And also getting older...





"Puppy" is getting older. We have just discovered recently that she officially has the "old-dog smell" right along with the "old-dog breath". Oh yes. It's lovely. She is getting all white around her snout and paws where her fur was a nice reddish-brown. And we started buying the "mature" dog food. She is almost 8 years old now. She is such a great dog and has always been real good with the kids.

Her favorite thing is fetch. If you toss her toy once, you better prepare to be there for a long time. She will keep bringing it back no matter what. She will stop and take a drink once in a while, but she is right back at your feet waiting in no time. She's almost obsessive about it. I get tired throwing it, and I'm not running back and forth like her. Goofy pup.

We still love her.

We have stains on our walls from throwing that ball when she visited us. It was so much fun.

Thanks Dingy. I was leaving THAT out!! But we do. That poor dog. We were throwing the ball down the steps. And she would run down, get it, run back up and drop it for us to do again! I can go count the marks if you would like to know how many times she ran up and down the steps! But it was fun and we enjoyed her being here. (before you deserted us for the Arctic!)
