Tips To Growing Old Gracefully

When mommy and daddy brought me to my forever home, I was already 5 years old. They never knew my real birthday and my age was an estimate. Mommy says I should be over 11 years old now, which for a big doggy like me, is pretty old.

For those of you who have traveled this journey with me, I want to reassure you I am still doing well. My back leggies get tired quickly, but I am still eager to do a little walk every day, play tug and do zoomies in the lair (sometimes I fall down). Most of the time I can make it out behind the lair to do my thing, but when I have an accident, daddy is more patient with me. The treats I get every morning and night have made me feel better. So mommy thought it might be a good idea to share some tips on how I am aging gracefully.
So here goes...

Get a massage often

Always sit like a lady

Stay curious

Get plenty of rest
and more rest

Have a sip of wine on occasion

Play daily

 Clean your teeth as much as you can

 Eat your vegitables

Drink plenty of water

Most importantly... Take a walk every day

That was a very interesting and important post. You are, indeed, a grand old lady. I can't believe you are 11 years old. Wow! I do most of those things, but sitting properly is hard and I tend to splay my leggies.

I, too, have trouble with the whole up and down stuff, but I manage. You take good care of yourself.

Mommy says age is an honor bestowed upon the wise. Gray hair (or gray muzzles) should be used to distinguish the experienced and mature from the young and foolish. Apparently I am in the latter category. :/

What an excellent set of pointers, Princess Sasha! All right on target and very useful. Mazel tov on attaining 11 years. Mama had a couple of female Danes who made it to 13 and we will keep our paws crossed that you do even better!
