    Why, Angus?

    I don't know why he likes to sleep halfway out of his bed... silly coot. Angus, the wonder dog, is 12 years old and still going. 13 months past his cancer diagnosis. Vet can't believe he's still with us. We didn't bother to pay for another scan. We can feel the cancer. But he's still the...

    Off!

    You give a dog an inch, he takes a mile. Off! Pretty please? With cherries on top? Angus: No.

    Angus at 11 months post cancer diagnosis.

    So, Angus will turn 12 next month. By then, it will be over 1 year after his cancer diagnosis where-in the vet told us he has at most 1 month of life left to live. Well, here he is today, for the first time in his life, jumping up on the "couch". I don't know what got into him. He can barely...

    Inflation and Prey-Model Raw

    Hi All - So I just went on my monthly shopping for dog food. This time, I went with "common" meat sources and no "exotics". Spent my normal at the exact same butcher shop I've been going to for the past 10-ish years and realized I ended up with only 23 days of dog food. Usually, for this...

    Angus, the wonder dog.

    Y'all may have seen my post last year that my beloved dog, Angus, was diagnosed with cancer. He was diagnosed last July and the vet told us other dogs with his case usually only has a month or less before the cancer debilitates his internal organs causing his death. Well, it's been 6 months...

    Angus has terminal cancer. 😭

    Today is a very hard day. Angus is my last surviving family dog. He turns 11 on Saturday. We took him to the vet after I noticed an enlargement of his belly and a lack of luster of his fur. He is still the same happy Angus albeit he tires so much quicker. But then he is an old dog now. The...

    Angus jumped off the pier...

    I shared the crazy story about my first bulldog, Bullie (passed away last September), who has this weird fascination with water. You can't put her close to the pool because she will jump in. And she can't swim. But she doesn't care - she will jump in. My other bulldog, Angus, never did that...

    Angus... why?

    This is the only dog I've ever had in my long life who'd rather sleep on the floor than on a bed. You can plop him on the comfy couch and he'd jump right off. And, of course, he'd much rather dig up the yard and sleep in the dirt.

    Angus, the lonely dog.

    He's really taking Bullie's death hard. When Gizmo died last January, it affected both Bullie and Angus but Bullie has always been an independent spirit and Angus is always just following Bullie's lead so it didn't seem to be this "at a loss" look on Angus. With Angus being our lone dog, he is...

    Bullie, we love you.

    Bullie passed away in her sleep last night. It went quick. She refused food and water the whole day and just wanted to rest. I knew then it was time. All the way to the end, she didn't want to cuddle. Just wanted her customary butt rubbing. She was a proud Queen bulldog. The best of them...

    Bullie turned 13 years old

    She is old. But still spunky. Still digs holes in the garden. Still bullies her 10 year old brother. She turned 13 last week. And it's starting to show. Yesterday, she stumbled on her hind legs walking on the uneven pavers. This worried me greatly. We've tried to maintain her and her...

    Bullie and Angus

    Here are my 2 english bulldogs: Brown - Bullie (12 years old, will be 13 in August) Black - Angus (8 years old, will be 9 in July) I haven't posted about them in a few years because we had a major issue with my son's allergies. We were faced with the decision to put up the dogs for adoption. I...

    Long Time, No Post...

    Hi All - I know I haven't posted here in a long, long time. I decided to go ahead and post today to let y'all know that my best buddy Gizmo (bichon frise) passed away on the very last day of January. He was 13 years old. Everything was fine, he was his normal spunky self, nothing to indicate...

    New vet - great guy - says Advantage, Advantix, Frontline are useless

    Yep. Says it's been around too long it's now was effective as water on fleas. I thought that was the reason for Advantage II but he says that's just as useless... So, I got activyl because that's what he said to get. I'm like okay... that's just fine. I haven't had any problems with fleas...

    The Three Stooges - PMR Raw

    Bullie, Angus, and Gizmo. They're still as beautiful as ever. Being on PMR, I can't keep Bullie and Gizmo's muzzles white... they get "blood stains" however much I wipe.

    Took a quick shot while playing today... Presenting, the new trim and sexy Bullie... and her sidekick, Angus. And here's a shot with Gizmo the bichon who is looking more and more like a street mutt with his scraggly hair.

    My heart is aching. My son's Pediatrician gave me a serious talk about my son's dog allergies...

    We've had dogs before we've had kids. So the kids are basically born into a dog world. My kid has F1 allergies among other things but we've been managing it ok so far. We were positive that he would eventually grow out of it. Now he's 10. His new allergy tests are here and he still has bad...
