    Mines been kicking since rescue in 2006. Had heart worms, but treated/recovered. Blind in one eye and has occasional back leg stability issues. Gets along with dogs and cats and sadly has seizures from loud cyclic noises like vacuum cleaners, compressors, hair dryers, etc. he’s a trooper though!

    So sorry.
    We know the day we bring them home this day will come - it never gets any easier though. Look back and smile at all the good times.

    Can’t like the message but love the dog. Newfs are the best. Blessed are those lucky enough to have them in their lives. RIP gentle beast.

    My heart feels for you doing this was the most emotional thing I ever did.

    It was much worse then losing my Mom . I still cry at times thinking about things.

    Agreed. It's the worst day of having them. Thank you.

    Thank you for the kind words.

    She could turn dog haters into dog lovers....

    We had another who died about 4 years ago which means about 15 years of having Newfs in the house. I can't remember it being so quiet.

    15's a good run! I'm so sorry for your loss. Unrelated, I got my fingers crossed for beautiful weather next weekend!

    Our pup was a rescue too. Same for both our cats :thumbsup:. Seems like you all found the perfect matches for each other!

    Almost a direct quote from our Vet... Good advice, thank you!

    It's amazing how many people would say, "I used to have a Newfie." Like it was a one and done. I could see myself rescuing others but convincing the Mrs. might take some time.

    Dogs are family and I think it all comes down to the relationship. I definitely get more emotional over my pets than I do my father... Thanks for the kind words.

    Much appreciated. Thank you.
    Yeah, I think it's gonna be dusty in my house for a while.... Thank you for the kind words..





    Good Afternoon everyone :hattip:

    Thanks to all again for the kind words.

    During the past 15 years, my wife developed dog hair allergies. She loved the dog so much she just took meds and sucked it up. We got a new pup a few weeks ago. 1st time we ever bought a dog, usually we just went to the pound. We paid for it because it is part standard poodle, part Bernese mountain dog, so no shedding and no short lifespan that a Berne is known for.
    Nothing replaces your dog. I just turned the page and started a new chapter

    Condolences Pztank, we had to let go of our dog recently. never easy.


    It's been a busy few days at home. Plumbing is all redone. Just a hole in the driveway left to fill. And more windows to keep me busy 20230812_112019.jpg

    Spent most of my morning hurling expletives at both of my push mowers, it was only 147 degrees fahrenheit at 0800. The one I have been using never turned over. The old toro that is too short would crank and I mowed some with it then it died. Seems like a spark issue with the new one and a fuel issue with the old one.
    Ended up mowing most of the yard with the weed whacker, somehow it looks better. Until the lithium battery died with a quarter of the yard left, I just about gave up right there. 10 minutes on the charge, hit it again, 10 minutes on the charge hit it again. Still not done. Finally at 1030 I cracked a cold beer and muttered to myself about hating grass. Been inside licking my wounds ever since. Today ain't my day.

    Anyone have any experience with either of these ratchets? I'm looking at the ⅜ drive extended reach. I like the small head on the Hercules better than the Milwaukee M12's version, but the Hercules is not brushless. I know Milwaukee has a new high speed with a smaller head, but the bare tool is $300 here, and I'm (obviously) too cheap for that. Probably not a tool that will see a ton of use. I can pick up a Milwaukee for $210 here and my youngest has extra batteries and chargers that he will sell me (which I would consider free, keeping it in the family).

    So I'm trying to decide between this And this

    I'd go with the Milwaukee. I'm not buying battery operated tools from HF at any price more than a FREE tool with battery.
