    My wife just keeps on adding to the list by the side of the fridge. I cross jobs done, and new ones appear.

    I guess it's been 5 years now. I was a member of the forum at the time and mentioned it (I think). It was a mild one, a wake up call really. I've gotten a few boats built since then and plenty of other stuff. They are life changing, but you adapt, adjust and eat more fish.

    Unfortunately, the smallest of my 4 dogs is 75 pounds, though I understand your point.

    Ahhh, so the problem is we keep too large dogs :D I bet the quack told you the same thing ;)

    We have a beeeg red cat with a problem in the one eye, some squirting insect aparently (the vet can see these things). The wife makes me put eye drops in it every friggin two hours. I tell you, when those nails come out I feel like getting a heart attack :D

    Two words Fanie, "Diagonal Cutters". Actually if you wrap the cat in a heavy towel, then mash it down with your body weight, the claws aren't as likely to get you (wussie). A good, sharp shot or two, in the back of the head with a wooden soup spoon or rubber mallet, should make is tame enough for a few minutes to get some drops in it's eyes. How about letting the cat out, the next time you see some wild dogs wandering the neighborhood.

    For God's sake that way over kill 'Lubber, a claw hammer (seems some how proper doesn't it) at say 20 f/sec is more then enough to make brain pudding.

    Some garlic, a little salt, say an hour at 350 degrees, tastes like chicken . . .

    Or if there happens to be some pesting carnivores around the best way to hide the human smell in trapps (or strychnine) is cat crease ;)
