I think little RuRu is getting old! Her obvious gray beard and hairs throughout her coat are a tell tale sign – but her energy just seems to be waning these days. After ChopChop and CapCap left (last Sunday), Ruby was wiped out for days! and even now, she seems just a bit off.
I have shortened her twice daily walks, to help with fatigue. On our afternoon walk today, we literally only walked past 3 houses before she was laying on the grass, her signal that she is tired and needs a break. 3 houses! That is not very far at all. I managed to get her to continue, but she was really panting and I could tell she just wanted to go home.
I wonder if she knows that she still has at least 10 good years ahead of her! She is the best dog ever – I can’t imagine life without her. Helps that she is super cute, too!
