My sympathies Craig and Dogge. Sometimes life throws us the biggest curveballs in the oddest of times. Always reminds us that nothing is to be taken for granted, and to always be there for the ones you love.

We’ve been fortunate to have a little turn of events. Our dog wasn’t eating, drinking or taking his meds at all this morning. Around noon he started with irregular breathing, eyes turning, etc. We held him and thought he was going. After about an hour he came to, but was still very weak. We decided to go to the vet and my daughter said her goodbyes and we left her at a friends. He was shaking uncontrollably on the ride. Once there, because we still had doubts, we asked for an emmergency check up with a vet. While waiting, he started eating again. He was fairly lively during the examination. She disagreed with the other vet’s diagnosis. Said there is a fair chance that it is some vertigo old dogs can get and if that’s it, it usually passes in a week or two. Did some more bloodworks again. They aren’t good, but she doesn’t think they -or his liver problem- can explain the neurology. Can be a brain tumour, a stroke or that vertigo thing. With that, we of course decided to come back home with the dog. Taking some nausea meds on top of the other he was already taking. For now, he seems relatively fine. Sleeping with my daughter, ate this evening, etc. As unbelievable as it sounds, we brought the dog to get put to sleep on Christmas eve, my daughter said her goodbyes, he seemed out of it like he was passing. Was drooling, has some convulsions with very irregular breathing. Get to the vet, and he gets significantly better and gets a new shot. Instead of dying this evening, he’s sleeping with my daughter. He may not be out of the woods, but there is also a chance he pulls through longer and in any event, a really nice turn of events. Maybe a bit of Christmas magic there.

For the record, I am 100% happy to hear about your dog. I lost mine a few (eight) years ago. It was very painful. I hope you and your kids have the best Christmas with your lovely canine.

I had lost a cat (had him 17 years), and a dad and all grandparents and too many others. It’s more the date and the dramatic turn of events and having an 8 year old. Her dog, whose death she was dreading for years, went to be put to sleep on Christmas eve...and came back. Bit of unbelievable in there. Might or might not last, but it’s a little bit of something nice regardless.

The screen play I'm writing right now is called The little dog who saved Christmas, the story is unrelated to yours though.

I wanted to post about not worrying about the Dog's dog going back to the energy of the universe or whatever this thread is about instead of spending hundreds of dollars on vet bills, but who am I to tell the Dog to not waste his money on the inevitable?

I’m spending hundreds not thousands. Willing to do some, but not go crazy. Balance thing.

In other news, the dog appears to be getting better and better. Think going to get him killed scared him into shape.

My wife's sibling just spent a few grand on fixing their cat. It had teeth issues and had to have some removed. The vet ended up breaking the cat's jaw and they had to take it to a specialist who removed 6 teeth and fixed the jaw.

I don't know if I would have been willing to spend that much on a pet. I guess I probably would if my wife cried enough about it. I'm a sucker like that.

Sorry to hear about your Grand Father Craig . We lost my Mom 6 years ago Christmas Eve. I realised yesterday that I hadn’t thought of it yet . I’d thought of her but not that she died on Dec. 24, first time .

Hope your Dog has some comfortable time left Dog.

Maybe, but this isn't the US. We don't sue everyone for everything that doesn't go our way. Besides, they feel bad for the vet because the vet feels bad for hurting the cat. Canadians are wimps like that.

Also why would anyone want a vintage saddle other than hanging it on a wall. You cant intonate it perfectly.

Good point, but even if I might save money by buying the newer model, it doesn't have the same tone as the vintage saddle bridge I'm looking for. The main thing is the buzz noise, which can sound cool on certain recordings, but if I'm looking for something that sounds clean, it can be a head ache.

I really like that sunburst finish though Image

In that you do recording id probably get a cheaper one with electronic upgrades like stacked humbuckers and. Push pull splits. So it can do a lot of things. But maybe you already have a full arsenal of gear.

Also there are asat from g and l.....

Actually now several hrs later it all makes sense. Get a mexican one with 6 saddles. Intonate it as if it had 3. It will sound the same through your equipment and work for both

Yup, I might just do that. I'm looking through youtube and reverb.com to know what's the real difference in tone. Not one of those tone freaks, but if I'm getting a Tele, it better be what I want.

Also remember just how much moving the mic changes the sound when listening to compressed yt videos. The reason to buy the guitar you linked is to impress a client.

That tone thing is real but its not recordable. Players feel the vibrations and hear the acoustic properties of an electric and the how the neck feels(its mostly the neck). The equipment doesnt care. Its just soundwaves a magnet pulls. Changing strings does more than anythong

Yeah. They thought it was a cancer, did a stomach scan and it’s no cancer. Right now it just seems to be old age and organ degeneration related thereto. Fucker’s having the time of his life eating home cooked meals everyday (he’s decided he won’t touch anything else). Meanwhile, just learned yesterday that my buddy’s dog died. 9 years old, unexpected. Quite sad.

And you, Joseph, ça va la vie?
