This thought is derived from another thread here.
It's been two years since Paddy has been to the reservoir for swimmies with Seamus. He was nine years then. Oh, the swimming part was fine but he labored after the first six retrieves or so. Not on the swimming part so much, (although even that was not up to Seamus' young ability) but climbing up the bank into the field. When he knew he'd had enough, he'd leave the athletic water retrieves to Shea while he roamed around in the wildflowers, rolling in the grass, inspecting goose poop, then laying down to watch the activities.
Kind of bittersweet. I miss seeing my old boy in the water. He was so lovely there!
Seamus and Flynn
Aw, take him with you anyway so he can enjoy what he can enjoy
I can't believe Paddy is that old already. My gosh, time FLIES!!! It's just so unfair.
:-* for Paddy. Yes it is so sad as they get older.
