Mostly Lab Steve.  Bit of staffy(?) maybe.  Ate like a lab.  Very smart boy and the best I've ever seen
at nicking food from little kids.  Genius.  He'd look totally uninterested until the big moment. 
I really miss my boy.  He had to be put down a few weeks before Xmas and it's probably the hardest
thing I've ever done. 
Lost my dad a few weeks later so it's the worst Xmas of all time just gone.   

Sorry to read that Firezuki.

Thanks Matty.

Oh mate - I'm really sorry to hear that that.

Hopefully the forum can give you a bit of smile when you're in need   emthup

I was surprised - a friend lost German Shepherd he'd had for many years [like a child] went and got a new dog relatively soon after and it's worked out really well - course you'll know when you're ready.

Sorry to hear about your loses Firey :tears: Some of you may remember my posts from a couple of years back when I had to have our old dog put down. It really is one of the hardest things you'll ever have to do. Cried my eyes out all the way to & from the vet.

On a happier note we now have a black lab who looks & behaves a lot like the dog in that clip. Ever since our last dog left us my youngest son has kept the pressure up to get another dog but myself & the wife have held firm claiming he & the other kids are getting older(he's now 17) & will be leaving home in the next few years, leaving us with a dog. Anyway 5 months ago on a Sunday afternoon youngest son & sister stroll in with this black ball of fluff that would make your heart melt. Wife bursts into tears & I just keep repeating NO, NO, NO, NO. They say they'll look after it, feed it, walk it etc etc. I say NO YOU WON'T. All sorts of promises are made & of course we keep the damn thing.

I'm sure all the dog lovers here know the rest of the story :yes: Son & Daughter are never home & Mum & Dad walk feed & look after this georgous animal :nowink:

You guys are right.  I have been thinking about maybe getting another family member and perhaps the time
is right.  It'll probably be a rescued dog because I hate to think about those poor little buggers languishing
in prison - or worse. 
Thanks for the support gang.

Mate - depends on what you want of course - but my friend got a greyhound through the racing program and has worked out beautifully.

Tragedy in Japan: Efforts to Help Animals in Need
OFUNATO, JAPAN - MARCH 15: (JAPANESE NEWSPAPERS OUT) A rescue dog of the United States rescue team searches for survivors on March 15, 2011 in Ofunato, Iwate, Japan. The 9.0 magnitude strong earthquake struck offshore on March 11 at 2:46pm local time, triggering a tsunami wave of up to ten metres which engulfed large parts of north-eastern Japan. The death toll continues to rise and could well reach 10,000 in a tragedy not seen since World War II in Japan. (Photo by Sankei via Getty Images)

The recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan has caused many relief organizations around the world to jump into action. While search and rescue teams and medical units are dispatched to help those in the most ravaged areas, one organization is turning to Facebook to help raise awareness and funds in order to rescue the many displaced and injured animals in the region.

Dog Bless You, a part of the Explore.org organization, has been assisting with animal rescue and awareness since 2006. With a mission “To Champion the Selfless Acts of Animals,” founder Charlie Annenberg has worked towards helping animals in need around the globe.

When the tragedy in Japan struck this past week, Annenberg decided to pool his resources and help in any way he could. He turned to Facebook as his campaign venue of choice, asking for 100,000 people to “like” the Dog Bless You page in return for a $100,000 donation towards Japanese relief efforts.

The response to the campaign was immediate, and the initial goal was met within a week’s time, prompting Annenberg to make an even greater donation of $500,000. “Together, in my opinion, we made history in a pure and beautiful way,” said Annenberg in a video message on the page.

Fortunately, Annenberg is not alone in his efforts. The Search Dog Foundation has deployed several search and rescue teams to assist in the recovery process of both humans and animals. And local rescue groups have also begun their own relief and fundraising efforts to help those animals that have sustained injuries or have become homeless.

Animal Refuge Kansai and Japan Cat Network are just two such organizations that have initiated efforts in their local communities, among many others.

IFAW and World Vets have also been instrumental in sending search and rescue teams to assess the area and being responding to needs. With the rapidly changing conditions in the region, these teams are working towards removing and caring for as many animals as possible and placing them in safer locations.

In the wake of this awful tragedy, The Millan Foundation is donating funds to one or more of the organizations in need via the Daddy Emergency Animal Rescue Fund (DEAR Fund). Details will be announced soon. “This is the very reason we created the DEAR Fund,” Cesar said. “Being able to help in an emergency situation and save lives is so incredibly important. I’m happy we can honor Daddy’s memory by helping others.” The Foundation encourages people to make a donation to the DEAR Fund for its continued support of emergency relief around the world and/or any other organization of choice that is aiding with emergency relief efforts in Japan.

Just got back from the VETS, They seem to be of the opinion the old bugger is a diabetic. Kept in for a few days to do tests and if he is, to get his medicine right.

If he is a diabetic they say he will need to be jabbed twice a day for the rest of his life.

Look after him mate.

My brother has a great little Scottie, and he's gone totally blind in the last 6 months, but he copes, and he has his good mate a Golden Retriever to look after him. He bumps his way around but still enjoys life.

Dogs have an amazing ability to cope with adversity.

A mate had a dog on a property up north who used to chase cars. Ultimately he went to far and was run over. The vet told them he could save him but he would lose a leg and it would cost a bit. They loved the dog so much they paid the money and had the op. He came home after a long stint in the dog hospital and they put him on his favourite rug and gave him all the love they could. Within two minutes a car went past and he got straight up and hobbling on his 3 legs proceeded to chase the car. You gotta love 'em.  :nowink:

Lost my mutt on Monday. He had a stroke on Sunday night and lost the use of his right rear leg which basically made him incapacitated.

He has been in this house as long as we have and it seems bloody empty now.
