Hiya it's me Chance the ageing Border Collie. I am getting older.
I don't chase the ball as long or as hard as I have done in summers past. I am not fond of summer...being mostly black I absorb the heat and get hot. I prefer to take my naps indoors in the bathroom on the tile floor where it is cool. I also like to have the fan moving air gently when I lay on the couch. I like ice cubes in my water dish.
Some days they call me limpy....then they usually say "Getting old sucks." I take special pills for my aching old joints.
I stay inside when Far Side mows "It is a rule." I don't like the bells outside the door...if someone rings them I want inside "Right now." I don't like windy days or thunder. So far this year I have had only one tick...that is a good thing. I have had recent ear troubles but Far Side fixed me all up.
I might have some silvery gray hairs around my muzzle but since I have white hairs they don't show very much at all.
I am ten years and seven months old now. Far Side says "You are a senior dog now Chance...she would know."
