    TalkingThis is Moby

    Hi, my name is John and would like to introduce Moby. Moby is 11 and was born on April 29th, 2001. He is my best friend (and I think even my fiance is okay with that at this point) and has been with me through a lot of changes in my life. At times when he is doing his dreaming "ruff ruff" legs motoring thing, I think he's dreaming of chasing dogs and protecting me.

    Moby is a very big American lab, and maybe a month ago, tipped the scales at 93lbs. He is very long and tall and has a good waistline. Not that he's vain or anything, but he definitely isn't overweight going by the "site inspection." That said, he's getting up there, it's cold out here (where I live it's colder than usual), and he's definitely feeling the arthritis/hip issues that I knew would come. So we are working on adding some supplements, keeping good exercise, but taking a little off the portions.

    I am attaching a picture of Moby from a few years back. He's not embarrassed now that he's a graybeard, but this shows his personality - trying to tell me that computer work isn't the only important thing to do during the day. That is, there is also throwing the ball and going to the beach.

    I am on the forum now because I want to gather all the wisdom I can as my friend enters the later stages of his life. I want to be positive and see how I can help Moby stay healthy, help others, be supportive, and be the best friend I can to Moby.

    Initially, I am going to be posting on arthritis and hip health, and to understand where Moby is and what I can do to make sure he's happy. That said, on to the health part of the forum!

    Oh I think I unintentionally gave everyone the younger "head shot." The first picture was from when he was 6 or 7. Here is one from today

    And I still think he's a handsome guy at 11. He's just got that Simba thing going on now (graybeard = wisdom)
