Hope everything is okay :goodvibes:.

Hi guys - and thanks for thinking of us! Bobby, Amber, Shadow and I have been having some ups and downs and I think I've only been on this site once in about 3 months!

Bobby is still up and down - some good days (like today) and some bad days (like yesterday). Sometimes he is good one minute and crashes the next; some nights are good some aren't - so my time is pretty much spent with the animals.

Hazel, I have to comment on your signature - about how we live life - Bobby just drove that home to me a couple of days ago. He and I were walking along the bank - shoreline just below. Bobby kept stopping and just gazing across the harbour; once he sat down and just looked out - that made me realize I was too concerned about his passing instead of living each moment we have - so now that's what we're doing!

Amber is, well, Amber - full of life, full of beans and a wonderful companion. Shadow is still a little miffed at me because I've changed his food from constant kibbles to wet food twice a day and a tiny bit of kibble at night. He is now starting to eat the wet food but his disdain is still apparent :)

Thanks again and I hope I'll be able to spend a little more time here again soon!

The passing of my first dog taught me that, Jan--they don't think about dying, just about what new smell is around the corner and patiently waiting for things to get better... It just struck me what a great attitude Gauge had about life in general :dog:

So yes, enjoy every moment and store up those happy memories. And I hope you have lots of time quality time left with Bobby :goodvibes: Glad to hear that he's better again today! :grouphug:

Good to hear from you Jan :grouphug:

I hope Bobby has far more better days than not :goodvibes:

I'm happy to hear all is well with Amber & Shadow :)

Good to hear from you and glad that Shadow and Amber are doing well. I totally hear you with Bobby although it is much worse for you as he is still a young dog :sad:. Lucy is also teaching me to just value the time we have, it's a good lesson :grouphug:. Hopefully Bobby continues to have lots of good times :goodvibes: :fingerscr :goodvibes:.

Just adding my good wishes for you and Bobby. :fingerscr :goodvibes: :goodvibes: :grouphug:

Glad to hear that Amber and Shadow are doing well. :thumbs up

Take care. :2huggers:

I think that's a great attitude to have. Enjoy the time you have left with him and treasure it.

Animals sure do teach us great lessons! It's a constant process and I'm thankful I'm at least open to learning!

We're just getting ready to go to the Beach - it's a hot one today so we'll get there and home before the heat hits full force!
