You are only as old as you feel...

I am glad you all liked my video yesterday, we do like to walk fast, we have a lot of energy!!

Why don't you make a new friend today, visit my buddy Stella's blog. She has just been rescued and is ready to blog and make friends.

So this weekend Mom read in a magazine that senior dogs shouldn't lay on the hard ground or floor. So Mom decided to put our beds on the patio for us to sun...

Tanner tried the blue bed...

Then he tried the brown bed...

Then I took in some sun and tried to figure out which senior dog is coming to visit...

That's way cool! You got some geriatric dog coming to visit you! How exciting is that? We understand that the older ones enjoy the desert air!

Thanks, Joe, for mentioning me in your blog. That was very nice of you. I wish I could come and lay in the sunshine with you. We had a rainy weekend, and pretty soon we will be getting SNOW. Want to come and slide with me?

Well, it's always nice to have cozy beds outside in the sun anyway. Might as well keep them warm for the old dogs that are coming... You'll have to let us know when they get there!

Brown dog kisses,

You can never tell with senior dogs. My mom Clancy just spreads out on the wooden deck floor and snoozes in the bright sun, no matter how hot it is. She'll pant like a fox, and just lie there. Emmy does it too! If they had dog beds they'd just get 'em wet from panting so much. Go figure!

Maybe BLU is coming to visit. She's getting old!!

If our girl put a bed on our patio, it would be a yellow bed.

I'm with you Joe...I never lay on my bed. The hard floor is way more comfy. Besides, I'm still kind of a spring chicken.

Senior dogs? Does that mean they go to high school? I didn't know PetSmart even HAD high school classes.

We went over and said, "hey" to Stella.
Maybe I am coming to visit you. I think I am a geriatric dog. Maybe I'll send Clara. She is a geriatric cat and likes to lay on those pillow things. I would rather lay on the big old "fire monkey."

I'm going off to visit Stella now!

You're getting a visitor? That's soo cool.. And in the mean time you could benefit from the extra cushioning too, if you're feeling like it. I'm no where geriatric, but I like anything soft.

That's exactly what I said! Are you getting an old grandpa dog as a brother?!?!

Blogger Lillie Valentine said...

I love your beddies!! My elbows and knees get icky from the cement so you really should lay on those beds!! You don't have to be old to enjoy them.
I finally got caught up on reading some bloggies and I did my confessions. I've been away because my aunt had surgery in Rochester MN for a brain tumor and my mommy was gone for awhile..... Love ya! Lillie

Since be begining I understood those cushions were not for you! I wonder who is going to lay on them!

I was about to ask why we've never met this senior dog at your house. Curious.

I like hard surfaces, too. Must be a young dude thing.

Til next time,

I hope that senior doggie got to use one of those beds when he visited. Maybe I'm a senior doggie cause I love to sleep on soft things. Sometimes.

I was at the vet's this week for my senior care appointment and some lady asked Mom, "Aww! Your puppy is so cute! How old is she? Is she a year yet?" Mom said, "Thanks! My puppy is 13!" Ha roo roo roo! You ARE as young as you feel!
