    Bet this is the oldest dog here. It's summer, so the stove's not burning, but this old fella isn't likely to live to see another burn season (17.5) so I figured I would post it here now.

    I don't think I've ever heard of a springer living that long.

    Neither has our vet. This poor dog, I hope he goes peacefully on his own, I don't think Hubs could bear to have to put him down.

    The wifes cat (would...... with a .22) a long hair will occasionaly walk by said stove and the tail may brush against it from time to time. A lovely smell for sure. She doesnt cozy up to it and prefers the colder bedroom to nap.

    My thoughts are with you, tick. After 17 years, it's not just a pet. That's a strong bond that leaves a hole in one's heart.

    Tickbitty,
    Sorry for your loss. There's not a day that goes by that I don't think about the little guys we've lost. No matter how old they are, its always too soon.

    Thanks you guys for the condolences on our old guy. He was my husband's dog from puppyhood - I knew him his whole life but I have only been his "Mom" for the later half. I have been cooking for him lately more than I cook for the family! There is always such a hole when they are gone. Thanks all!

    Sorry to read about you and your husband's dog Tickbitty . . . it's never easy to lose a friend . . . whether they have two legs or four legs.

    My boys Rusty & Cody. Rusty will come inside and run over the brick hearth everytime. It must warm the paws after being in the snow!!

    Sorry for your loss TB, the longer we have them the bigger piece of our heart we lose when they leave us. I lost mine after 13 years this past March and I still miss her, I rescued a shelter dog in June and she takes a lot of my time and my mind off of the one I lost.
    My new one does not like the cold or rain so I imagine shes gonna park herself in front of the stove for the winter as soon as I fire her up.

    Not sure, my guess is terrier and hound mix?? She was dumped on the side of the road in Arkansas and ended up in Connecticut where I picked her up.

    Here's our guy. His only movement for hours was to roll over and warm up the other side.
