Tia and Tasha

My two dogs, Tia and Tasha, are basically my life. I love them so much.

Tasha is about 12 and I'm worried she's not going to be with us for much longer :(

I love them both, here's a picture of them a couple of years ago.

Comment from Pauline (Web Owner)

It's so sad when our beloved companions are nearing their 'Winter years'. I can't bear to think about it without tears welling up in my eyes.

When I read your words, I did just that - I couldn't help it, it sounded so sad and painful.

Perhaps now is the time to sit quietly with your dogs - give them lot's of extra-lovely cuddles and look into their eyes. Tell them how much you love them and that you'll miss them. It won't make them any younger, but I'm sure they'll understand what you're saying - and it will make you feel a lot better too.

Why not take some more photographs to help you keep your warm memories alive?

Let's hope you have many more good years with both Tia and Tasha!

Don't Give Up Hope
by: Jason

Don't give up hope Courtney. My cocker spaniel lived to the ripe old age of 15 - yes, 15 years old - and he battled on until the end. He walked everywhere, although he slowed down a bit towards the end, but that's to be expected isn't it?

We all have to go sometime, but I think your dogs have a lot of life left in them yet.

Please do not despair. My cocker spaniel, Suzie, is 16 years old - full of arthritis, cataracts on both eyes, slightly deaf but... she loves her short walks, as they are now, and eats well - both breakfast and evening meal.

She sleeps by my bedside in her own bed, snores a lot and has lots of tummy noises. Suzie does struggle a little with the stairs but she gets there.

I work at a Hospital and I always remember a Physiotherapist telling me never to live in a bungalow as your legs become very weak. So whilst Suzie is making the stairs I know she is still strong.

I love my old girl. She is the seventh cocker spaniel I have owned and she's the longest living and the best for temperament and a great all rounder.

I hope she makes twenty, I really do, she, like yours are, is my life and I love her so much.

Good Luck and don't tick them off yet, there may be a long way to go.
Best wishes Chris Jefferson.
