365 Challenge: Day 310 Ryder (LIST: Objects I adore) This Is My Truth Now

Ryder: my 10-year old shiba inu dog who unexpectedly passed away this week

Ryder

When I took this photo 3 months ago, I never realized its meaning

Sundays are LIST days and today is no different. While I never expected to include Ryder as an object I love, it feels appropriate given his unexpected death this week. If you are new to my blog, you should first read this message, which explains what happened to him earlier this week. This post will be about celebrating his life and my love for him.

Ryder was born September 3, 2007. During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend that year, while visiting my parents in Pennsylvania, we took a trip to a pet store with the only intent being to visit with a few puppies. By the next day, I adopted Ryder, a red sesame shiba, who was about 13-weeks old. He was such a tiny little puppy, the runt of his litter, and looked more like a little bear.

Explanation for my absence this last week: an unexpected and core-shaking loss This Is My Truth Now

As many of you have noticed and commented, I havent been online in the last week. Given my 365 Daily Challenge and normally frequent interaction, it was unusual and unexpected. Even when I went on a two-week vacation last fall, I briefly posted each day to stay connected with all my online friends. There would only be a few things to keep me from blogging or responding to comments, and unfortunately, I experienced one of them this past week.

Ryder Reg

For anyone who doesnt know, Ryder was my ten-year-old shiba inu dog, who had a huge presence not only in my life, but on this blog. As you can probably tell by my use of the past tense, Ryder is no longer with us. Its taken me several days to even be able to return online and to try to let everyone know what happened. This will unfortunately be a very sad post, and if you prefer not to read it, I completely understand. I know how many people enjoyed hearing from Ryder, and I wanted to at least let everyone know what occurred this last week. You can skip this and just read a happier memorial here.

Ryder has taken anti-seizure medicine for most of his life. We ran regular tests once or twice per year to check his blood chemistry, as the medicine which prevented seizures also has the ability to destroy his liver. When we went to the vet ten days ago, as I could tell Ryder was too lethargic by normal standards, I expected to adjust his med...

Welcome to Bar Harbor, Maine, one of New England's most idyllic coastal towns.  But as new food writer Hayley Powell is about to find out, the occasional murder can take a bite out of seaside bliss...

Single mom Hayley Powell is barely keeping her leaking roof over her head when her boss at the Island Times gives her a new assignment - taking over the paper's food column.  Hayley's not sure she has the chops--she's an office manager, not a writer, even if her friends clamor for her mouth-watering potluck dishes.  But the extra income is tempting, and Hayley's chatty first column is suddenly on everyone's menu - with one exception.

When rival food writer Karen Appelbaum is found face-down in a bowl of Hayley's creamy clam chowder, all signs point to Hayley.  To clear her name, she'll have to enlist some help, including her BFFs, a perpetually pregnant lobster woman, and glamorous real estate agent.  As she whips up a list of suspects, Hayley discovers a juicy secret about the victim - and finds herself in a dangerous mix with a cold-blooded killer.


Hayley Powell is a single mother of two who works as an office manager at a small newspaper.  When she realizes she barely has enough to get by, she digs in her heels and asks her editor for a raise.  While he tells her there just isn't any money, he offers her a new job:  If she'll take over the food column he'll give her $25 for each one published.  Since she really has no alternative, she accepts the job.

For her first column she offers a recipe that everyone seems to love except one person - Karen Appelbaum, food columnist at a rival paper.  Karen first accuses her of stealing recipes, then when they have a slight collision in the supermarket, Karen ends up with Hayley's mother's recipe for clam chowder and publishes it before Hayley has a chance.  Now everyone thinks Karen is the genius w...

archiemcphee: Today the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders is... The Lion of Chaeronea





archiemcphee:

Today the Department of Awesome Natural Wonders is 4000 under the sea off the coat of Baja California enjoying the spectacular display of deep sea fireworks that is a Halitrephes maasi jellyfish swimming past the camera aboard the ROV Hercules operated by the E/V Nautilus crew.

Were starting this year with deep sea fireworks, and a spirit of exploration! When something remarkable floats by in the middle of sampling operations, our team quickly switches gears to marvel and document. The frilled tentacles of the Halitrephes maasi jelly came into view at 1225m in the Revillagigedo Archipelago off Baja California, Mexico. Radial canals that move nutrients through the jellys bell form a starburst pattern that reflects the lights of ROV Hercules with bright splashes of yellow and pinkbut without our lights this gelatinous beauty drifts unseen in the dark.
