    Just one Pirate pic

    Trotting across the yard this morning--head up, tail out behind her. I don't think she can get her tail much higher than that due to her spinal athritis, but it's not tucked between her legs anymore!

    Not a blistering pace, but pretty darn good for a 12 year who was supposedly so crippled she needed to be put down less than two weeks ago!

    What a beautiful picture, it really captures her soft spirit. She is one blessed pup to be with you.

    Pirate has the wise and serene look of an old soul She is so graceful and dignified. How wonderful that she is with you to live out her best days with the respect and care she so deserves.

    The white of her coat against the ice-blue of the snow is just spectactular. A gorgeous picture of an even more beautiful dog! Thanks for sharing!

    I look at this picture -


    compared to this one -


    She has turned from being cautious, hesitant, afraid - to being confident, smiling, proud.

    What a difference a little love can make in a life

    Beautiful girl! What a wonderful turn of events!

    Have any of the pack picked her as a favourite pal? Tehya?

    Tehya is a little much for a senior! They do get along and Pirate has trotted beside her a bit. She spends most of her time with Bandit. Bandit likes to hang out in the shop and Pirate spends some time in there every day. Bandit is my cranky old man dog, even when he was a young dog, he was a cranky old man! He needs a break from the pack regularly. He lets Pirate sleep on an old jacket he had claimed as his own. She's not allowed near his glove collection yet, but he's ok with sharing his jacket! Bandit is a glove thief. He has a vast collection of gloves. He's partial to leather work gloves!
