A Zack Update

Every time I second guess this dog and think maybe it’s his time, he proves me wrong.  Eventually that won’t be the case.  I’m always glad to spend time with him, even though I worry and even though he is more work these days.  I think the vets were surprised he pulled through after he got sick this time last year. Then, in November he tore his ACL, and his ability to adapt and still get around truly amazed me.

The way I see it, for all the joy, happiness, and laughter our dogs give us through the years, for all the life lessons they teach us, we owe them so very much in the twilight of their lives.  We owe them patience, encouragement, and reassurance, a caring hand, fun trips, and above all, the same fiercely unwavering loyalty that they show us.

Some of his issues remind me of this, though we aren't quite to that point yet.
