An Old Dog
This is one of our dogs, Scooby. He is a Great Dane/Lab mix and we got him from a Dane rescue when he was just 9 months old.
Boy, did he give us a run for our money.
He tore out all but one tree in the backyard, then would prance around with the branches in his mouth.
Then he ate our deck.
Then he tore out our bushes, all of them.
But oh, was he wonderful with the kids. He has participated in many dress up parties.
But that when he was a puppy. He will be 10 years old in May. That is old for a Great Dane. But he is young in body, just not in mind. He has doggy dementia (sp?) and is on medicine to help that. Along with other medicine to help him get through thunderstorms.
But for those of you who love dogs like we do, they become a part of your family. So you do what you need to and just suck up the cost.
So for now we will just love on him and give him extra pets. And enjoy the time that we have left with him. Even if his breath is super stinky. Just don't let him lick your face.
