    Default A sad moment of life :(

    Mum called me last night – her 12 and a half year old rickety lovely gentleman of a flatcoat had to be put down at the vets.

    While I am sad, I am happy that there was no suffering for the dog, and great dealt with at the vets, but very worried about my mum – cannot be nice living alone (widowed) having to clear away his things like bowl and bed.

    Amazing how a pet really is part of the family.

    Think I may pop round with some flowers tonight.

    Why not get her a puppy or does she not wish to have another dog ?

    Forget the flowers. Buy her a puppy, a labradoodle and call it Biscuit.

    If you are buying a puppy, what are the chances it will out live your mum? Do you think she has up to 15 years left in her?
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    Too soon.

    Let her make the decision.

    Flowers - A good idea. What are you going to do when they die...

    No no no - forget the dog, and the flowers - buy her a cruise!!!! For the first time in years she's free to travel - get her booked up on a OAP's trecking adventure or something - ideally one where a lot of people are single.

    It'll give her a new lease of life!!

    And also, stop posting on here and actualy get yourself over to her house to help her with the dog's stuff!

    lets review the evidence here.

    does she like flowers ? -unproven
    does she like biscuits ? -unknown
    does she like cruises ? - unknown
    does she like Wilmslow ? - who does


    ergo, ipso facto - buy her a puppy
