    DefaultSummer's 16 today!

    A friend of mine has a yellow lab named Summer (great name for a lab IMO). She gave me permission to share this recent email to celebrate her birthday:

    Can hardly believe it - Summer is 16 today. Based on her weight - and she's become a trim Lab as of late - she is 99. Her mind is still pretty sharp but her back legs don't always support her. SHE still likes treats and even though she no longer hears well - she can hear the word "treat" from a long way back!

    Her hearing is so like mine. When I call her she looks in every direction to try to locate me. That stereo hearing is gone - and her eye sight has waned. She's not as interested in her meals as before - but treats, well that's the other story. And she still likes attention. Am glad it is warming up. We can sit in the yard afternoons when I get home. Think she likes the warmth of the afternoon sun on the grass.

    She sleeps away a lot of the day. And doesn't relish early mornings - I usually have breakfast before I wake her. And then, when I do wake her, I do so gently so as not to scare her too badly. She still runs in her dreams, chasing her youth, I guess! Those legs are going pretty fast bearing no weight and moving only air.

    It is interesting having a doggie senior to share time with.

    Oh goodness, how fortunate your friend is to still have a contented Summer.

    Pass on our Birthday Congratulations for Summer to your friend, who I hope will cherish every remaining day of their companionship.

    Happy 16th Birthday Summer!
