Time to Cry Tuesday – Old Dog in the Snow

This old girl has always loved the snow. She would be the first one out the door and the last one back in. But 11 some odd winters have played havoc on her old bones and for the first time she had a really hard time this year. Granted we got slammed with a foot and a half and moving around was hard for everyone.

But her heart wanted to bound while her body knew it did not have it in her anymore. Don’t be too sad. She had a modified snow day. And she seemed content to lay in the sun in the front hallway for the remainder of the day watching the weather through the glass.

But I will tell you that first thing this morning when she woke up and went to the back door I could absolutely read her mind, “And I am so supposed to go out and pee in this how?”

    This made me cry. I saw this photo earlier and wondered how Mel was doing. This is way too much white stuff for the best of us. Shovel her a path.

    • No worries, Liz. Gary was out in the middle of the blizzard last night shoveling paths to her favorite spots from the garage. She is a very well taken care of pup. Thanks for worrying about her.

    my heart can’t take it. Just love her up…

  4. My dog is getting old too. After the first snow of the season, he used to rush out and stick his face right into the snow. Now he doesn’t even want to walk in it. Oh the joys of watching your pet age.
