Muffy would have had that Cuddy on the floor, the hound has much to learn still.

We used to have a German Shepherd mix who could sense the change in air pressure when food dropped on the floor. Out for the count upstairs and she'd still be down in time to catch whatever it was before it had time to leave a stain. After she died, we realised how inconvenient it was having to bend down and pick things up ourselves.

When I had my first two kids we had dogs, sadly had to rehome them for few reasons.

then I had the third kid and realised how messy weaning actually was 🙈😂

Yes. If times get tough over winter we can use him as firewood.

If you fit a roller skate it might not get so tired.

over the past year our dug started to struggle with his back legs. we tried loads of options including hydrotherapy, moving/massaging his legs when he lay down, laser treatment, as well as antibiotics. however he was 15 years old and arthritis had just gotten the better of him - he was a medium/bigger sized dog and the signs were all there that his legs would go. he now has lost all use of his back legs. 

However we got him a dog carriage and he cuts about as happy as anything. its such a joy knowing that however long he has left, he can still go out for walks and we don't need to consider putting him down to sustain quality of life (at least for arthritis anyway). Its an absolute pain lumphing him about the house when he is not in the carriage but although it was a wee bit pricey, it was worth it:

aye he is. we got him from SSPCA Cardonald about 6 years ago. he was  about10 at the time  and was in there for a wee while as no one was taking him case of his age. He had lived with an elderly couple all his life and one died and the other got put into a home - hence he ended up in Cardonald. Cause he had lived with this old couple he had pretty much adopted all their habits - wanted to go to bed at 8pm and everyone in the house to follow suit; if folks were over and staying late, he would just stare at them as if to say "alright, that's plenty, oot". Gets up around 5am and always trying to get on buses that pull into bus stops as you are walking past with him. Ha. 

anyhow, since we got him, he has moved on from buses and loves sitting in the car with the window down - head out. His preference is riding shotgun but makes do with the back if the missus is  about:

No pictures un/fortunately but my wife and I rented a canoe yesterday and took our dog with us, I was sat in the back of the canoe, wife in the front with our dog Saint. We did this last summer and all went well, Saint was happy to sit in the middle and barked at other boats passing by.

This year Saint decided she needed to jump from the front to see me in the back, of course she fell in the river, my wife couldn't grab her, I reached over to try and of course fell in too (though in years to come this story will no doubt change to me diving in like an Olympian) my primary school life saving training kicked in and I backstroked to the shore with Saint on my chest. She was soaked and cold for the rest of the trip and seemed pretty shaken up by the whole thing, until we found a big stick for her to chew on and it was all forgotten about. Some girl!

Our old boy Jake came from a similar situation. Wee old guy had just lost his wife and was moving into sheltered housing so wasn't allowed to take Jake with him. We got him from the Dogs Trust rather than the SSPCA though.

Your old guy looks a bit like my first dog. She came from the Dogs Trust as well and was majestic af.
