Catching up - Toby News : That fight on the 3rd of this month? The next day I took him to the vet because he was limping badly. After a thorough checkup, the vet determined that he either had a slipped disc in his neck or a pinched nerve there. Not good. Gave him anti-inflammatory pills for a week, and he was walking normally on the second day. I'm hoping it was just a pinched nerve making the front leg hurt. Slipped disc is a not good thing.

Toby and Maggie are getting along better. We are trying to break Maggie of her bullying by shouting NO at her whenever she barks or growls at Toby, then praising them both when she is quiet. She'll figure it out. She is already showing signs of improvement.

We were considering getting an Asus EEE 1000H for Sara, but with this leaky pipes issue we'll hold off and see how the finances look next month, perhaps. We may end up waiting for the tax refund next year, at which point the 1000H may be far cheaper or no longer available. We'll see.

I want the new Gateway P-7811 FX Edition gaming laptop, but that must wait even longer as it is $1500 or so. We'll wait for our tax refund for this one as well, most likely.
