Thanks, Alan. He won't even lift his head when I talk to him this morning. We can leave in 15 minutes to take him in, but the vet doesn't get in for another 1.5-2 hours.

Good luck Wendy! I hope everything's OK. It's such a helpless feeling when your pet is sick and you don't know what's wrong.

Best of luck, Wendy - he's beautiful, and obviously loved.

Best of luck Wendy

Thanks everyone! Max is home tonight -- they think that something is wrong with his back. He's got medication and we're keeping an eye on him over the weekend. Best case scenario would be muscle spasms. We'll see what happens over the next couple of days.

Hang in there. I know that our dogs are a part of the family and they get fussed over just as much as anyone else. To the good, they have a constitution and spirit that's tougher than nails. My bet is Max will be just fine.
03/18/2010 10:01:14 PM · #107
Wendy, so glad that Max seems to be OK now that he's been checked out. Give him a hug and doggie treat from us! Susan, Druli and Lily

My brother has a yellow lab and at one point, they took him to the vet because he was so lethargic and it seemed as though his tail was broken or something, the way it just hung there. Turns out he broke his "wag". Seriously. Happens when they overexert - he'd been swimming all day with other dogs. They get muscle spasms in their backs/tails, and their "wag" breaks. It took a few days of rest, but he got his wag back!

Hope your puppy gets better soon, Wendy!

And on a different note, how dark is this on your monitor?

Wendy... hope Max makes a quick and full recovery.

Deb... on my monitor, that's too dark.

Thanks everyone!! Max is doing remarkably better. He even wanted to play this morning, but I had to tell him no (vet said to keep him quite).

Deb, it looks dark here, but only a little bit too dark...
03/20/2010 10:33:01 AM · #111
Wendy, so glad Max is feeling better, wanting to play is always a good sign! Funny that a dog can actually break its wag, never would have thought that possible.

Deb, your shot does look quite dark on my monitor. However this monitor is not calibrated.

I had occasion to be invited along by a friend of mine who contacted a model through Model Mayhem. She was a lovely and delightful young woman to work with, and I was pleased with the results.....

If you would care to view a few pics from the shoot and give me your impressions, I'd appreciate it. I'm trying to learn this whole portrait thing.....

If you can give a brother down on his luck some tips on how you did this, that'd be great. I've already failed miserably at trying to get the "flag thing" to work on my page. It's really dispicable, seeing as I'm a programmer by trade. (But it's that boring, geeky C# stuff...)

Guess I'm just an HTML dufus.

Thanks for the comment -- you mentioned something about color -- here are the resized original and the final entry for comparison. I notice the print mage seems to be in between -- don't know what's up with that ... :-(

I'm pretty much sucking at product. Unfortunately, it's because it's dull and boring, not because it's unique and different.

Sucking full steam ahead with 4.2 and 4.0 in Night Shot and Product, respectively. (not respectfully)
