    Sorry for your loss. :( It’s always tough to lose a fur baby.

    Piste Off, so so sorry for your loss. Saints take a piece of your heart when they go.

    He always wanted to be in touch with one of his humans. He was a 185lb cuddle pup who was most content when in physical contact with one or more of us. He lived in @Nitrobunny ’s back pocket.

    on happier note .. our current foster picked up yesterday night .. was only -10 below when Kimba got here.

    today our high was -16F ... and luckily our furnace guy was able to get a mother board to fix the furnace that failed Monday night.

    with another cold night outside, Kimba I'm sure is happy the house is warm again!

    Another 13 yr old ... previous owners gave up when wife got a job further out and she was home 12 hrs a day alone. Owner noted upon handoff that wife didn't come for fear of breaking down in tears. one super sweet little girl.

    There is something terribly jarring about this sentence.

    well, keeping with the dog theme - "leave sleeping dogs lie" and not spoken "ohh, record cold next few days .. watch our furnace break" coming into house Monday early evening that. Maybe I subconsciously noted fire up failures prior.

    Anyhow, all is good and we're toasty. Wednesday's high here I heard was -16F for a record.

    Kept the module (motherboard) to play around with it, do some inspections to see if it's a solder joint, low supply, bad relay, etc .. maybe a Tin Whisker event. I previously unplugged and plugged in connector/harnesses in hope it was simply oxidation - but appears not to be.

    I never set out to find the perfect dog when we went looking to rescue but instead I wanted to give one dog a perfect life. As Jeff said he lived in my back pocket. Severely limited by all kinds of allergies and neurological issues he couldn’t run and play but he was all about the cuddle. We started and ended every day, snuggled up on the couch for at lest an hour or more. Losing both Samson and Wolfgang in under two years has been killer. I am just shattered. My career was always so past paced and intense, they both thought me to slow down, take a nap and bark at the occasional squirrel. I’m not ashamed to admit that I like dogs more than I like most people.

    I remember that picture - it was heart-wrenching. Sorry you’re going through this again so soon.

    pushing for the happy .... our current foster (on right) and two family members. Ok, I'll admit they're still getting a bit used to sharing a hunkered down spot but this happenstance gives me hope:

    Our not-so-little pup, Nyx. She is a lab/St. Bernard mix. Eight months old now and weighs ten times that. She's a love, though.

    If you walk your dog around Lake Tahoe (40"+ new last night 90" + in past week) now this problem is likely ! . .
