    Thanks for sharing this @Elise Morgan -well written and good food for thought
    Our 5 year old black lab, Pip, gets between 1.5 and 3 hours of walks a day but often on the same routes.And she does sleep a lot. More tricks and puzzles are good ideas. She does get a trip with other dogs three times a week, but maybe back to the dog park again. Thanks again.

    Very nice piece, @Elise Morgan. As a dog-lover whose daughters barked (literally) before they spoke, I can attest to the value of these suggestions. One needs to live closely with dogs in order to fully appreciate the high level of intelligence and learning theycan attain if properly stimulated. Aside from the loyalty and love they exhibit for their humans as well as their canine friends. Sharing this article. Cheers!

    I said this just yesterday " But really, our brains are not that different from dogs’.

    We owe them much more brain-credit that we currently give them.

    The best thing you can do is make sure you are feeding a species-appropriate diet - lots of good fats and high-quality protein may help your dog's quality of life during this last phase.

    @David B. Grinberg, Thank you! Lucky is running free in the beautiful green, flower filled fields (with his gal pal) awaiting your reunion. Your story reminds me of two of my Labs (both RIP). For a short span, they both would escape the property for adventuring. Once, while working from home, I looked out my front window to see both of them happily walking towards the front fence from the house. I just watched, hoping that I would see how they were escaping. What I saw amazed me. The female, Cody, was leading the way, with her ever faithful compantion, Buddy, close behind. Cody walked over to an area, stopped, turned her head to look at Buddy. She stayed in place as Buddy walked around her and started digging at the spot designated by her. He dug and dug and dug until the hole was large enough. Buddy stepped back giving Cody room. She started crawling through the hole that he dug for her. When she made her way out, she waited for him to come through. Then off they went, but they didn't get far. I ran outside to get their happy butts back in. It was hilarious and quite eye opening.

    What a wonderful piece of storytelling, Barbara, especially for dog lovers like me. I had a Golden Retriever named Lucky when I was a kid. He had such a good nature and was so lovable. That is, excluding the times he would run away. Lucky was a big dog and could rest his paws on my shoulders when he stood of his hind legs (I wasn't yet a teenager at that time). Lucky weighed about 80 pounds. He was also every strategic and sneaky about escaping (or busting out, as we called it).
    Lucky would lie on the floor in the foyer all quiet and unsuspecting. Then when someone came to the house he would time the exact moment before the screen door closed to spring forward and bust out in one fell swoop like a burst of lightening. We think he had a girlfriend in the neighborhood.
    And while we were always worried about Lucky when he was gone for hours and couldn't find him, Lucky would always return home safely (thank goodness). May Lucky rest in peace up in canine heaven; I miss you, pal!
    Thanks for the memories, Barbara, and keep buzzing!

    Gorgeous George! Thanks for this buzz!

    I've been a crazy dog lady my entire adult life. As I get older, the crazier I get...when it comes to living with them. They are my family. Once, I had a german shepherd bitch who was the hardest puppy I ever had. Hard, meaning I felt that she was too much dog for me. I almost re-homed her because I felt I was not doing right by her. My trainer (not hers, mine)....told me that she wasn't too much dog for me and I just needed to realize that she was an independent thinker, willful, ridiculously intelligent and she knew she held the upper hand when it came to me. :-) My trainer had to teach me how to be the "top dog" to show her that she wasn't. This had to be done positively and I learned how.

    We did come to terms and she agreed to disagree about who was the top dog. But, we loved each other and although she was a tough young dog, she turned out to be a loving, loyal adult. I miss her dearly.

    @Joyce 🐝 Bowen Brand Ambassador @ beBee I have been a dog owner for only 22 years. Because hubby has allergies, we can only have purebred, non-allergenic dogs. Bichons are our preferred choice. I remember being interviewed by the breeder for our first dog to determine if we were suitable parents. I thought it was odd but eventually came to understand completely the why. I guess we were suitable because we eventually become foster parents to her champion male stud. Your loving testament to the world of dogs is beautiful and oh so truthful. It is clear you were one of the best kinds of breeders. My heart aches for the holes you still have. I am so glad the memories of your fur babies are still vivid and thank you for your gift of so poignantly sharing with us.
