Haven't been on lately, but our ol' guy was doing fine up until a few years ago when his DM (Canine Degenerative Myelopathy) got the best of him. He lost a bunch of his freedoms, but he still ruled the house (he thought) protecting me from a house full of Boerboels which is reall quite brave if you're familiar with the breed.
We took him everywhere over the years, and we made a short goodbye video here:
What a guy...his strong spirit shines through watching the video. I especially enjoyed watching the little boy sledding...I thought no way is he going to allow him to travel down that hill alone...he was right there running beside him!
