@tinamarie1974 we’re not actually sure if that was the particular grooming (I was mostly being a smartass about it), but that was the groomer where we started noticing his anxiety increasing when we would go so we switched to a mobile. They had good results the first time and then even they couldn’t groom him. Now we have to do it ourselves. Poor guy. I suspect it was an issue over his claws. He’s extremely sensitive about them.

Not pictured: the veritable living-hell existence you have to suffer through every waking hour of your life in order to maintain a bodyfat percentage in the lower single digits, unless you’re genetically-predisposed to it (e.g. Nigerian marathon runners, the tiny Asian girl at work who never moves and eats entire pizzas for lunch yet somehow still weighs 92 pounds, etc).
Don’t get me wrong, actors these days put in some hard work (with the assistance of roids and $300,000/year trainers) to get jacked up, but those individually-defined obliques are courtesy of Industrial Light and Magic.
@mike808 That first season of Patriot is my all time favorite video media. (Can’t see bothering watching Jack Whatever.)
Did you know that the same writer guy wrote a series for Epix, called Perpetual Grace, LTD? Feels a bit too samey and maybe less… good… for me to recommend it after watching Patriot, but I’m enjoying that show also.
@tinamarie1974 Start with season 1, and you’ll love it. The only thing we didn’t really absolutely like was the cliffhanger-ish episode endings.
You may also want to try the series “Strike Back” on Amazon- from your prior comments, you may well appreciate it as well.
We also liked it very much.
We’re also fans of “Bosch”, having read all the Michael Connelly books previously, and Simon Tolliver is a much more grizzled-appearing actor, so some of the critics of Mr. Krasinski may also be able to tolerate him better- IF they can separate the actor from some of his less savory roles [e.g., a heavy in one of the Transformer movies]…
Let me know what you think…
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the casting of the first series anyway, and PARTICULARLY like Krasinski in the Ryan role, he’s SUPPOSED to be a big change from the Duke-Hardjaw thing, he’s SUPPOSED to be a fluffy-minded everyman who gets drawn into into an extreme situation.
Unfortunately the story seemed to go wandering back and forth between fluffy-minded and hardjaw, and I lost interest before the end; the most recent one lost me in just a couple minutes. Hunt for Red October and Patriot Games have been the best Jack-Ryan-on-film things so far imho. But I think John Krasinski is great - though I’d actually like him better in the role if he hadn’t gone all Duke-Hardbody.
I realize that isn’t EVERYbody’s preference, though!
I am not a huge fan of the office (don’t hate me - i have plenty of RL friends that do over this opinion) but I really do love the show. i haven’t watched season two yet but i’m looking forward to it. i was skeptical because i’ve always been a huge harrison ford fan and i absolutely loved the books. but i have to say i was pleasantly surprised. thank god.
