Sorry for the deviation into personal stuff, but this is important to me – and I’m pretty devastated. If I don’t post for a while, you can assume I’m taking another spontaneous mental health sabbatical.

Buddy And Ozzy

A picture of my dogs, Buddy (left) and Ozzy (right). This was taken last January, just a week or two prior to Ozzy herniating a disc in his back and being paralyzed. We put Ozzy to sleep today – he just recently started exhibiting signs of extreme pain, and x-rays showed a calcified disc above his paralysis, and he didn’t react well to steroids after his emergency disc surgery. So we decided to do the only thing guaranteed to end his pain.
