Ya got a pic of Daisy? She sounds like she was a wonderful companion.
I used to have one of her and my brother, but I think it was with the stuff my ex and her boyfriend stole. But, yeah, she was an awesome dog. Smart as a whip, too- I could tell her go get the frisbee, and she would jump through the window of my car if it was in the back seat, or stand by the trunk and wag her tail if it was in there. She always remembered where it was put last time we used it. I even tried to trick her a couple of times, but it never worked. She was just too smart!
I've wanted a Golden most my life. Never had one, other pups came my way. That looks like one sweet girl. Mr Piglet on the left is my faux golden I guess. They are both 15 and blind now. Not much time left at this point...
We have a 16 yr old also, a mix. We thought she was done many months ago. She would have mild seizures and trip and fall but was in no pain. To our surprise the seizures are gone but so is that little brain. She walks around slowly, happy as can be, walking in and out of the same door over and over then finding someone for some attention. She can hardly see, is nearly deaf but loves being around us. We have to be careful we don’t kill her by falling on her because she is so unaware and is underfoot constantly.
I have said it before, the worst thing about dogs is they break your heart every 10 or 15 years.
If cats could text you, they wouldn't.
The world IS NOT flat. If it was, the cats would've pushed everything off of the edge by now.
Dogs have masters, cats have staff.
Mine has a servant, but at least she gives me a room to store guitars in.
Just don't leave your guitar case open if the cat's in the room.
My two german shepherds died in 2016 and 2017 and I think of them every day, but as much as I'd like a new friend like the old guys, I can't go through that heartache again.
Yeah, the little girl on the right is underfoot constantly. The male just sleeps all day. But even though blind, she would follow me everywhere. Even find me working outside 150 feet away. Good nose. But she has heart/lung issues as of a few months ago now and on meds after a $2500 emergency problem. . Gets too winded so we keep her inside mostly.
Exactly! Guitar cases are the greatest nap spots in the known universe!
Winded, we thought that our old girl was getting winded because she often times sounded like she was making obscene heavy breathing phone calls. As it turned out we discovered that it is not uncommon for old dogs to breath like that due to a narrowing of the trachea.
Right now I miss our Bella so bad.
yeah, she went to the cardiologist. Turns out she has this thing where the arteries in the lungs are narrowed and not getting enough blood through to get oxygen. No cure. She's on Viagra for it!.... and one other thing. Pants all the time except sleeping at night.
had a black lab given to me, years ago. he was one of a litter of 9 and only two survived. they were named Jake and Elwood. Jake had the most gentle mouth I've ever encountered. would pick up the newspaper and not leave a smudge... he did tend to grind the paper across the sidewalk when jumping to get it tho... took him to a beach once, with his orange tennis ball. he lost the ball in the waves but brought me a rock of the same color. such a goof. miss him now. thanks for reminding...
Sorry to hear that, most of us have been there, or someplace like it with our dogs. You are doing good by her.
I lost my big Pyrenees/Lab Abbie almost two years ago. As much as it hurt (and it still does) I'd have another dog in a split second. I watched a show recently with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, and in the song "Mr. Bojangles" there's a line that says, "After twenty years he still grieves". So true, but it's also said "Better to have loved and lost than never have loved at all." They give us their unconditional love for only a short time. It's not too much for us to share that love with another when they go on. I'm hoping that "The Rainbow Bridge" is true and I'll have a pack of drooling goobers waiting for me.
They are the best! Maisie has seen 23 (or 24) states, 3 provinces, and countless hours in the studio ...
Cape Spear, St. John's, NL -- it was very windy!
