found WATER.....NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.......






Too late.
Haha I know this feeling. Our park has been wet all summer, with three big puddles that have stayed throughout the year. They STINK! If I see Mable running towards one, it generally goes like this...

"mable, come. Mable, get here! MABLE! MABLE, COME HERE. MABLE GET OUT THAT PUDDLE AND COME!. STOP ROLLING AND COME HERE, NOW!. - Ending up with a wet, smelly, muddy dog who knows she has done wrong and runs away when I try and cath her. Some times she pretends to run towards the puddle because she knows she gets a treat if she comes when I call her. Sometimes shes a tt and just wants to get muddy!.

Another one that knows that too, Sash is a cheeky cow when she see's water, will always end up in it no matter what else is on offer! She has even left the other half stranded on top of the cliffs as she has leged it down to go in the sea, only the tide was out, so had a play in the sand / mud that you get on the north kent coast... Only she 'couldn't' (most likely wouldnt the lazy sod) g back up the cliffs, so the OH had to get down then run with her all the way around the headland to Herne bay, then back up the foot path to the car park! Sahs gets home, has a shower, then goes and lays down all sweet and demure!

We got a pug this week, handsome chap but only 10 weeks old so not taken him out yet.



I grew up on a council estate so the naff collar is a nod to that biggrin
Pugs are awsome, Humphrey our 10 year old male is lovely and I love him to bits.

They are real family dogs and love being with members of the family to the point of actually being a pain and getting in the way.

Sadly Humphrey has a problem with his back and is unable to feel his back legs, he has wheels now for his walks and loves going out in them.

You will have many fun years with yours.

Hmmm, more pics will take me a week, at least!
We're not too sure, although the vet thinks he's about 2. We rescued him after he was found tied to a tree in the middle of the Desert (Dubai). He was the lucky one, as his brother was found hanging by his neck from the same tree. (C***S). Tank also has a lump on his ribcage which appears to be a couple of broken ribs, no doubt from being kicked. Despite all of the sh!t he has been through, he truly has the biggest heart in the world. People are pretty scared of him, and we've had some workmen who wouldn't come in when they see him, but after 10 seconds of tickles, he's everyone's best mate.
Remarkable fella..love 'im!

How could someone do that to a bulldog (or any dog for that matter) ?
Bulldogs are great, some people are afraid of Mossy but he's the most harmless ball of fat alive.
I look forward to more photos of Tank. How does he cope with the Dubai heat?

Look at that little fella!!!! He's gorgeous! Look at those eyes....beautiful!
Tank loves the heat, but he can't cope with it! He'll sunbathe for hours if you let him, but we get him in after 5 minutes for a break. He won't swim either. I dragged him into the pool once....2 minutes later I looked like I'd been attacked by a knife weilding nutter!

Moss won't swim either, he's scared stiff of water.
When we bring him for a walk beside the canal, he gets really thirsty. He'll walk over to the bank to get some water but gets scared before he gets to it, so he backs away from it, he'll keep slowly walking up to it and then backing away. You'd swear he was summing up the courage to sky dive or something.
I end up scooping the water up with my hands for him.

Humphrey in his new favourite spot, he is no longer allowed up on the bed or upstairs due to accidents so we dug out his old dog bed and combined with his favourite blanket he has a new place to chill and sleep:

Yes it's genetic, chances are his brothers and sisters will have the same problem.

Back at the beginning of last year on his walks we could tell he was struggling a bit but I put it down to getting old and maybe a bit of arthritis, plus occasionally he would come back with a bit of blood on his back paws.

In February the wife took him to the vets for a bit of a check up and the vet could tell straight away what was wrong with him, degenerative myelopathy, it's basically a spinal chord problem resulting in muscle weakness and lack or coordination in the back legs. The vet said that whilst it wouldn't kill him eventually he would need to be put down as it would either affect his breathing or more likely he would become incontinent and its just not nice for them, she said he wouldn't make his 10th birthday in June.

Well it's now October and he's doing better than ever. At the beginning of the summer we discussed putting him down as he was so miserable due to not being able to go for walks, he just moved around like a seal does dragging his back legs along behind him and looked thoroughly depressed.

The wife did a bit of research online and found a set of wheels that hold his back legs up enabling him to move around and go on walks, it was a longshot but the cost was worth the gamble.

Well since getting the wheels he is a new dog, he goes on them for a walk a day and indoors he doesn't have them and it's almost as if his whole state of mind has changed too as he can get back up on his hind legs and move around on them, they go all over the place and he can't feel them but he can get pound indoors fine without dragging them.

We have the odd wee and poo accident indoors even though routines are in place to try and stop it, he can hold it in but if he is distracted such as getting excited or for food he will wee but its fine and only happens once or twice a week.

So much for not reaching his 10th Birthday.

Pugs are great, they are fantastic characters, they need a firm hand as they can be stubborn but don't shout at them as they are sensitive.

You will love your time with him, what's his name?

He's called Chester, our local vet has his sister so they were reunited today when he went in for an injection. He's a good lad, he seems to celebrate waking up from a nap with another nap though biggrin
