Wiggle - Day 2,350

After a misty start to our day, this afternoon we got our walk in before the sun was setting.

Wiggle did plenty of sniffing:

And pottered about off-lead:

Sofy was on her best behaviour, sitting nicely in case there were any treats coming her way:

Stopping at the bench:

This evening Wiggle and Sofy were very helpful, testing the Gingerbread Men that I made.  They didn't complain!

Now though, time to relax:

Happy Thanksgiving!

For a while now I have been noticing that Wiggle is showing his age and slowing down.  Although this time of year gives us less opportunities for long walks without getting cold, wet or both, Wiggle has been less active.

He has more grey on his face and paws and his eyes are starting to get cloudy and his joints are more stiff but despite old age, Wiggle still loves his cuddles and playing with his toys and enjoys coming to work with me every fortnight to then do our Pets As Therapy visits in the evening.

I am truly thankful for the time Wiggle has been with me, for all the fun things we've done together and the friends we have made.  He still loves to curl up on the sofa with me and shows his cheeky side, giving me a questioning look if he thinks he is due a treat.

Of course I'm hoping that Wiggle is here with me for a long time yet as he is such a special, affectionate, easy going boy and I love him more than words can say but for now, I'm thankful for each and every day with Wiggle.

Wiggle - Day 2,336

Unintentionally, its been a while since we blogged.  I've been busy with work stuff and Wiggle has been slowing down a fair bit.

He still enjoys coming to work with me every other Wednesday when we do our PAT visit in the evening.

While in the office, Wiggle likes to lay close to me:

From next to my desk he can watch what Lilly is up to:

Wiggle has a blanket for resting so Lilly likes to come and sit with us:

And on a chilly day, Wiggle enjoys warming up next to the FireWIN in Reception:

Wiggle hasn't been as bouncy on our walks so gets more time offlead:

Apparently there are interesting smells in the fallen leaves!
