Jake hiking and swimming at 11!

Hey all,
Just wanted to share a video of Jacob going for a recent hike/swim. He is 11 y/o and he does have hip dysplasia and degenerative myelopathy, but you would never know it! Not as sure footed as he used to be as you can see when he slips, but rest assured he really doesn't know the difference. When we got home, instead of wanting to sleep, he wanted to play ball! Enjoy!

Thanks for posting this video, it was very heartwarming to watch

I would not have guessed this was a 11 year old GSD, he looks great.

I love that even with his HD & DM you let him enjoy what he likes, hanging out, swimming & getting sticks out of the water He's happy, you can tell.
