Such A Sweet Disposition

   Well, Rory has been helping me clean up a little around here. Hard to believe she'll be 13 years old in October! She is one of the sweetest dogs I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. And she maintains that loving attitude under some very trying circumstances. Yep, I'm talking about all the cats and Blossom!!!  Perhaps I should start referring to her as Saint Rory. Patroness and Protector of kittens! How fitting that would be?! ha ha ha
    We are dealing with her increasing deafness pretty well. I'm learning a lot about elderly dogs, but still have a lot of reading to do on that subject.  In the meantime, she'll still go out and play like a puppy if the mood strikes her! Sometimes those joints just don't want to move fast, and I can certainly empathize with her!!!  Its all about dealing with what Life brings our way each and every day. Try and remain calm, flexible and capable of enjoying the fun and beauty along our path. We can sure learn a lot from dogs!!!


  1. She is beautiful. Old dogs are great and wise creatures.

  2. Hey! Its Kate from work! She looks just like my 15 yr old golden chow! Mine is pretty deaf and blind now, but happy.
