      Our old dog passed away 12 months ago and anyway we have finally got round to getting a new dog.

      He is from Bucharest - there is a UK charity called Paws2Rescue and he wasn't very well so we've been waiting for a couple of months for him to make the journey.  Anyway he has been renamed from Hadi to Mike (kids choice) and is about 7 months old.

      When we got our first puppy there was just me and the missus, but now with a 4 year old and 1 year old in the house it is technically chaos in our house!

      Great story that mate,dogs are a great addition to family life as you probably know.
      Lost my dog a few years ago after having her for 14 years and trying to convince my better half to let me get another only problem is she is more of a cat lover,keep us posted on how your dog is settling in.

      Gorgeous dog mate.

      I've got a German Shepherd (Barney) who is quickly approaching his 4th birthday...

      He's a nightmare at times, but also a huge softy. He loves a good bark from time to time in the garden but it's made worse by the fact that surrounding our garden are other houses who all have dogs :D

      What he looked like the night we got him...



      What he looks like today...

      He really has. He had an operation to remove a piece of chipped bone in his shoulder a couple of years ago so he still has moments where he's not fully comfortable relying on his front left leg for balance so bends down. What breed are the girls?

      I wanted a German before we got my Blue Heeler for my birthday. They said it would too high maintenance but in the end we got probably the biggest lunatic in the canine world :D (Wouldn't trade him for the world now, though).

      I love German's so much. Amazing dogs.

      My Oscar has taken a turn for the worse since Friday.  Not sure how much longer he'll be with us.

      He's been slowly deteriating since January, his sight, hearing, his legs but until Friday was still able to have a decent walk and get upstairs.  He's stopped eating, even his favourite treats, and can barely stand up now never mind walk.

      He turned 14 last week so he's had a good, long life but no matter how much you prepare yourself it's upsetting knowing he'll be leaving us soon.

      There's a pic of him in here somewhere, I'll post it up again when I find it.  Such a beautiful lad, so intelligent and funny and a smile that lights up his face.

      its a terrible time and its so hard to know what to do but generally we seem to know instinctively what is best for our friend and family member. Hope he perks up.
