Abby day, 2012

Today marks the 5th year of having Abby in our family! She is now about 11 or 12, as believed by our previous vet, Dr Campbell (may he rest in peace.) From the first day in our household, she was very attached to me, and is still very much my girl. Everyone who meets our little pack instantly guesses correctly that Abby is the "sweetheart" of the family. She's been slowing down a bit in the last few months, her hind legs seem to be a bit stiff. Abby loves our new boat! She must have known boats before, with her previous owner. She is so calm, and just settles down in a comfy place, every now and then tipping her head back to catch a whiff of the lake air. She is quite a lady, our Abby! She is still the first one in the pool for a swim, and she even swims like a lady. Just a couple of calm, leisurely laps about the pool (drinking all the way) and then she's happy and gets out to be dried with a soft towel. I'm convinced the dry off snuggle is her favourite part of the whole swimming process. Some pictures of M'Lady:

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
