Birthday Girl

We just celebrated Addie's 13th birthday this past October 30th. To commemerate the occasion we took her and Finigan on a flat, 5 mile hike near Palmer Lake. She did so well that we took them on a shorter hike Sunday. She seemed to enjoy herself quite a bit on both days.

Her vestibular issues still remain. She is not as sure footed as she used to be - especially when she gets excited. Her head tilt is still present but it does seem to be getting marginally less noticeable.

She is truly a remarkable dog. We hope to post another birthday message next year but if that doesn't happen we know that we have been very fortunate to have her in our lives nonetheless. We simply try to cherish each day we are given with her and hope that her final months and years with us are as enjoyable to her as they are to us.

Happy Birthday sweet girl.


Cowgirl said... wonderful. Puppies are great, but old dogs are the very best.

Happy B'day !

I can't believe so much time has gone by since I first learned of your Addie. Happy Birthday to your beautiful girl, and congratulations to the whole family!
