Vale the old lady NEW
by: Sally

The old lady left us a while ago now. She was just tired, I think. On the day she had trouble standing, I put her in a snug basket in our living room. She stayed there, and once she gave a little yap. A bit later, one of the younger dogs went over to sniff at her. She seemed puzzled. I got up and went to check. The old lady had left the basket. Her frail little body was there, but she'd gone. We laid her to rest in a blanket beside old Ace who used to puppy sit her. It was not a bad innings for a sickly pup. That was nearly a year ago now, but I still miss her.

January 2013 NEW
by: Anonymous

Tess is approaching another anniversary. She's a bit older and a bit greyer but still enjoying life.

Happy to Hear NEW
by: Anonymous

Happy to hear of another older JRT whose medical problems are managed so he can enjoy life. It's a cold morning (first day of winter) and Tess hasn't emerged from her bed yet. She has a kind of hutch with a white quilt in it, and she "goes to ground" so she's snug and invisible.

My old dog NEW
by: Deborah H

I too have a 17-year-old JRT. He started out in life very ill; ciliac disease we did not know about; in pain and biting and growling at everyone in sight but his family. Our wonderful vet caught it. He also has allergies, hypoglycemia, and skin issues. He was from a very reputable breeder, not a backyard breeder. Thanks to our vet we have kept him healthy by watching closely what he eats, keeping Caro syrup for his hypo nearby and loving him lots. He is the greatest dog and very devoted. He licks my feet when he is being loving and still plays like a puppy with my young mini schnauzer. Wonderful old man.
