   Ole buzzard  Yotty and I lost our eldest Pug, Wilhelmina, on Thursday, 11/13/14. She would have been nine years old in January. She had started walking oddly back in April, and she had been diagnosed with three herniated disks in her neck. Owing to Pug physiology, corrective surgery would have been extremely high risk. We opted to not have surgery. She eventually lost the ability to walk at all, and we kept her as comfortable as possible. She lost all visual reflexes and interest in eating on Tuesday, 11/11. We took her to the vet to be euthanized, but she passed naturally before they could perform the procedure.

   Balogreene  Yottie and Buzz, I so wish one of my fur friends would have gone naturally, even at the vet's. She was a beautiful dog, and apparently, from your posts the matriarch of the family. There is not much comfort, I know. But, she is in Heaven, waiting for you and her other friends. C.S. Lewis maintained if God took people, surely pets get a free pass to heaven. My heart goes out to your hearts.

   Balogreene  Ukiko would so much prefer this to what we call spa day. A bath, a cut, cologne, nails trimmed.

   Balogreene  I've owned many dogs, loved my Greyhounds, shepherds, maltese, etc. There is no better dog than a Border Collie. They are beautiful, smart, and loving.

   WAN2  Did not mean to denigrate--only to point out that this is not a dog for couch potatoes.

   Ole buzzard  WAN2, you are absolutely correct. My dad had a customer years ago that bred and trained border collies. Even when they were just in their kennels, they were constantly on the move.

She used sheep as training aids, but had to replace them every year because they would learn the dogs' moves and start anticipating them.

   Balogreene  Just have to give them a job, and a yard. Our first love ball, and my dad with great patience would plant a flower, throw the ball, plant a flower. . .
