Dad's been very determined to get his strength back, doing physical therapy
2x/week plus working at home every day. It shows. He's still got a bad
balance problem, but he's back to being able to compensate for it pretty
well. Amazing man, being 92 and with his other health problems. I'm just so
delighted to be able to stay home some days. It's been a long couple of
months and I miss my DH, pets, house, garden. We didn't even celebrate our
35th anniversary, since I was so tired.
Great news on the dogs! I know how hard it is to get them to that state.
Many, many hours. And it's crazy-making in a multiple pet home.
Answering the questions isn't as grand as it seems. My friend and I both
used to work for the Extension Service, so we've known each other for years.
He also has a couple of other folks that help out. I love picking the brains
of everyone here. I get a lot of odd questions through my website, and on
CompuServe. When I was 20, I figured I could learn it all. NOT! Never if I
lived to be 300, even if the brain cells stayed intact, which they aren't.

I have been taking the dogs for their constitutional off lead for a little
while now, usually when there aren't too many people outside to distract
them. Yesterday I had Izzie and Mary out for their time outdoors when a
neighbor from the street behind came walking through the yard. I wasn't
sure how they would react. They are very friendly and have no compunction
about jumping up on strangers to lick them to death, but not a lot of

that they just barked and when I told them to stop (before getting to the
neighbor) they actually minded. Then in the afternoon when I had Mr. Face
and Izzie outside, my next door neighbor was walking his yard before
He came over to see how we were and I was really concerned that 75 lb Mr.
Face would clean him out as he came at a run to see the "new" person in
yard, but I shouted "down" to him before he got to George and he, too,
actually minded! (He did slime George's pant leg, though, and rubbed all
around his legs like a giant cat as he was so pleased to meet a new--new
