10/15/18 Otis turned 15! 15! I know right?!
We got Otis when he was 6 weeks old and he is now 15!
We celebrated his golden birthday (because he is 15 and the day of his birthday is the 15th) by going to work and letting him sleep at home.
That night he went for a ride and got a pup cup from Dairy Queen. He got to wear a party hat (a real one and not a muzzle – vet calls them party hats). He snuggled with me and we just loved on him even more. He slept in the middle of the bed on a fuzzy blanket. He also got a new food and water dish. He seemed super excited about it. We also built a fence around our backyard and I am calling that part of his gift too (even though it has been more of a gift to me and Andy).
He is showing his age. His eye sight is going and his hearing is selective, but going too. His little face is gray and he is a tad skinnier now than he was. He has moments of being a puppy when he tries to chase a ball in his new fence, but sometimes he just can’t see or hear the ball.
Happy birthday to my sweet little puppy. Ok my old man dog. He drives me crazy sometimes, but he has been such a support through the difficult parts of life and comfort when I have been home alone. I don’t know how many more years we get with him, but we will cherish each and every one.
