Happy 12th Birthday, Tessie!

She is pretty old, moves slowly, loves the snow-still, hears poorly, sees shortly, tolerates Clancy barely but she is still the same sweet puppy we brought home all those years ago. Happy Birthday Tessie!

How great, 12 years of happy memories. I think older dogs develop selecting hearing though instead of hearing loss. I've had dogs that couldn't hear me calling them, but heard cheese drop on the floor a room a way.

She looks COLD. Beautiful dog.

I should have baked you a cake while I was there. I hope you have more birthdays. You have always been a nice girl. I cry to think of your demise.

My son's chocolate lab is 12 also. She is quite arthritic. She comes to play at the camp on the river chasing sticks and driving in all day as if she is a puppy, only to suffer pain for three or for days when she goes home. It will be a sad day when she will have to be put down.

Belated wishes to sweet Tessie. I too have an old dog that we got from shelter in Chicago Heights. Pashka has been my constant companion for nearly 16 years.
Thanks so much for visiting my blog! Wishing all the best in the new year.
Keep smiling.

Anbother thought about your chocolate lab. Did you notice the sample card by Jacquie Lawson with her lab on it. Go and click on it.

I really like her animated cards. She quite often features her dog. A visit to here website is very entertaining, you can view all her cards.
