Over the last couple of weeks Arnie split open all up one side, they ran some tests and confirmed nothing cancerous, this was tested mainly because the last few years he had slowly been getting lumps over him.
The split was open for about a week and all of the tissue and inside of him started to force out. The vets eventually decided to stitch him up and didn't realise how serious it was. He kept leaking from his large wound. Things started to look up, then took a turn for the worst over the last week, he didn't want to move and his temperature should have been 38, they said that 48 was worrying when they took it before. But the last couple of days it was up to 105 until eventually this morning it split right open again and Arnie left us.
We got to see him, he looked so peaceful, he was still warm, he just looked like Arnie sleeping.
Everybody around here knew Arnie and loved him, friendly dog who used to open the door for people and even let in the sales men! hehe.
He can rest in peace now and play with all of the other pups and dogs that are also missed.
Soon to be your Birthday Arnie, enjoy it with all your new friends up there, don't have too much fun without me! xxx

Today has been a very hot day, sun is shining, birds were singing, I heard the other dogs barking and children screaming whilst playing in the pool!
Whilst I was dreaming of the ice cold water of a river or maybe their pool, I heard the front door open, I leapt up off from my bed to make a run for it... Yes I get walked! Yes it is hot! but I want to go and explore! I can't get told off this time for it, because I didn't open the door and let myself out, I just simply saw an opportunity I had to take!
Sniffing around the neighbourhood, I hear a scream from my owners, is that me they are calling? I turn back to see my owner following me...No! It is too hot for games, I think to myself, or maybe she is coming for a walk with me...I'll just carry on and pretend I didn't hear her.
Later on after being led back into the house...I hear...Daddy's home! Oh yes daddy! He might have something for me...I just have to see what treats he has instore for me today, even if I do have to do a few tricks first...nothing...oh...hmm...sniffs...nope nothing for me just a hug and a rub...
Following my daddy into the garden while he smokes his cigarette, I lay beneath his feet, my other owners come and join us...we all sat and enjoyed the hot searing sun together...Sorry daddy, it was hot, I didn't mean to drool onto your shoe!
Wooof! Pant Pant!

I have been out in the snow the last couple of days playing with my younger owners, I tried to catch the snowball but it vanished when I went to catch it. I haven't been for walkies in awhile because of the freezing weather, I don't want to slip on the ice, because of my legs because of what I have been through in the past. But lastnight I got a treat and went walkies, as we were taking our stroll in the cold dark snow I saw someone appear from the distance! It was my owner dad! I had been waiting at the window for him alnight and here he was! I'm off for a nap now.
