well, how are all of your dogs doing? i mean you have alot right? well, good for you, i am getting one probably this may or in june. of course it is gonna be a yorkie. oh good times, remember when i used to not like you, whew, yeah i was kinda mad that night, so sorry!!!!!!
Im doing pretty good.I have some things goign on right now that are not totally fair.But life isnt fair most the time anyway.If you go back a few pages you will see my posts.They will tell you whats going on.I had to put to sleep our youngest cocker due to a brain tumor.We found a better home for our border collie that we were fostering.We were going to keep her but she needed a job and her and my rottie quit getting along.So now I have my rottie and old cocker.
Cant wait to see your yorkie! They are adorable.There was a little 1 year old yorkie at oru shelter the other day.So sweet and smart!
I remember when we didnt get along! LOL that was the past though!!
How have you been doing?

yeah i am doing good. later on and am looking for houses for sale cuz i may be moving but i will stay on terrific pets(that is a must!) but, yeah i am sad to hear that your youngest cocker had a brain tumor! that sounds devestating! well i'll tell you this, there was a rott next door that i would play with all of the time! his name was kenya and he was a cute little puppy! every day since i came from school, out to the back porch i go! but he died from parasites being in his intestine and he was coughing up blood. i soothed him the last day i saw him, but now he is in rainbow bride...
it was devastating.My mom is still in shock.The dog was only 4 years old.We couldnt understand why she kept attacking my sibs.Thats nice that you cared about your neighbors rottie.They are great dogs.I basically take care of my neighbors 8 year old lab.Hes such a sweety.I walk him,play with him,buy him bones and treats.i wish I could take him when I move.
We jus trecently had a rottie and a cocker also. My cocker dies when he was 16 which was last year, and my rottie was 10 and we had to put her down because she had a tumor bigger than a pumpkin in her stomach, and they couldnt take it out becuase it was connected to too many vital organs. how old is your cocker?
My cocker we had to put to sleep was 4 years old.We had got her from a rescue.My cocker now is 10 years old.I got him from a shelter a year or so ago.I got him when he was 9.He was supposed to be put to sleep in a couple days.He had sat in there for 6 months.His original owners brought him in because they couldnt afford his meddical problems.He got adopted and then returned becuase of the same reason.So we adopted him.I told my parents that if they let me have him they wouldnt have to take care of him or give me a christmas.We got him knowing he had ear infections and a heart murmur.he was supposed to have a grade 3 heart murmur but it was only a grade 1.His ear infections were from food allergies.He has a thyroid problem that he takes meds for twice a day.He has a broken knee cap that we cant do anything about.He is extremely arthritic.He has sepration anxiety really bad.He has skin problems and is still over weight.Hes a good boy though and has the best temperment! He has never tried to bite or gowl.He is almost completely deaf now and his eye sight is poor.We have to keep his ears super glued up or his ears get sore and red.We have to keep him shaved down to because he cant walk as well with it all on. People always ask me if I have learned my lesson about getting old sickly dogs.I tell them I would do it all over again.The vet said Bear had so much infection in his body that he would have died in a month.He also said that he would think Bear was 13 or so If we hadnt had his actual birthday.Hes covered in warts and fatty tumors too.
The vet said he wont live near as long as a normal cocker.He told me to not expect him to live more than two more years.Got to love the old man though!
Im sorry to hear about your dogs! Thats really sad.
