Thanks, Alea. It was peaceful. The vet and his assistant were both incredibly kind. They explained everything to me, and then after they'd put in the catheter, they let me hold him as long as I wanted. He was calm and quiet when the time came. Unfortunately, the catheter hadn't gone in correctly, so...

I walked/ran (mostly walked) a 10k (6.2 miles) today as part of the Fargo Marathon. I have never walked more than four miles before. The crowd cheering on the way in and crossing the finish line was the most amazing thing ever.


I am so sore and so tired.

Hey Gals! (And Guys!)

Do people use the word "gal" or "gals" where you live? Unironically? I'd forgotten about that word's existence before I moved back up to North Dakota. It's much more common than anywhere else I've lived. I'm curious, are there other regions where it's in reasonably common use?

Cold. Very cold. Still very cold. The car heater has given up entirely.

Even dogeweather.com 's validation is not cheering me up.

Winter. Must. Die. I'm thinking of starting some kind of hero quest to kill it, somehow. Any volunteers if I do?
