Just a quick note to say hi! good to hear from you. I think of you sometimes too. You are a strong person, constantly giving hope and courage to others. Your sobriety is a statement in itself. How is your mother?...and your house companions? I have been experiencing a lot of depression along with pain from gallstones and IBS. The depression got bad and I didn't feel like talking to anybody. My doctor prescribed an anti-depressant. I'm going to give it a try. I just don't produce enough of the feel-good chemicals in my brain naturally (for now anyhow). So what's happening with you?

We don't give Lyme's shot here although it is about. One week and I can take her out on her lead! Sobriety getting stronger, this site with kind people like you and the very strong shares have helped so much.

Hi, we are not sure if it is law or not for her to have the shots but it is pretty standard over here. Taking her with us on holiday at end of year and next year so will not have to be kennelled. Kennel cough is rife in kennels but my late mother's dog caught it anyway. Another sober evening here, thank you so much for helping me, I am just starting to feel I don't miss it.

Her are Lady's injections: Distemper, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis, Parovirus, Parainfluenza, all these are in one shot, she has two shots then a booster every year, if I wanted to put her in kennels she would have to have a record of these shots plus kennel cough.

We are rabies free but in other parts of Europe, Greece say, visitors are advised not to stroke or play with dogs because of rabies. Another sober evening ahead, am playing with Lady in garden and watching a bit of football (World Cup).

Hi

It isn't rabies we hear very, very little of it in the UK, dogs are prone to picking up other things though, I will have a look at her card and send details later, she has to have two shots before she can be taken out on a lead.

It's her two puppy injections before she can be taken out on a lead, she has had one the other next week, my guess is I may be able to take her out soon. She then has a booster injection every year.

Hi! We can reach 32c or more in the height of the summer. Hubby is a dog lover too. Our hobby is walking the dogs in the forest or the beach in winter. He is on nights tonight, I am settled though, Lady is asleep at the moment, she will retrieve unlike the previous two cavvy's so have had fun with that this afternoon. Her second injection next week, do you know how long it will be before I can take our out on her lead after this?

I used to due pet sitting for an agency for years. They sent me a lovely pair of whippets over a 2 year period, I fell in love with them, gave up the job in March and bought one for myself lol! I also had a retired greyhound called Tiger from agency. I will put his photo up when I can and alert you. Do you have any photo's of your greyhounds? I love them. 'Lady' is red brindle parti colour. I have never owned a whippet before but we have had: the family dog x times x breed he lived till 18! Lady cavvy, and also Becky 10 years old now cavvy. Lovely to hear from you!

There aren't any AA groups in this immediate area. But I will definately be distancing myself from the people who are drinkers. I rarely go out as it is, so that isn't a problem. I tried volunteering at the end of last year -for a cat rescue no kill center that did adoptions out of petsmart...BUT I ended up adopting a cat from them and knew if I stayed longer...there would have been more lol. I am at 3 now. Almost had 4! I know my weakness there too so no more animal shelter work : ) Thanks for thinking of me and keeping me in your prayers. How is your sobriety going?

I can't tell you how nice it is to have someone to talk to about this. You have been very kind. I guess she wanted me to drink with her so she wouldn't feel alone --i see she is dependent on alcohol, and most likely has a problem. She actually brings a bottle with her whenever she goes somewhere. Anyway, I resisted which is something a few months ago I never would have done! I would have started and not stopped until I passed out. I am going to try and avoid these types of people but in the real world I know it is going to be difficult, so better to face them and jump the hurdle than avoid them. I never imagined I would end up this way. Alone--no family or friends, basically financially destitute and pretty much a recluse.

Thanks for the note. I am happy to say I had my first social situation, and wow!! I was so tempted to drink, and the person I was with kept asking me to have one with her. I was steadfast and never gave in. I just know I could not stop at just one.
Hope your sobriety is going well.

Haha- and that's why I would not make a good CL.  I don't think I can be detached enough.  Thanks for the note and you have a good weekend too. I don't know what part of Ohio you're from, but it's sunny and warm here in southern Ohio (finally).  The dogs are panting and the grass is growing!

I used to get angry......okay, maybe I still do now and then! But not so much, because that's what they want.  Strange sub-culture!

Interesting - I'm a member of this alcoholism forum and another one......the other one has been under attack by trolls lately.  Is this a trend? It's getting so that I can spot them a mile away.  I imagine you can too, after being a CL here for a number of years. Don't these people have anything better to do with their lives? LOL!

Yes, I was thinking exactly the same thing. That's why I only gave it one reply.  I guess my thought is that if you want to know the legality of an issue, you're best off talking to a lawyer!  I sure can't answer it for him.
