Thanks all, he's getting on a bit but at 10 years old he's in amazing health and I think he looks great. A few minutes after these photos he had to have his nails clipped, and then he was most grumpy and he went to bed with his cat for the afternoon. Hah! Sorry buddy.
Rubydoo- he walked 10k a few weeks ago with my daughter on a Sunday, and regularly does a 5k walk with me/and sometimes after that he traips up 6 flights of stairs( depends on the lift) Although now the heat is climbing and he won't be so active, I know I am biased, but for a senior hound I think he is just amazing. We played plastic bottle rugby for nearly an hour tonight and of course he 'won'.
