Merlin....

Our gorgeous dog Merlin is not very good at the moment, he has been having difficulty with his back legs for the last month. When I arrived home yesterday he was particularly bad and had partly collasped. We will be keeping a close eye on him for the next few days, but things are not looking good for him. He is 10 years old and has had a great life, I just hope this is not the end.

Oh Sue he is beautiful. I recently lost one of my cats so will keep my fingers crossed that he is OK. My hubby would love Merlin. Hopefully he is just feeling a bit under the weather and will pick up in a few days. Sending you big (((hugs))).

Oh Sue - he is gorgeous. I do hope he is OK. Arthritis got the better of Butch in the end, but there is lots they can do, and he had been bad for years.
Sending you huge (((((hugs))))) and hoping he will pick up in the next few days.
Hugs

I am so sorry Merlin isn't well! I am sure the tablets will help and he will be great!

Aw sorry to hear of his back legs. He is so gorgeous. My Jude has had problems with her back knees from when she was a pup ( she's 9 now) She twisted them running and landing in a rabbit burrow.
