Happy Birthday Willy

Willy turned 10 last Saturday! How did that happen? We now have two pugs in the double digit club, and another will be joining by the end of the year.

I'm just not good with this whole aging's so hard to admit that some of my pugs are slowing down. I really struggle with what's best for them. We're so active and our pugs have always been a part of that, and it's hard to watch them slow down on walks, but even harder to leave them home. Right now, I try to do a mix of hikes, most days are shorter, but we stop once in a while so the "mature" members of the pack can rest a bit, and the youngsters can play and chase toys for a while. A couple of times a week I do a long hike with just Kittie, (who's keeping up pretty good, but even she's slowing down a little) Abby & Indy. Rudy and willy usually come along for a shorter walk with one of my slower clients those days.

Happy Birthday Willy. You still look like you've "got it".

Happy Birthday to Willy. It is a good year for Willy's to turn ten.I just did it myself. Mom says she can totally relate to you, as both my sister and I are double digit pugs. Then there is young Sluggo who is a wee four. Last year Mom got a doggy stroller for Britte because of her arthritis. I jumped in a couple of times this week myself,as it seems to be taking me a little longer to recover from activity these days. I told her, it's not me, it's her. Hehehe.
