Q: We are really sad because our veterinarian has recommended that we have our dog's left front leg amputated.

I recently spent a delightful afternoon chatting with a three-generation trio. They hooked up about a year ago in Legacy Corps.

As the Ghost of Christmas Past would verify, Tom won't be the only turkey at the holiday dinner table.

Q: Stress, stress, stress! The responsibility for holiday gift giving for our grandchildren, who range from 6 to 17, turns grandmother into a frustrated worrywart. What does each want or need? How much does it cost? Is it easily available at the mall or on the Web site? Can it be returned or exchanged? Will each feel they received their fair share?

Q: Our friends keep their dog in a crate in their kitchen during the entire day when they are at work and at night when they are asleep.

She was 98 and four months. Doris told me when she phoned asking about local transportation from her San Diego County home. Sure, she still drives. Her license is good until she's 101, but she needed to return some hearing aids and didn't want to drive across town. I offered to help if she'd talk with me first about what I hope will be my future - a ripe old age with good health and ... [full story]
