Well...just called home for a bit and got some news from my mom. One of the dogs (Dallop) that we had for 15 years is now dead.
...kinda sad actually...he was bitten by a cobra near the eye last night and passed the next day b4 they could get her to medical help. This has happened in the past b4 but we've always managed to get her to the vet on time and sometimes its just the "spit" of the cobra. Guess its just bad timing and the old age that got to him. Darn.....i'll miss him.
