Our family Springer Spaniel – Abby

Speaking of Indiana.. for Labor Day we went to visit family in Indiana and had the chance to spend some time with the family dog Abby- an English Springer Spaniel. While up there, she celebrated her 11th birthday! I can definitely tell she’s getting older. She tires our much faster than she used to and has some added little quirks. For example, she won’t go up the stairs unless the light is on and she will only walk half way out on the boat dock. She has to be convinced to walk to the end so we can put her in the boat. She still however, loves to get into the neighbors garbage, which is a scary thing because the last time she did that, a chicken bone became stuck  in her throat.

We had a great time and it was great to see the entire family. In this photo, Abby is cooling off after spending some time outside. Does anyone have an aging pet that has started to exhibit some odd quirks?
