It is my turn again today!!!
Today I enter my 12th year. I was born in a barn near Aldrich Minnesota, I had lots of brothers and a sister and a great place to play and little kids to play with. I grew and grew. Then Far Side and Far Guy came to visit all the puppies…I walked up to Far Guy, he picked me up and didn’t put me back down.
I had to pose for the traditional birthday photo. She got lots of photos with my eyes closed…I am not an easy model.
This year she decided that I needed to lay in front of the Euonymus bush…it might be the prettiest spot in the yard to show me off…at least that is what she said.
And here I am at my black and white best.
12 years old is the average life span of a Border Collie…I made it! I have some back leg and hip problems…sometimes my old legs just don’t want to go up or down the stairs. I take a medication and an aspirin. I have a vest with a handle that I can wear and someone will help me up and down the stairs.
I still play ball some days…some days not so much. I have a nice bed to sleep on, sometimes I sleep there and sometimes not. Most days I get to go for a ride!
Rides and treats are my favorite things…Happy Birthday to Me!
