Hmm...that's a good point. I guess I always assume that it's not strep because every time I've been tested in the past when they assume I have strep...it has NEVER been strep. But I suppose that doesn't mean I'll never get it!

Yep, that'd be Pepi. It's awful when we're in the indoor arena and snow/ice is falling from the roof - poor guy doesn't know WHAT to do. He's the sweetest, most polite, and trusting horse I've met at that barn yet. I don't have have to ask him for his hoof when I'm grooming him... I just stand next to the leg I want to work on, and he picks it up for me. I don't think he has a mean bone in his body! But he is neurotic. He wouldn't even stop onto the rubber mat that was in one of crosstie areas. He was terrified of it.

Funny, when you addreas the "real" issue with a dog, the change is miraculous.
Our incoming foster, an owner surrender because of separation anxiety and "overall temperament" problems.
He had an injured eye as well. When our vet examined the eye, the pressure was 50+. Normal is 20. Sadly, the eye had to be removed.
Since then, no anxiety and this dog only wants to cuddle.
The eye had to be "pure agony" according to the vet.

Ok. The days of 'Nice Nurse Nancy' are gone. My first clue? When I handed hubby his shirt and deodorant and he lifted his arm for me to put it on him.

My reply? I dropped them on his lap and said, "Suck it up, Buttercup."

Anyone ever have a phone interview before? Not sure what to expect.

Yes. Its going to be a lot like a regular interview. Some of the questions may go a tad more in depth since they can't actually see you.

I thought you said his LEG was broken? Or am I wrong?

Poor Mike.
Maybe I should send him some buttercups.

Oh no.... that poor dog Hopefully now he gets the chance to go to a home where his people will spoil him rotten and actually try to keep him comfortable and healthy.

I swear, he and Jereme really are the same person... He got a hairline ankle fracture a month or so ago and went from manly man to completely helpless. He even asked me to put the toothpaste on his toothbrush for him.

Greydusk-- I prefer phone interviews! Much more comfortable. I have a hard time with eye contact, etc though so maybe it's just me, haha

That is funny. I had a hairline fracture in my leg from DH not fixing the cellar step and it came out from under me. Luckily it was the third one from bottom so it was only my leg. I had a lump, limped for a couple days and never knew it was broke until a broke my ankle a few weeks later. Boys are funny.

On a side note, I read a study that women are more capable of handling pain, possibly evolved from childbirth. That doesn't explain why I throw up every time I stub my toe.
