Christmas morning, while dropping the girls off at mom’s house before heading out of town, Zoe assumed her usual position at the table & was posing in all sorts of hilarious ways as she tried to get comfortable in the chair.
She has always been a paw-crosser since she was a puppy. Yesterday marked her 10th birthday- I can’t believe we have shared a decade together of ups & downs, high & lows, 5 different houses, several men and a few cities. She had her full check up last month & they said she is doing great for her age. She still runs more than 3 miles with me a few times a week & only occasionally gets stiff or sore. I keep both dogs on Cosequin & it really has helped her joints and movement.
Her whole face is solid white now & it looks like she’s got a mask on her muzzle. Her paws are pretty white too & it seems like her coat overall is lightening up with age. She’s getting lots of lumps & bumps with old age, but the vet isn’t too concerned by any of them right now.
She seems like she’s getting a little more ornery in her old age on occasion, but she’s generally sweet and loving 99% of the time- especially when Mia isn’t around. I loved all the various positions she tried in the chair to get comfortable, occasionally looking around and checking things out in the kitchen.
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Beautiful Saturday to catchup & then heading to see the Rockets game tonight.
