    Default Do you think it's weird...???

    Vegas will be 3 the end of the month. He needs his anal glands done (bad) so I made an appt. this Friday for our vet. I went ahead and scheduled his 3 year check up since were going to be there. I am HATING the fact that he will be 3!! I know EB's do not have a long life-span and it makes me so sad that he is another year older. I started stressing last month that this month he would be 3. Just wanted to know if anyone else thinks this?

    Oh and even at the ripe old age of 3, he still sucks his Stinky Monkeys nose nightly.

    Well I try not to think about it, My BeBe is 5 years old, so she is about half way through her life already.

    I know how you feel ... when Maggie turned three it made me anxious .. and now in December she turned four and if I think about it too much it makes me feel sick in the stomach. Mainly because with all her neurological problems we are unsure of how long we will have her.

    Basically, I just try and not think about it now!!!

    Just think of Tinkerbell, my foster who was adopted at the end of last year .... Tinks made it to 12 years old before she sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago. So there are bullys out there who live longer than the expected 10 year average. Maybe, with all this newfound knowledge about the good food we need to feed them and the advances in medicine we will be able to see our babies live longer than they did in the past!!!

    I LOVE him!!

    Yes, I had (still do) always stressed the day I would lose one of my babies -- when Nitschke past, I was worthless for a whole week. I did not sleep or eat for days. Everything we did to make sure he was healthy and happy, I had always figured we'd at least make it to age 10 with him. Banks has always been in great shape.. minors issues (yeast, UTI, colitis) but since Pookie happen so suddenly - I tend to enjoy her more each day.

    Sweet Vegas knows there is no age limit to doing suckie! Mack still nurses on my leg when we do uppy, Ruggles on his rope leash before our daily walk. That is one way our big, bad boys are comforted! Vegas has many years left, don't worry, enjoy them!

    I cherish those birthdays. I have a soft spot in my heart for older bulldogs...and as long as they are in good health...they just grow more loveable and endearing with each birthday

    There is no one more conscious of how short their time is than me. Every night I go to bed and thank God that today was a good day and pray for another one tomorrow. I don't know when it will happen. They can't even tell me if it will be a slow progression to the shut down or if it will happen all at once. For now I am content to treasure every second that we have with her.

    I think that's all any of us can do really. Those of us with healthy pups and those of us nursing the sick ones. None of us come with expiration dates. But wouldn't it be nice if we did!
