    I have a cold!

    Grave stone

    Not sure if this is acceptable, so please delete if it isn't. I am arranging Mike's grave stone and wanted some help/ideas as what to put on it. Obviously treasure memories of.....born...died. But what to put on after that. Don't want to put Father, husband etc. He liked the hymn/song...

    Opinions on changing Rourke from Lamb and Rice Kibble to a salmon one

    Rourke has spent most of his life on Arden Grange Lamb and Rice kibble which suits him well. However, as some of you will know, Rourke has been diagnosed with arthritis in both shoulders and has been lame for at least a year and NSAIDs cause him to be sick, so he cannot take them. I bought a...

    Rourke has arthritis :-(

    Rourke has been lame for a year, sometimes imperceptibly and sometimes more pronounced. He has been seen by a vet three times since then and non of them could work out which foreleg he was lame on. So I decided to have him x-rayed, the vet I saw this morning could see he was lame but...

    My Drift

    A year ago my beloved Drift was put to sleep, he was only just 11 years old. He was put to sleep in my living room with his pheasant dummy in his mouth and me beside him. Feeling very upset.

    I have had to miss many posts as the forum is very slow at the moment (last three days) and unfortunately I don't have the time to wait for ages, so frustrating. :cry:

    Cold Coats.

    Does anyone have experience or thoughts on whether 'Cold Coats for dogs' are helpful in the hot weather, or whether they are a gimmick?
