Happy 8th Gotcha Day Wiggle!

Tomorrow is Wiggle's 8th Gotcha Day - 8 whole years since I first met this sad, itchy, skinny boy:

I had fostered quite a few dogs before Wiggle but none were in such bad physical shape as Wiggle when I went to collect him on 20th June 2008:

Soon though Wiggle started to get better and it didn't take long for me to fall in love with this special boy:

And now, 3 months away from his 14th birthday, I love him even more than I thought possible.  Old age has slowed Wiggle but he still has his cheeky ways and every time he looks at me, he melts my heart: 

Sofy loves him too and takes care of her big brother:

I doubt we will celebrate another Gotcha Day but for me, every day with Wiggle is special.

Wiggle - Day 2,924

Wiggle went for his last hydrotherapy session this week.  Sadly he finds it too tiring to swim much and although he is excited and happy to be there, his old body just doesn't have the energy any more.  It does make me sad as its another reminder that he is very much in retirement these days but to give him a treat, we stopped at Subway on the way home so he could have a grilled ham and cheese sub:

Lilly is still with us so today I took the girls to Virginia Water in Windsor Great Park to meet up with Mindy, Cato and Haggis.  All 4 Labbies were very happy to see each other again and wasted no time in having some fun:

Lilly and Sofy are best friends and enjoyed their day out:

Wiggle stayed home but did manage a little walk to the green at the end of our road.  He finds it tiring but he still wants to go out so we go at his pace.  Then he comes home and rests:
