Welcome to ES Christine hope you enjoy the site - it becomes addictive!! We moved from Banstead to Pluckley a few years ago and have friends in Leatherhead - Headley used to be the place to go is it still good dog walking country?

Riley is just 2 and he has always been ok with bikes until he reached the age of 2. Someone said dogs go through terrible two's like kids. oops just realised you may not have read my thing about Rileys bike chasing.  As you have males perhaps you could give me tips. Thanks for accepting my friend request.

Hi Christine, yes my Finlay is ill, he was only given 6weeks in december he has a bone tumor in his leg, but apart from having a ear infection at moment( trying to get drops in ear is fun) he's keeping well, he's no different then he always is just cant have such long walks, it's heart breaking knowing he's ill and i might not have him for long he was only 2 in december

Thanks Christine, Finlay has had tests, x-rays, bone biopsy, the first vet wanted to amputate straight away in december, but said it wouldn't save him just give him a bit longer, i wasn't too keen on that as biopsy was inconclusive other vet said hang on as he wanted to get second opinion from a specilist, and Finlay seems to be confusing the vets as not acting like he's ill, they advised after looking at everything to leave him at the moment as he having a good quality of life and reconsider his treatment later on, he's just on some medication, so fingers and paws crossed he will keep well, he is such a sweetheart (",)

Hi Christine, your right they go straight to our hearts, you will soon get experince as you have three boys, it is hard when he looks so well you just wonder whats to come,vet said a second biopsy a bit later would more then likely of shown a positive result but taking more bone could of caused a fracture that wouldn't heal and they would have to amputate, i think i have choosen the right course for Finlay he's still happy and enjoying everything like normal, i had never heard of your boys illness till i joined here seems a few dogs have same thing, you just want them to be well, i was lucky with my other boys no major illness, except Paddy did bloat at 12 1/2 it was sudden after i feed him a different food i was at home took him straight to vet, she said because of his age he wouldn't survive the night the operation or the anaesthetic and wanted to put him down i said no try the op he pulled through and he was with us for another year, sorry i seem to have gone on a bit, Ellen (",)

Hi Christine, yes i think we are both in the same boat lets hope both boys stay well for a long time, no i've never shown my boys, always thought i would of liked to, lots of people said i should of with my first dog but i dont drive so was never practical, a ES member traced Muffins pedigree for me as he was never registered i was pleased to see he had some very good dogs from the 70's in his pedigree as even i'd heard of them, but being on this site makes me think it would be nice, i'm going to see if any local shows and just go and have a look, i would enjoy that, i did see the photos of your dog at crufts on the floor Finlay would be just like that, in our house that pose is called chicken chest every time he does it he expects to be fussed, to me all my boys have been beautiful i've loved them all but there is something special about Finlay, my daughters are grown up so most of the time it's just Finlay and me, i think we could both talk for England or should i say type for England (",)
