    skhill- wish I could, but he is almost 14 now and having hip issues, his legs give out. Which means he has access to that part of the yard that he can get to without stairs. I live on a hillside, and it's a flight of stairs down to get to the street or up to the main part of the yard. He can't do it currently. I did take him about a month ago, but it was too much for him, and he is afraid to try the stairs again. He wanders around the house sometimes, and I get the feeling he is looking for his 'job'. Now he watches me where ever I go.

    That photo is like 4 years old, his face is all white now.

    Dear dog, yes it sucks getting old. You and me both kid. We both need new bodies. I am glad you are still smiling. Me, I've got my Ben Gay and DMSO...

    Tzvia, I almost teared up reading about your dog, he just sounds so sweet and just plain incredible. I can just see him still wanting to do his job

    Dear dog,

    You're quite the little magician. When I got into the shower this morning you were all snuggled in your bed, but when I walk out I get to see this

    I know my bed is comfortable, but I was a tad bit jealous that I wasn't still in it and you were! You got a new bed for Christmas, please stay out of mine.

    dear little Beau,

    I'm sorry but he's never coming back. He died and we will do the best we can to love and cherish you since we cannot do for our dear father in law, your buddy, any longer. Roweena can be your buddy and I promise I will give you lots of belly rubs and milk bones and walk you as slowly and as leisurely as you like as often as you like.

    your now owner and caregiver.

    Marni and Beau,
    Sorry for your loss. It's great that little Beau has a new loving family instead of being turned over to a shelter.

    When Beau is feeling better, will he pose for a photo?

    Don't know if this is an option for you, but we recently started our dog (Katy) on Adequan injections. Katy is 10 and has always had hip dysplasia that was mostly controlled via glucosomine. We noticed though that she was starting to have more pain and difficulty. After a long talk with our vet and much research, we decided to try the Adequan. She's only had 3 shots so far but we have already noticed improvement. We are keeping our fingers crossed this works.

    Dear Dog,

    I appreciate your desire to guard me while I sleep, but the cats are no threat. Please stop chasing them off when they dare to join us in bed. I really like having then curl up with us on a cold night, promise. What I don't like is being woken up by your vigorous defense, then going to comfort a scared and pissed off cat in the middle of the night.

    love, your sleep-deprived human

    We lost our older BC's seven years ago, we figured it was time to have a family again.

    Dear Dog,
    Why do you sing in your sleep? It's cute, but weird.
    So long as the wheels are still turning, life is good.

    How I have laughed, smiled and also cried at the posts on here.


    Dear Grand-dog

    I just love you so very much, when I see you several lunch times during the week, you are such a lovely dog to cuddle.

    Dear Lloyd,

    Thanks for continuing to be a clown even though you are getting on in years.

    To train a dog, you must be more interesting than dirt.
