Ole buzzard



   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  For this rail adventure, we'll head north to the White Pass & Yukon, a tourist line that travels between Skagway AK and the US/Canada border in British Columbia.

The White Pass & Yukon's "rotary fleet" consisting of vintage snowplow #3 (Cooke - 1899 ) is marching upgrade trailed by twin steam locomotives #73 (Baldwin 2-8-2 blt. 5-47 ) and #69 (Baldwin 2-8-0 blt. 4-07 ) and coach 211 as it heads for White Pass summit and the Canadian border to do battle with the snow drifts in the time honored tradition. This is the task for which she was built 111 years ago. The train is traversing the high line and is just shy of 16 miles from Skagway and tidewater but has already climbed over 2000 feet. Here the train is curling over the curved wooden trestle of bridge 15C and into one of two tunnels on the line (250 ft long tunnel 15 ). This shot was taken from the platform of the following passenger train as we sat near MP 12.2 looking across the canyon of the Skaguay River which is some 1000 ft below the train clinging to the mountain side of the White Pass' "high line."

   Ole buzzard posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  I haven't posted in a while. Here's a recent picture of the Puggies. Mabel has been having a hard time with her diabetes. She is blind now (has been since last May ) and has lost seven of her 17 pounds. We took her to a specialist at the University of Georgia vet college who recommended a new hypoallergenic diet. In two weeks, she has gained almost a half pound back, so we are hopeful. Here we have Toby keeping watch over his harem from the chaise, and in the bed, clockwise from lower left, Sally, Winnie, and Mabel.

   Escaped commieny  So glad you stopped by with an update, Shiloh sends Mable a Hug.
What about your comment for the pug and cookie? 12/26

   MeiDei  Buzz: have any of your pugs ever suffered from "reverse sneezing"? It's a condition that can crop up, last for a day, an hour or weeks & will usually rectify itself - but so scary when it happens to the little loved one. In 42 years of having small breed dogs I've never seen or heard of it, but my Chug now has it. Our Vet steered me to a youtube search, rather than an emergency visit.

   Escaped commieny  My Beagle gets this, but only lasts a few minutes, the vet says it is important I don't show signs of panic, as that transmits, so I just say it's OK and don't get bug eyed, don't show your baby fear.

   MeiDei  Thx EC - we are calm with her. I covered her nose, to force her to mouth breathe, & it stopped - you learn something new every day : ) Pugs, Beagles, Chihuahuas, Terriers & some Spaniels are susceptible vs. larger breed dogs. Our Chug is 10 years old and this is her first episode - day 4 now. If it worsens or she develops other symptoms the Vet will see her. She's quite herself otherwise, no change in eating or friskiness.

   Balogreene  Our Shih Tau does this occasionally, we just love her through it. Our vet says it's no big deal if it doesn't go on very long.

Buzz, love your pic. We had a deaf Cocker Spaniel, we got late in her life. She knew some signs (we learned ) but, when you did them, she turned her head so she couldn't see. A finger to the lips meant shush, a hand movement meant down, etc. She just refused to see them, and did what she wanted. I don't know what a blind dog will do, but they'll figure a way around you : )

   Ole buzzard  Got back from a routine visit to the vet yesterday. It appears the new diet Mabel is on is working. She has gained another 1.4 pounds, putting her back to 11.5.

   Ole buzzard posted on Dogs, Cats & Critters  The Pugs are alive and well. There's the storied and well-traveled Mabel on the left in front, next to Winifred, our little black Sally, and Toby in the rear. We still miss our Wilhelmina. She crossed the Rainbow Bridge 11/13/14.

   Balogreene  After German Shepherds, Border Collies, and Greyhounds, smished nose dogs are the best. Our Groomer had a pug for the longest time, sad to say she is gone now. But, you have to have a smished nose dog to really appreciate small dogs.

   Ole buzzard posted on Photography  HopeandGlory mentioned that they like trains, but not heights. Yotty doesn't like heights, either.

A Durango & Silverton train with a K-36 pulling, rounds the curves along the cliffs edge, and above the Animas River near Rockwood, Colorado. Unfortunately, the Animas has an unsavory orange hue to it because of a botched EPA excavating job up near Silverton at the abandoned Gold King Mine. Excavating at the mine caused a "blowout" of wastewater, and released extremely high levels of lead, arsenic, cadmium, beryllium and mercury into Cement Creek, and eventually into the Animas.
