When you and your dog are both Seniors,
you have a lot in common…
I brought Maxie home in June of 2001. Little did I know how the years would fly by and one day (and that day is now) I would call her a Senior. Now it is true for myself too.
What is most entertaining are the similarities in the two of us. Her eyes have become cloudy and I now need glasses. We both have a thyroid issue. She struggled with her weight and had to adjust to a new diet; I diligently walk more and make better meal choices to keep myself at a healthy weight.
She moves a little slower when she gets out of bed and I creak and squeak as I do my morning stretch.
I shove away thoughts when I will have to face a day without her. Instead, I concentrate on the spring in her step when I dangle the leash for a walk. That little stub of a tail still wags non-stop when she greets me at the end of my work day.
Now that I have had Maxie long enough to call her a Senior – I can think of nothing better than the two of us growing old together; and I plan on enjoying every minute of it!
Are you and your dog growing old together?
