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.
Jake, our first but not our last. Gone far too soon.
