A Lesson for All
















Here's my sweet boy, Indy. He's been right by my side since the day I got him nearly fifteen years ago. Then he was an eight week old fluffy ball of energy.
















Today his vision and hearing are both practically gone, and his back legs have a pronounced wobble. But there's nothing wrong with his sense of smell. He's not too old to follow after a yummy treat...
















and he's still fast enough to beat Bogey to the prize.

Indy can accomplish a goal without letting life's obstacles get in the way. Nothing's going to stop him. My little Indy demonstrates a perfect lesson for us all.

And I see a story about Indy in some anthology or magazine in the near future, too.

Reminds us of Ancient Pip. So sad they have to get old. Have a fabulous Friday.
Best wishes Molly

So true...but it breaks my heart to see our furry pals age so fast!

We can all learn from our pets.

It's so sad to see our pets getting older. I lost two dogs and a cat last year and my house sure is quiet.

Indy, there must be a lot of lucky dogs around, but I think we are two of the luckiest. Keep on keepin' on, my brother!
