Our day just took a MAJOR dump !! Our 10 year old Cavalier went into sudden, major seizures, for no apparent reason. I rushed him to the local emergency pet clinic and he is there for 12 hours for tests and observation.
Absolutely no indication there was any problem with him before this happened at 8:45 am. I was reading an email and then would gave gone to the shop for a while. I'm glad this happened before I went out, or who knows how long he would have suffered in pain and anxiety.

Do a little detective work, see if he could have gotten into something they shouldn't. Thats the li'l doggo, right? Hope everything is OK, maybe he ate the wrong bug or found some sweets. Sucks when a pet is sick and the communication barrier rears it's head.

Black, yep. And the Chevy truck is going British Racing Green. Heres my in case it helps Brian shot-

Being I am not working today to go to my co-workers funeral I got out into the garage for a little work. I am not kidding you, he was a car guy, he loved my truck and would have been building something like this if he could have, being his money and house situation it was a no go. I figured it wasn't disrespectful but quite the opposite go get out there and work on it for him today.

I got the firewall spot blasted using my little "Speedblaster." Clamped a piece of metal on the hole so I wouldn't be blowing sand all over the garage, worked like a charm.

I then blasted the piece that gets welded on, yes it was wasted.

Then made a piece to replace the rusted area.

And gas welded it together.

And the last photo is of Martin, good bye buddy.

He's an inside dog, doesn't really like to be outside. He's very timid and the big yard, and world, are overwhelming to him. We didn't do anything different today than any other and he was, by all indications, fine and it was a normal day until he had this attack. His eyes were flitting back and forth, side to side and looked just like when I have a vertigo attack. The vet said dogs get that and it sounds like what happened, not necessarily a seizure, but they need to see if there is an underlying cause, such as a deep, inner ear infection or brain bleed. He injured his right eye a month ago and it's never completely cleared up, so they are going to see if there is a bleed there.

I been calling it a 53 but thats a guess. Your friend will be around sometimes now that he's free.

I may keep it all genuine Chevy today while I catch up on pics here. You know theres more triple redundant Chevelle shots coming because thats what I worked on today but heres more of the cab in process at the shop. I wasn't fast enough to catch a pic of the underside before it was masked off for this stage. For a minimal fix type job, this is goingvto make a nice truck in the end.

First pic is after I had that Silverado done earlier this week. Good gaps on it, the old cab, and the yellow one too. You'll see.

Good to hear you won't be bothered by worms or fleas...

We had to pay $1234 just to leave him for 12 hours and run some tests... if he has a serious condition, we aren't going to spend our retirement on him. He's a great dog and we love him, but there is a limit to what having a pet is worth, to us. Cavaliers have a bunch of inherited "issues" due to past inbreeding and at 10 years old, many of them can start showing up. We had him to our regular vet 8 weeks ago for his spring checkup and she never said anything about a heart murmur. Today, the vet said he has one ?? It could be possible he is going into heart failure and that would be the end of any discussion on what to do...

Good to know he got the "all clear" for the time being. David may not be so lucky, haha. I'm glad you wrote the update because I know that guy is you-all's best buddy. Cats have a thing where sometimes the world just starts moving real fast underneath 'em and off they go with pupils like saucers. Aminals are just wild. Hard to imagine their experience. Hope he feels better.

You gonna be alright with some indoor Chevelle pic whoring? It won't be bad. I could use a nap first though, sweated a bit this week. Some water, some bullets. Those damn tight cake cut looking gaps make me nervy.

I am sorry to hear about the issues with the pets. They sure do get to be part of the family.

David, Have Annie scratch you behind the ears and tell you what a good boy you are. Hopefully she will still let you put your food bowl on the supper table!

Barb and I frequently split a beer while sitting in the front porch swing at sunset. We split the beer the other night but did not get to watch the sunset.

Here is what we did see.













The beer is gone and Barb is afraid of the lightning.... Got to go in now.
