K #5, grateful

Today I am grateful I still have K at one week shy of his 10th birthday, and for having Jane beat the odds with her disease, she is nothing short of a medical miracle at nearly 13.

For many breeds turning 10 isn't a big deal ...but with owning a flat-coat, the sad reality is it is - especially to have him healthy, active and crazy ... still. The older my dogs get, the more I love them ... if that's possible.

Hug your dogs.

I was just reading an article yesterday about a breeder of flat coated retrievers who is planning a breeding program to try to eliminate some of the more serious health issues that are hereditary in the breed.

So true and so sad. It's never long enough. Not ever.
