    Oh Duncan, I hope your Dad improves soonly.

    Meanwhile, the nights are seriously drawing in now we are past the Summer Solstice.

    Thank you all for all the kind wishes for Dad

    He was weak as a kitten yesterday as a result of the weight loss and lack of food so he did not take me out much or very far when we did go out, I am hoping for more today but if the first walk is anything to go by, it will be slow going

    Family (what there is of it) is too far away but his neighbours have been so kind and supportive that dad is actually embarrassed by it all

    One side ours are 'ok'.

    The other side is a guy on his own - we're not sure if his dad has died or is in a home, sometimes he starts shouting and swearing

    He's a Liverpool supporter, not saying that's got anything to do with it though!

    I've got one like that, always screaming at the football in Indian, and then English swearing comes out. He lives with his mother, and some days it sounds like they are killing each other in there, even the dogs get worried from the noise!!

    The other one I'm not adjoined to, but is still loud with his lodgers, he loves house music and the naff 80's music! He's an absolute ****** and loves nothing more than parking his car on top of mine, using my wheelie bins, moaning about my wonky fence even though he bought the house with it there and allowing his !!!!py grapevine to overgrow my fence and ruin the shed roof!!!

    Not been to the park for ages
    Dad has started walking me again, not very fast or far but it is a start, I get too excited in the park and chase after things so I don't think he will be taking me there for a while yet

    You keep hauling him out for a bit of fresh air. Even in the rain. Gets you a sanity break from being indoors & lets the neighbours see how well he's doing, too.

    Ruby still takes me out longer walks with Poppy but it's only 4 times a day so anything I can get out of Dad is a bonus until he is well enough to get back up to speed again.

    No - a day, Poppy doesn't like to walk very far as she is getting on a bit and has sore legs but I like to get out as much as possible and Dad normally takes me 10/12 times on good days.

    Coax him into it gently, just a little walk, then maybe another later. Start with once a day & see how you persuadable he is?!

    I have had him out twice this morning already for a total of 1.5 miles, this is a lot less than I am used to but I am trying to get him moving more to build up his stamina again so that he can take me on longer walks.

    As a devout couch spud with occasional forays to the gym and treadmill, I am awed at a mile and a half. Absolutely encourage him, but gently, gently, please?!

    We did 5 walks for exactly 3 miles spread throughout the day but he was not up to it by the evening so auntie Ruby took me out at 8pm.

    It must have done some good though as he slept later than normal this morning

    Thanks Duncan for keeping us posted. Itís good to hear heís getting better slowly.

    Have you thought about a doggie treadmill?

    Sorry, thatís my sometimes wicked sense of humour.

    I am a very active pooch so a treadmill would be a good idea if it was needed for a long time but I am getting Dad out more and more each day and hoping it wont be too long before I get him up to double figures in miles/day again

    Dad tries to make up with walks for not being able to let me off the lead, we are both taking bad at the moment with shorter walks and fewer of them but soon, soon

    Plenty of other activities that can be done if Dad is not up to walking so much Skye Bear is not going out in this heat every day, she's having toys in her paddling pool, treat balls and puzzles to solve and some scentwork training

    I have all my toys and treat balls and we do play with them regularly but my favourite activity is watching what is going on in the street so I am just doing a bit more of that than usual. Dad doesn't like it so much when I get excited and start barking but I can't help myself no matter how much he gets on to me
