Mum just called. And the dog has died. Dad took him to the vet to see about arthritis, turns out he had diabetes and cancer as well. They decided to put him down.



It's gonna be hard to see the empty yard and kennel next time I visit home.

Feel for you there, Serp.

I lost my dog a couple of years ago now. He'd been ill, losing weight etc, so our local vet put him under and did an op on him. He perked up and despite not putting much weight on seemed to be on the mend, albeit slowly and would have to go back in for a second - minor - op later on.
Couple of weeks later I was sat here at my desk and watched him hopping about full of life as my mum took him out to the car to take him across for the second op.
I wombled off to work, and that was the last time I saw him

It sucks losing a dog, as they're more than just a pet.

Yea. This is the second one. I still remember losing the first vividly, as I was only four or something when we brought that puppy home. I grew up with him, and we lost him when I was sixteen.

This one we knew was on his last legs, but didn't expect it to be over so soon. I remember the day we brought the energetic little black and white blur home and he tore around the backyard like a fennec on speed.

They become family.

Yeah, they sure know how to get under your skin don't they?

Three years on and the house still seems too quiet.....

I think all my plogs just died. Went to reference one in a post and saw that most of the pictures I added to them have since disappeared. Not that I update them frequently...but I'm not going through all those pages and figuring out what the hell the pictures were and re-posting them and I sure as fuck don't want to put in the effort posting more if this is going to happen.

Fuck.

Unfortunately Canada got rid of the penny and now my two cents rounds down to zero, so...take it for what you will.

Crap that sucks man - What services do you use to host your images?

Personally I use hidden army showcases here on the forum, so I know they never expire. The images have a max width and height of 1500 but it suits most needs.

I hope you find a solution!

Photobucket seems pretty reliable as well. Till you hit their limit on their free accounts.

Have you tried tinypic? I find they're better than Imageshit and Photofucket.

I appreciate the sympathies, gentlemen. I will look into this...tinypic. I guess as pictures get older on Fb they change the URL that you reach them at, which is I guess par for the course with the disappointment that Fb lends to my life.

I guess (the) 13 pages (of my BA plog) isn't so bad to sift through and figure out what pictures go where based on the text available and whatever is left over on Fb that I have uploaded. What pisses me off more is that I could be painting (or indeed anything else) instead of doing this. Right now I'm feeling like I rolled twin 6's for my morale in the situation, gunna try and regroup soon. I might just start fresh with a hopefully more appropriate photo hosting platform and pick through the other pages as I find the will.
