Puppyboy at 17

Posted in blog post on July 2nd, 2013 by Merrill Markoe

Puppyboy is the first dog I have owned who made it to seventeen. That’s pretty rarified territory for a large dog. Naturally there are age related problems. That said, I didn’t realize that as an older dog, he would become so much more refined. Yes, its true that in his senescence, he now occasionally poops in the house. But I was unprepared for the fact that he was going to prefer to eat all his meals with a fork.

Here is Puppyboy doing what he did best in his youth.

    Just lost all my meditative state endorsements ’cause I used the zen word.

    Puppyboy is so tidy and contemplative. If I could get my old dogs to open their mouths for a fork, I would sure enough feed them this way.

    Congrats to Puppy Boy on his acceptance to Bryn Mawr. I know you’re as proud of him as we are of our 21 year old Senegal Parrot – P.T. He just graduated with honors from Blue Bird College. (I know, what a coincidence.)

    They grow up so fast, don’t they?
