BUT, this is one of my favourite dogs in the whole wide world.
Jazmin ... AKA "Jazzy Flat-coat" see it large
Besides my own dog Jane, the only dog I have known longer, is Jazmin. She is a very special dog to me. She is 11.5 years old and she is still bratty, sassy, spunky, independant and perfect.
She helped confirm the reason we wanted a flat-coat when we were looking for a second dog.
The first time I met Jazmin, she had her head burried in a snow bank with her butt in the air, acting pretty much how she does now - 10 years later.
I would love to be running my dogs in Agility at the age of 11, like Jazzy ... and still with the same spunk as a youngster. It's amazing what an impact a dog can have on us ... and she's not even mine!
I think her personality is a part of what keeps her so young at heart. She barks, she bounces, she ALWAYS has fun. I love telling people how old she is, and I love it when they say "really??"
