I was going to make the same comment, although Lookai had half face black if I remember well, hence its name. I remeber Rennie posting about it.Great looking little dog. Reminds me a little bit of Lokai.
Will you have the energy to keep up with him?
Yeah, I spent over $500.00 yesterday to have our Standard Poodle tested and medicated for an E. Coli infection. We go back in two weeks, and that'll likely be another 350 ~ 500....Vets have gotten way expensive. We haven't added a new pet for fear we would not outlive it and leave it stranded, but we sure would like one.
Yeah Paul, you're right. We did get them around the same time. Izzy will be ten years old in a couple weeks. She's been pretty healthy overall. Had some hip problems at about 6 months, but grew out of them, thankfully. She's hardly slowed down at all - still runs around crazily, chases squirrels, rabbits, and deer. Great personality - loves everyone and craves attention. Typical poodle traits.@Jim DeLaney , we have lost touch on the standard poodle thing. Didn't we get our poodles around the same time and kinda keep in touch with progress reports? I did that with someone one on here. Pretty sure it was your Izzy and out Abbey. I still think the Standard poodles are a great choice for a family dog. We has really enjoyed Abbey, had hoped she would stay healthy longer, but she is really deteriorating the past year. Very sad, but she has been a great member of the family. She just took it for granted that everyone loved her. That was a given because she knew she was beautiful and we were very lucky to have her stay with us. But note, she was the one incharge!
We have started this treatment and expect it will be a lifelong practice. Very disturbing walk with Fletcher this morning. We walked along the side of a field where it was very quiet and l could hear his joints pop with each step. I could feel it placing my hand on his rump as he walked. This kind of thing just tears my heart out.Healthwise, we give her Glucosamine and Chondroitin chews to hopefully keep her joints and bones healthy. She's been getting them ever since the hip problems as a puppy. Our vet thinks they're beneficial, so we've gept giving them to her.
