We have four dogs and they are my family. Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things you can do. My sympathy.

Thankyou Greg ,... It's amazing how these four legged balls of fur burrow into our hearts and take up residence ,... Hopefully in a little time my gf Laura will come to grips with the reality of it all but right now she's not doing too well.
I gotta start paying a little more attention to my tank and start acting more like a zoo keeper and not just a passer by ,..overall not too bad but chalices have taken a hit .

My heart is accessed directly by dogs, humans, not so much, they require some study before I open up. That's why when one is gone it hurts so much.

Dary, as someone who lost two dogs within a 2 month period in 2011, my condolences to you and your girlfriend. While I'm guessing she can't even think about it now, I found jumping right in and getting another couple of cold noses around the house went a long way to mending a broken heart.

Wow, missed the second part of that post about the loss of the dog. Sorry to hear about that. I lost one of my hounds about a year ago... Literally died in my arms at home...we got another soon after. Our other hound was in a serious funk, as we all were so we got another shortly after. You can't ever replace, but the new addition has brought some joy (some headaches as well, but that is another story). My condolences.

Nice thing about chalices is that if not too far gone, they will regrow. I let my alk get out of kilter once and mind died back to only grow bigger after recovery.

ID:	262436I rechecked them today for the first time in a long,long,long while and was shocked by just how low they were,... I've got a BRS doser that I've been using for about a year now but I think I better step it up a notch or two and try to get things stable again ,... The neglect on the tank is in direct correlation with my on going trike build , which btw was ridden for a test ride last week !!! ( totally weird I may add ) , I'm currently awaiting a replacement of its rear brake assembly which was a real leaker when I rode it,... So with that project nearing its end for the time being I'll hopefully get to spend some more time with the tank and get things semi back to normal, I should know better re checking things out etc but got too sidetracked ,... My apologies to my tank and it's inhabitants

Dary's tank!

Mad Kow?

My Chevy Volt has "KW-HOUR"

My Porsche 928S4 has "VROOOM" you couldn't have two cars much more different.

Love the Mad Kow. Also like the yellow.
