Hi ya, jmd,

Reporting live from the bathtub... this is so not my favorite activity, but a dog's gotta do what a dog's gotta do if he ever wants to be fed again. Plus, I'd be really happy if that nasty rash never came back.

Paw-five,

The Tobster

the dog is showing her age...she struggles to walk far these days not as though

she's troubled she never was cared about going out anyway

she's so much happier lazing around...and being carried back and forth

...that keeps me strong!

:D Cool old pooch! Have you talked with your vet about anti-inflammatory meds? When my old girls started having a tough time walking, carprofen gave her another year of OK movement. You can still carry her so that she feels like a queen and you get your workout! :lol:

thanks! however I do wonder if there is much that can be done..she's just plain 'old'

it's years since I visited a vet the dog has thankfully been so healthy

I am trying to maintain a lighter weight to help mobility....she's currently just over 6 stone

that helps carrying her up/down stairs too!

Ebandit a dog like that deserves extra attention to toe nails and yummy food!! Maybe you can set up a TV and show the dog meerkat videos.. when my dog was really old.. roast beef and seeing a squirrel or two at close range was her only inspiration.. having a caring loving environment is the best medicine for owners and dogs alike.. I discovered my dogs love for animal videos completely by accident and then it became something all species enjoyed..

Plus a dog can be trained to fetch the newspaper for you, play catch with a ball or frisbee, or even just a stick, dogs can communicate better with us and vice a versa, the right dog will protect you from either bad people or bad situations, dog can lead a blind person, sniff out drugs, and on and on and on. And if you're really good at training you can do all sorts of things with a dog, a cat simply can't remotely keep up with, though I did manage to once train a cat to set, speak, and shake, other cats I had never got the hang of that stuff. Cats can rip furniture with their claws, though the wrong type of dog can chew your favorite stuff, so I guess in that aspect it's a draw. Cat's aren't really good for much of anything except to eat...

That's what I thought too, but was surprised by the improvement. I should probably talk to my doc too, but I have been self medicating with beer and tequila! :lol:

Hi ya, lady K-9 friend,

Reporting live from the reclining chair (stupid human is in the midst of vacuuming, which is why she had thrown all of my toys on top of me while I'm trying to siesta)...

It would be good for your human to take you to the vet, if for no other reason than to make sure you're not in pain.

Paw-five,

The Tobster

Love that lady dog of yours, right now I'm trying to pretty myself up for her. (My owner assures me a haircut will make me look younger and more distinguished looking, not so sure about that. Bah, as long as I get fed I'm up for almost anything.)

Ebandit.. sorry to hear about your pup.. the best thing about dogs is how effortless and automatic it is of them to make us feel love and comfort.. I hope your recovery is quick..

Baby, even though we were literally oceans apart I'm gonna miss you very much, hope K-9 heaven is all it's cracked out to be!

Much love and Paw-Fives to both you and your owner,
