Leith, we got him at 9.5 years from the dog rescue. He lived his life in a cage as a breeder with papers. Didnt need him anymore as he was replaced by one of his sons.
18 months is all the time we had with him. Wow what an impact he made. Watching this ol boy making up for lost life was just so incredible. He was a big boy. We have a doggy door. We are on 5 acres. He would get up in the morn before anyone else and go out and cover the fence line for 15 mins. He was so excited he would come through the doggy door that hard hed nearly take the door off! Hed come in to the bedroom and stand there with so much excitement it was awesome. Every morning.
In that 18 months we spent a fortune on him through the vets. Thousands and thousands of dollars. Not one cent wasted. He was worth every penny. Unbelievable value!
People, don’t disregard a homeless pet and def dont disregard an older dog.
Good on ya AUSSIEADV! Respect & admiration for anyone who takes on older dogs & gives 'em a comfortable life.
Speaking of old dogs, poor old Ruben (the one on the right) finally admitted defeat today and stopped whining and struggling to get out of the trailer to show he was still capable of running. When we got him I probably overdid it on bike rides but he seemed to have limitless endurance. He starts limping on his front left leg with too much running now.
They haven't quite got the message about distancing
On the beach again earlier this evening.
Been retired for five plus years now living alone in an apartment, the plan all along is the tree change, currently held up for unexpected reasons, however, amongst the reasons i'm really looking forward to in the new life is along with a couple of horses will be a couple of dogs. My grandson is nine, loves dogs but not in a position to have one, he's looking forward to spending time in my future plans, asked me what kind of dog will i have, my answer is the first dog i see that needs a home, the smile that came over his face told me his heart was in the right place.
My advice to anyone thinking of getting a dog is get two (or more) dogs. It makes them so much happier to have their own little pack rather than be focused on humans - especially if they'll be left to their own devices for extended periods.
All good dogs get a turn
But some are keener than others
Not long ago, I walked outside and couldn't find Willow in any of her usual spots near the house. Then I spotted her sitting out in the adjacent paddock, keeping an eye on those pesky cows & calves in case they get up to mischief.
Notice there's a watch cow keeping an eye on her too
That's a calf, they are still curious about & a bit wary of Willow but the cows mostly ignore her as they know she's all bark & no bite.
Time for a rest under the shade of a little kurrajong on our bushwalk
Hey, dad, can we find some yabbies? Can we, can we, can we, can we?
Ahhhhhhh! There's zillions of 'em!
My co-worker on a working trip at Jingellic.
Did someone say, "Fetch"?
