Since being told back in June that i have the BIG C I've had my ups and downs some days good some not so good. My good friend arthritis is getting worse I can't jump up in chairs, on beds or even on tables as much as I used to my back end is getting weeker but I'm still able to enjoy life . We have a new fur neighbor that moved in the end of august he is a little Malti poo named Oliver he's furry nice and we is good friends he came over a couple times in my yard to play and it was fun . He thinks he is a big fur but he's not. then who am I to tell him differently. I am enjoying my senior dog days and am looking forward to all the fun I'll have come winter.
I might be 12 years old which is kind of old for my breed but I love life even with a bad hip. Snow and cold weather are my favorite but as I get older I find myself liking the cool spring and fall days better . My mind is still young and I want to ruin and chase critters all around but my body says slow down. I have my good days and bad days most are good days but when i have a bad day mommy knows it and helps me thru it by letting me rest and take things at my pace. I still love going new places and smelling new things parks are the best for walks b/c of all the smells. Recently I discovered human babies. I wanted to kiss and love on them but was told not to. I wanted to figure out why they smell so much different then kids and adults. I have yet to figure that one out. I am looking forward to a camping trip in May that should be lots of fun even tho it's been a few years since i was last camping I can still remember the smell of a campfire and the mean little critters that stood on the fire ring just out of reach and teased me. Mommy finds herself worrying more and more about me these days and worries about me crossing the bridge when she least expects it. I tell her not to worry that she will know when it is time for me to cross the bridge and it isn't anytime soon. BOL I can't wait until all the deck furniture comes out and mommy spend time outside with me playing ball or just watching me stalk critters. Even tho I'm not a hunting dog I love to chase the critters out of the yard.It keeps me happy and healthy. That and chasing Alex around the yard now that is fun esp b/c he is smaller and younger then me.
Spring is here and so is the rain and flooding. BOL That is ok with me tho b/c that means it will be extra special when the doggie park drys out and we can go play there again. My little brofur has been going to doggie school and coming home teaching me what he learned even tho I already know most of it. I do have a love in my life now here on dogster she is so sweet I go to bed every night dreaming about her. She is the most prettiest girl around.We are made fur each other.
