Our dear Rosie turned 12 years old. She is still the old matriarch of the household, with the other dogs still deferring to her. While a little stiff when getting up, she runs in the yard once she gets going. (Not for long, and not far, but will still jog out to meet us when we come home.)
She is almost completely deaf. Fortunately, had taught her hand signals, while also using verbal commands, so she still understands what we want, but she can no longer hear us when we say 'No'. Had not taught her a hand signal for 'No', so she pretty much does whatever she pleases!
She barks for her treat every evening after dinner, and will often try her luck at breakfast as well, often awakening the whole house, so needless to say, she again, gets what she wants.
Ever the busy-body, when a new litter of pups arrives, she must still go in and check them out, although she is no longer interested in their rambunctious play, and will not visit with them for long.
We are so grateful for the time we have had with Rosie, and are hoping for at least another year with old Rose!
Happy 13th birthday Rosie!!!
Happy 12th birthday Rosie!!!
We were away in April, and Rosie stayed with friends at Swallowtail Farm. She was a perfect nurse maid for this little lamb.
Happy 10th birthday Rosie!
