View Full Version : Dylan now 15

4th April 2008, 08:45 PM
I posted about Dylan before and today I met up with Dylan owner today and found out he is now 15 years old.(gotcha day was start of the year):cool:

Dylan was already a golden oldie with a heart mummer when he was adopted at 9 years old, but he still going strong and despite being deaf as a post still knows when the fridge door is open (even if hes asleep).

It really warms my heart to see a fit and healthy dog at this age...I hope I too will be posting someday on my three reaching a grand old age!

Wow! He is gorgeous! Maybe he knows when the fridge door is opening because he sees the light from it, or alternatively he may feel the vibration in the floor, depending on what you have.

He is a beautiful, beautiful boy, and really doesn't look his age.

What a cutie! My hubby says he looks wise.

5th April 2008, 08:05 AM
Wow 15 and still looking good. :)

oh it's wonderful to have an update on Dylan, he is so precious. I think he looks fantastic - and he's lost a little weight?

Rupert always knows when the fridge door is open too - he's totally deaf and even knows when he's in the other room - I'm sure they become telephathic to make up for the deafness :)

WOW!! 15?? He looks fantastic!! A belated :hppybdy: to Dylan!! :luv:

5th April 2008, 02:49 PM

Thank you, Dylan owner will be so stoked about your kind words. :)

She has not been well lately; she had to go into hospital to have an operation to have some cancer removed. She was meant to stay in hospital (including I.T.) for a week before she started chemo but came out after two days as she could not bear to be parted from Dylan. Her Doctor said he never known someone to recover so quickly especially as she is elderly.

Well how did Dylan thank her when she came home? Gave her a dirty look of ‘oh your back then’ turned and stomped of in the other direction. :lol: Seems he wasn’t getting spoiled by her son, so had to show his displeasure somehow. He’s now back to his normal ways now.

And yes Nicki he has lost weight, the ear bashing from the son, vet and I got through and he eats more healthy now. But given half a chance I know she still slips him a biscuit.;)

What a teddybear! A great old age too.

He's a great poster boy for why adopting the oldies can be so wonderful! Who wouldn't snatch him up?

Just started reading this post as I'm new.

Was thinking WOW 15 yrs old, I'm now crying!!!!

Lovely little fella.

18th October 2008, 11:10 PM
what beautiful eyes he had bless him,he only looks like a youngster.

23rd October 2008, 09:36 PM
aw poor Dylan..R.I.P. what a fine age he lived till!
Is his owner doing ok?:(

9th November 2008, 11:13 PM
I know my Dylan won't last this long but I do smile every time I see this thread. To know this boy was 15 is quite something and at least they shared the same name. Wasn't he beautiful. Have you heard from the owners since?

10th November 2008, 07:44 PM
No I haven't seen his owner or her son, I keep a look out for her but no luck so far.

We live so near but I don't know her house number, or block and haven't been able to find out. :(

8th December 2008, 04:46 AM
What a sweetheart he is !

18th February 2009, 07:30 PM
I came home from work today to find out that Dylan owner had died. :(

After Dylan went she no longer had the fight in her to over come the cancer that had come back.

Her funeral was today and her son's wreath was a large dog shaped just like Dylan.

So now Dylan and his owner are now back together over the rainbow bridge.

18th February 2009, 07:32 PM
I'm so sorry Davy. That is very sad. :(

18th February 2009, 08:05 PM
Its very sad to hear that Dylans owner has passed away too ,though they are both pain free and together.
My Aunts little dog had to be PTS and months later just after last Xmas she too passed away. She was 82 and broke her hip , they operated it was a success but she just "gave up" . Despite my visiting her daily, her little dog Polly was her soulmate 24 hours a day and she missed her so much. The companionship a little dog gives to someone living alone is priceless . Many have no-one at all and a little dog is all they have . The best medicine for the lonely ,better than any prescription.

rest in peace to both dog and owner :(
