August 13, 2015 by The Dog Rules
Dog is now 15 years young.
In her heart she is still the rambunctious puppy I brought home. In reality she is somewhat arthritic, with the diminished sight, hearing and “bad hips” of a senior dog.
Yesterday we walked to the nearby park where she found a stick (twig actually) and dropped it at my feet before looking up with the puppy look that clearly said “Throw It!”.
I gave it a gentle toss about 3 feet away and watched her do a stiff-legged “run” to fetch it.
Seizing the twig in her teeth she proudly pranced back to me. In my heart I saw the dancing puppy she had once been. Again she dropped the stick at my feet doing her little dance and begging for another throw. ❤
