  1. Just to add - I'd be putting in a complaint to Council for not following up a dog attack and simply handing the dog back to the owner with no penalty. Next time, it mightn't end so well for someone else.
  2. I'm so sorry . Tamar was a lucky girl to live such a wonderful life with you and be so loved. We, who have had the joy of loving an old dog, and having them in our lives, are truly blessed. Thinking of you.
  3. This was such a terrible experience. Although it wasn't us who hit the little dog, it happened outside our place on the road. The neighbour who thought she hit something came back shortly after - she took her children home a short distance - and was equally devastated, but there was nothing anyone could have done. Keep your dogs safe and contained, no matter how much the neighbours know and like them. It's just so sad when this happens.
  4. You were my neighbour's little dog but we all knew you well from your visits. Your friendly nature and cute face endeared you to all the neighbours on our acreages. I'm so glad we were the first to see you immediately after you were hit by the car and ran to get you before another car came along or any of the children around could find you. All we could do was hold you, wrap you in a blanket and tell you we cared that you had lived, and were sad that you had died so young. Rest well, sweetheart, you were important.
  5. We never forget our good dogs @moosmum. You have beautiful memories of yours.
  6. What a little cutie!
  7. Our first family dog was a Beagle x Kelpie the kids called Marley. The first few years were "interesting" and she sure taught us lots about living with dogs. She grew into the most sweetest natured girl that we loved for all of her 17 years with us. After having two more "Marlies" over the years (of different breeds) including a current one , we affectionally refer to our first as "Big Marley". Many other dogs have come and gone but I'll never forget her.
  8. How long would the dog be alone in the apartment every day?
  9. I'm so sorry. What a beautiful little boy he was. As for dealing with the pain and loss - having lost many dogs over the years, it is always the same. The joy, love and companionship they offer us are the reasons most of us will eventually have another dog in our lives. Be kind to yourself and keep your lovely memories of Kane close to your heart.
  10. Bruce sure got lucky when he came to you. Hope he has gone where there is lots of low hanging fruit, pups to chase and dreams to dream.
  11. I'm sorry your little Tamar has this. I've no experience with dogs with MND but my father died from it and it's a progressive disease that only gets worse. The specialist told our family that the progression (in humans) depends on where the symptoms first manifest. In my father's case, he kept stumbling on his daily walk, so they think it started in his legs, but he didn't seek help until he had constant twitches in his arm - by this time it had progressed upward. I think talking to the vet who diagnosed Tamar, as you were going to do, would be the best because progression in dogs may be v
  12. Nothing like an old dog - and an old Beagle is so beautiful. Our first dog, a Beagle x , lived to 17 years and was the sweetest girl ever. It's always a privilege to look after an oldie and they certainly teach us a thing or two!
  13. I've just put my older, tiny girls back onto Nexgard Spectra. They are old and don't leave the house/yard too often but I think the wet weather and rapid growth of vegetation has brought in grass fleas and mites so it's a good idea. A good bath and a preventative would be the best idea, but considering Justice's medical history, a phone call to your vet to ask which one would be the best for him would set your mind at ease. With the house, thorough vacuuming is the best - wash the sheets, dog blankets, wipe down couches and vacuum every couple of days (pay attention to skirting boards) and
  14. I've just read this @Loving my Oldies. So very sorry to hear that your Jeune has left. I know from your posts over the years that she had the best life, as did all your dogs. It's so very hard in some ways living with the oldies but for every heartbreak when they go, they give us so much during their long times with us. Jeune was a special girl who knew a lot of love and care with you.
