I have just joined and setting up the profile and albums does not seem to be straight forward, or maybe I am still suffering from a mental block as I lost mu beautiful Central Asian Shepherd, Tzar, to bloat a few days ago. Would appreciate chatting with others about dogs, especially the Central Asian Shepherd breed, which is rare in Australia. Thank you.
Hi there Alaa ( is that correct?)
Sorry about your loss of your Central Asian Shepherd. I did not know that bloat was a problem with the breed but I know of someone else who lost a couple of their CAS to bloat also.
Thank you for coming here and signing up - Yep - it is not as easy as facebook but it is easy to learn... for albums you can click this link http://molosserdogs.com/m/photos/albums/my/add/
We have two Caucsasians now but have had many more in the past and they all died from old age. Oldest was 16.5 years. Welcome to molosserdogs, it is great to have you.
Thank you Gary; it is great to be here and thank you for the facility ...
Sorry for your loss. I lost my bull Arab to bloat recently as well. Any dog can get it, especially large dogs. Even wolves can get it. Not a nice way to go, and pretty distressing for the owner as it strikes out of no where. Perfectly healthy dog one day, dead dog the next.
So sorry to hear about your dog. It is a painful experience. It has been a little over a month since we lost Tzar and we continue to miss him badly. It was a devastating sadness at the beginning, followed by a short period of anger. Now, I am avoiding the videos I have for/with him to try to recover. I don't think I will ever fully recover from the loss of Tzar. But, time is a healer, and hope that eventually the hurt will be replaced by the wonderful memories.
