Bi-monthly release with minor bug fixes and improvements

Taking time off

Taking time off was created by Jasem Mutlaq

Hello everyone,

Yesterday, I was devastated to the loss of my two dogs. We've been together for years and I love them immensely. Unfortunately, they were lost yesterday due to heat stroke because of high humidity along with playing & exercise which turned out to be a deadly combination. Guilt overcame me and my heart was torn to see Juli & Tommy depart this world right in front of my eyes. I felt so helpless. There are no words to describe my attachment to them. A candle in my life is forever dark now.



I need time to grieve and recover so I am taking sometime off. Hopefully not too long. I appreciate your understanding of this matter. I hope no one goes through this pain. Rest in Peace my angels.

:( Losing a dog is like loosing a family member perhaps worse as they see us at our worse and best but never question why just give. My last dog died in front of me - choked after eating (well gobbled she was a 13yrs old Labrador ) her food - gone very quickly but not quietly :-(. Even now I say "what if" which is pointless no use looking back just think of those mad days when they made you laugh or put their paw on your knee !

After a short while briefing the only back is to get another "friend" - Never replaces them but will add to your life and remind you ,at times, of the good life.

P.S. Adopt a stray they deserve / want you help and will get you over your grieving. Clear Skies - 2 more stars have just been added :-);)
