Aw,"Fudge" MD! You have had a lot of "hard-luck" with your beags! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif I pray that they will recover & adopt the "stong constitution" that beags are famous for! "Most adoped beags beat the odd's" & live a normal/expected life...As Pop & I have experience with! But with Goober being my first beag as a pup & raised in an area with very few canine diseases... Goober might give the current record holder a good run for a non newtered male beag! Snapper & Duke were adopted from the pound/shelter & spent 13 yrs with us...but, Rufus & Nibbler were rescued from "problem-homes" when they were 1 yr old...So, We shall have to see how this plays out!
Even though Rufus is less than half Goobers "elder weight" & size, and 5 yrs younger...he has had more "elder dog problems" than Goober so far! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/eek.gif
