It’s tough having three old dogs in the house. Of course we love them all, and it’s not like we have to spend lot of time exercising them and doing lots of things with them. However, as they age, we have to spend more on medical care. And make sure they get high quality food, a fair amount of exercise to keep them in shape, and good health care.
This picture is from May 5, 2002. We got Angel back in 2002. From left to right, Lucy, Angel (in my husband’s lap), and Levi is with me. All our smooth blue collies. They are such dolls and we love all of them.
Lucy now has megaesophagus and she’s just 10 years old. But we are thrilled that we are managing it okay and she is doing well. Lucy is also pretty incontinent and we need steam cleaners to keep the carpets clean, but we don’t have many carpets so that’s good! Angel is about 12 years old, we are guessing, because she’s a rescue. Angel is very healthy though and so we are happy about that. And Levi is 9.5 years old. He’s also very healthy but he does have arthritis now, typical of an older dog.
I’ll be a wreck when these three go. I love them all. And Levi is my soul mate dog. They are unique and wonderful and we hope they live a few more years with us so we can cherish and love them!
