I remember when our Snoopy was 15. He couldn't play anymore either. I too saw it in his face. Kind of sad. i adopted Sarge back then so our other dog Heidi would have someone to play with. I thought Sarge handled the situation with Snoopy really well. I told Sarge, Snoopy couldn't play heavy duty, that he was old. So Sarge would poke Snoopy in the side, then run back and play with Heidi. Sarge did that all the time. That way Snoopy wasn't left out. Snoopy seemed to be happy with that. We had Snoopy one more year, then it was time to cross the bridge. Snoopy was really smart. He could spell, and we never taught him that. I miss them all, just like you do.

May I always be the kind of person that my dog thinks I am.

Jeanne - The puppies are so big and GORGEOUS to boot! Where has the time gone - I thought they were both quite a bit younger than my little ones, not all about the same age! Your Emma is just as lovely as Cherokee Rose and Blue! I like the look of the hounds, always have.

Brinx is still enjoying life most days I think. Yesterday was hard for him. We had our youngest grand here for the day - no school - and he loves her heart and soul, but these days of course she would rather play with Solo and Gryffindor. I know he feels left out - you can see it in his face and body language, but she doesn't understand that even though he can't play with her like he used to, that he still loves her.

It's hard when our dogs get old, and we can't fix them. I too hope he will be around for his birthday. Give Brinx a hug for me. He is a beautiful boy. Hope you feel better soon. Winter time never helps any. Even we have had a rowdy winter this year. Keep me posted on how you are doing.

I can't believe your pups are two. Wow, where did time go? Do you have their pictures on your page? Hope you can find a good instructor.

Cherokee Rose is two years, 4 months. Weighs 95 pds.


Blue is 1 1/2 years weights 90 pds.


A day before Thanksgiving last year I adopted a Germ Shep mix from the Animal Shelter. She is 2 years. She's small though, only 45 pds. She hadn't been trained at all, so I have been busy with teaching her manners. She has done really well except when she gets super excited. But she is young at heart yet, so it will all come together. I named her Emma.

Thanks for asking Jeanne!

I'm mostly okay - still breathing, so I guess that's a good sign! emoticon emoticon I've been dealing with some major health issues, which have really slowed me down for now at least, but as I said, okay for the most part.

Our Obedience instructor passed away very suddenly last spring, so we're trying to find somewhere else to go for classes. Hard to believe that they are already 2 years old!

Brinx had a major health scare 2 the week before Christmas and has gotten very frail - I have to take it one day at a time with him really, and am hoping he will be here for his birthday on the 22nd - and for a long time afterwards of course. So far the good days are more frequent than the bad days, but I know we're on the "downward slope" at this point...

How are you and your two "little" ones doing?
