Black Dog Sunday!

Our Black Dog has a big week ahead of him, after seemingly finally recovering from his strained hind leg muscles (iliopsoas) by resting for a couple of weeks.

He's now back to running, and that makes him a super happy dog!

One day recently, I had him to myself for a bike ride so I had the chance to take some photos of him running on Hug Hill! I love his crazy ears.
Later this week, unfortunately, he has to have dental surgery. He has a crack in a molar, and the vet needs to see it under anaesthesia and then decide whether to extract it. At the same time, he's having an abdominal ultrasound to rule out cancer. He had some odd bloodwork values that made our vet want to take a look inside him. He is 10 years old, after all, so we thought the tests were a good idea.

Last night was our big turkey dinner with the family at our house, and after we waved goodbye to them....

We all collapsed into sleepy heaps.

The Duo were certainly the cutest sleepy ones in the house, although Shyla has trouble keeping her eyes closed when she hears the shutter click. That's no problem for her big brother!
Happy Black Dog Sunday. Let's hope that all the Black Dogs out there have a great week, including R!

  1. Oh my gosh, those ears! They are about as expressive as his eyes! I hope the surgery goes well and recovery is easy. Ruby will need to have a dental early in 2018.

  7. I hope all the black dogs get adopted, they run specials on black dogs at our county animal control. they do half price sales because it seems people don't want black dogs. that fact amazes me. I love black dogs.

  12. So happy R is back to running. It is difficult to keep them quiet and resting. Love Shyla using her brother's paw as a pillow.

  17. Good luck with your ultrasound, R, and I hope the dental work goes well. Piper had dental surgery a while back and she has been eating canned food 99% of the time ever since. The vet said there was no reason why, a few days after the surgery, she couldn't go back to one meal dry and one meal canned every day. But Piper convinced me otherwise, Also, I am a sap.
