Getting old is hard work. In addition to not being able to see, I am now have trouble hearing. I can hear my Daddy calling me if he is close by but I can not longer tell where the sound is comming from. My world was already very dark but now it is getting much too quiet. My Daddy does things to stimulate me as much as possable but I get tired so fast. Some times I get really lonely and cry softly. When my Papa hears it he come to confort me until I feel better. When I walk around my house I keep bumping into thing and this makes me very unhappy, so I stay in my little bed more and more. I still want to play with my little brat of a brouther Froggy but sometimes it is too much for me. My Daddy tries very hard to make me feel better. As a Fox Terrier, no one can say I haven't lived life to the fullest. I have traveled to a lot of the US, I have been to Italy and got to pee all over Rome. A lot of Roma dogs knew I had been there.

I also had eight beautiful babies and know when my time is up I will live on in my children and their children. Living is lots of fun and I have no regrets for my my 15 wonderful years.

My story might sound sad, but if you think about it I really have had a wonderful life. Even though I am very old, I can look back knowing that this Terrier did it all and wouldn't change anything.
