Is it just the apprentice wage which puts BigUn off JFF or is there nothing in that line that interests him?

If there were things of interest then taking the apprentice route is a really good one - and I assume he's still at home with the Bank of Mum and Dad to make up the shortfall in dosh!!

Good old Ned - I guess the cats will keep putting him in his place until he learns......if ever But I do like a dog with a bit of character!

(((DL))) from a safe distance! Sounds like you've actually really been proper poorly........make sure you work from home gently this week and get better properly too!

Loving the all too true picture too of bored kids and shopping centres!

I've dropped the boys off and felt so guilty - the NV is old with a dodgy heart so there's the worry of his making it through and the DG absolutely did not want to leave me on account of the number of strange vets / places I've left him over the past few years with his cancer

This is the downside of dog ownership....

Oh well - nowt I can do now than wait for the phonecall.........

Back to getting as much done as possible

Morning All

Shame about the Buddhist stuff Yums as I know it was really good for a while

You say your life isn't exciting but if you are out 3 or 4 nights a week it sounds good to me! Unless of course that is mother duties which is tough

Such a shame about Mini 1.....does he have any idea of what he wants to do?

Glad the weekend went well Sluggie. It is important to look after yourself for your own sake as well as in terms of being there for SM

Well done to the weekend walkers....will catch up with blogs etc at work today

The boys are having dentals today so no brekkies for them much to their disgust. As always slightly worrying due to their ages and the NV's heart problem.....

Anyway need to get sorted now as boys are to be admitted at 0800 this morning then I'll go into work and try and concentrate!

Later all

Happy Monday

Afternoon All

Well run Meldy - hope you managed to stay awake during your evening out.............

Hope the ABs are kicking in now DL and you feel a bit better

Welcome Pavel - patience indeed!

*waves to the rest of the gang*

I have been to the kennels this morning - 5 have been rehomed including one of my faves.......lets hope it's 3rd time lucky for him (he as the poo fairly dog).

The family brought their old lab up to meet him and they got on really well.  The family then reserved him as they're about to move home and thought it better not to disrupt him..........and that night their lab died!  They found the hole in the house horrible so Kenny has gone home immediately - got everything crossed for him

Also 5 newbies - including one of the most shut down dogs I've ever met He's obviously been attacked by another dog as he has a crescent scar of teeth marks over one eye  He's not scared of people per se just doesn't seem to have any inability to interact

I apparently have a chest infection therefore confirming that OH was right all along and ensuring all remains right in the universe!

Oddly enough there are a lot of chest infections going around currently - we've had quite a few teachers off with it 

I am about to roust the boys to go and visit their English Setter girlfriend and learn how to bake dog biscuits!!

She told me I needed buckwheat flour...........which I couldn't find anywhere and being absolutely useless at baking spent ages last night googling to try and find out what other flours could substitute!!

LOL - are you putting the world to rights MC?

I too hate the myths that are perpetuated on FB and other sites.....as you say, there are many vulnerable people out there and also many desperate ones who will grab onto anything........

I have a similar thing with the greyhound forum I'm on.  I completely accept and agree that greyhounds are physiologically and in some aspects biochemically different to all other breeds of dog and as such having a greyhound savvy vet is good. This is a fact and nowadays many vets are aware of this

Furthermore many vets experience greyhounds during their training as they are excellent for external anatomy, taking blood etc

But there are some people who are complete zealots about a vet in Uxbridge and will travel hundreds of miles / recommend travelling hundreds of miles to consult him for the most minor thing......and it really annoys me as it does down the many good vets out there and encourages people who may already be struggling financially to make this journey and also gives them false hope 

It all started as he had a topical corn preparation which really seems to work - and I know people who are prepared to swear to this.

From my point of view I always used to think he was very selfish not patenting it and making it available to other vets subsequently.........it turns out that now he has done this and is raking in the big bucks but he is keeping quiet about it as he has such a queue at his door for treatment that "only he" can provide.... 

However I daren't say such a thing on FB as I'd get lynched as an unbeliever

I'm very jealous of the Criminal Minds

I got into this 2 summers ago when I spent the summer sleeping downstairs with the DG after his surgery.........we'd watch the 11pm and midnight episodes and then at 1am when the street lights went out that was bed time

Nice to see OH being so supportive MC!! 

Seriously - sounds like you're having a good dose of it so rest and liquids are prescribed by Dr Podds in the absence of more qualified WAISTers at this moment in time!!
