It was only the past year or so that his joints started to bug him. He really only got sick about a week ago.
My wife knew it was about to happen, so she picked up another dog. He's a good dog. He plays with the babies well and is really protective of them. He guards the house well. He also has a strong pack instinct, which I love to see in dogs. The only downside is that he has all the personality of a rock and he's kind of a homebody.
This is Charlie. He seems to be an American Dingo, which is kind of cool, because American Dingoes were the stuff of crypto-zoologists up until the mid 1980s.
