Perhaps that is partly why they are so trainable as sniffers/guide dogs etc, in the sense that the reward means so much more to them than other doogies!

one of our doggies passed yesterday. pretty tough on our son.

our surviving dog was breathing weirdly, so we took him into the vet and...he probably has cancer and only a few months left, if that. sheesh.

put dog #2 (simon) down last night. he deteriorated so quickly after dog 1 (charlie) died last week. he was was mostly chipper this week, though, until i got home last night and he couldn't pick his head up without discomfort or pain.

i took this one a lot harder. partly because i thought we had more time with him and had far less time to prepare for his passing than the other one. partly because i picked him out when we first got him and spent the lion's share of time with him. he could be a difficult dog at times; he was a shelter rescue and he was big on chewing stuff he wasn't supposed to and pissing in the house all the time when we weren't home. but he was also very loving and protective.

anyway, this is the first time in maybe 25 years -- not counting the year i was out of town for college -- that i don't have a pet in my house.

that is a very good idea, and an adorable one as well. holy crap! how old are they?

Karl Malone, Saturday, 2 March 2019 22:48 (four months ago) link

theyre each about a year old. luckily my school is v close to the city animal care services so i went after work initially intending to get one dog, but these two dudes were cellmates and brought in at the same time, so i couldnt separate them!

i recommend picking up the beverly hills chihuahua trilogy on the way home as well, this will be essential viewing for your new fam

I went down that path of getting another puppy before thinking too much about it when suffering bereavement. It has been hard work, but I don't regret the decision at all.

how is the sock gobbler

god knows i want to fp (darraghmac), Sunday, 3 March 2019 00:22 (four months ago) link

mar dhea and theres a few round here wouldnt be safe from him indeed

god knows i want to fp (darraghmac), Sunday, 3 March 2019 00:23 (four months ago) link

he's a bit depressed with the new low sock access regime, the intestine recovery rations he's on, lack of off the lead action and the elizabethan head-piece is inflicting psychological duress. I'd like to think the brush with death has instilled a new sense of maturity in him, but as soon as the stitches come out on wednesday he'll be back to his best/worst in no time I reckon, but thank god tbh.

I can't get a new dog till after the summer -- we're having major renovation work done on our house and we have to move out for a few months.

Douglas is 6 months old today. ffs I lose the daily count of the amount of times I'm retrieving stones and lumps of chewing gum out of his gob. But he's growing into a real handsome dog for sure.
