The Golden Retriever And German Shepherd At 12 and 10 Years Old

I thought I would provide a little update on my dogs as they have been featured throughout my blog for a number of years. Maggie, the Golden Retriever, turned 12 years old on January 10, 2014.  From what I have read, the average age of a Golden Retriever is around 10-11 years old, so I’m […]

Maggie, Golden Retriever Age 11

This post isn’t about butterflies nor wildlife, but I couldn’t resist posting a few new photos of Maggie, my 11 year old Golden Retriever. The thing about Golden Retrievers is that they seem to prematurely age in their facial hair.  Maggie has been no different.  When she was younger she was a much darker color, […]

My Poor Old Golden Retriever Maggie

Poor Maggie.  She’s my 10 year old Golden Retriever.  The other day she was chewing on a bone and cracked one of her canines in half.  I could tell just from looking at it that she would probably need to have it removed. Sure enough, I took her into the vet and he said the […]

First a few distance shots.  Here’s Sascha the German Shepherd trying out her new Ruffwear Doggie […]

She and Chloe get along great, as well as her and the dogs.  In fact, her favorite playmate (other than Chloe) seems to be Sascha, my German Shepherd. We also got her a new toy today.  I think […]

Golden Retriever Forced To Wear T-Shirt

I don’t think Maggie was feeling too well tonight.  Her stitches seemed to be bothering her.  When she was laying on the couch I noticed that she was bleeding around her stitches on her front shoulder. She didn’t actually tear the stitches, but she did appear to scratch herself up pretty good.  I cleaned her […]

Maggie Surgery Pictures

The vet called late last night to tell me how the surgery on Maggie went.  Basically the one place on her back was definitely just a fatty deposit and no big deal (other than the big incision she has).  The other “thing” on her shoulder blade was more of a concern.  He couldn’t determine what […]
