Well done Stan
Not easy to keep them calm. Great news that Mollie is recovering well.
I get my nose in the face wake up call every morning.
We have Breton friends over for the New Year and my mate has just had his hip done trotting around like a good 'en. No cage for him.
Your poor wee dog Paul, is she allowed out for brief periods?
6 months is a long sentence.

Nice to know that Elliot still loves you Tod. Grin

Aye Tod.
         I was with Cornhill Insurance for years.
  The staff were excellent. It was called Pet Plan back then.

We have the bull dog and the raven insured. Because hhe bull dog will be prone to all sorts (and has already had surgery) and the Raven is outside my OH's technical scope. The rest my OH fixes or we just stump up the cash for big referral bills when they occur (probably 5-6k in the last 3 years).

With 10 dogs, 10 cats and the bird it would be a bit much to insure them all (given we have a vet in the house)

Hi GB,. 
       Diesel grew just like that.i was advised to cut back on the grub and the exercise until his bones hardened up. 2 of his siblings incurred big vetinary fees because their bones began to give serious trouble. It never bothered him even when he was weighing in @ 74kg+ but I did cut back on the car/van travel because I already found out that it was bad for the growing bones.
 Your guy looks exactly like Diesel who was a surprisingly graceful mover and full of beans. He will be 8 in March, the years just fly. I hope your lad does well. I find that if you can take them up , carefully into the 18 months area trouble free then you will be trouble free from then on. It is not quite as straight forward as we think.., Good luck.

He is a handsome lad GB.
Does he still imagine that he is a small pup. Climbing onto your lap?

He does tend to creep along until his head and paws are on my leg like you see there.
As him and his mum are kennelled there's not really a lot of lap crawling in the house Smiley

Sadly. Actually that's not true, it's not at all sad, but the gorgeous tom cat that befriended me at the cat shelter, and which I planned to nab once Scout left, was given a loving home the week before. And in all fairness to the adopter, they saw him first, but had been waiting on a home check. Lots of posted piccies and he looks like he's landed on his feet (as a cat should). Oh well, there is another ex-feral and slight bruiser who is now working hard on my emotions ...... must resist ...... but resistance is futile!

The cat I mention above, fluffy ginger and white called OJ is now famous, as is my left arm!

Schrodinger's Dog?

Got a German Shepherd arriving tomorrow ...... ish!

Got a call from Guide Dogs asking if we could look after a dog (young male in training) for two long weekends (Thurs-Mon), so of course said yes yes yes. But I deliberately didn't ask what type it was. So, theoretically, it's a GSD until I open the front door and find out that it isn't ...... right?  wackoold

Nothing but rain forecast for tomorrow, but hopefully some sunny walks on Friday.

H,,,mmmmmm GB,
                    That looks like a Czech bloodline Shepherd, ?  I see Diesel a lot in your pup, In fact, I collected him in my Trafic and also took out the front seat for a while.
    We worry about Diesel. He is a fantastic mover like your dog will be but there are certain disadvantages in powerful deep chested dogs. When they are young and well kept with regular exercises ,they can keep their tummy muscles taunt and prevent their stomachs from flipping over, Oh It can still happen in a young dog but the likelyhood increases with age, The tummy muscles lose their tension with age and then it can happen. It is partially hereditary but also deep chested breeds are prone. Diesel,s chest was 42" 2 years ago and now that he is 8 years old in March we are watching him like a hawk. Cutting his nails is a major operation, We had a terrible time trying to find a nail cutter but we did fine one where you push the nail through a hole and a blade slides up and slices it off.
    His ears will stick like that, Years ago, I bought a Shepheard in Merseyside and one of his ears refused to straighten out before 6 months. I was advised to line them with cardboard and the dog was quite agreeable but it was a waste of time. He had the floppy tip to his ear for the rest of his life.
