Welcome to War and Tactics!    War and Tactics Forum is currently undergoing some modifications that might disable features you are used to. This is unabvoidable as we have to update the forum engine to a new structure that is incompatible with many of the features we had used so far. The good news: WaT will be more secure and stable, and most of the features we uninstalled will be a natural part of the new structure anyway. For the rest we will be looking for solutions.

-snip- Our dog 'Koda' (friend in Lakota language) has been having troubles walking on his right front leg for several months now, due to a breakdown and loss of cartilage in his paw. Now he has been found to have cancer as well, it has already metasticized and is in his lungs. So it shall be farewell for our son of 11 years as we send him to the otherside. -snip-

FACMan, my friend, I cannot be of much help. Just that you know, though, for one "Koda" that has to go, another is going to arrive!

Life´s weird co-incidences (and now try and tell me again this here village is not magic!), without even knowing what the name meant in whatever language, one of the 7 sons of my dog "Locke" ("Curl" in German, for that stange curl of hair on his forehead), we just named him "Koda" (just on behalf of the wish of the 5 yrs old son of his new owner). NOTE, there is no meaning to the word at all in Spanisch, it is a pure random (?) alignement of letters from our POV...

He is now four month old, and here in the village. Timid for starrters, he is now picking up and making friends with everybody, puppy... . If you wish (and it would be a pleasure to do so), I can keep you updated on his development, the picture (he is the one with the head sticking out, 2nd from left) is from the day two month ago (56 days old then) that we named him:

Koda:


The father, "Locke":


Kindest regards,

Our Koda was also quite timid early on, but as his confidence grew, so did his circle of friends.

Below a pic of a Dog & his Duck swimming laps, they would do this for hours at a time.





I am pleased to hear the story of the young Koda, please tell the owners what their dogs name means. Thanks Matt!

So,  I'm getting late going to bed.  My cat has just started having her kittens.  She managed to get pregnant before I had a chance to get her done.  Anyway, so far so good.  She has just had one so far,  will keep you posted on how it goes.  And also post some photos.

I just took this one.  It's not very good, but the best I can do for now.  She had five kittens altogether:

I love being a Canadian.  Did you know that Vancouver has (yet again) been voted the best and most livable city in the world?

Canadians are viewed as about the most civilized people in the world, they only got one problem (from Bushees faction POV, of cause):

Well,  if you any of you ever do come to  Canada,  I hope you'll find the time to visit.

My latest news is that I'm probably moving to the City come late summer.  For work and school purposes.  It's not a permanent move,  just for the one year.  It should be interesting.

Hehe nice stuff, our national day is February 6th (Waitangi Day) and it is usually the national day of protest when the "natives" with very white skin and English names protest about the Europeans "oppressing" them, but it is summer and there is plenty of beer and beaches so no one really cares.
