    Welcome Jen,
    My old boy Ernie is 10.5 and he has always thought he has us on a short lead, but is often surprised to discover he is wrong.
    Tess the baby is 5 and she is stubborn. My Ma Brown pretends she has no idea what sit means and we have a battle.

    My yellow lab is 12.5. She lays around all day and sleeps but still has the same smile on her face. Her 9.5 year old "sister" just crossed the Rainbow Bridge Monday and Abbey just doesn't seem like herself. My poor girl.

    Gordy will be 10 in december...He doesn't do his late night potty any more and likes to sleep a little more during the day. I guess they just don't feel the urge to be energetic anymore. He will still jump around if I pick up a ball though.

    My old man is my black lab Kid. He is 12.5 tis a bit slower and has lost some of his hearing (think from too much gunfire in an enclosed duck blind) but he still barks for his treats, begs to the point of drooling for a piece of bread, and rest comfortably on his bed the rest of the day.

    My yellow, Hank, is 10 and my black lab, Dewey, is 7. Hank is slowing down, but he still has energy to spare at the beach.
    They both love Running with us, but we know it won't be long before Hank won't be able to go.

    We are now at the point where we are splitting the dogs up for outings. Hank is not really up for running anymore, so one of us will go run with Dewey, and the other takes Hank for a nice forest walk. His back legs seem to be losing some of their stability. He is still super happy though. We had our second "chiropractic" adjustment yesterday....we will see if it makes any difference.
