Black on Tan - A lesson on getting old.

Marty sure is looking grey (or should I say white?) these days.  He is now completely blind in one eye now and we don't know how much he sees out of the other one.  Sometimes when you call him, he looks around sort of desperately like "where is she".  His hearing is as keen as ever.  Crackle the treat bag, open a door, whisper his name...he is right there.  We adopted him and 7 and have had 6 year with him.  He has been with us nearly as long as he wasn't.  He reminds me how one can gracefully get old.  How kind words, enough food to eat and plenty of love can keep an old guy going. 

Don't be afraid to adopt a Senior!!!  They have plenty of love to give!

I just want to squeeze and kiss Marty! We love seniors here, too. They are good for older folks, too.

Does that mean Marty is 13 years young? He is a sweetie for sure.
He does not need to see much as long as he hears your sweet words, and can smell those treats too!

Lots of licks,

Oh Marty, I love him! So sweet.
Punchy, I LOVE that pic of you with all 6 pugs on you (I almost didn't see Marty on the end, haha) - and Chloe's face kills me, I love that she it closest to your face. :)
Your new camper looks amazing!
