I’ve started a new work…Rio. He is a 12 year old German Shepherd that comes here to board when his folks are away. At his age he does not travel very well any more. He is quite healthy and active even though he has very sore arthritic hips. He gets prednisone for that three times a week which gives him a better quality of life. When he’s here he makes the rounds of the entire 1 acre and enjoys the company of ours dogs. He never ceases to amaze me when he lopes across the yard somewhat behind our standard poodles chasing squirrels. He is very thin but that is probably better for his hips. At one point he had such allergies that he lost almost all of his hair but it has come back.
