    Keeping an eagle eye on his reactions after walks and adjusting your exercise regime is all you can do for now. It IS a fine balancing act.
    I am sure cuddles were forthcoming... absolutely NO hard feelings from Gavin... he so appreciates the time he spends with you...
    on walks or cuddling!

    I bet he really enjoyed the time out with you though! Extra cuddles is always a good thing!

    Well, no extra cuddles. But Gavin was perky and raring to go this morning. Wanted his breakfast ASAP and ate it all down. He has been a slower eater the past 6 months or so, sometimes not finishing his breakfast until I got home after work. He always eventually eats everything, but I am not sure if it is him not being hungry or not liking all the supplements I have been adding (he is not a fan of powdered supplements like vibrant pets, and sometimes eats around them, then sometimes eats them fine). 2 years ago, he ate everything as quickly as possible.

    I am so glad Gavin got to see and do so much while he could :) And we still do the beach, so he's a lucky little guy.

    Beautiful pictures Cindy! I'm sure Gavin was happy just to be with you, although he's been a VERY lucky dog with the exciting times you've had together!

    A lot of people haven't been to the Grand Canyon twice!
    That was our only Christmas/Gavin's birthday together :) I always like having him with me on road trips, otherwise I don't want to go! And he is such a great traveler (although I am pretty sure he thought the trip to AZ was only going to be a few hours.. hee hee). It is a bit more logistically challenging now (Big Sur was a prime example, things didn't always go the way I thought they would), so it was great we took advantage of his health while we had it for all our other trips.

    Well, now I'm jealous of Gavin;)...I've haven't even been to the Grand Canyon once!
    He's one lucky dog!

    Well, Gavin has never been to Canada! I am sure he would love the cooler weather up north :)
