Hope you are all doing well! I managed to wrestle the laptop away from the kitties (I am seriously out-numbered in this house) and find my way from Catster to Dogster so I could paw an update in my diary!
All is well with me. Posted some new photos taken today ~ Check out my ears, they've turned gray! They also stopped working; yes friends, I recently went deaf. But do not fret, it's not bothering me at all. And the next time there are fireworks or thunder, I won't even have to get anxious and hide because I can't hear them!
Mom has been working on using some basic signs with me, primarily "Good girl" and "More?" You can definitely teach an old dog new tricks because I'm learning! But after 14 years together, Mom and I communicate pretty well, even without words.
There are two big challenges for me currently: One, my arthritis makes it hard for me to walk on our hardwood floors and get in and out of the car. And the second big challenge is that I *REALLY* don't like to be brushed or groomed. As for the floors, Mom has put down multiple rugs to help me. And the grooming? I've became seriously resistent to it. Mom thinks my coat is looking a bit scruffy (it's also turned to a more coarse texture in the last year) and she's going to talk to the v-e-t about it at my next check-up.
Other than those annoying issues, all is well with me! Enjoying my golden years with lots of treats, loving, and sunshine! Thanks for all the yummy treats this weekend, too!
