  1. Thank you for sharing such a loving tribute Snook. It's amazing how much joy our companions bring into our lives, I hope your beautiful memories of Justice bring you some comfort. RIP Justice
  2. I am so sorry Perse, it must have been quiet a shock. Poor little Tallie cat. Take care of yourself Persephone, I will be thinking of you and Tallie.
  3. We said goodbye to our beautiful Boomer this morning. It was such a privilege to have shared the final chapter of his long life. We only had him 9 months but we have some very precious memories to cherish. He was such a wonderful old boy, always trying to please and always with a grin.
  4. @Snook I used a belly band with a baby nappy inside with Jester when he seemed unable to hold all night. Whether it was enough for a full bladder or not I couldn't tell you as Jester refused to pee until I had taken the belly band off. Which in my case worked just fine.
  5. Lol I didn't know they were FB famous. They have settled in well, unfortunately they are not good with cats but that is a work in progress and we are managing it by separation. Their names were Boomba and Digger, hubby would like to change them to Boomer and Daisy. As the dogs are hearing impaired and don't answer to their names anyway I don't think it will be a problem. Their old owners dropped off some medication for them Saturday and once they took the dogs off their application they got a house straight away. Some good news for them at least.
  6. We lost our Jester back at the start of January and for the first time in forever there were no dogs in our house. It was far too quiet and there was something missing. So I put it out to the universe last weekend, low and behold on Thursday I had a phone call from a vet who had two elderly beagles surrendered. Their poor owners had been looking for over 3 months for a rental that would take their small family and their two dogs. The dogs had been in a kennel for all that time and the family were in a hotel. So we now are the owners of a male and female beagle. They are 13 and 12 respectively.
  7. Yesterday morning Jester quietly slipped away in his sleep. After loosing Nash 18 months ago Jester had been fading away. I am convinced that after loosing his friend his immune system crashed. We tried so hard to support him medically and emotionally but it wasn't to be. He is now buried with Nash on my daughter's property. My heart is full and my house is empty. For the first time in over 30 years there are no dogs in my house. Vale my beautiful boy, I know that you and Nash are reunited at the bridge.
  8. A lovely tribute to your Daisy. I am so sorry Bec for your loss.
  9. Yes but look how he is looking at you.....Yes sorry I know not helping.
  10. I was going to like Clive's photo but like isn't enough. Good grief Perse he is gorgeous.
  11. My parents have had lots of different terriers on their rural block, the best ratter they ever had was their Westie. She was lightning fast and lethal. She was a pampered town dog for the first 4 years of her life but adapted quickly to farm life. The other terriers they owned were an Aussie, Irish and Lakeland all would rat but the Westie was the quickest.
  12. Oh I can relate DDD, since Nash's passing I have been having terrible troubles getting Jester to eat. Vet visits showed nothing wrong, changed food, mixing different things into his food, nothing made a difference. One sniff and he was out of there. A Basset not eating is unheard of. When I let him out in the morning I feed the cats their raw food, if there is any left overs he can eat them when he comes in. So a few days ago I left his bowl of biscuits in the cat room, bingo all his biscuits gone. I haven't had a problem since....touch wood.
  13. He actually played with the grandchildren this morning. He sat in their play tent and had a "tea party". This is the first time in a long time that he has showed any interest, and now it is sleep time but the light is a bit bright.
  14. Yes PK, the vet thought she might have to remove a tooth so he was under a GA. He ended up just needing a really good scale and clean. I too thought it might be dental issues. I am now splitting his meals into 3, seems to be helping. We have another check up in a fortnight for a weigh in and to check his feet.
