My life has been torn asunder. We put Levi down last Thursday morning at 1:30 am. February 23, 2012. I’m only now able to kinda blog about it. He was my heart dog, my heart and soul, I miss him terribly. Last week he had a bully stick, then diarrhea, and I don’t know if that was why, but he stopped being abel to walk. My husband says it wasn’t my fault, but I don’t know. After a few days he kept going downhill. Wednesday night he was in pain, and at 1:30 in the morning he’d shake and whine, and I couldn’t let it go on. So we took him to the emergency vet and they put him down.
I did agility last weekend, which was good therapy, and Jet got his MXJ and Qualified in every run. He is such a good boy and we had a lot of fun. I made a ton of people cry over Levi, but they all understand. They understand the bond we have with our dogs. I’m very sad, and hopefully I’ll be able to go a whole day, sometime soon, without crying. But it may be a while.
Well tomorrow I’m off for a trip to Grand Junction, Colorado for a Chris Zink Seminar. I’ve heard lots of great things about her seminars so I’m looking forward to it. I have a working spot with Jet, we’ll see what she thinks about him. I’m not really feel very good today, a bit of a bladder flare, but I’m taking it easy and almost all packed up. Maybe some cedar furniture will be available in the hotel where I can relax! And fortunately it’s a mostly sit down type seminar… dang I better remember a pen. I always forget a pen!
Hopefully I’ll blog about it when I get back. I won’t have to be on my feet all weekend which, I think, will be a good thing.
Well over the last few days I’d discovered my web sites had all been hacked. I dunno how or why… but it sucks. So I’ve been restoring from backups. Fortunately my databases weren’t touched, so that’s good. They are the most difficult things to restore. The files are easy. WordPress is such an amazing blogging software platform that installing the files on top of the database is just time consuming, but not too terribly awful. And it’s a good time to clean up old files and junk too, right?
I will need to pick a theme and restore it, too. This is just a generic one for now. But since my next three weekends are packed with stuff to do, it may be a while. My pictures are uploading now, from backup, and hopefully will be up before I go to bed tonight.
This coming weekend I have an ASCA agility trial, should be fun. Jet is entered in everything. Chase is even entered one day. Been feeling kinda bad since he’s just doing obedience now. I can’t do flyball anymore, I just don’t have the time. And he gets walks and stuff but still he misses the running full bore things. So even though we don’t really mesh in agility, we’ll see how it goes for a day. Tatum is entered on Sunday in just a couple of runs to keep her going and have fun. She can’t make ASCA times but we have fun anyway.
The following weekend a friend and myself are going to a Chris Zink seminar in Grand Junction, Colorado. That should be fun and I’m really looking forward to it.
The weekend after that is a 2 day AKC agility trial. Maybe Jet and I can pick up another QQ or so. 🙂
So in between I’ll be restoring blogs and finding new themes. And finding better ways to protect my sites from being hacked. Dumb hackers. Dangit, they need to just leave well enough alone!
