Time never seems to poke its head out and wag a finger at me, because usually I'm too busy to even think about it. But the other day, after Fiona came home from her latest Spring grooming, I looked at her & thought...is she a Dalmation? She has spots showing through the short fur making her look like a Spotty Scottie. I took pictures & looking at them realized that she is definitely showing her age. It made me so sad as I still remember the day we went to the breeders house to see the week old puppies with eyes closed and laying in the welping box. I instantly feel in love with her when I picked her up and snuggled her against my face, and heard her sigh.
We are just happy she has made it this long with us considering 18 months ago she almost died. She definitely knows what she wants & makes sure we get if for her when she wants! Life with an old dog isn't easy, but that is the contract I made with that sweet puppy almost 12 years ago.
