My dog of 17years is making his way to the rainbow road today. He has watched my endless slips over the years, and wiped my tears during countless hangovers. I owe it to him to stay sober.

Aw Mitch, my thoughts are with you hun. <:)> My oldest dog is also 17 and I know the end is near and it just tears me to pieces. Sending you loads of support, care and understanding today. <:)>

I will not drink in honor of Mitch's dog who has been her loyal friend for so many years.

I'm doing a lot of driving. A very good reason/excuse not too.

I'm hacking the nettles down in the back garden. Drink and I'm quite likely to remove a limb :o .
