May 2010 Update
Was reading through the diary entries and saw that in 2006 I thought Patches was done for! Well he is still here and in about the same shape as in 2006. He has been eating a product called "happy hips" which has glucosamine and chondroitin in it and he has much less pain when he walks and gets around pretty well. He goes on an on leash walk for about half a mile every morning with blind Brandy while Sasha and Alli run loose along with us. I took Patches recently for his three year rabies shot and had to lift him into the car (thank goodness he only weighs 65 pounds now) - it was a struggle but we made it and he was very good while waiting in line for the shot. Didn't have to have his muzzle on until the vet actually took him. Looks like he may be with us for awhile yet! Patches has three places that are his - he has a pillow on top of my back door deck where he can look out over quite a large area and it is his favorite place unless the sun gets too hot. Then he has a pillow underneath a table on the patio which is in full shade. He also has a shaded spot with pillows right by the back gate so he can look out and watchdog the whole place which he considers his very own job!
