Thirteen Years Old

 Zephyr turned thirteen last week! How truly blessed I have been to share all his years with him. I took these two photos this week with the fresh snow. I don't think he looks his age here. Some days he does, but usually he still bounces along with a smile :)

Looking for Warmer Days

I am not a winter person. I still get out with the dogs, but I really do not enjoy it most days. However earlier in the week we had temps just below zero instead of the -20 and a wind chill on top of that. In fact we had 2 days in a row that were this "warm". Off to the lake to run on the beach. Perfect for Zephyr who likes the flatter places to run, when there is ice and snow, now that his back end is weakening somewhat. Of course I had to insist he stay on shore and off the ice flows...he seems not to worry about his aging body as I do. The steep and many hills are reserved for better footing.
I find it peaceful to walk along the empty shore. Few people go there this time of year. The slate grey skies would welcome some sun no doubt....I know I would. These are happy walks. Peaceful walks. Sigur Ros type of walks! Think I'll go there again tomorrow!

Wisdom

There is nothing like the grace and wisdom of an older dog.
