Oldies in training!

GuyGuy was having aches and pains as we all do at a certain age..he seems to be all better now and ready to train me..Coccolina going on 14 is doing well. Suffice to see who is panting..An added dimension to having dogs stay fit.

Ageing dogs.. attention and life.

A day, any day can become a real challenge..with older dogs. Guyguy had not been sleeping well as of recently..I was not hearing that “ahhhhhhhh” sound one has when you/he hits your/his pillow..he was tossing and turning..so I thought there was something not right. Osteopath came very quickly..and hopefully by Thursday he will feel better. No cardio training tomorrow for him. He is eating well and appears to have enjoyed the attention..as he always does. He is such a charmer.

I think I am much more aware of all this now, because I have aches and pains..too.

They deserve undivided attention.

Ploughing right along: cara Coccolina

My greatest achievement? Coccolina has now reached the 1500 mark of pedigrees she is in. She has been a MAJOR contributor to the type, character, health of about 1/3 of the Barbet world*. No small feat. She is the only Barbet in France to have reached the 5/6 level of the SCC selection grid. I am very lucky and blessed.
