BETWEEN TRIPS to the Inistioge Puppy Rescue, I have concluded that we care for a pensioner at home.He is rather low maintenance, eats while standing up, sleeps most of the day and has some infirmities. This morning I watched him bump into a glass door and then walk right into the front fender of our parked car. So he is losing sight along with his hearing. Nonetheless, Doggie is faithful and entertaining. He will probably tick over to the 100 year old mark. We plan to celebrate that event before the end of 2007 and are stockpiling candles along with trays of yogurt, his preferred breakfast meal.
