Caleb, Cyan, and Millie were born Sept 16, 2005. Crumpet was born in May 2003.
Crumpet is a curly haired mixed breed border collie/ terrier with a weak hind end. She was actually a star in a Dr. Dolittle movie. She wants to try and play like crazy , but her back legs are shakey. Vet has X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. She is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. She can be a little vocal when goofing around and has a high pitched bark so not good for apartments etc. Crumpet has very high prey drive and cannot be around small creatures, cats, etc.
Moose is ADOPTED.
Lastly, we have 3 siblings (Caleb- black and white, Millie- brown black and white, and Cyan- brown black and white with a blue eye).
Caleb has been X-rayed and diagnosed Lumbosacral Stenosis / Cauda Equina, which can stay the same or progress as a dog ages. It has a lot of different symptoms and shows different depending on the dog. He is on Metacam/Meloxicam for pain and inflammation relief, and of course supplements like glucosamine etc. He shows his age both in looks and gait etc.
Millie and Cyan hide their age well. Their bloodwork indicted possible early kidney disease, which could be genetic, but other than that they are pretty healthy. Millie and Cyan are quite bonded. Cyan is starting to show some stiffness in his back end.
This group of seniors were originally supposed to be 6 dogs boarding for 3 months. Instead they have been abandoned with me going on 2 years this summer. 2 are adopted but 4 are left looking for homes. Last year they cost me approx $10,000 to get all vetting up to date - they were in rough shape with abscessed teeth, tumors, and many other issues. They are due for yearly X-rays and senior bloodwork again..
