Bio:
Brutus loves people! he has a six year old boy he adores. Brutus weighs 92 lbs. and has a 24" neck, he is a velcro dog, if he is hanging out with me he has to be leaning on me, have his paw on my foot, or his head on my lap at all times. ;-) Brutus is my soulmate, he adores me and i adore him. definatley a mamma's boy! he loves to swim, he could swim around in circles all day if we let him. brutus was a rebound dog...but it was the best decision we made. i had lost my sharpei to renal failure and i was not looking to replace him, friends insisted that get another dog to fill the void. after a few months i was practically forced to go see a litter of puppies that were a friend of a friends friend (an accidental litter)...., i fell im love with bru right away, he was the biggest goofiest of all his littermates. he grew up to be gorgeous and he is extremely smart. brutus has (so far benign) melenoma, he has moles removed about every 6 mos. so far he has had 4 surgeries. nothing slows him down, he is a big love bug! brutus thinks he is as big as his head.

Forums Motto:
Whatcha eatin'?!?

I was diagnosed with degenerative nerve damage to my rear legs. lately when I walk I tend to fall or sway and sometimes I knuckle my paws and fall down. My dad has already built me some handicap ramps so that I can get down to the yard to do my business and get back up, lately its harder and harder for me to get back and forth without some help. I now have a doggie wheelchair (cart) which helps me get around and continue to take walks with my family and Bella. My parents seem sad about it sometimes, but I'm still really happy and I know they love me and thats mostly why they are sad because I used to be so active and probably not being able to see me do the things I used do makes them think that I am depressed about it. Im just so happy that they love me soooooo much!!
I'm getting used to my cart a little more every day. Mom was really surprised that I was walking the first time I tried it, I dont usually like things that roll so she was afraid I would try and attack the tires, I know its helping me so I'm dealing with it. Soon I'll be a pro!

 

Dad rocks!

My arthritis really sucks, its tough getting old. Dad built me a handicap ramp to get up and down to the back yard. My parents totally rock! I hear mom saying how my pills are 3 dollars a day, and its pretty expensive for humans but they never miss a day, so I guess that means they love me and dont want me to be in pain. Yesterday Bella saw a critter int he yard as I was going down the ramp she knock me down and I got stuck grrrrrr! Mom had to come and lift me up and it wasnt easy for her because I'm a big guy, Bella can be such a brat sometimes.
