Nanny is a rescue so they are not sure how old she is, approximately 9 or 10 years old. She was quite the feisty dog when they got her, and were so good not to send her back to the rescue organization. She still has a tendency to nip on certain, specific occasions. She is on trilosane as well. I did text my friend right away about this change I have noticed in Nanny, and she said, in so many words, this is now how she behaves, kind of sluggish and not excited to see them, either. And not to worry.
I did get her to chase the ball 3 or 4 times in the house late yesterday, so that was something. And she has started to snuggle with me in the early morning. Yes it is nice to remember Scooter happily rooting through the toy box at my friend's house. She has had a few dogs - the last had the big C and died at age 10 when Scooter was the same age as him...he was a beagle named Luke. They were true buds. It was cute. We brought them hiking together at a local park. I think Luke is the one who taught Scooter to "howl" only Scooter's came out much more high pitched, like an aroooo arooo! When he was especially happy or excited to see me.
