    Also, if any of you PS4 owners are looking for a new game, try Witcher 3. Haven't picked up Destiny or Fallout 4 since I started playing. Incredible game.

    Aww man, I feel for ya. 😩
    I had a Brazilian fila that was THE BEST DOG EVER.
    He was like a kid and best friend rolled into a big golden/fawn package.

    I've been lurking on bladeforums for years, and I remember your avatar from years ago because of your cool rottie pic.
    Joining the crowd in hoping for the best.
    It sucks big time that the silly purse dogs get damn near 20 years (they're not bad dogs), while the big boys are lucky if they make it past 11...
    There's just something about Molossers (Bulldogs, mastiffs, and mountain dogs) that make them the best.

    That looks good! My wife makes an awesome Pho too. We don't really need to cook it much as there is some variation of Vietnamese Pho place on every corner around here lol. The one I grew up with is about 15min away drive, but I could also walk to the one my wife loves the most in 5 min lol.

    Its true, that stuff is my cure-all. If I'm sick I head straight there for a bowl!

    Damn it... now I want some.

    Gus, my thoughts go out to you, Triggs, and especially Oz. Wishing him a good prognosis and hopefully a quick recovery.

    For those who commented on the fishing pic, I was down on Tybee Island east of Savannah.
    Work took me down there, and I stayed an extra day to go fishing on the island.
    All I caught was whiting, but I had a good day out. Gorgeous weather and salt air.

    On gators...
    There was a gator pond at the restaurant where I stopped for lunch Saturday. Saw 30-40 little ones.
    Ran seven miles Sunday, part of which was around a gator-filled lake.

    Very nice! It's about an hour for me to the nearest pho, so I have learned to make it myself. I just wish I could get some sliced tendon around here...I suppose I'm going to have to head down to Austin and get some at an Asian food market. None of the Korean places around here carry it.

    Hey folks,

    Can't thank you guys enough for your incredibly kind words.

    Our vet friend dropped by yesterday and did an exam. Her assessment was not super positive. She knows Oz and she is much more comfortable opening his mouth to find the source of the bleeding – a nickel-size sore on the inside of his upper right canine. She took a cell sample that she sent to the lab today. In some ways it was good news as we now know that the blood is not coming from his throat. We should have the results from that sample in a day or two. If it's inconclusive, she said that we should go through with the biopsy. She also looked at the eye. That caused her more concern. She felt that it was a secondary manifestation of what may be a malignant tumor.

    We've known her for decades and she was very honest; chemo is not particularly effective and removing a large section of the jaw in an effort to get rid of the tumor may not work if the cancer has already spread. We weren't going to go through with those options either way. If our big boy is checking out, he's doing it with his dignity intact!

    Our vet friend was supposed to go to a hockey game later that day, but she stuck around with us and we went to a bar and got drunk. Well, Triggs and I got drunk.

    So, we have an appointment with an ophthalmologist tomorrow to look at the eye.

    I want to thank all of you again for the support. It means a lot to us.

    Here's hoping for the best Gus. Never had a dog as an adult, but always had one as a kid. I know how close one can get to their pet.

    Any chance it is a bad infection Gus ? Its making me sick thinking of Oz having a tumor.

    Hey guys,

    I can assure you that no one is hoping that the vets are wrong more than we are right now!

    Either way, Oz is going to have a great life regardless of how many more days/weeks/months he has left. We are hoping for years!

    Anyway, enough with this somewhat depressing talk. Let's get to more uplifting topics like knives, fishing, guns and good food!

    I'll keep you folks posted.
