I recently had to say goodbye to my friend of 19 years, Pluto.He was a little white poodle. Needless to say it was the hardest thing I've ever done but something good did come out of it. I found Henry,another little white poodle, at an animal sheter in Weld County, Colorado. He had been there over a month and I couldn't figure out why. Anyway I took him home and he was on his best behavior for a couple weeks and then one day I figured out why he was there for so long.

Henry has turned out to have a split personality. Turns out that he likes to bark and growl whenever the mood strikes him. So, o.k., I could deal with that. Then after about a month he started having seizures. Went to the vet and got some doggie downers and so far everything is fine. He really is alot of fun if you like surprises. So after going through all of this health and behavior ups and downs with Pluto, Henry and a few others I decided to document our experiences so that maybe someone could benefit from them.

I just got started and it's pretty slow going but check it out anyway. You could always come back in a day or so for further updates. Go to http://www.healthyhounds.blogspot.com . Let me know what you think. Thanks, Nina
What's with this new (new to me) style of spam? They're coming practically daily. There will be some text, a ... the ads to come from, unusual, it seems, to put so much effort into creating the deceptive ad text. Lia

Do you all have a nice view from way up there above it all? Everyone's entitled to their opinion
but until you are in my shoes and are paying vet bills in the thousands and your friend of nineteen
years is gone and you were the one who had to take care of giving him his last medicine maybe
you shouldn't be so judgemental. I wouldn't wish these circumstances on anybody and if I can try
to supplement my income at a bad time in my life who are you to judge?

Yeah, it's pretty nice.

If I believed you... I think if you'd just come out and asked people to send you money, you'd have fared better than posting indirect spam on newsgroups. It's turning up all over the place, and its main effect is to *** people off. Blogspot.com is getting a bad reputation because of this kind of indirect spam. Too bad for the people with legit, noncommercial blogs there.

Where did you get the idea to spam indirectly, anyhow? How much did you have to pay to have someone set up the website on blogspot and write your posts to usenet? Who is taking your money?

As I said, you have to feel a little bad for the people who get suckered into this stuff, but not that bad.
I'm sorry for your circumstance but you picked a really obnoxious way to try to generate some extra income. Did you really think it would work?

How's it working for you? Making much? Can you think of any other money-making plans that might work better?

I'm on call 24/7 as a locksmith, so no I really don't have much time or energy to try
something else right now. I'm sure there are better ways but until then..
