Today is my day! I am ELEVEN years old today! I am an old guy now, sometimes they call me an old fart.
I am a spoiled boy. At my elderly age my ears must be cleaned on a regular basis…with mineral oil…and my teeth get cleaned often. I like my rides every evening /late afternoon…my sorts are out if we don’t go for a ride. I moan and groan like it is the end of the world…WELL it feels like it is….then we usually get to go!!!
I have important jobs. I walk with Far Guy everyday, first we get the mail and then we go for more walks later in the day …about 2 1/2 miles…I have met some other dogs while walking…one dog gets walked while his owner is in a golf cart. Far Side walks too some days… just not as far.
My arthritis is worse some days than others…some days I limp a little and sometimes jumping in the car is really hard….but I still get there!
Far Guy didn’t think I would make it through the winter last year…but I surprised him.
Far Guy worked on a special “spot” for me most of the summer while I chased the dirt and the shovel. Two big buckets were filled with dirt and brought in to the workshop/greenhouse and one day when Andy stopped by he dug the “spot” a little deeper…until Far Side said “Good enough.” It is all covered with a board now so someone won’t accidently fall in. ( I bet if Far Side fell in she wouldn’t be happy…in fact she might get
Miney and me.
Miney is still my best friend…then Odda, Little Elvis and Putz…I like them all….and my sisters and kids and balls….and Far Guy and Far Side even when she is bossy (which is most of the time).
Happy Birthday to me! I don’t know what they have planned for me…but I know there are some homemade pumpkin treats that will be calling my name.
