Sort of a sad story. As you all know, Tucker has a brain tumor and just finished chemo two weeks ago. What you don't know about him is that he is a rescue dog with some serious emotional baggage. We are his 6th home, and we got him when he was 3...he is now almost 8. He is a joy around people, but can have a hair trigger around other dogs. He is the type that gets defensive and will not back down. We have tried to rehabilitate him to no avail. So yesterday when I brought Tilly home, she and Albert had a love fest. But Tucker was wary of her. It was very stressy for him, too. It all came down to my feeling that I could not trust him. If he hurt her, I could not live with that. After having a panic-meltdown over it, this morning, I returned her. The breeder understands completely. Love her, though. And when Tucker passes, she will join our family.

Oh gosh, I'm so sorry things didn't work out but I know you want to give Tucker all the love you can while you have him instead of reprimanding him all the time. Hugs from me and my furry ones.

Oooooo those look good. I may have to order some of those to try. I just finished a glass of champagne and have 2 chocolate molten cakes in the oven with some chocolate and raspberry gelato waiting patiently. I however am not so patient. . Only 8 minutes to chocolate bliss!

BL - I need some chocolate, too.

Jburgh - you made the right decision, although it must not have been pleasant. Give Tucker hugs.

Genius! Love the thought of red velvet cupcake balls. Has anyone actually tried them? I'm also loving the Berry Yummy, Cookie Dough Whoa, Choco-choco-choco late... heck, I'll have one of each.

kroquet or Grandmommie - since you guys are the nearest, one of you should take one for the team and try a few of those cakeballs. We can then just live vicariously through you

I made a new sticky in Shopping. It is a retail price reference. Hermes has one and it is valuable. It can help us track price increases, and reference older bag pricing.
