Marty is still the perfect dog. He still learns new tricks, to the delight of my grandchildren and students, and can now "sit pretty", "dance" and chase his tail, as well as the old stuff.
He and my 4 y/o granddaughter are inseparable. When she was a baby, he would get upset when she started to walk, and would hurry over and wrap his whole body around her legs to protect her. Of course, that would make her lose balance and fall--onto him. Then she'd cry and he would kindly stick his tail in her face and wag it to distract her. :) For a long time, they had a symbiotic relationship with food. Thank goodness that has stopped....mostly.
We have adopted the rule that food dropped...ahem!...by accident onto the floor is Marty's. Even though he is now a senior, he can still occasionally be tempted to play by insistent puppies.
