    I'm very sorry to HH. Hopefully your sadness ebbs soon allowing you to reflect on him with smiles and knowing you gave him a great life.

    Sorry for your loss HH. AJ lived a very long happy life because you were so kind to take him in your home, let him live a very great long life, and AJ knew that. That is why he lived so long.

    Condolences to you sir. RIP AJ :angel:

    Sorry to hear, HH. It's looking like my sweet girl Marley is not long for the world, either. She's 15 (border collie mix) and getting up stairs is starting to become a real issue.

    Sorry again, HH.

    that’s a long life for a for a dog, especially one that size.
    I would say he hung around that long because the second part of his life was so much better than the first.

    Your a good man Hollowhead, you gave that nice dog a enjoyable life after what seemed to be a life of abuse. My condolences.

    What a wonderful thing. You ensured the last half of his life was what his entire life should have been. I’m sure it took awhile for him to learn he could trust you.
    A dog we had was just locked in basement. (We assume) zero cringe reflex when hand raised. Even that took a long time before he went into basement, trusting he wouldn’t be locked down there.

    18 years is a long time for a dog, bet it was the love and finally a true home you provided that made him go this long. Dogs have a unique ability to pay things forward and this may have been his way to you. God Bless....................
