Shadow

Well heís still with us

Heís 13 May the twelve

As you may remember he dropped from 50Kg to 30kg, blood tests ultrasound revealed nothing

I refused intrusive tests

It turned out he had a severe urine infection not picked up till he was weeing all over the house, and prob a gut infection

To cut a long story short he has been on long term antibiotics

Gained 8Kl and dropped two when antibiotics finished

Back on them he is eating well, loose stools now firmer

Heís well for an old git

Iím not holding my breath as he is getting old, but heís still enjoying life

We are both very pleased that you have been able to work out how to help him enjoy life a lot more.

Yes, he may be stubborn and awkward at times,

BUT he is a great dog, firmly glued to your side and with real justification - his undying love is only matched by yourís and Albertís and long may that last.

You know how large a place he has in our hearts too, please give him a dentistix in or similar from us.

Any typo that I make means the errorists win.

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

That is so lovely to hear, Sandra. I often wonder how he is doing. So many dogs are living to good ages now. Trouble is that means mine will still be with us when we are in our 80's!!! Might have to start saving up for a dog walker

Shadow manages with a walk alternate days as Alberts knees are bad Pat

He can manage to cycle but walking is difficult

Needs must, he drives to the cemetery nearby and walks him slowly there, shadow is content to sniff around, his running days are over anyway

He's like you then, does a lot of reading Daily hound, K9 times are probably top of his list.

We are aware he needs more walks to fulfil his days

But so do we

So both us and the dog remain unfulfilled in freedom to walk

We just have to hope he wouldnít prefer to live elsewhere

Iím sure he is missing the family during Covid

Did I say he likes to be fed a few spoonfuls of his meals on a spoon before he eats it

Been watching to much Tv when wine is tasted and accepted

This is one classy dog, he is a pedigree and donít forget it

Not his fault his owners plebs
