Here's our Peggy. The last dog we had was Sherman, the ginger English bull terrier. he lived to 17. Then we had a break from dogs for about 10 years until the kids grew up a bit, Peggy is a Schnauzer/poodle cross. My wife and kids are mildly allergic to some dogs, dogs that don't drop their fur seem to be OK.
Poppy. 13!year old cocker collie. Wife took her to the vet 2 weeks ago with a sore paw hurt when she jumped into a rock pool at the beach but it was frozen and the vet told her she had a large mass in the stomach that could burst any time and she will have to be put down. My 2 youngest cried for 2!days solid and the dog now lives permanently in her basket in front of the fire and appears to be milking it for all she is worth.
likely still be here thistime next year.
