Sweet brown eyes clouded
Back legs wobble with stiffness
Heart loving and strong
Tippy, the matriarch of the canine and feline family, is approaching 15 years old. She is battling a bout of a canine virus. It is taking its toll on her (and me). Our quarantine has made me realize how precious her life and the contribution of joy she has given our lives. Although her body is rebelling, her heart and spirit are strong and loving. She won’t turn down belly rubs and rarely turns down treats.
She tells me “it’s hell turning old!!”
At this point, I tend to agree with her!
