This is Maggie -
She is almost as good at dust collection as the CT22  [wink]

(Attachment Link)

Is she fitted with the longlife filter bag?

If she is anything like my German Shepherd from five decades past, she rolls in the dust so she can get vacuumed down. My German Shepherd loved it when we vacuumed his coat.

Yes - she has her own hat - she insisted!

Sort of - it lasts for a year and then she grows a new one.

Almost - two of her favorite things are the water hose and the air hose.
She occasionally gets her coat blown off if it is real bad - the resulting dust cloud kind of looks like Pigpen (from the Charlie Brown cartoon).

Another tale about our Maggie.  She was a Golden and every afternoon, as i backed my truck/trailer into the yard, she would wait very patiently until I had parked, unloaded both truck and trailer and any of the other chores i might have to do.  Once i had my time books, thermose and whatever in my hands and started walking towards the house, she would run up to me and take something from me to carry into the house. most often, it was my hat.  She did this from the time she first came to us as an abused 7 month puppy until only a few days before she passed on at nearly 17 years.  the last couple of years, she would walk up to me, take whatever goodie I might give her and turn and run.  My unloading point was on a rise from the house and there was a rightangled bend about 1/2 the way.  as she would get to the bend, she would not slow down.  Her reflexes and conditioning was not what it once had been and as she would be about 1/4 the way into her turn, her hind legs would swing around and nearly pass her front end, at the point of being crosswise to her direction, she would tumble and roll, falling on her side.  It was almost as if she had practiced and she would roll back onto her feet and continue her "job".  It was asd to watch her performance, but it was harder to see the look she would give me if i tried to stop her.

Meet Louis...





Head of my building site security, at least that's what I'm paying him for...
As long as the burglar doesn't bring another dog with him, he doesn't care.

I should reconsider his wage: two meals and an hour of walking a day, you have to do a lot more then just getting a tan to earn that kind of money...

PS: that's me in the back swinging that hamer.

I'm sure speed will explain but its a 110 volt multi socket. The yellow box is a 110 transformer and the flying saucer an extension cable reel. Now I want an explanation as to why they have 110v on site in the UK?

Health and safety. 110 don't kill you.

Umm  yeah it can just less likely than 240v.   Most the time 240v won't kill you either  you just have to be unlucky.   Touch wood I have been lucky about 10x when I have had a 240 shock.    The only danger is really if it gets hold of you so a
RCD should be used so this can not happen.

 240v with RCD is just as safe as 110v but  these stupid big site don't allow it even though your are actually aloud 240v with
RCD by law on site.    Just no big sites allow it.     I hate 110v and refuse to go down that route.  

 Just like Dean said why is their a 240 lead next to the 110v transformer in the picture  defeats the object.
This happens a lot on all the jobs I go on 240v leads ever where and then people have 110v transformers running their tools all because if they get a job on site they need 110v tools.     Ideally you buy 2 of every tool 110v and 240v soo you can work on site and off site.


I personally went down the 240v route because of two main reason
1. The tools are more powerful and run smoother  
2. I hate carrying transformers about they are heavy and a pain.

Other reasons are you get a lot of power drop with 110v if some 1 else starts a tool up on the same lead 240 or 110 your tools looses power.  If you have lights running on 110v they keep dimming when you start a tool up.  To over come this you need a bigger and more powerfull transformer or multiple transformers more stuff to carry about.     Bigger transformers are really heavy.

Meet Chili.  Not much of a shop dog as he's afraid of every power tool known to man and moreso when said power tools are in my hands.  I thought they were supposed to trust us unconditionally...I don't think he's read the contract!  His idea of play and my idea of play are two different things.  He also has no sense when it comes to what he chews and swallows.  Still waiting for a plastic bag from last week to make it's way out one end or the other.  He's 3 now, so there is little hope he'll develop a better sense of judgement.  He's in his feeding chair below (has to be spoon fed vertically and stay that way for long enough for the food to get to the tummy).  The chair packs flat in 30 seconds for traveling.  Need to build him something more permanent when I get time.

