    Vet told me to wait a year before running with my now-110 lb GSD. Might have been a little soon, but it probably accounts for the thickness of his leg bones, tendons and muscle.

    Sorry for your loss.

    He was not a dog, but he thought so. He was a gentleman killer. And evidence of his last kill lay around him.

    Some here knew him. He was friendly, feral and--filthy.

    Thanks. He was a character. I still look for him in the garage or the tall grass. And sometimes---nah, couldn't be.

    Me & Mom unfortunately had to leave our cat, Ozzie behind when we moved into our apartment. Our neighbor at the time asked if he and his twin little girls could take Oz into their home. We decided to afford him the chance to live with a loving family rather than putting him to sleep.

    I think of him often, especially first thing in the morning when he made a big deal out of greeting me, as if he has`nt seen me in years. I still also catch myself wanting to safe a piece of food of my plate for him or wanting to react, opening a door/window if I hear a cat calling.

    But just like you the thing I mist the most is simply having Oz around, rubbing against a foot/leg or catching me with his tail every time he enters/leaves the room.

    OSSU!

    I think the issue is that people over do it. Moderate exercise is good for puppies and builds strong muscles and leg bones. And lots of free play. BUT they don't need long strenuous runs. When I was breeding, I used to take my puppies on increasingly longer walks with Gramps before I would let them run with the pack. (my older dog, he kept the pups in line and helped them bind to the pack.) Also I am not a fan of running puppies on concrete. I can't prove it, but I think this does as much damage as anything.

    There are people that do train their dogs very hard. My dogs are just let loose in some fenced acreage and simply allowed to do what they want and to grow up 'naturally'.
    in humans it used to be in little league there were limits relative to young boys pitching and hurting their elbows to relative age. The issue was damage to growth areas in the elbows.
