Dusty's story.

Hi, we have had four dogs, two at a time, and broken hearts when their time was up. We were not going to have any more pets. Dusty was given to my Mom for Christmas in 1997. Dusty, or Dusty-Boo was Grandma's dog until September 2005 when my Mom / Grandma passed away. Dusty became my Dad's dog. Dusty was getting pretty old and so was Grandpa. In Feburary 2011, Grandpa [3 months short of 98 passed away] And Now Dusty is my dog. [Mine and Lee Lee's] Dusty was only driven in a car for a few miles to get to the Vet. or the doggie parlour. Now Dusty / Dusty-Boo / and Boo-Boo, is what I call him now is on an Airstream trip of about 9,000 miles so far. Boo-Boo is/was one year older than any of our dogs lived. This has been one real experience for Bob, Lee, and Dusty. [Boo-Boo] Our story is in "On the road" and called "Bob and Lee's random trip"

Clancy Boy on left and Boudreaux on right. Clancy has been gone 3 years now but not a day goes by I don't think of his 13 years as my best friend and Boo's buddy. Boo is still holding out - still has that strut - just a little slower.

We were on our way to a rally with both in on the back seat - they didn't care where, they were just happy to be going.

Whew - the dust in this room - gotta go wash my face now.............. Miss you boy.

There's nothing like a good old dog, and nothing worse than loosing them.

Had a scare with my old girl as this weekend. Went to call her in, and she couldn't get up. Fortunetly she came through this time She is the first dog that I called mine/hers and at 13 (and 110 pounds), I know its going to be sooner than later...

Shane, Robert, All,
Thank for your kind words of sympathy. They ARE appreciated. And yes, this room IS VERY dusty.

Deramaxx NSAID for Dogs

We have a 14 year old chocolate lab who was experiencing many of the same symptoms mentioned in this thread. The vet recommended Deramaxx 75 mg once a day. They must taste good, because he looks forward to his pill! We noticed a huge improvement immediately. He was having extreme difficulty getting up, didn't want to go for a walk, could no longer climb the stairs and was panting heavily. We know this is probably his last year with us, I say with tears steaming down my face, but we wanted him to be as comfortable as possible. Ask your Vet about it.

Bruce, I'm so sorry about your Alexandra. I'm glad you were with her at the end, and hope those good memories help ease the hurt. We lost two of our cats last year, and I miss them a lot, but I am so glad they were able to be a part of our family for 9 years.

Shane, thanks for this thread. Life really is better with fur babies.

Nicely put Shane........ darn pollen

But with 980 posts, you should know that somebody was going to ask for a picture. I don't ask for myself, but my pups want to see a picture.

So true.

There is a pawprint magnet out there, that says "Who rescued who?". Going to have to have it.

I have one similar that says "You had me at woof".

🏡 🚐 Cherish and appreciate those you love. This moment could be your last.🌹🐚❤️

Roxie found us almost a year ago on the internet. She was a puppy mill mom, she's just the best ever, and loves people, children and other pups. Never thought we'd take another after our 13 year old Pete passed, but she knew we were missing out on something ... great.
