Poor Buster .

You all have seen Buster in many of my pictures, 2 weeks ago he had a fall and we took him to the vets. He has being diagnosed with Canine hip displasia. He will never recover fully from this condition but with medication for life he will at least will enjoy his time with us. He can have a double hip replacement but that's very very expensive and he at the moment still has a good standard of life.

    a dynamic one ... and he's smiling it seems :-)

    wish him and all of you to stay together as long as ... (we had a sausage dog, a strong one, who lived more than 17 years, first with my parents later with us ..)

    cheers from Bernd

    Buster is a beautiful dog, a full family member and thus anything that ails him makes the family suffer as well...

    So it is great to know that his suffering can be alleviated with the medication.

    As for the photo, I agree with Maurice, it is a fabulous portrait, great colour scheme, wonderful light and great reflection in the wet sand.

    Congratulations for you and a friendly pat for Buster,

    Hope it is a little better with your buddy Buster, a sad story..such a pity...give him a hug from me!!! Thanks for your message, I do hope that you soon do not have to blow the cobwebs off your camera and that the work is getting in to normal ;-)

    Sad news indeed, but it looks like he is still able to have a little fun in his life.

    Great shot, from my own experiences with my dogs, I can tell you, you're doing the right thing for Buster.

    great kinship.

    Oh bless him, it sounds like he (and you) have been through the mill. But he has a very loving owner who is looking after him so well and he can enjoy many more days walking on the beach with the help of his medication. This is such a great picture of Buster enjoying his walk.

    Poor thing...there are so many like buster who have the hip displasia. Hope he still will have many more years without greater problems.

    Brilliant moment

    I know he'll be spoilt rotten and there will be loads more moments like this.

    sad news. So can no longer be run as before. This is so distressing for the dogs, especially, such as Buster.
    Beautiful picture. It had a small stone in his mouth?
    Hoping for the best
  • Mark Billiau. 03/21/2012 11:00

    Sad to read the bad news of Buster.
    I hope the medication will work well.
    Beautiful and well composed shot of your friend, Bryan !

    poor buster! hip displasia is not a nice thing to get but at least you know abou it now and get it treated, so with his medication life won't be too troublesome and painful for him! love this shot of him, bryan! the cool blue of the background and the dreamy eyes of water-loving buster, doing what he loves best: retrieving rocks and playing on the beach with his master in close reach! greetings, sabine.
