There is a great site called Lords and labradors and they have special "drying robes" which people say are fantastic for their wet dogs.

They're a bit expensive (£29.99) but I'm saving up for a couple for my 2.

Unless the reviews are not true, you wouldn't need to have lots of towels as some have said they wrap their dog up in it and by the time they're home, the dogs dry and cozy.
@chopples I bought a drying coat for our girl after she had to undergo major surgery for remove a cancerous turmour. She loves the rock pools on our nearest beach and the wife didn't want her getting cold. Does dry her off well especially now that her coat has grown back.

Cheers @WeeScottishLass and @gibbsy

Will check all these suggestions out, we did use a coat for Trudi years ago, no idea where it gone though, alas with lockdown they have both put on a bit of weight so it probably wouldn't fit anyway🤦‍♂️. Worked pretty well though but was more for prevention than drying, great at the beach, not so great in lakes, microfiber inside and waterproof outside

My current dogs are not that old (7 and 5) but I know that feeling, time does fly.

Amazing what value u can get from a tennis ball.

I'll put this one up. Mali couldn't catch a ball to save her life. Different story with a biscuit though.:)

We lost our Miniature Schnauzer this week, he was 12 & 1/2 yrs old and had cancer.
We are thinking of getting another pup in a couple of months but I am apprehensive about how we can socialise him properly with all that’s going on.
Any thoughts on this?.
I can’t quite believe this but 4 weeks after losing our Miniature Schnauzer we have had to put Murphy our Goldendoodle to sleep 😥, he was nearly 12 and had been diagnosed with Laryngeal Paralysis.

Having gone from a family with 3 dogs to just one dog in such a short space of time we instantly hated it .
We found it so hard the first day, to lose your pet is a huge heartache but we decided almost immediately that we wanted another. Our adult children didn’t agree but we’ve always had dogs and life isn’t the same without them.

@jonna You've done the right thing. I always swore that after going through the heartache of losing a dog it would be my last. When we lost our last Field Spaniel it was over a year before we got our current Cocker girl. I swear her and wife are joined at the hip.

I do like Borders. You'll have to learn how to hand strip now.

I'm thinking of getting a new sausage puppy next year at some point but I'm not sure.

Just my 2 are 11 so might not have many years left with them.

Not sure they'd be too keen on a new addition though 🙄

Well she’s settling in really well, I think she’s going to be bossy as she stalks my older dog and pounces on him and if he shows his annoyance she just yaps at him and charges again. I’ve never seen a dog stalking like a cat before.
