Have you had Grampa the whole 17 years? Do the twins take care of the old guy, or is it the other way around?

He looks a lot like my boss' dog. Doesn't look like he's 17! We had a dog that lived to be 19, but to be honest, the last few years she wasn't much of a dog. Slept all the time, and couldn't hold anything in. He looks great!

Acually he's doing pretty good for his old age. He eats good no problems there he gets alittle stiff at times when its raining alot, But we have something we give him for that. He is still very active too. He does have dry skin sometimes but that too is minor I switched his main diet food and that too care of that. the only grey is a little around the muzzle, I acually let him kinda let him eat what he wants now he earned it. But he isn't even grumpy at this age he is very tolerant still of everything its really amazing for his age.
We almost lost him when his buddy the other rotties we had paased on but then we got the pups and he came right back cause he had a job again. He needs dogs or pups around him always has. He has to have something to care for or he just lays there.

That's so sweet, almost like he needs something to live for. Men don't do too well when they lose their jobs, huh? Tough on the psychology. I know the toughest time in my marraige came when my husband lost his job. He got anothr right away, but was waht you would call "under-employed". Man, was he grouchy until that changed.
so what did you call the dog when he was like 4? He must not've been called Grandpa then.
