Oh drawk, I am so excited for you! You don't need to justify buying another Keesie, we all know how much of an animal lover you are and that you have rescued before. It's not unusual to fall in love with a certain breed, if I ever get another dog again it will be a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Can't wait to see pics of your little ball of fluff! :wub:

Thank you, and thanks for understanding :)

Yep, I got a new digital camera and I'm ready to take a bunch of videos of my puppy girl.

My Augie the Boggie Doggy is having some old-man incontinence issues. Vet has him all checked out.  

 At this time, no, we are not doing neurosurgery and NO I am not going to take my dog to an acupuncturist.  The vet is doing all he can with arthritis mitigation.  We are doing hot baths as often as he can stand it.  The dog diapers are not smart enough for him.  He is still doing wag-tail and eat food and enjoy sunshine.  We have part of our house blocked off for him so I can work / sleep more than 2 hours at a time.  The mess is destroying my sanity.  Pee pads are happening, but he is a BIG DOG.  Anyone got advice about dealing with this old-man dog stuff?  This is my dog.  MY VET AND I ARE ALREADY DOING ALL WE CAN SO WE ARE NOT HERE FOR MEDICAL ADVICE.  I'd like some coping skills from my pals who have done this. 

I'm not ready to let Augie go and this stubborn bastard is still trying to get on the sofa. (Where he immediately poos, 'cause he's classy like that).

Lily Valley, :grouphug: 

Thinking of you and Augie and sending positive vibes.

Don't know how much advice I can offer. Maybe a large crate or pen to confine him and his mess for a few hours?

I dealt with Winter being a very anxious puppy that would have diarrhea all night so bad she'd bleed, when I got her a large crate it was like magic for her, at bedtime I'd open the door and she'd happily go in on her own, be content all night and at around 5 or 6am I'd start to stir and she'd hear me and begin to whine. I'd take her outside to do her business, but she was always a good girl in her crate all night.

It'd be different for a senior dog with incontinence issues of course, but maybe keeping the mess localized to one area would help.

Best of luck.

Caught my Boxer in a pretty badass pose due to the lighting in my living room near the patio:

Also, moved the couch to block the living room so the girlfriend and I could eat dinner without the dogs getting involved, but the Shepherd found another way through:

They are adorable!

 

So it's recently come to my attention of the rescue of many Keeshonden from a New York puppy mill.

The Keeshond is my most beloved breed and not only that, but these dogs are now in Maryland, the state where I live.

I'm sending both an application for fostering and adoption with a detailed letter of who I am and the lifestyle a dog can expect living with me.

Getting a health screened puppy from the reputable puppy breeder that's not a puppy mill is still on the table for me, but we'll see, right now this seems something I just can not ignore.

Both great pictures. I especially like the shepherd, those dogs are the best. :D
