Summer Updates

The summer has been great. Hot and beautiful, just the way I like it. Life has been rather uneventful, thus I haven't been posting much. My dog Kalyx, however celebrated her 15th birthday in mid June. I took her to the Vet to get a check-up as she is beginning to show her age these days. She's having difficulty going to the washroom and hass gotten a bit more incontinent.

The vet says it's the natural progression, but was still flabbergasted that she was doing so well for her breed being a Shephard Cross. Anyhow, we're trying to keep her as comfy and happy as possible, and part of her treatment is to keep her entertained and mentally alert, so we have been teaching her tricks to perform. From these videos, you would think she was still a puppy!

I love a good pooch trick. Very cute! Glad that your summer is going well. Is that ribreaker with his shirt off?

Jess said...

No fair making an old lady chase treats like that. She's obviously too mature and dignified to be doing silly dog tricks! :)

She does look like she's having fun, but I think, at her age, she's entitled to just get whatever she wants without working for it!

BTW, that's the smallest couch I've ever seen! :D

I would definitely bite whoever made me work to get my food like that! Kalyx is so, so gorgeous. No wonder you love her so much.

Ms Bees Knees said...

tornwordo - It's sad, but the pooch tricks entertain us more than her. And yes, that's RB...:)

Jess - Oh, she loves it and it keeps her senses from getting dull. The couch is very small. Can't wait to save enough for a new one!

Snooze - You would not bite me! What if it was vodka or booze? I bet I'd get you to do a few tricks! ;-P

Ms Bees Knees - Aww, thanks sweets! Actually, were the lucky ones to have such a cute dog!

Tay Hota - :) thanks Tay! All is good.

Russ - Oh god, remember when she would pee at the meer sight of a visitor? She'd get so excited and wizz all over the floor.

Dantallion - Damn, I hope I look that good too!

I hope my dog has a long and happy life like your dog.
I know I'm gonna sound like a freak... but the video with the shirtless guy giving treats to the dog really turned me on. I am on my knees begging as I type this. ;-)

Glad to see you posting again!!!
