We have had dogs for 50 years. Our last black lab died a year ago. We decided not to have another one because neither of us are able to walk a dog very far now, and it that wouldn't be right for the dog.
The house is very very strange without a dog around.

There is an elderly lady in the village who minds other peoples dogs when the owners go away on holiday, or for the weekend. Sometimes just for the day if they have to go somewhere and can't take the dog - funeral, wedding etc.
Not everyone likes to put their dogs in kennels, we never did.
This lady always seems to be looking after someones dog, so there must be a need for this service.

We now have just the one black Lab who's 12 3/4, having lost our other six months ago a few days short of his 14th birthday.
They both love(d) the car (in a cage) and would be so quiet and contented that on at least one occasion we forgot they were there when we parked until the alarm went off as we walked away.
They both had their teeth cleaned every night from a puppy and that is a great help to good health, also a source of amusement when we are caravanning and we take them over to the tap to have them done.
