maybe 40 not that over half a century look.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

You guy's are just too funny! I know Patti can relate as she just hit the mark. Susan: I just thought that when you are 50 I will be 55 wishing I was 50, why are we so messed up about our ages?

I did email Vincent and he is gone, that's too bad, I enjoyed his posting.

Guess what?? There is another Tavi posting! Could it really be me and I have multiple personalities, and just don't remember posting? Could it be the picture of the dog's name? Oh my, holy moley batman what is going on?

No....it involved religious discussions, I think. that specific thread has been removed. Harumph! I want Vincent back - - I begged him to at least get his mullett-ed self back to 40-something...too much pressure on Richard to sustain ALL the testosterone.........
