Recommended Posts

Oh Tammy! You do great and wonderful things. I'm sure there's already a portrait of you hanging in the hall of the doggie gods.

 

I'm sorry you're missing Elsie. She is absolutely beautiful. Her new mommy and daddy look like really nice people.

Long story short, we thought we were going to have to put him to sleep because he couldn't move, we had to spoon feed him water, and manually express his bladder, we finally decided to try one last thing, Acupuncture on him, sure enough he started to respond to the treatment. We ended up keeping him for 2 months until he was able to pee on his own, and move around better, the perm foster home felt that moving him back with them in their 4 dog house hold would only delay his progress. Once he was almost back to normal he went back home with his perm foster family, who actually ended up adopting him. :-) After that we just new we wanted to help more and started fostering on a regular basis.
Wow, what a commitment you've made to these sweet dogs. We are so impressed. We are big believers in acupuncture. My husband was in a helicopter crash several years ago and has a cyst inside his spinal cord. Lately his pain level had been about an 8, but after weekly acupuncture, it's down to a 1!

I'm a big believer of acupuncture, it helped me when I was injured and of course the dog we cared for. I'm glad to hear your husband is responding well to it, it's sad that most insurance companies don't think of acupuncture as a real way to treat people, hopefull that will change in the future. GL to your hubby, I hope he continues to be pain free.

In Kentucky acupuncture isn't readily available. It can only be practiced by a licensed medical physican. I'm glad you had such good luck and so did the puppy. My MOH had a similar situation with her daschund. He became paralyzed after jumping off the couch. They ended up having to fly him to a specialist in Dallas for a $6000 back surgery!

    • Sorry you had to deal with this I hoped it worked out. It seems to be every few months a new store will be in the  'if' stage and to the 'when' stage.  Big businesses like this don't notify the employees or customers before they close down...that would cause even more losses.  One day there are signs on the door and the business is done.  And lots of people (employees and customers...not to mention the creditors that they owe millions to) get screwed immediately with little help to be found anywhere.  Look at alfred angelo, although they had less retail stores than David's Bridal, they may have had more sales than them as a company.  They were the largest manufacturer of dresses and were carried by thousands of independent stores across the world (not just the 60+ branded stores they had).  If you google search Davids Bridal going bankrupt, they are listed on all the sites that post retail stores on life support.  They have more debt than they will be able to service in 2019 and the only question right now is if they'll make it that far.  Once the debt comes due, it's almost a 100% certainty that the company will be done.  But it's also more probable than not that the bankruptcy will happen much sooner than that.  The argument about them getting a new line or how big they are isn't a good argument if you look at the history of how these normally happen.  Alfred Angelo had a brand new line of dresses that never even hit the stores but were made overseas already...those all made their first appearances at the liquidation auctions.  I'm not trying to scare anyone here, but just trying to make sure that people understand that when a company gets to this point, it's definitely a roll of the dice if you are ordering something that you can't take home today.  How much of a risk?  That's hard to say, but I am extremely confident that the pain felt when alfred angelo closed 61 stores will be even greater when Davids Bridal closes 300+ stores…and when there are other great discount dress stores out there like Bridepower or Vows Bridal Outlet on the East Coast or Brilliant Bridal in the West (and plenty of others as well), I don’t think I would personally recommend any of my friends to take that risk!  But that’s just me:)
    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
