    He's just got a crazy sensitive stomach which I guess is common with Huskies. He can eat a blade of grass and it will give him mudd butt and defconZ level gas afterward

    Will he hate you and refuse to engage until you provide food? That's what my friends golden does. Literally goes limp until food is provided. If he still acts like a normal dog but without food yeah you might want to wait till you have less trip left to feed him haha

    Then you know it wasn't "quick". Just not sure how long it had been going on.

    He rarely eats all his food at once, like today I came home from work and his breakfast was still in his bowl which he ate about an hour ago. Then he'll go several days where he scarfs it up as soon as I can put it down. I brought it up with the vet awhile ago and they told me it was normal for the breed, as long as he's not going without eating entirely

    He does this thing lately where he gets super defensive of his food bowl with Harley, if Harley so much as makes a move toward the kitchen Dex will jump up and haul ass to guard his food...but if Harley does manage to get to it first Dex will just sit behind him and watch him eat it looking all defeated lol. I've started putting his bowl next to his bed in the living room so at least he isn't gatekeeping the entire kitchen

    Yeah I feel that, whenever Dex has a weird one or doesn't go on our walk I get a little nervous. We adopted a senior 11 yr old Lab last year that we only had for about a month before we discovered he had aggressive untreatable cancer. I initially noticed it when he stopped pooping because the tumor was blocking his intestines.

    Even though Dex is perfectly healthy it still makes me nervous when his poop or poop schedule is off because of that experience

    How is Venice doing at the new place? I imagine a change in scenery/environment like that can result in a temporary change in stuff like their normal poop routine and energy level

    Sure sounds like it, been listening on the app while we were packing tonight, and while walking Dex right now. Sounds like Copley is doing well tonight

    She is doing well. She is getting comfortable, today was her first day alone in the apartment while I was at work and didn't cause any trouble. Usually when I had separated her from the pack her behavior got more calm and that's what I see now, just a lot more needy than before which I expected.

    As far as the poop, we are still working on a routine. She usually only went outside a couple times a day at the house where the other two went outside a lot. She just isn't needy that way. Hopefully when I go out shortly for our final walk she gets it together lol she did have two yesterday so maybe she is just empty :laugh:

    Definitely one of his better games. 8-0 on the road not a bad start.

    My NWTI rear bumper kit is still sitting to this day.

    Rear shock relocation, rear frame stiffeners, fabricating a rear swingout, etc. I could say screw the rear swingout and probably get away without doing the frame stiffeners. But I'll never do any of it because my welds suck lol.

    @BartMaster1234 do you collect old home alarm boxes? I took this one out of my house. Does it look like something maybe you want?

    I don’t know how some people sleep at night.

    Something that still sends chills down my spine is seeing the look on their face when you finally confront them. Like they ripped their mask or fake skin off or something.

    Ha, that's very cool! Looks like it's from the 80's.

    Not super collectible on my end, but thanks for thinking of me.

    At this point, it's all clarity on my end. Confronting does nothing in the end. Just need to sell the house, the van and move on.

    I just had a bonehead truck moment. I felt shuttering when gassing it in first gear and my brain immediately went to why would I have a misfire when my load is low and it's pulling great in every other gear. Spent probably 20 minutes driving around thinking about it and then it hit me oh it's freezing out and I'm on mud terrains I'm just blowing through the tires at 3 or 4 PSI.
