Happy Birthday, Matilda and Cow!

This spring, Matilda and Cow turned 9 years old.

This is a definitive time when both dogs are, without a doubt, seniors.

Another reason this age is a turning point to me: my childhood dog passed away at age 10 of brain cancer, and by his ninth birthday, he was starting to show symptoms of neurological issues as well as slowing down due to arthritis.

As we know, the larger the dog, the faster they age. My old dog was between Matilda and Cow’s sizes, though neither of my girls have showed signs of arthritis so far.

What’s more, recent events have had them acting like puppies – to my absolute delight.
