I love all these groups that are avialable to join. Dino as a puppy was overweight (my fault) and had lost more than 22 pounds. At present he is 31 lbs and pretty active.

Dino is 8 years old. Coco was 8 years and 12 days when she died. Brother and sister got along really good. No health issues with Dino and he enjoys playing. He got a $100.00 gift certificate from the animal hospital (to be used there). The doctors love Dino and loved Coco.

Glad to find this group!  My older Cardi is 12 years old and starting to show his age.  Nice to find a place to compare notes on taking care of our seniors. I'll have to try and get a good face shot of Efan.  To hell with Bette Davis eyes, Efan has Andy Rooney eyebrows!!!

Losing them is so tough! It is never a good time to lose them but it is really hard to see them in pain. I have had a lot of dogs and cats and people ask me sometimes how you know when it is time to let go. I always say that I have no idea. I have had them put out of their pain and I have had them go suddenly but it has always been terrible. But I always want to do it again. I think that is a tribute to the love we shared!

I still remember that pain and it will take a while to subside. I dont think you ever stop missing them. Clearly it was unexpected which makes it even harder to accept. It has taken me over a year to do my grieving. Dont feel pressured into getting another dog until you are ready. I can empathise with you. Hugs to all.

I'm sorry for your loss! My old man Ein just passed a couple of days ago. I am still in shock, he seemed like he still had some years left in him. He was only 13 or 14. It is never easy, my girls look for him, my dad's dog pines away for him - they were buddies.

Hi all. This is a photo of my beautiful Gemma who died last year at 17.5 years old. She was a very senior dog who ended up having arthritis in her back legs, hips and along her back. It had also crept into her elbows and wrist joints on her front legs. She was losing her sight and had already lost her hearing by the time she died. Sounds like she didn't have much to live for in the end but every day she would rise from her sleep and greet us with a smile. We loved her to bits and still miss her passing. She had her fair share of aging problems to deal with so I hope to be able to offer some useful advice to other owners of aging corgis.

Sparty is still very active at 10 even with arthritis and a partially torn cruciate ligament. He doesn't act silly much anymore unless the tennis ball comes out! I miss the silliness...

Hi - Bunny's food plan, for weight loss is 1/3 cup morning and night of Wellness Senior, plus 1/3 cup pumpkin (no sugar etc) or green beans (usually thawed out frozen), plus fish oil. Two or three times a week she gets Chondrotin, glucosomine, and MSM.
Treats are carrots, usually one a day, ribs from romaine lettuce, celery, fresh green beans that have been tipped, etc (water based veggies). She gets a bit of apple or berries a few times a week. No people food. A roasted beef knuckle bone to chew on for entertainment when I'm in the shower. Very few chews.
When she goes back to vet for a weight check later this month, and to check her torn ACL, we'll review the food thing again.
She's getting her girlish figure back again. Lots of walks in an athletic field with grass where she runs and rolls.
