Unfortunately it is now true. Losing to the Cubs passed the honor on to the Tribe. Maybe we need a new strip where Bucky uses a Cleveland hat.
Long live Guyere!
Or Roger Staubach, Bart Starr, …..
How about adding 2 points if you can hit the upright and bounce it back through the goal post (I’ve seen it done once and it took a replay for the refs to figure out if it was good or not if I recall the play correctly).
Could it be some “stewed” apples? If you add a little cinnamon it makes a great base for a good apple crisp.
Having been down this ultimately sad road some years ago with my first cat (Gus) and having him not like getting his fluids (at the time only every other day, near the end he was up to 200 ml of Ringer’s Lactate every day) I’ll offer the suggestion that one of the vet techs made when Gus wouldn’t let me give him his fluids early on. That suggestion was to get the smelliest canned fish based cat food I could find. Set up the line then give him the food (I used a bathroom for this job so he couldn’t run away from me). Let him start eating, then put the needle in and start the flow (I was using a 1" #18 needle which is a fairly large needle). Yes, there were nights that I got hissed at when I stuck him, but he always went back to eating and didn’t seem too bothered by the needle and line (sort of like a protest of "I hate what you are doing to me, but I love the food and don’t want to be disturbed while I eat). We were able to keep him going with periodic adjustments in the timing and quantity of fluids given for over 3.5 years before he finally passed from the kidney failure and other complications. He was one month short of being 17 when he passed in late April 2005.
Love Leo as much as he will let you. Tell him he is a good boy and give him pets every chance you get (especially when the treatment equipment isn’t around), so he knows in his own way that the needle and line aren’t punishment for anything he has done. It is hard watching the decline, but give him the treatments he can have a good quality of life until nearly the end. You will be able to tell when you get there. Near the end I was always hoping that I would get home from work one day and find him at his final peace to avoid that final decision.
Although, Offal seems to be catching a glimpse of something coming in from the right in the last panel. Could it be a mobile “recruiting” office and the old man that told Pilot to say he was 12 knew it was coming their direction?
I haven’t heard that jingle in decades. I love the rewording.
My condolences on the loss of your mother in law. Yes, your husband and his sister made the right decision. However, even the right decision can be very very hard and painful in a case like this.
But what about the cats right to know everything going on in their domain.
