I'm sorry about Ollie, Jabbur. We went through the same thing with our Pippen last year. It's very tough. {{{hugs}}}

He is certainly alert and happy looking. {{{Jabbur and Ollie}}}

We ended up not taking Smudge today, we started a new dry food this morning and she went to town on it. Watchful waiting.

Thanks all. It's so hard to know what to do. If only they could tell us what is wrong.

So glad Smudge is eating tonight PF.

Jabbur, what helped one of our old cockers was when the vet put him on Rimadyl when the old bones started to give out.

Tough times with the Furkids, PF and jabbur. Hang in there and know you guys have a whole slew of people here thinking about your pets.

PF, do you think Shrek might like a few of those kibbles?

-The things we do to accommodate our family members. DxW's dog is 13yo,her breed usually lives til about 9-10. She is getting a litte arthritic and is too heavy to lift into bed. Dx had an extra thick modern mattress. She combed every used store in town for a Clean regular thickness mattress so the dog can now jump back into bed. Yes, those few inches do make a difference. I'm looking for a Wide short stepping stool, because the mattress height will only work for so long and then it's back to square one.

Our pets

Whiska, Beagle uses doggie stairs from Dr. Smith and Foster in order to get into our high bed as she's so small. Some assembly required. Some Walgreens and probably Petco sell doggie stairs. They really help.

Thinking of all of you and the beloved furbabies....gosh, what we wouldn't do for them, if it's at all possible. My little friend will be 15 this summer, and so far so good, but he's getting to be a little more demanding and spoiled. Hims loves to cuddle in my bed.
