    I just adopted Bentley last month. He's 99lbs and 1.5yrs old. He loves the wood gathering and will even haul splits for me! Bentley.jpg Bentley2.jpg

    Nice dogs there Krabappel! I guess you and collie get to train that puppy up all summer. Have fun.

    Love me some big 'ol labs. Looks like you hit a home run at the pound, Bocefus!

    I found out tonight that my girl has any where from a couple weeks to several months left (kidney failure). It's a bummer.

    My muttly. He thinks the wood pile is his personal stick collection. Although he really prefers the cottonwood we had a few years ago.

    Thanks. There is really nothing more to do now besides give her medicine and ivs to help her kidneys function. I have to be careful as to what I can feed her because her organs are so sensitive now. She is around 13 - she was a stray.

    I wish I could get her to look at the phone/camera but she refuses. For some reason, she hates getting her picture taken! So it will be the back of her head for now. The silly girl (meant in a sweet way).

    My oldest dog is the same way...Do they feel looking into the camera will divulge their sickness or old age vulnerabilities and make them the known weak link in the pack? I have to call my dogs name and get a picture of her as she turns to look.. That is weird.

    We had a 15 yo JRT that had kidney failure. Egg whites and salmon were her diet for a few months but she deteriorated so quickly we couldn't watch her suffer anymore and we had to put her down. Her quality of life was zero, after having 15 years of a great life, it was still an awful decision to make. I still cry thinking about her so weak, not even able to stand up, guilty that she suffered.

    Big hugs to you and your dog, many of us have been where you are now so know you have friends in perfect strangers :)

    There he is! He could just sit up in the tree and wait for the squirrel to crawl right into his mouth

    Sorry to hear about your girl's poor health. The stray ones seem to make the best pets. Adopted a couple of pups but most of our pets never made it to the pound when we took them in.

    My rottweiler is going on 12 years. I have had her 10 years now, adopted from the city animal shelter with a guestimate of 1 yr old at the time. She used to be fast enough to chase a frisbee, and catch it. I didn't teach her. Dog found a frisbee in the yard one day, brought it to me. I threw it, she chased it, jumped up and caught it. She hasn't been interested in frisbee for a while, young at heart, but too slow now to get it. She likes to wade into the river for a swim, and dig up rocks from the bottom. She looks good for her age, these pics were taken this year. She hasn't seemed to slow down a whole lot yet, I know it just comes on quick.

    They're great dogs, we had two years ago... male and female.. They both only lived to be about 8-9 years old.. what a heart break losing them.. They have their own breed of personality... My big male Rudy loved kids...he was a big lover:)

    The little guy turned 12 this spring. He's had some issues these last few years and was recently seen by his regular vet for a possible liver infection, antibiotics, follow up check up went well last week, etc.

    This past Tuesday he stopped eating and threw up a few times. Kind of normal for his conditions and the meds he was still on.

    Thursday he went to the ER because he still would not eat and was getting lethargic, wouldn't jump off the bed anymore, etc.

    We got him back Sat evening.....minus one gall bladder that was about to burst. [​IMG]

    He's on bed rest / light duty for at least 2 weeks and is still doped up on pain meds, etc but seems to be doing well. He has difficulty barking since he had a tube down his throat. 10 staples in his tummy.
