Emerson the Dog is fifteen-and-a-half years old, but apparently it’s never too late for an old dog to learn new tricks. Here is his rendition of The Sphinx, although he doesn’t have the back legs quite right. We’ll have to work on that.
On our walks, he still drags me down the block to the corner, but by the time we have walked another two blocks, he is the one who is lagging behind.
He loves people and other dogs, and he almost never barks. We are so grateful to have had his companionship in retirement and now in ‘social distancing’. Yet, we know our remaining time with him is limited.
Every day is precious.
