This thread is so old. But she is still here! 30 days till 13! She is kinda blind and has had to use a ramp to get up and down the stairs during some health problems.I hear ya, my girl is ten. She thinks she is 3. But I can tell when we have had a busy day she doesn't bounce back quite like she used to, needs extra sleep.
I look back over our live together and can hardly believe it has flown by like it has, since that little puppy camd out of the crate at the airport so long ago.
I try to make her happy however I can, practicing ob or nosework or take her for a sniffy walk in the park. At her age you never know. I hope she lives to be old and blind and need a ramp to get in and out of the house, but I try to just enjoy every day with her because I have learned you never know when they will have to go.
