Xena at the Inlet

My little Xena is not doing well at all.  Over the past couple of months we have had to make our morning walks shorter and shorter, but she still enjoys going to the inlet.  To make it easier for her, we drive down the street to the edge of the woods.  This way, she can still do the funnest part of the walk -- the woods and the inlet.

Here she is wading in a great big mud puddle.   Such fun for her.

Now she takes a rest and enjoys the scenery.

And the walkie wouldn't be complete without a few sips from the puddle.

Xena has not been eating very much and she still gets sick at least once a day.  We took her to a new vet who we liked very much, even though her prognosis was grim.  We are just trying to keep Xena comfortable and as happy as possible.

She's such a great dog. So sorry. :-(

Good vibes heading your direction.

(as an aside, my verification word was 'splat'. How appropriate with the puddle pictures above.:-) )

I'm sorry Vicki. It's really hard when they get older and things start to slow down, but you are doing the right thing. Lots of love & hugs to you and thanks for sharing Xena's beautiful pics. ♥
