Teaching An Old Dog New Tricks

26 Nov

I’ve discovered a remedy for Canine Old Age.  Take them to a farm.

Charlie is having the time of her life at my sister’s farm.  First there’s all sorts of people around & second, when she’s sent outside there’s tons of stuff to bark at.  After our Thanksgiving feast a few of us braved the winds & went out for a walk.  Charlie went off leash straight after the cats.  I think she forgot that she’s 12 not 2.  She sent the cats running & gave a good chase which ended with a spectacular twirl on the ice.  Then she bounded after a few cows, followed all sorts of smells, & collapsed happily on the rug when it was time to warm up.

I love seeing her regain a little of her puppyhood.
