Okay yeah, that sounds dumb doesn't it?
No, I'm not one of those blogger that celebrate their pets birthday on their blog, but this is a mile stone birthday of sorts for our old dog!
This is our Dog Mitzi and she's nineteen!
That's gosh darn old for a doggie!
Well as of yesterday October 23, but my phone lines where acting flunky so I couldn't blog last night like I would have done to post this.
So here I'm doing it a day late, but shh don't tell her I forgot. But then again she probably doesn't know she is that old anyway? And the neat this is we have had her since she was six weeks old puppy, and she is a cocker spaniel in case you were wondering.
She has had her health problems though; she had a breast removed because she had breast cancer, and she got lost one time being let out to go potty and couldn't find her way back for six days with us going nuts trying to find her. Then she shows up and my mom's house and she had gotten bitten on the face by a coyote! She had a big hole in her face, that took a while to heal up and you could see the membrane in her sinuses through it. And one of her eyes slowly shrunk from the bite from the top tooth, and the eye might be MIA now because I'm too chicken to look for it.
Other than that she has trouble getting around because she had arthritis in her hips, and we have to carry her down the steps so she can go outside and go potty. At least she doesn't wonder off now. And she also cannot get up and get all comfortable on my furniture like she use to, like in this photo that was taken a while ago.
So Happy nineteen Mitzi, you are the oldest pet that I have ever had.
(Well unless you count the tortise I had as a child, and no telling how old he was.)
