Default Let's try an older dog

Here is Strauss in his prime at age 5


And here he is now, about a month and a half shy of 10 years of age

Thanks

I wish he had more muscle tone, but then I realize he's a month and a half shy of 10. He's normal. I let him exercise at his own pace and do what he wants. I keep him mobile and that keeps him happy.

Other than his color I have always liked Strauss. I would maybe like a bit more oomph to his rear. He looked/looks a little front heavy in both pictures, but this is just nit picking. He is holding up well.

I think he looks great! Especially for his age. Very balanced looking dog.

Lisa, I will admit when I see his color on any other dog, I go "Oh, God NO!" I recognize it as totally faulty and gross (haha). I'm pretty sure I can only tolerate it on him because he's my special dog.

He is a little front heavy.

Can't believe he's almost 10....cripes. UNACCEPTABLE! lol
