18 Months

 My girl has been on the DL this week. She and Bart took off after some coyotes and she returned with a hitch in her giddyup.  By bed time, she didn't want to get in the bed. Reminders that she is not the young pup she once was weigh heavy on my heart. Discovering a  small stash of Baby May pics hasn't helped!

But she's stubborn, this girl. I implored her to "use your steppie" to get out of bed. She backed up the length of the bed and flew off it like Super Dog taking flight! She certainly runs her own agenda!

We took a night off from hiking - Mabel was actually OK with staying home; I was perturbed; Bart was tortured! She was raring to go last night and yes, she took off after a coyote again...but changed her mind and stayed closer to Mom! Because she wanted to, you know.

Resting up is so hard to do. Things don't hurt when you are resting, right? THen you get up and BAM OW!

Sorry about the gimpy leg. Maybe leave that coyote chasing to Bart.

Sorry to hear Mabel Lou was a bit gimpy. Hope she gets back to form soon, but stays away from the coyotes.

Pip's legs give him lots of trouble, too. It's so sad to see ...he runs a few steps and pays for it later. Poor guy. Hope Mabel feels better soon.
