Done, packing up the new truck and moving this weekend after that convincing argument.
Heads up - if you're planning on flying out of Halifax tonight, chances are you aren't going to flying out for a while.
that's weird, cancelled flights from yesterday were re scheduled for today
Spent 3 hours at the vet last night after she started retching around supper time - most likely, ate something, but now concerns of intestine blockage. Waiting for her to poop so they can do a second set of x-rays and an ultrasound to rule things out. Poor pup - she's super anxious and I'm sure is frightened beyond belief.
The joys of dog ownership. hopefully she's all right!
Coming home this morning - still needs observation. She definitely ate "something" and it's causing distress. She hasn't pooped in almost 2 days now so hoping getting her home where she is comfortable allows her to calm down enough to get whatever is in there out.
404 - touching not found
wait I said that wrong...
How's she doing? Went through that twice (Both times requiring surgery within a month) when our lab was almost a year old. Hateful situation
She is home now and her GI system all seems to be fine. She is still coughing a bit but the vet mentioned it could also be something like kennel cough and completely unrelated. We're being careful with her - she's happy, eating fine, playing fine, so just need to keep an eye on her.
A buddy of mine volunteered to fix it up for me. I haven’t had a chance to take it to him yet, so if anything changes I’ll let you know. I appreciate it, thanks!
Sounds good! just randomly thought of it the other day when I saw a plow on Kijiji that said it had a controller problem.
What the fuck were they on? Did they come down yet?
Sounds like the next sequel to Dumb and Dumber
Up early on a Saturday to take my kids to hockey. Avoided this one the entire time we lived in Halifax - NHL team coming, its being advertised pretty hard and a bunch of friends are into it. There isn’t actually any arenas in the city of Seattle, though - drive for 25 minutes to one suburb that has an arena, which I find hilarious. I volunteered to get on the ice and help the coach - first parent who was also out there I talked to - from Canada, wife is a teacher (as is mine) and worked at the same place I do when they first arrived.
I'm thinking the gas fumes didn't help any
Pretty nice day out there. The roads are wet or i'd wash the car off but i did manage to get my taxes done today
I was almost 3k over for an oil change...oops.
Changed it today. I was expecting it to come out like tar. It didn’t look/feel much different than when i changed it last. It was still pretty brown/golden
I got my last 2 done at the dealership because I had some warranty issues but mine is always pretty clean when I do it myself.
Every 5k and I do 40k a year so I’m under the thing often
reaaally wanna pick up a set of Race Ramps for oil changes. Expensive though.
I bought that style for my FIL for Xmas and then just go to his place to use them for oil changes lol. I’ll have to check the brand next time I’m there, i got them at CT
Rhino Ramps are on sale at CT - 40% off
Is it really worth it to diy your oil changes? I get the fact that some people like to do their own stuff and check their own cars out, or they have a major distrust of shops. We charge like .6/hr to do an oil change so it is barely worth it for us unless it's part of a larger service, I can't see how it is better from a time/money perspective to do it in your driveway. Drag out the tools, get the ramps, make a mess, and then have to dispose of the old stuff lol.
i work a boring desk job, so i dont mind getting dirty around my car. i find it therapeutic to clean it/work on it, even if its just a boring commuter car
My schedule is unpredictable, and it takes approximately 10 minutes to change my oil once I close the garage door. A guy comes and takes my used oil off my hands. I don’t see any reason to make appointments to do such a small job.
I used to do the majority of my own repairs and body work, but now i never have the time for that. I’ll drop it off at a shop for anything these days other than oil changes and swapping tires.
It is for me. Oil changes on the Titan at the dealer are like $300. Do it myself for less than half that. And takes less than half an hour.
If I had a car I enjoyed working on, I might do them.
$100 for Jeep, $85 for Accent - synthetic oil changes every 6k
There is no not enough savings in there for me to even remotely consider it a DIY. Same goes for tire rotations, especially on my Jeep, jacking that bastard up and swapping those heavy ass tires around, hell with that noise lol.
I do my own, every 15K on the VW for $40 less than the dealer. haven't had to do the vette yet
I have zero desire to do my own oil changes. Drop it at dealer go have a coffee, and pick it up.
You guys talk about their burgers all the time!
Too bad it's 475km away, but I am sure next trip to NS after its open I can twist Boots arm to go out for one.