Chili reminds me of my card carrying Golden - MacGyer.  Loving dog - LOVES THE FOG - but after that...  He won't eat table scraps that he deems too hard, and will pick thru his dog food and eat the softer morsels first.  PS.  I attribute his behavior that I can understand to the fact that he is half British Golden Retriever.  [big grin]

He is the only of my 10+ dogs that did not need to start out in a crate and he has never destroyed anything.  Probably too hard.  [scared]

The nerves or muscles in his esophagus and/or the valve between the stomach and esophagus don't work as intended.  Feeding a liquid diet, metering the rate of feed and allowing gravity to do the rest will get the food into his stomach.  If we don't do this, the food pools in his esophagus and nausea sets in.  It's a vicious cycle because the nausea causes excessive saliva production which also pools in the esophagus.  Typically we would have to withhold all food and water for 24 hours until the nausea subsides.  Dogs with this condition (undiagnosed) will either starve to death or get aspiration pneumonia from the regurgitation cycles caused by the food pooling in the esophagus.  Even diagnosed, some will suffer the same fate.

What some do for their pets?
I had never heard of that esophogus problem.  glad it was diagnosed properly. Ingenious feeding solution.
The last two years we had our Maggie, we spent more at the vet than for both my wife and me for our own MD's

This winter, or daughter was visiting when she noticed her "baby" 100# Yellow Lab was not acting right.  It was late at nite, but she decided not to wait til morrning to find a vet.  she found one about 30 miles away and rushed him there.  They told her the dogs stomach had flipped.
They operated immediately.  They had to unsnarl the stomach and then sew it in place somehow so it would not move again. 
Along with epilepsy and dislocated shoulder and the emergency op, I think she has spent more on her dog than her car.

But, the dog is happy and still playful.

TINKER - My dog Toby, before he was my dog, while he was at a Lab Rescue, had the same stomach condition. It is called bloat and is often fatal.  Thankfully they were able to help my dog and your daughters too. People should monitor their K9 friends closely and take immediate action if the dog is not acting "normally".

So sad but he looks really happy and healthy.

I don't believe any one should have a pet if they can't fully commit to them when needed.  Financially and personally.  I think a dog is like having a permanent child and you wouldn't neglect a child.

Sometimes, owners or the vets try to save ???'s when performing the operation and just push everything back into place and sewing the animal back up.  If they do that, the bloat will return and lights out.  The vet our daughter found in the middle of the nite explained that it is very important to (anchor) the stomach so it won't happen again. I went with her when she went to pick up her "baby" and was very impressed with the patience the vet had in explaining once again about the entire procedure and the assurances he gave her even tho it is very likely they would never see each other again.  Not every vet (or people docs) will be that thoro and patient.

Last year alone, one of my guys cost $5,000 with stem cell therapy for a spondylosis, very painful and debilitating spinal condition.  He's still with me and has a very beautiful spirit.  He never fails to let me know that he appreciates being rescued and being given a loving "forever" home.

Check out this link from the Australian Broadcasting Commission; our BBC.
All free, our Australian Taxes at work!

You will need their 'Iview app', and will need to watch on a tablet/phone if in NA as may not work on non PAL televisions.
On the link, press on the 'Watch On Iview' prompt and follow the download links. Well worth it for animal lovers, and those interested in animal welfare.

Be warned, if watching Ep 5, you will need tissues! But it is probably the one to watch if you only view one ep.

OMG, Those eyes remind me of a long gone school teacher i once knew.  She was actually a very good friend of the family, but she was a very strict, but very fair, teacher.  i never got to be in any of her classes as she taught high school and i only went thru the 8th grade before moving away.  it was a small school, so everybody knew everybody else.  i was pretty well know as being in fairly constant trouble and a problem for most of my teachers.

I would get into fights, whether inside, or out on the playground.  Due to difference in space and schedule, Mrs. K never got to me when i was outside and stirring up trouble.  She did, however, catch me quite often wen i was promoting an inside scuffle.  I would be well into a commotion when, all of a sudden, i would hear from behind, "That will do TINK."

All activity would immediately cease.  usually, the other person would suddenly be gone.  BUT, I would be left standing, feeling totally naked, in front of THE STARE.  I would try to dig a hole right into the floor as THE STARE continued to bore right thru me.  The woman never said another word.  When i was finally melted and nothing but a blob, she would finally turn around and walk away.  I was done for the day. A total mess.

Other teachers would just send me to the principal's office.  Mrs. K never felt that need.

Once i had moved away from my Uncle's farm, i still went back nearly every weekend i could.  I often, under less troublesome and authoritative circumstances, stop to visit with Mrs. K and her family.  she was really a lot of fun and had a laugh you could hear five miles away.  BUT, those eyes.  OMG, i can never forget.

Oh, BTW, does your dog rule?  [unsure]
