My bad. Been real quiet on the Dog Woods blog front. The renovation has taken over and consumed our daily lives. Not only are the humans feeling displaced, the dogs too. With all the tradesmen trooping in and out of Dog Woods, hacking and banging away ... am somewhat relieved that the pack have graciously grown to accept the daily disturbances as part of their day time routine and stay out of harm's way by snoozing.
Renovation: works in progress
They only just about come back to 'life' once the workmen are done for the day i.e. by five in the evening. I reckon it's more to do with it being dinner time than anything else ... having said that, it's interesting how accurate pooches are in keeping time. I honestly wonder how they do it. It's like they have an internal sun-dial or pooch time ...
Am a bit worried about Joe (the Rottie). He being the oldest of the pack is beginning to limp. I wonder if it's onset of early dog arthritis? Or hip dysplasia? Must get the good Vet to come by and give him a once over. Other than his limp, he doesn't seem to be in pain. I've checked at least twice a day. He's his usual active self. Eats and always game for a game of fetch.
Joe and his ardent Furkid 'admirer' Tubby Jr.
Why do dogs age so much faster than humans? There's no questioning facts of life even if you wished it were otherwise ... Must do what I can to maintain their health and prolong Dog Woods Pack lifespan. As much as they drive me up the wall sometimes, they are my Furkids. I don't know what I'd do without them.
