So I went in to AOA with the decision to not buy anything, just looking and saying hi. There's nothing I need right now for fish and so definitely not purchasing. Somehow I still left $20 poorer with an awesome smelling dog soap in my hands.

They will be happy to gear that my 16 year old allergic to virtually everything dog did not have a reaction to the soap

Elergic to virtually everything? Call Dr Harry!

Actually, I was outside earlier putting my dog to bed, yes I have to because he's old, partially blind and really deaf, we adopted him 8 months ago as he was mistreated and abandoned, noticed he's getting weaker and a little more blind, back legs are starting to give in, poor ol' bloke, Lab x Staffy, so gentle, he's had a shocking life by the look of him when we got him, he's old, but thought we'd give him some joy in life while he still has it, he came from a yard with no food for a week, no water, no bed, no shelter, dug himself a hole at the back of the yard and slept in there, he was so skinny, fleas, scars, cuts, we knew who the owner was, was feeding him on the sly when we found him and then I thought **** it, I'm going to get him, told the local dog catcher what I was going to do, she agreed and said it was OK, so I went in, got him, took him home, got him registered under my name, saw the owner, told him if he didn't hand the dog over to me in my care I'd put animal cruelty charges on him, he didn't even want the dog, so now we have him, beautiful dog, so gentle, you can tell he's had a hard life, he's very wise I think, so now he has a bed, clean water, milk, a hot chook once a week, get's washed, has his own coat when it's cold outside at night, two meals a day, lots of pats and hugs, I hope he's happy now, just wish you could ask him how he is and if he's happier though, don't think we have too much longer with him :(

My dear old grandmother used to say that you can tell a lot about a persons character by the way they treat animals.

And my own life experience has taught me she was so right.

Kudos to you mate :clap2:

Ummm, now that I said all that yesterday, I went out early this morning and he isn't too flash, wouldn't move, looks exhausted, breathing has changed, only ate a little, we have made the decision to have him put to sleep, sadly, he just doesn't look himself, so think it's best, his legs aren't very strong at the moment, can't have it done locally until Thursday, was meant to take Mum out of town for a specialist app tomorrow but I'm staying home to take care of him and she is going on her own, Thursday we take him to the vet :(

Sorry again [MENTION=3772]DeBree420[/MENTION]

Ryou can see the picture? Photobucket is doing my head in...

Nah my dog pretty much always looks like that if you get him to pose for the camera.

And screw Dr Harry, that guys an idiot. My dogs allergies are easy to handle, but there's only a couple of dog soaps that he doesn't react to

Just letting some of you know that have commented above that this morning I had Devil my adopted Lab x Staffy put to sleep, he was 13 years old, his back legs were getting weaker, having trouble going to the toilet, breathing had changed, seemed to become quite weak, also had a number of large cancers in his body, all this happened in the last 3 weeks, so I thought it was best that he go now before he started to be in an uncomfortable amount of pain, I feel terrible but I know it was best to let him go before things got a lot worse for him, I adopted him as some of you know from a shelter, his previous owner which I knew had abandoned him and abused him, when I found him in the owner's yard he was so skinny I could put my hands around his stomach, he was deaf, partially blind, covered in fleas, cuts, scars, had no food, no water, no shelter, no bed, he was very wary of me as well as I think he didn't have a trust in humans, he had dug a hole in the back yard and that's where he slept, after feeding him on the sly for a couple weeks of dog food and left over chook, I decided that enough was enough and I told the local dog catcher and pound that I was going to go and take him, she agreed and she went and got him, I then saw the owner and told him if he didn't hand the dog over to me for care that I'd press charges for animl cruelty, he didn't want the dog at all, so I took him in, had him have his needles, washed, treated for fleas, had his sores and cuts treated, got him registered, had him washed and claws cut, he was old we knew and we knew we wouldn't have long with him, but thought we'd give him a nice and comfortable ending to his life where people actually cared for him, so he got shelter, he got his own bed, massive bed, he got 2 meals a day, clean water, his own coat for when it was cold at night, he got warm wheatbix sometimes, a hot roast chook once a week, milk now and then, it took him about a month to get used to us, but only us, he wouldn't let anyone in the yard and would only come to us, he was a very, very gentle Lab x Staffy, beautiful dog, very mellow, relaxed, gentle, you could tell he had a hard life so we wanted to give him some hope I guess.

Anyway, Devil is now in Heaven, not that I believe in Heaven, but I like to think he's better off and no longer in pain or stress, poor ol' bugger, wish we had met him sooner and had longer with him.
