He’s still well and happy, but at 13 and a half years old, I feel his spirit starting to wander when he sleeps. I didn’t used to be able to get anywhere close to him when he was sleeping without him waking up and greeting me with a wag and a sweet squinty hello. Our every day together is precious. ...

My heart. Senior dogs are so precious. ...

A little drama right at sunset last night. I always pray to be with my dogs if those last golden rays of light break through like that. ...

I love it when they smile in their sleep. #anthropomorphicanimals ...

Two of these dogs don’t much care for the tractor-mower. One of them is riveted. I’ll bet you can guess which dog wouldn’t stop following me today. ...
