@ Jim,
How did you send the hat? By regular post and is there any sort of tracking on it? Just curious, I want to make sure it doesn't get lost on the way.

Gute Besserung!

Hope the doc prescribes you a massage by 2 fine, lightly clad redheads - though it's more likely the masseuse is a russian ex-weightlifter!
Probably you'll only get an injection to relax the muscles.

If you do a lot of heavy lifting you should also check for special back training, your intervertrebal disks will thank you.

Use the sick leave to regenerate, I'll do the same after my comparible hellish work week. I have some days off untill Monday - as soon as I am out of this madhouse today I will turn off the phone, submerge into my cave and do a video and game marathon.

Dankeschön Penguin

Luckily it's not the backbone. I sprained a muscle on my right side of the back. Hurts like hell but should be better within days. I just need to rest.

And I could use an ex-soviet weightliftin champion, I need a heavy duty massage to unravell my nerves and straighten my spine and then thinly clad redhaired maseuses (spelling?) to relax me

Can someone please do me a favor? Repeat after me: "Hottentot, you are an idiot."

I never feed my dog bones. Never. Except this once. I got a bone as a gift from my mother. And not just any old bone, but a pig's leg bone, bought from a petshop, packed and all. And I still said no, I'm not going to feed my dog bones and that's it. But then again: why would they sell them if they were dangerous, right? Right? Yeah, I guess...

Well if I should have learned anything at work, it is that you don't bloody [expletive, expletive, expletive] guess when it comes to an animal's health [expletive, expletive, expletive]!!

Long story short, a small piece got stuck in his intestines and it was veterinary time for us. The worst is over, he will get better. Doesn't change the fact that I was a bloody idiot, putting my idiotic emotions before my freaking best friend's well being.

At the moment I literally hate myself. That's not a figure of speech.

Good to hear you're dog is allright.

One question, how did that happened. I feed my dog bones all the time and he's 11 and still OK

Could be just bad luck. You know, when you do for the first time something you don't ever do, because you know it carries risks.

But if I had to offer an explanation, I'd simply say: a retriever. A retriever that loves to eat and isn't too picky on how it eats. Just bites off a huge chunk and swallows it, goes down the throat but doesn't come out of the rear. The pieces he has now been popping out of his rear end are about the size of a finger's tip. Have that turn somewhere the wrong way and it might get stuck.

What got my attention was that he started whining after doing his stuff in the bushes, and the end product was bloody. And sure enough, some of the pieces have also been sharp. They have most likely made small wounds in his intestines, but nothing that wouldn't heal with time.
