A week ago, I went to the Vet for my three month follow up pictures.  My lungs were clear but there was a spot that the vet wanted to get looked at so I had to go back in and take pictures from other angles and they were sent off to a radiologist to evaluate.   According to the pro, the questionable spot around my heart is just normal aging.  They keep trying to tell me that I’m a senior but I just don’t see it.

So there has not been cake yet.  I don’t know what the humans are waiting for!  But my walks have increased so I’m happy about that.  Yesterday, I walked .8 of a mile.  I’ve learned to walk on the grass instead of on the pavement and it makes it much easier on me.  We have a system to make the walks work better.  I am on a 16 foot leash.  I run up ahead and wait.  Cookie and the human pass me and when they get to the end of the leash, I run up ahead and pass them.  We tend to go mailbox to mailbox.  Some neighbors also allow me to investigate their entire lawn.

I still prefer going to the park.  Last week, I tried to get the local girls softball team to pet me.  One girl did but not the entire team.   🙁 Not sure what park we’re going to today but I am going to have to get a bit more pushy about needing smooches .

    Love how you’re training your human and Cookie to walk with you! Good job! Stamina isn’t quite the same sometimes when you have to put out so much energy on three legs! But taking short breaks is clearly the solution!
    Yeah, a lot of tmes “things” show up on xrays as dogs……..shhhhhhhhh…..a.g.e.
