I just had the damn panic attack of a lifetime.

I was making my rounds, and was cruising through the hospital parking lot (we have a well on site). I did notice the lot was dead, as was everything else...

Then I see this object dart out from between two cars, and was able to recognize those dual umbrella handles and that there was a lump in it, covered in a blue blanket, right as I heard the deafening crunch that baby stroller made under my front right wheel.

I lost my freaking mind.

Then I found out, the baby's mother had brought him to the ER for a fever that wouldn't go down. She had just taken the little baby boy out of his stroller and placed him in his carseat, and could only figure that it must've taken off rolling when she dropped the diaper bag and blanket in it, and turned around to buckle her baby in.

There was no baby in the stroller.

Oh, geeze. I'll bet that took a couple years off your life. That would set me back a couple hours of shock. How horrible for you.

Donnie Downer alert .
Dads last boxer died last night , We bought a brother and sister back in 01-02 ish , Lucy was a red boxer but she skirted the fence and got hit so that left max , shortly after mom bought dad a boston terrier so max would have a buddy . max was a damn good dog , he stayed right by mom when she was dying and even brought him to moms funeral . After mom he stayed with dad during his depression then the new girl moved in and did not like dogs so dad sent max and molly over to my sisters where he died .
Boxers are very good dogs but they have issues , max had seizures and we think he had some heart problems which we think he had a heart attack , I am going to miss the 90lb goof ball but I am not looking forward to digging that big hole for him .
Why is it when ever a pet dies we always say no more but we always get another just to repeat the process ?
Well he is up with his sister and my mom doing that wiggle that boxers do .
Know I have posted this before but I like it .

Quote:
A man and his dog were walking along a road.
The man was enjoying the scenery,
when it suddenly occurred to him that he was dead.

He remembered dying, and that the dog walking beside him had been dead for years.
He wondered where the road was leading them.

After a while, they came to a high, white stone wall along one side of the road.

It looked like fine marble..

At the top of a long hill, it was broken by a tall arch that glowed in the sunlight.

When he was standing before it, he saw a magnificent gate in the arch that looked like mother-of-pearl, and the street that led to the gate looked like pure gold.

He and the dog walked toward the gate, and as he got closer, he saw a man at a desk to one side.
When he was close enough, he called out, 'Excuse me, where are we?'

'This is Heaven, sir,' the man answered.

'Wow! Would you happen to have some water?' the man asked.

'Of course, sir. Come right in, and I'll have some ice water brought right up.'

The man gestured, and the gate began to open. 'Can my friend,' gesturing toward his dog, 'come in, too?' the traveller asked.

'I'm sorry, sir, but we don't accept pets.'

The man thought a moment and then turned back toward the road and continued the way he had been going with his dog.

After another long walk, and at the top of anoth er long hill, he came to a dirt road leading through a farm gate that looked as if it had never been closed.

There was no fence.

As he approached the gate, he saw a man inside, leaning against a tree and reading a book....


'Excuse me!' he called to the man. 'Do you have any water?'

'Yeah, sure, there's a pump over there, come on in.'

'How about my friend here?' the traveller gestured to the dog.

'There should be a bowl by the pump,' said the man.

They went through the gate, and sure enough, there was an old-fashioned hand pump with a bowl beside it..

The traveller filled the water bowl and took a long drink himself, then he gave some to the dog.

When they were full, he and the dog walked back toward the man who was standing by the tree.

'What do you call this place?' the traveller asked.

'This is Heaven,' he answered.

'Well, that's confusing,' the traveller said.

'The man down the road said that was Heaven, too.'

'Oh, you mean the place with the gold street and pearly gates? Nope. That's hell.'

'Doesn't it make you mad for them to use your name like that?'

'No, we're just happy that they screen out the folks who would leave their best friends behind.'
