In fact, he often closes it so this is how he'd look - still very handsome in my opinion!
He is continuing to gain confidence in navigating inside the house. He walks with some speed and assertiveness. Even hard collisions with things do not slow him down. The only downside is that, when he runs into something, it's usually a "boom" of a collision. So, I've ordered him something called a "halo" for blind dogs - which will protect his face. You'll certainly see a photo in a future post.
On the less good side of the ledger, he had his "senior blood panel" which showed that he probably has an ulcer. We stopped his NSAID and put him on ulcer meds. We are hoping that it resolves quickly so that he doesn't have to go through a lot more diagnostics. His low hemoglobin might be a big part of why he seemed very off a couple of weeks ago.
No matter what, he is a happy dog. He and his sister are two peas in a pod.
Snow is expected tomorrow, and our Black Dog LOVES that!
Happy Black Dog Day (sorry that it's a day late!).

Awww, your pups are so precious. You take such great care of your babies. As it should be.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous day and week. Scritches to the pups. ♥
We are cheering the good news and are crossing our paws that the bad news is resolved soon. You can tell that he and Shyla share a special bond.ReplyDelete
R is a beautiful boy, and that won't ever change. I love seeing the two of them snugged up together.ReplyDelete
Usually when I sneak a peek at Piper I find she has her head in the rubbish. There's nothing in there that could hurt her - there's nothing edible in there either, but she lives in hope. Mostly she likes to find pieces of paper that can be shredded and strewn about the house.
But Piper may have a sleepover guest for a few days in late February, so maybe there'll be a cute sleeping doggos picture in her future :)
I'm smiling at each word and photo. Shyla and R on the red blanket is preciousReplyDelete
Seeing R and Shyla together like that always warms the heart!ReplyDelete
He is VERY handsome.ReplyDelete
Such a beautiful boy!!ReplyDelete
He's incredibly handsome!!!ReplyDelete
He just grabs your heart and you fall so in love with him.ReplyDelete
How wonderful that R has sweet Shyla to keep him company and share the sunshine. I'l glad to hear his pressures are down. Hope his blood panel gets back to normal very soon.ReplyDelete
R is such a brave and sweet dog. I don't think his illnesses are bothering him but I doubt he would let you know if they did. He is here to take care of you. Such a gentle and caring boy.ReplyDelete
Glad you found out what was going on so it could be treated. You can actually get into the house without the dogs knowing? That has never, ever happened here!ReplyDelete
Poor R...there's always something! But I'm so glad he is getting around better, and hope everything else gets settled too. There is no doubt he will be handsome no matter what, and those photos of him and Shyla really are heart-melting!ReplyDelete
