    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    I think he started again because he recently was made a really nice offer by an old employer and went back to them. His old work buddies are heavy drinkers and I think peer pressure has gotten the best of him. ETA: that, and he has told me he thinks he can have one and stop. *Eye roll*

    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    We went through therapy last time. He eventually stopped and I continued to go, it opened my eyes to see that I had some personal issues of my own that were unresolved. Because of that, he thinks I'm the issue and not him. I haven't suggested it this time, because I know he wouldn't take it...

    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    Thanks sage, I really appreciate you telling me that the vows can be broken because of this infraction. It's hard, I truly believe of "in sickness and in health" and this is a terrible sickness. As for two years, I'm not even sure I'd take him back after that. He was sober for 5 before this...

    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    And, Raven has been great. She lets me lay on her and just cry. I don't cry to the kids and try to stay positive and reinforce that their dad and I love them more than the world. But my little Raven, she knows the truth and she's been a rock so far. It's so weird, she knows I'm upset and...

    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    Thanks guys. I try to understand that it is an illness and it's the booze and not him talking, but he started drinking again in January. I had a big heart to heart with him and told him how much his drinking hurts me. I wasn't screaming, I wasn't angry, I thought things went well and he would...

    We had a bad day today.

    I'm sorry to hear this. I think that liability-wise, you are pretty safe, both dogs were leashed and both owners agreed to let the dogs meet. I muzzle Raven. We worked slowly and she associates muzzle with positive stuff, like car rides and going to see Grammy. It's just something we have...

    So, I'm gettin' divorced....

    I'm just so heartbroken. My husband and I of almost 9 years are divorcing. I filed. He started drinking again and I just can't take it. He accuses me of horrible things (cheating, etc) and is the textbook alcoholic husband. I'm so crushed, but I know no matter what he says, things are not...

    WTFWTF Wednesday: What The Fuck? Way Too Fat edition.

    I love when I see fit littles. I can't help but go up to the owner and applaud them for keeping their dog(s) so healthy and nice-looking. I love when I see fit big dogs too, but seeing a fit little is an anomaly here. Most owners (here) think their overweight toy dog is cute. It's so sad.

    WTFWTF Wednesday: What The Fuck? Way Too Fat edition.

    Poor dog is just waiting for CHF. How could the owners not see that? Moreover, we have vets in this area that don't even comment if a dog is overweight. This obesity epidemic in the states, in humans and animals is shameful.

    Would you intervene if you saw an animal being abused?

    I've seen what I consider abusive "training" at some events I've gone to. In those circumstances I just shake my head. However, I'm not a big believer in positive punishment-type training, so take that with a grain of salt. Some may be more tolerant of seeing it happen than I. If I saw a...

    What an eventful week end.(LONG)

    Wow, I'm so glad to hear Cesar is fine, but furious at that vet.

    New behavior- selective with people

    How are these people that he dodges approaching him? Are they going towards him palm up or palm down ready to pat on the head?

    Raven is having lower eyelid surgery next week

    We're great everyone! Healing has been a challenge because, as you all know, it's hard to keep a hyper puppy on restriction, but we made it! Also got the path results Friday and the tumor was benign!! So happy!!:dance2::dance2:

    Raven is having lower eyelid surgery next week

    Raven's out of surgery and home. She's groggy and looks horrible. It was a tumor and had really deep roots, they cut very deep into the tissue to get it all. It's being sent out for pathology, results will be in next Thursday at the latest. She's got a flap of skin that I have to watch...

    Updated pictures of Achilles

    Ah, well, we'll have to agree to disagree. I'm pretty well acquainted with Steve Rosamburg in WA state, who would probably advise you that sch isn't something to dabble in...it's a lifestyle.

    He's a gorgeous boy! Just curious why sch? I'm not a huge fan of encouraging HA in bull breeds.
