We are not having another dog and what you suggest is not how the law works Sandra, if we had taken him in the owner would have come here for him and taken him, probably with police assistance.
Its up to the authorities to deal with it , not us.

Yes

But what bad luck for him

I see the dog whistler sorting him out

Im even thinking of delivering shadow to you

And letting the dog whistler sort him out

Although you would need to cook his chicken and rice

So it wouldnt work

And anyway hes already demented by a crying baby

He thinks much more should be done

His teddy is shaken to death

Were careful not to let him near without supervision

But hes very gentle near him

Hes anxious if I or Albert hold him when hes crying

Which is mostly all the time

I feel guilty

I raised the first three grandkids, well mostly , the next seven their parents did

And I feel no joy at this little one

I just feel overwhelmed at the situation , he shouldnt be living here, he should be visiting, when I could indulge him

I guess he should have been a great grandchild

Because Im feeling my age

But who knows

He may just make me younger

But I cant lift him

My hands are weak, and I wont risk it

If hes placed in my arms Im Ok

So Im a rubbish grandma to him

But I can wash his clothes

Hes come to late

Sandra

Isn't it awful, Jan, when we feel so helpless?

My big bugbear is seeing dogs in pain that their owners either don't recognise or just shrug off as "old age". I want to shake these people until their teeth rattle! Old age?! Since when did old age make you limp, or cause you not to be able to rise and move around?!
One poor old labrador in our village has such severe arthritis (I presume?!) that she cannot walk down the garden path! If they toss her a treat, in the house, and it lands just out of reach she is unable/unwilling to get up and get it. We are talking a Labrador here!
I have tried and tried to get them to take action but they are from old country stock and they just let their animals deteriorate until they give up on life.
Esther, the dog we took in when their Sister in Law died, was in such pain that the vet said if it had been one of us we would be screaming They had her on a cheap joint supplement available over the counter. The vet ended up putting her on a combination of three different pain killers, each at maximum dose, to help settle her pain. With them she was on none.
The relatives expressed surprise at how her aggression had disappeared since she came to live with us. Funny that?!

Perhaps we will set up a vigilante group and go snatch these poor creatures from their miserable lives.

I f you do can shadow come pat ?

Hes not in pain

He is a pain

Hes constantly next to Archie

Cries when he cries , has almost shaken his old long suffering teddy to bits

And no way will I trust him

Jane does as hes often in the bedroom with her and Archie , his Shadow

But now hes bottle fed , Archie that is, the crying has stopped

Anyone can feed him , and she is more relaxed , and sleeping better

Of course breast feeding is best , but not best in all events , some babies and mothers cant cope

My first child drove me demented as I breast feed him for 3 months

He only settled when I gave up and bottle fed him

She is so relieved , of course my daughter who is a health visitor disapproves

But as I pointed out ,you were unable to breast feed your baby, hes 6ft 4 and looking good

And yes encourage but recognise one size doesnt fit all

Shes done two months, if things were working she would do more , but for her they are not

Its not a guilt trip

Shes done her best , he prefers a bottle

Glad you are sensible with Shadow, Sandra. Dogs do not have morals and do not know it is wrong to behave as dogs do.

Sensible ?

This dog is besotted by this baby

Id never leave him alone with him

Id never leave any dog alone with him

Hes glued to his side , lies along side the pram ,

Up the moment he cries

Glued to Jane when she has the baby

And she seems content with that

And once we had Odin

He worshiped our Megs , curled round her as she slept

Much as Rays photo

And walked to her side as she grew to toddle

She thought she controlled him on a short lead

He controlled her , he never needed a lead , walked automatically at heel

And brought her to heel

But even still Shadow is old

Im surprised he is so protective and gentle around Archie

And seems to have accepted janes other two kids as well

His family is growing

And hes delighted

Me I cant wait to get rid of them from my house

They are Young , full of energy , noise and exuberance

Need no routine

Take it as is comes

Me

I need routine , and as it comes doesnt suit me at all

And slowly I recon were are getting to care for Archie more

Not Me have a very heavy cold, I dont feel well , so I wont have him breathing my germs

But Albert , well he carries him everywhere

So once again

We have a new grandchild it seems
