Time DOES fly


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.

I found this stick, will you throw it?

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!”.

Please throw it. I put it right here where you can reach 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. ❤

Proud girl fetching her stick... That'll do Dog. That'll do.

The Dog Rules

Once the proud guardian of a rather cheeky Border Collie/Aussie Cattle Dog mix, may she forever rest in peace, my favourite activities were those things that included my canine friend. Now I have a new canine buddy in my life. He's also a Border Collie and sassy like my girl was. We're in the middle of an adventure; teaching him how to be a good canine citizen I spend my spare time volunteering at the local animal shelter as a dog walker/trainer.
