That "old man" being our 14 year old black lab...."Bear"! In continuing my February "list of loves", Mr. Bear has to be included!!!
Let me tell you, this guy is a trooper! He came to us back in 1996. I was jogging through our neighborhood and he came out of nowhere and started following me. He hung around our house for about a week, then disappeared. A few days later he reappeared with what looked like some cuts and bruises from being hit by a car. We took him to a vet who made sure he was o.k., then we tried to find his "family" with no luck. At that point he became ours and has been pretty spoiled ever since! I will admit that his life was a little more luxurious before the kids came along, but he has adapted very well and he lets them poke, prod, and pull on him without a peep (or growl, I guess is the better word).
Here's to you "Old Man" you've been a great addition to our family!!
He can weasel into the most odd places:
He knows where to go to get some lovin':
He definitely knows how to savor the good life:
and has become a very big fan of the pool!
Lovin' our furry family member~
