Barney’s birthday is in less than a month. I can’t believe he’s going to be 12. Twelve is the age that dogs like him sometimes don’t get to. I’m part of a labradoodle rescue group and many an owner has lost their doodle before age 12.

Luckily for me, Barney still seems to be going strong. Yes, he’s still suffering from arthritis a bit. It’s hard seeing him try to lay down as you can see how stiff he is. But he rarely needs his medications as the supplements that he’s on are working well enough that he can walk around and even play without any problems.

Sometimes, you look at him or he looks at you and you can see that the puppy is still inside. The other day, I got one of those looks. It was pure happiness that he was going on a walk.  It still makes me smile.
