Thanks for asking!

His eye seems to be a lot better, it had good days and bad days but it looks a lot more normal - so hopefully its not a life long thing.

His hips - well the loxicom helped him soo much he was like a new dog! Deffo going to get more.

My new concern is that he licks his front legs a lot, not something i noticed too much cause dogs lick their legs after eating..but then i saw a show about a dog doing that and it turned out it had bone cancer..so now im paranoid! So next vet check ill ask about it. If it is there is nothing to do about it at his age, and i would not put him through major surgery just to get another month or two. It will be what it will be.

But he is our last dog, so i feel im kind of clinging on to every moment cause im not sure what life would be like without a dog. Had one for 30 years! But parents dont want another. dad would have another lab bitch outside in kennels...but whats the point. When he was younger and out shooting the dog was with him all day until it was dark then going to bed well fed and tired.. and on off days would be pottering about the yard with him doing this and that working fences etc...now he (dad) is older he spends more of his days watching TV so what would a dog do outside alone all day...it would be cruel and me and mum wont allow it. And mum doesnt want another house dog - so no more dogs. End of an era. Sad, but i keep trying to tell myself im not that into dogs anyway...and im not but at same time...its nice to have a little buddy to go for a walk with so you dont feel like a boob just walking about on your own lol they give you some purpose..

Good to hear that you have found suitable medication to get him through his minor health issues.

As to the “last dog” thing, please don’t focalize on this.
If someone had told me 18 months ago that I’d have a staffy, I’d have laughed in your face. My mid-life crisis made me buy a horse from a stud I’d been following since uni (a long time ago !) and now I have Nifty too. Maybe your present situation means you’ll have a doggy break but life still has alot of surprises in store for you.
As for company on walks, how about taking your pony with you in the meantime ? It’s not quite the same but it can be fun too Wink

Hahaha totally! I keep threatening to do that, but i did go for a walk in a forest park one time with my filly and i could barely walk with all her admirers. I cant even train in the school/drive on the roads cause there is always someone walking or driving in a car by stopping to talk about them. Its a curse really :p At least i know they stand well, cause they bloody need to!
