There are three fundamental questions for anyone advocating Brexit:

1. What, precisely, are the significant and tangible benefits of leaving the EU?
2. What damage to the UK and its citizens is an acceptable price to pay for those benefits?
3. Which ruling of the ECJ is most persuasive of the need to leave its jurisdiction?

Oh the irony
My old dog has pretty bad arthritis and as his pain seemed to be worse these last few days, I took him to the vet, who gave me 50mg tablets of tramadol to give him, twice daily. They have clearly worked, as he seemed to think it'd be a good idea to give the cat a run for her money (something he hasn't done for over a year), chased her into the kitchen, where, in an attempt to escape the big lumbering dog, she attemped to jump to safety, onto the work surface. Unfortunatly, she didn't quite make it, and she whacked her chin on the way down, breaking her jaw.

So that's another vet bill. I'm actually getting embarassed as I'm at the vet so much these days. I suspect they may think I have the hots for the (not objectionable!) main man.

Cat is fine. They wired her jaw, using the incisors as anchoring points. How ingenious!!

Awww!! Poor moggie! And what's the vet's diagnosis of your polar bear's condition? Love-sickness, perhaps?

My friend Tina has been on Tramadol for several months to help combat the pain while she awaits a hip replacement. We are both agreed it seriously messes with her head. I guess the dog is suffering the same.

I hope both your pets are a lot better soon, Getreal! :smile:

The city of Boston considers cats adept at sorting out opposing stories and reaching reasoned conclusions.

10 Canine Commandments.
1 My life is likely to last 12 to15 years, any separation from you will be painful for me, please remember that before you take me on.

2 Give me time to understand what you want from me.

3 Put your trust in me, it's crucial to my well-being.

4 Don't be angry with me, for long you have your work, your hobbies, your friends, I only have you.

5 Talk to me sometimes, even if I don't understand the words, I understand your voice when it's speaking to me.

6 be aware that however you treat me, I wont ever forget.

7 Remember before you hit me, I have teeth and jaws that can crush your bones, but I choose not to bite you.

8 Before you scold me for being un-cooperative, obstinate, or lazy, ask yourself if something might be bothering me, maybe not getting the right food? Not enough exercise, or maybe my heart is getting old and tired.

9 Take care of me when I get old, you too will grow old.

10 Be with me on difficult journeys, never say I can't bear to watch, or let it happen in my absence, Everything is easier for me if you are there.

11. Failing all that, for once give me at least a fair chance of getting the cat.




Actually, Alan, those are really nice thoughts. When you've been away a while, you will always get a welcome from your dog. Never a sulky "Where the hell have you been?" Could you ask for more?
