I feel remarkably well!! I’ve even got up and put my Pre-PMR running clothes on to walk the dogs!! I won’t overdo it, only walking, and I expect to be wiped out in a few hrs, but it’s so lovely to have a reminder of the me I used to be. This is the first time I’ve felt hopeful since this struck me. Perhaps I need a full days rest regularly so that I can feel like this the next day

Lovely dog, so good for you too, I am fully walking mine now which is doing me good, without them I don't think I'd be as 'well' as I am. x

I agree with you...without dogs we may not be as well. I am struggling with putting Joey to sleep. She’s 13 1/2, blind, arthritic, deaf, gets me up at 1 and 3 to go out and eat. She cries and I’m afraid she’ll disturb the neighbors. I haven’t been to my apartment in NY in weeks because I hate to get dressed, go on the elevator and go out on the street at those hours. My door man watches me when he’s in the mood. I just can’t put her down! I’m worried that sleep deprivation isn’t good for PMR.

Suggestions?

We’re hanging out. Took her for a walk in her doggy carriage! She is so happy and feels secure. Called the vet who thinks she has days and nights mixed up which may be from blindness. Poor baby is confused. I’m taking her to NY Sunday so I better pay the doorman to watch us at 1 am and 3 am!

This is the worst part of owning a pet, you want them to live forever but not possible. My last dog. Lucy, lived to 17 and had the same symptoms as Joey, plus a heart problem and seemed to have dementia, eventually I asked the vet to call and put her to sleep, kinder she didn't have the stress of the vets waiting room. I still wonder if I could have let her live longer but common sense kicks in, more frightening for her if she had a seizure or heart attack.

I got a puppy about 6 months later, took up dog agility, very addictive so got 10 month old Lakeland terrier from rehoming centre to add to my team. Now I feel a complete fool, fancy getting young dogs in my seventies, never occurred to me that they could outlive me or that I could get so ill.

You will do right by Joey I'm sure, I'd ask the vet about your dilemma, my heart goes out to you.

Thanks so much for your compassionate response. I’m getting closer to letting her go but I’m not there yet. Watching my mother decline just makes me hold Joey a little tighter!

I can’t believe you got a puppy! What a courageous move! I’m sure your team brings endless joy. How many are there? Post pics please.

I do not have a dog but l love looking after my sons dogs,they are everything that has been said in the previous posts.l am tempted to get one myself as l know they are wonderful companions but l know l would spoil it and love it far too much.

Ah grant ,go on spoil yourself 😁

I so agree with Monkeymate - Find yourself a good dog Grants. Teddy has been such a very good friend to me while I have been fighting GCA - and the beastly preds - these many months. Kind of unbelievably good. A good dog knows when you are not well - and behaves accordingly - Companionship, tenderness, cuddles and sympathy. What else could you want? Magic - isn't it?

So - You need a dog.

What about an older dog from a rehoming centre. Just be sure it has no health problems and hopefully ready trained. If it doesn't work out you could return it. In fact some let you try them for combatability for a couple of weeks.

Thanks Arthur,your Teddy sounds lovely an d l know he gives you so much comfort.l read a quote once that said ‘A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than it loves itself ‘.Bless them!

Here's another old quote for you Grants

The later you come home - the more cross your husband or wife is to see you.

But

The later you come home, the more pleased your dog is to see you.

And of course - it's true!

I would definitely go to a rehoming centre if l decided to give a dog a home.l would feel awful if l had to send it back though .

Yes Grants - Teddy was a rescue dog. I have said it before on here - It turns out that we didn't rescue him - He rescues us - every single day.

You do have to be careful, since some of them have been mistreated - poor things. Spend a bit of time with them before you take one home. Put some nice bikkies in your pocket. Walk him/her down the lane. Find a seat and have a cuddle and a chat. Don't be hurried by anyone. If you are very uncertain, maybe you haven't found the right one for you - leave it there. I'm sure there is a good one out there waiting to meet you - like Teddy.

Grants - I should have said a bit more. We did walk Teddy down the lane at the dog's home, and we did sit on an old tree stump and talk to him. But he was SO stressed-out by his rescue-centre experience that his mind was only half on us. Nevertheless, after about 20 minutes he took a biscuit - gently and thoughtfully - and then put his paws on my wife's lap and carefully licked her hand.

That was it for us. That's been it ever since.

You need a dog.
