RIP Penny..our little rescue from Arizona.  Had her almost 6 years, her health had been in decline for a while from liver problems, a bad hip and leg..her quality of life was declining.  I know it was the right thing to do, but never an easy decision.  Sweet little 6 lb Yorkie girl...

Sorry the time with her was so short. Will toast her tonight. Wishing you all the best Robert.

Our Alaska way Viaduct is coming down now that the undercity tunnel is done and open.

Thank God.  Just like the double decked freeway at the Embarcadero in San Francisco was taken down, the Seattle waterfront ought to look way better with the viaduct down.  When did the tunnel become operative and how many lanes does it have in each direction?

I was amazed at how long the light rail from the airport to downtown takes because it veers over to the southeast side of the city (Rainier Beach, etc.) before angling back up to downtown.  I'm not complaining since I used to take the articulated bus to and from the airport from the east side and it meandered along I-405 and through Renton streets, all to be civic minded and save money.

When is the light rail supposed to cross over to the east side and up to Northgate?  It needs to go even further north but neither county north and south of King Co. has funds going toward the light rail, IIRC.

All these shoehorned cities like San Francisco and Seattle decide to upgrade infrastructure WAY AFTER the growth and gridlock has occurred.  Better late than never.

@trinacriabob

The tunnel become functional and in use this past January 2019. Demolition of the Viaduct began in May. All next week they will destroy the section next to my work at First and King Street.

The Lite Rail planners wanted to increase use by the Rainer Beach area, but sadly it was clearly a mistake as the folks living there do not use it as much as expected and so it increased the cost and time to get from the airport to Downtown seattle. Lite Rail from Seattle to the East side along with to the north end being Lynnwood will go live in 2024.

Thank you ... thank you.  I love it.  So, then, Snohomish and Pierce Counties are in on the deal.  Good to see it might eventually reach Everett and Tacoma, respectively.

I'm having trouble envisioning light rail to Issaquah, to the base of the "Issaquah Alps."  You'd think NIMBY.  I remember misty, foggy mornings having breakfast when there were empty fields near the Bob's Big Boy that was once there.

It was amazing to ride it from Downtown (Westlake station) to the new University of Washington station in all of about 6 minutes.  In gridlock, driving that can take 36 ... or 46 minutes.

Also, Fife is a great name for a dog!

So two days after having to PTS Penny, I'm at the vet for routine vaccinations and the vet discovers a heart murmur in Zo, our 13yr old Yorkie boy.  Had him 7 years on July 1st.  After an x-ray, the doctor believes he has an enlarged heart and early signs of congenital heart disease...managable w/ meds...I got some meds for him and will be going back next week for blood work.  Not a good week...

The pack is doing well... Zo is doing fine, he is on 4 different medications daily for an enlarged heart and spleen issue.  But eating well and lots of energy for a 13 yr old.

Here's a recent pic of the pack exiled to the back patio while I was cleaning the living room...

Can’t wait for the fad of calling animals ‘children’ to be done with.

Nope never gonna happen. Dogs especially but I have heard this with cats also all my life they are children to those that choose to NOT have human children and even in families with human children, you have you animal children.

IMHO, Dogs are the best Children families can have as they love ya no matter what in all stages of life.

What kind/breed are they?  I find that always has something to do with it.

All three are Lhasa Apso. Very stubborn, but loyal dogs. 🙂 They also have more human like hair, which doesn't make me sneeze like crazy like around most other dogs..

I'll have to find a picture of them...

@daves87rs  When dogs annoy me, which is rare, it's usually large, clumsy dogs or small pampered yappy dogs, especially the kind that get taken to the groomer.  I much prefer the medium sized breeds of herding/working dogs.  If trained correctly, they really listen to their owners.

If you get a dog with a great personality and high intelligence, consider yourself blessed.  They make a great addition to most households and, for some people, such as the elderly and the disabled, they are God's gift to them.  I'm not on board with calling them "children" even though, for some people, they function as children and they are free to call them whatever they want.  For me, it was always "my dog."

@ocnblu I hear plastic surgery is really good now in Korea. You can get a quality face lift there. 😛
