Love dogs.
This is not my dog but I don't have any pics of him when he was younger.  Looks just like him.

Our old fella is not as pretty as he used to be but to me he is as beautiful as always.  
I think he is 14.  Very old for a very big dog.  His hind legs don't work too well anymore. 
 
I remember the first time I saw him.  He was running in and out of traffic on a busy street.  He was long-legged and reddish with a big beautiful head that was a bit like a St. Bernard but leaner. There was a thin ragged broken rope leash hanging from his neck.  We figured he was 9 or 10 months old as he still had his baby teeth.  But he weighed almost 90 pounds.
  
It took me at least two hours to rescue him from the traffic.  When I finally caught him - I couldn't get him into the car.  He refused.  I called my daughter for help and with me inside pulling and her outside pushing - we managed to capture him.  And then he captured our hearts.  And for 14 years we have loved this fella tremendously.  He's 110 pounds and has lupus, a bad spine, ragged ears, drooping tail and the face that was once black is now snow white.  He is losing his hearing and the once proud guard dog is now my shadow struggling to follow me from room to room.  He is on medication for the lupus and the spine but he does not seem to be in pain. 
To enjoy and share a dog's life is rewarding and necessary for someone like me but it is unfortunately like watching life in fast-forward. 

I was just looking for a recent picture to share here but I cannot find my pictures as my son has done some organizing of all my computer pics before moving himself off this one to another computer.  He said he put them all in a file - nice and neat.  I don't do nice and neat very well[wink]

I missed this post.

I am too busy out there surviving and achieving without cash.... LOL.

Oh, how much we love our furry friends! 14 years is a lot for a big dog. What is the name of your dog, Ali?
