    Stroller / Cart / DIY recommendation for 9Y0 Raven w/ hip dysplasia

    Hi Folks. Our 9Y0 103lb newfie, Raven, has severe hip dysplasia and is very limited on her ability to take walks (1/4 mi at best). I was thinking of getting an XL pet stroller or even possibly modifying a yard cart, although I'm not sure I want to pull a cart vs pushing a stroller. Have any...

    Merry Christmas!

    Just stopping by to share a pic of the dogs. Raven is loving having a new puppy around. We didn't realise just how depressed she was after losing Rocky in May. They were so very close so I guess it makes sense. We miss Rocky so much but Rio is bringing us so much joy and keeping us so busy! She...

    Raven is a big sister :)

    We have a new member in our household. Meet Rio. She is a 9 week old Clumber Spaniel. Our house has been so sad since losing Rocky in May. I have liked Clumbers for a while and figured it was time to downsize our breed. They have a lot of similiar traits as Newfs. Raven is being so sweet with...

    Rocky 1/07-5/17

    Some of you may recall that Rocky was diagnosed with lymphoma last July and was treated with chemo and went into complete remission. :) Unfortunately, about a month ago the cancer reared it's ugly head and we decided to treat with steroids only after careful consideration with quality of life...

    Rocky is 10!

    Such a happy day here! Didn't think we would be fortunate to celebrate double digits with this goofball. So thankful! Rocky is doing amazingly well and we are just thrilled. Pizza is his favorite and he was thrilled to get a couple of slices. Raven and Buffy (my Mom's Dog) were here to partake...

    Pics of R&R today

    We try to get Rocky out to a stream or lake at least once a week. Each week he has more energy so we have now begun a twice a week hike. (short) He loves it and it is so good for his mind. I still love that dogs don't know that they are sick and live in the moment. The little white dog is my...

    Complete Remission for Rocky :)

So happy to get the news that Rocky is in complete remission and she also said she couldn't have asked for a better response to chemo for him. :) So very grateful! He is pretty much back to his old self with an occasional...

    Week from hell with Rocky

    So exhausted from all of the ups and downs of the last week. Last Sunday while I was away my husband noticed Rock was peeing blood and stress breathing. Into the vet they went where they discovered abnormal kidney function and planned to do IV fluid challenge next morning. While lifting onto...

    Rocky needs some positive thoughts .

    Rocky is having surgery tomorrow to have two suspicious lumps removed and we are of course nervous for him. It is the right thing to do after looking at all the info we have been provided with and all the testing done on him. One is on his chest and the other along his spine. He is the sweetest...

    Blast from the past.

    I was looking for an old picture for a project I am working on and came across a thread I posted years ago. It is one of my favorites and thought I would share again for all the new people. I scrolled through all of the responses and enjoyed seeing posts from some folks that don't post anymore...

    R&R at Saratoga Chowder Festival

    Every year we attend the local Chowder Festival with the dogs. Basically, many local restaurants compete for the best tasting chowder. You purchase a small cup for a $1 and then vote. I think over 80 different chowders were featured including some dog chowders. :) R&R were surrounded by swarms...
