That's me practicing bass trombone with my fan club. Papagena is the eclectus parrot (redhead, with a bib on because she's a feather picker) and Phoebe is the African grey.

Fine looking dogs, Max's eyes look real good for 15 years old.

Thanks for your interest.
He does have a slight cataract on his left eye but overall his vision is good but slightly diminished and his hearing is also somewhat diminished..but good...15 years is tremendously old for larger breed dogs. The oldest Weim I ever had prior to this was 12.

He has arthiritis in his hips and walks slowly and stiffly. I give him an aspirin twice a day when I feed him..Occasionally I give him a steroid if he seems particularly slow and tentative.


Weimaraners are the only breed I've owned since I was in my 20's..I usually have 2 at a time and have had 3 in the past. These three are numbers 7, 8 and 9.

EDIT:
and I just noticed that picture was from almost 4 years ago...but he still looks good...

I have had better results for arthritis in older dogs with Ibuprofen.
Rimadyl is the most effective stuff I've found but it is expensive.

Thanks for the link. I THINK I've used that in the past...Can't remember...I never even considered Ibuprofen. My vet told me long ago that plain aspirin was good so I just stuck with that.
I have used Metacam..a liquid NSAID for arthritis in dogs... but it gets somewhat expensive on a daily regimen.

Rymidol contains Carprofen a similar drug to Ibuprofen.

Good looking dogs...

I have two cats on an aspirin regimen. The vet told me to cut them in half (a baby aspirin) and give one half about every 3 days. While cats can take aspirin, they do NOT metabolize it at the same rate we do so no more than twice a week. One is 14, the other is 10 but both were suffering from arthritis bad. The other cats of about the same age (I have 7 cats and 3 dogs) aren't showing the signs of arthritis yet.

Bottom: Toby(4 year old cockapoo), Rocky(5 year old lab/shepherd mix)

Rocky was the one who went through the surgery during the summer. He's doing great by the way. This is the last picture taken of our Sammy.

Here's one of Max and Sammy. Max is another old boy. Adopted him in 1999 from a shelter in Tucson.

Here's our Hallmark card shot of Toby and Rocky(yes, there is trim around the door now):
