I am not on here much at all anymore. Mom went back to the University to become a professor. She works a lot. Reads a lot. Still cuddles with me, especially when she is at home and has to read page after page of funny-sounding stuff. Sometimes she reads to me. Sometimes I help her understand something complex. Mostly I just sleep.
Pups, I am getting old. I am at least 12 years old now, but the vet thinks I may be up to a year or two older than that. No way of knowing. I certainly don't remember. But, that said, I feel really great. Can't see a thing, but I get around just fine. Mom does have to remind me not to park my hiney on the floor outside the closed bathroom door when she's in there because she for certain will open that door and I get whapped, but I forget. I guess she forgets too.
I am still strong and jump up on stuff and will run if we're out in the fields and Mom let's me know it's okay. My weight is good, not overweight at all, and so is my appetite. The only weird thing is that sometimes I shake. Not sure what that's about. I usually do it at some point after a meal - within the first hour or two. I don't think I'm in pain, but I like to cuddle with Mom when I shake. I'm not cold either. Temperature inside or out does not seem to make any difference to the shaking. Weird, I know. Old age does funny things.
Figured I would check in for the New Year. All is very good. I am a lucky pup. Except yes, Buddy is still here. Pffft.
Lexie, I am so happy that you are doing well for an older lady and I wish I know bout what causes your shaking. Sorry bout Buddy but you are so well loved and we are always happy to hear from you. You get on going sweet girl.

Lexie- So happy you and your furmily are doing well. Sounds like your getting along just great! The shakes an hour or two after eating????????Gma wonders if, they have checked your blood sugar????????? She had a schnauzer and they are known for diabetes....or maybe your blood sugar goes up or down too quick after eating???? She was just wondering....
