@achewood Jumping jacks, flinging myself off of low decks, yelling into an empty bottle of carrot juice. Trying to get in writing mode.

Thanks man, he's still with us for now.

We did another round of tests and it's come down to "I don't know for sure" from the internal medicine specialist.

Could be a thyroid lesion, but it presents some aspects of that which don't fit. Could be lymphoma but not all those aspects fit.

Either way, I don't believe in surgery or chemo for pets, it's quality over quantity for us. So we're going to do a daily steroid because it seems to help and monitor his ionized calcium and ride this out as far as we can.

Yesterday I cooked up one of the shit-headed roosters and went and sat on the back porch with him and fed all the meat and skin to him. He liked that a lot.

Cattle Dhog is only six years old. Last month he started losing weight and his appetite went away. Did a hospital thing and got him stable, but everything came back nope, nope, nope. So we haven't been able to get a real diagnosis.

He leveled off for a month (Vet thinks the steroids helped him) but started crashing again over the weekend. Went to the Vet this morning thinking we were going to have to put him down, but we're throwing another big dose of steroids to see if we can pull him out again. If he seems a little better tomorrow I'll make an appointment with an internist and see if we can get some traction.

Best goddam dog ever, I guess I better hope we figure it out.

[update] He followed me by the fridge this morning and gave me a look. So I offered him up some tidbits of shredded chicken and he went for it. Maybe we got some action on this.

[update update] He's been getting a cupful of chicken and rice every three or four hours. Now whenever I slow down near the fridge, he trots over, sits down and gives me the very pointed food stare.

OK, my subconscious stress levels are finding things other than livestock to peal apart.

I've been dealing nightly with lost stuff, last night was a non-stop look for something/someone by truck and foot. Kept getting delayed and sidetracked, had a non-stop undercurrent of panic, never found my goal.

Turns out my sub-conscious is really basic. If it was a book it'd be a pop-up book with pictures, no text. I've been doing work stuff directly related to another round of layoffs that hit today. Yuck. I'm not cut out for plowing under the careers of people I've know for years.

I expect guilt dreams shortly.

About as often as we hang out here...but kinda?

Also, working from home I'm getting more sleep, thus more dreams that I can remember.

Last night's was a stress dream about giving the baby goats their next set of shots. Random shit kept interrupting me, including one sidetrip where comedian Iliza Schlessinger towed me into searching for her (dead in real life) dog. I kept trying to get back to giving goat shots and...nope.

I swear even my sub-conscious stress level is getting taken over by livestock. Jeez.

Yep, pre-ordered. I hope they sell enough of them to continue putting out the rest

OK, there is a good reason for me to pre-order this.

Happy birthday, Wombles. Without your insistence I would have fought off becoming a goat-herd much longer, and been the lesser for it.

Inev and that Mix:

1) I lost this amongst 'puter changes somehow and am glad to find that not only is it still downloadable, but that it only took me TWO tries to figure out the password. It is awesome. WIRE! MISSION OF BURMA!

2) Is it weird that I'm going to blast it while doing my yoga-type core training? I THINK NOT.

Old man takes adult son to punk rock bar for show. News at 11!

(even if you don't care for T.S.O.L. or Jack Grisham, read his book, it's flippin' awesome.)

I still think Dan the Goat getting his head stuck in a poultry feeder is the funniest thing ever.

He basically asked for help with his predicament:

In the background you can see Red almost laughing out loud at him.
