This is Rocky , we rescued him as a puppy
Some bastard was mis treating him
A fucking puppy for fuck sake
No fucker wanted him cos he was a mongrel
He was near 18 when he was put down
But he was clever n loving as fuck , but silly at the same time
That's where he would sleep at the foot of the bed guarding me , he would even know hours b4 I did , when a seizure was coming , we still have his remains in an urn
My dog has spent the night chucking her ringer up at various points around the house.
I can only assume she had a premonition about the Jacks grabbing the last play-off spot.
Luckily we were 2-0 up and coasting when the first load was deposited, otherwise I might have ignored it for 45 minutes and been in bother with the Mrs.
She is now out the back barking at fuck all in the garden, so seems in good enough spirits.
Whats this here? i though Glos had posted a picture of a women with her legs spread or something for a laugh when I first glanced the picture.
he love snacc
but most of all, hairdryer he attacc
My dog pulled up over the fields yesterday with her right back leg going. She had a slight limp on left back leg since she pulled up last year, which she really seemed to have got over. She is not yellping or looking miserable, and was still wanting to get around at normal speed. i picked her up and took her back to car, putting her down at times and she seemed to get around but it looked difficult for her, as she cant put full pressure on the left leg.
She can't get through the dog flap now and cant leap up on settee or get up on her back legs to get a treat, and can't get up the stairs to greet me in the mornings.
Think i am going to have to use the vets i am not too confident with in Barry as they have all her history. Also found out that she is older than we thought. Maybe 13 or 14 as opposed to 10 or 11. But yoU would not think it with her energy levels and fitness.
When her left leg had the problem last year the vets quoted a grand for cruciate ligament surgery/operation, which i thought was not needed.
Any advice please guys.
First thing check her pads. Any stone, thorn, glass or wotnot.
Funny question I know, is her poo the same as usual. A few years ago my little guy started limping. A few days later he started shitting everywhere. Completely runny. He'd picked up a tick.
From my experience avoid the vets on Broad street complete shysters.
Oh yeah give her a cwtch from me.
Heddlu dog gets confused at @BLUE TUESDAY house.

Does sound like that could be her cruciate mate. My dogs has gone. We put him under house arrest as told to me by the vet. He's been in for weeks only going in the garden for the toilet. The rest of the time he's been in the same room. The vet said ideally he should be in a cage. This is supposed to give scar tissue the chance to form and save him the £900 operation.
He's not limping anymore but I don't think it's worked completely. He chased a cat that came in the garden and was limping after for an hour so it's still sore. I'm taking him to the vets in the week for the vet to look again. So to compare to your situation you could try what the vet told me, 4 weeks, strict no running, no playing and let scar tissue form. Otherwise it's an op.
My dogs young so I think he'll need the op as he's got years of running ahead of him. Yours is older. If it heals after 4 weeks rest good enough so she can walk would that be a good outcome at her age? Is an op at that age the best? Will it just go again first time she runs then? don't know, only you can decide that.
The op is meant to be straight forward enough, but any op is best avoided so perhaps try the 4 week solution first. My vet said it's painful and gave my dog pain killers, he had a few but he's not interested at all. More interested in trying to play or fight the others so I don't know just how painful it is. Doesn't stop him at all I suspect like yours. Dogs are great maskers of pain though. Tough call. Me I'd go to the vets and get some pain relief and try the 4 weeks rest because of her age. The vet might say different. Good luck whatever you decide.
Why the mare ? @Mrs Steve R ?
Didn't even know I'd done that, must have hit it on my phone
Wanted to get out the house with the little 'un and the dog today and it turns out they let you take your dog on the Aquabus down the bay...
Wow what a coincidence. Tyson Fury was also on the boat with his dag!
I'd love to take the dog to a beach one of these days, does anyone know of one that is dog friendly and not too far away?
