My Libby turned 11 today. She is doing well, hasn't had any reoccurrence of the growth we had removed a year ago. She definitely has slowed down some though, and has lost I think several pounds, maybe a little muscle mass in her hind quarters. She is still eating well, though, I think some of the weight loss might be from trying to keep up with Tugg. I'm giving her a little more food to eat, of course she likes that. She sleeps more now, but then, so do I. We are aging together I guess. I am a little freaked out, I lost her sister Tess a little over a month after her 11th birthday, she too was perfectly healthy on her 11th birthday, but then died from hemangio. I am so superstitious I won't probably breathe until we get Libby beyond that point. Tugg has the next birthday, he is still a baby and turns 1 on December 12. Then my sweet Raider turns 8 on December 26. He too is slowing down some, he knows he can't keep up with Tugg anymore so doesn't even try. Love all three of my doggies so much.
