Dagny,
Sorry to hear about Gidget, I always enjoyed the pics of you two playing on the Mall.

Sorry, Dagny. Our furry buddies are very much a part of us, and when they leave us physically, the distance between the intimacy we continue to feel and where they are now can be difficult to bear.

Unless traveling, we do not store any food in our vehicles as it is rare that we out of our immediate living area. Even then, if there was ever a need to abandon the vehicle and walk, the longest would no more then 2-3 hours to home.

We do carry water though through all seasons but do not have to think about freezing temps unless we go up north into the interior in the winter. Even then, those small 500 ml to 1L water bottles and Gatorade type bottles can be frozen over and over again without any problems. In our freezer, we have some of these which have been frozen/thawed dozens of times over the years as they are used in place of buying ice for coolers when camping and traveling.

Regarding water in plastic bottles, and chemicals leaching from the plastic....

Anyone knows the kind of plastic used in electric kettles ?
Water boils in these and they are plastic !!

Well there is a recycle number on your plastic kettle, that tells you what kind of plastic it is.

I don't own a electic kettle, just a stainless kettle that goes on top of a stove. I don't think the plastic in a kettle is a real issue. Just never bought a electric one.

The plastic of bottled water seem to give a taste in the water when exposed to longer periodes of heat, but the is pretty long exposure compared to a reusable bottle or waterkettle.

Thank you, Russ. I sure miss her. Fortunately, I have many Samoyed "godpuppies" so will have more snow pics in the future. Right now I'm on the Outer Banks of North Carolina with a few sammies -- another of Gidget's favorite hangouts.

Thank you. It is comforting to know that she is remembered, fondly, by many.

That is for sure, Bingley. I'd been through this a couple of times before so at least knew what I was in for this time. The first weeks are brutal. Am blessed with many dog friends and several Samoyed-owning friends so that has been very helpful. I periodically borrow friends dogs to go walking or bikejoring with.

Am also a popular dogsitter now.
