Shadow is not himself

Shadow isn't eating as he should

He eats well , then refuses to eat for a day or two

And hes losing weight

And to be fair weve been lucky

His lack of bowels was bound to have an effect

Hes 11 now

Today he has eaten boiled chicken and the juice with the fat removed

One of many days when we throw out meals and tempt him

Chicken without rice

He either refuses his breakfast of wolfs it down

Lately he refuses

Tonight hes enjoyed his chicken and chicken stock, no rice

Jewish penicillin

And I know his time is limited

I just cant imagine life without my hound from hell

My bad tempered hound from hell

Who makes MHoming a nightmare

As he guards the MH from all and sundry

And doesnt have an off switch

Unless he meets , then he is a gentle giant

But my gentle giant is losing weight, not eating so well

Cuddles me every morning on my bed once Albert gets up

And is my baby

We will take him to the vet

But I think hes just getting old, his bowels failing

and he is struggling

My hound from hell, who would take on anyone

But would teach Barry that he was safe with this German Shepard

And has bitten all his grandkids into submission

Not more than an a sharp nibble

But they know their place

And he knows his

A so special part of our family

And for me well what could I say

A soul mate

My beautiful hound from hell

Sandra

Very sad to hear of his decline - he single pawed converted Lesley to us having a dog.

The concrete delivery driver still speaks with awe about the reception that he got - and his need for clean underwear afterwards, although Shadow spoke not a word of French I think the driver was fluent in Panic.

He was as soft as a baby with HIS soft toy and yet in the MH he was, as you described him the "HfH"

Give him some strokes from both of us.

Remember Jo Cox and what she stood for.

Any comments above are only MY OPINION and should be read as that.

Of course he did Dave

She was putty in his paws

She took him under her wing, or he took her

From water on the porch

To into the kitchen

And I remember him gazing into her eyes

What happened in the kitchen was between him and her

No one interfered

It was her and the hound from hell

I guess she fell in love

And he with her

He never allowed her near the MHome though

Fingers crossed it is something the vet can sort out for him. GSD's and their digestive systems!

This is sad and worrying news. Hopefully the vet can get him sorted Sandra. He's a lovely dog (unless you break into your garden unannounced)

A worrying time Sandra and I sincerely hope it’s only a blip and nothing sinister, they really do get a grip of your heart strings and leave a big gap when they’re gone.

Our thoughts are with you and we sincerely hope this is a "blip" and the Doggie Doctor makes him better.

Cheapest is not always the best, biggest is not always better but honesty is always a winner.
"She that must be obeyed" is from Gods green Acre.
"He that obeys" is from the wrong side of the Lougher Estuary...... or did she say the Severn Estuary?
