I love it! It's always so nice to see the older gold having a wonderful time and getting around so well!
Care to share some tips on how you keep your girl so active, healthy and happy?

How wonderful that Hayley is still going strong. I love the old gold faces. They just look so very, very sweet.

Hayley is gorgeous. Give her a hug for me too.;)

How truly remarkable Haley is! Treasure every moment and do not take any of them for granted. I wish there was somewhere I could take my old girl swimming that did not require a climb to get in or out of the water.

Hayley looks like she could be my Buddy's sister. He is also 13 and a half and still going strong. Lives in the pool in the summer.

Thanks for the wonderful comments. I think the biggest thing has been swimming her as often as possible. I've probably averaged about 5x per week for the last couple years. I have a couple spots within a 10 minute drive and I can limit the trip to 1 hour which is great.. Both areas have great access points and multiple lakes/ponds. Also, I "try" to keep her weight in check. She's a tad heavy right now at 74 lbs. I have a 18 mo who is a tad below weight so I'm always feeding him. She always gets something. The swimming is as much mental as physical that is for sure.

so heartwarming! I love the golden oldies!
I have a very spry 14 year old golden being boarded here at the pet hotel right now. He doesn't act a day over 10 !

Hayley - you go girl! Duke is 8 1/2 and battling (and winning) the fight against lymphoma. He is also an avid swimmer. I am looking forward to when he is 13 and still going strong.

Thank you for sharing - she is beautiful
