    Ask your vet first. If it may be an issue, they might keep her an extra day and then you could just take off Friday if necessary.

    If you have a secure, small spot for her recuperation, she should...

    Wow, nhwr, where are you that public school teachers average that much? My nephew just started teaching earning $44k. I retired not making nearly that much after a sixth year degree and 27 years in...

    It is a complex problem. In your case it is made more difficult in that your school appears to lack a cohesive grading policy. And that policy needs to be understood by all and appropriately...

    She should figure out squatting - if not, call the vet! Figure you will spend a lot of time on the floor since that is where your dog must stay. I used an ex pen for my small dog to restrict him in...

    It may be hard to face the facts, but the dogs your groomer saw would never be "good as new". They tore a ligament that would ever heal together just as before. So comparing to uninjured dogs is...

    LOL! Glad I'm not the only one. Scorpion in the glove bests my wasp in the shoe - though getting stung under my big toenail sucked! But I have to say dislocating a shoulder to save a pot "wins" ...

    And the buyer's situation is a big part of the amount of angst. If you are buying your horse to pursue your equestrian aspirations, the PPE is nerve-wracking. When you can only afford one horse and...

    First, I think you need to learn to pause. When a request is made, don't immediately answer because too often your wish to be accommodating will lead you to agree even when you would rather not. So...

    I think he will be fine at current stable.

    However you may want a different stable. Sometimes new owners need that to feel that the horse is really theirs. If you do choose to move, make very...

    I lock my house even though I live in a low crime area. Just seems a reasonable precaution. I would feel really bad if my house was burglarized through an unlocked door.

    I liked the gift cards. But like many here, it was the note that was treasured. A thoughtful note detailing specific reasons why you are thankful for that teacher is the best gift. Really.

    Our local Red Cross chapter used to have this stuff to loan. Not sure if they still do this since they reorganized and took a lot of control away from local chapters. Still might be worth a look.
