She is going to love this!!!!! because her favorite game right now is the "chasing critters game" LOL so, she likes "chasing" things we hide too, if you'd like watch the video it's hilarious, pay attention to the first few seconds when she does the "2 legged punch" on my husbands leg... hahhahahah

Thank you all for your posts - I want to do what's best for Teddy - I know Ginger would miss him but I think he would forget us lol he just loves everyone. she is more attached to me - like at the hip - actually she is too attached. Teddy is a great dog -I just worry that I am not doing right by him. He is 7 but acts more like 1 lol - very cute like a puppy.

I posted this, hoping it'd help: "sit on the floor and play fetch (indoors) till she is tired (I throw it fast and take it from her fast and throw it again fast fast LOL - I make the ball hit a corner and go the other way, she loves it! I throw it different directions, sometimes high in the air, sometimes rubbing across the carpet like a little critter running from her, she loves that as well...

play tug-a-war with a big rope toy with nots on it sitting down on the floor - i pull the toy from right to left and she walks a few steps then I say "pull-pull" and she just pulls it from me and I stop and let her have the toy often, she walks around proud and shakes it (shaking her head) I do these 2 for as long as I can, or until she lays down (panting) like: "ok, momma Im done"... LOL"

My heart is sad to hear that, I wish so much we could all think of a way to help you with this... Is there anyone, family/friend that likes to run that could take him often...well... I'm sure you probably thought of that already... mmmmm

Good luck to you and yours.. and all the best to you with your health as well

Post some pictures of him! maybe make a thread (with the title being more descriptive of what you are going through) who knows? someone may come forward with a good idea to help or something good may come from that :-)

About 30-60 mins later when Sawyer's initial energy is gone, I can take him home. We go for hikes almost every day, but if not, I found that a treadmilll works wonders!
You can just buy a cheap one, It only took Sawyer like 2 tries before he understood, and now he loves to go on it. Then I can sit on my lazy bum and watch movies while he's running
We live in a trailer so there really isn't any room to play inside, not a lot anyway, so I found the treadmill was a great way to get him exercise. Especially in the winter when it gets around -20/30 C... I'm not going to want to go for long walks, but he really enjoys the treadmill
That's a great idea. If you say to our spoo, "Want to exercise?" He runs down to our basement and hops on the treadmill. He will stay on for 30 minutes or more. You don't have to stay with him ... we just go about our business ... and he gets off when he's had enough.

We live in the city and don't have a yard so normally, at the very minimum, we take him out for 20 minutes or so in the morning and when we get home from work. If the weather's nice, we'll take him out longer (he'll stay out for hours if you let him). We also take him for a 5 min tinkle right before bed. We try to get him to the park every couple of days, but that's more becasue he likes that, rather than for the exercise. And since he does like going outside, on days that I don't work, I'll take him out 4 or 5 times during the day for a quick 5 minute jaunt around the block. Again, not necessarily for the exercise, just becasue it's something he enjoys.

Pamela, whatever you need to do that is best for you and Teddy, I believe that it will end up in a very positive way. I just was blessed with a wonderful 6 year old female standard and she has just filled the gap that was in my life due to the loss of my mpoo that I had had since childhood.

Sometimes we have to bless others with our Poos to let these bundles of love fulfill their purpose in life. My mom had a mpoo that she gave to a friend, that literally was in time to save that person's life. Her little boy was the perfect blessing to rally his new person's spirits after an almost fatal car crash. One that took almost a year to recover from. I believe with all of my heart that without his new baby, our friend would not have survived.

I believe for the best for you and Teddy, as well as for his new person or persons, that he will bless with his love and joy of life.
