Jocoyn I just remembered a dog of mine black Keno who was an active police dog working with Metro Toronto -- over 10 years of service , when the realized how old he was put him into mandatory retirement.
The dog retired to his handlers home -- and started to get depressed . So being the station favourite , the staff sergeant allowed him to be an honorary k9 member , sit in his office , still meet and greet all the familiar handlers . Once in while in some training exercise they would run a car with sirens on with Keno in it where in his beautiful doggy mind "he was at work" "he was still needed and important". The dog lived to 14 years .

When my lab got to be around 13, we played fetch at the lake or river. She could swim for hours with no ill effects, but running on dry land seemed to take its toll.

Yes it does seem to be the dry land running. Well playing around with working him more. Beau needs to work more on scattered bones anyway and that is a very exacting and tedious kind of searching. So I guess Grim just needs to work them too. So many hours in the day. Oy.
