In Praise of Elder Dogs

This blog is created in celebration of the elder dogs, of any breed, who've touched our hearts. You are invited to add your own reflections, or, if you wish, track the progress of your own elder dogs. ("Elder," BTW, is defined here as 10 years or more, except in breeds known for shorter lifespans, such as the Great Dane.) Send your stories and photos to me at branta(at)

Location: Hunt, Texas, United States

I've been privileged to share my life with five unforgettable Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. This blog was inspired by Cooper, my first, whose indominatable bright spirit triumphed over his limitations. Every day of his life, till the very end, he woke joyously, happy to greet the day. I would wish the same for all of us!

Gracious Acceptance: Kerry, 11

From a friend who does pet therapy: "Kerry (my pride and joy) turned 11 last December. She has developed quite a number of good-sized tumors and is on medication for bladder control. With this condition she is no longer involved with pet therapy as I know she cannot take the squeezing and pinching that everyone does to her when they see her but she would gladly accept the attention and look at me for support and intervention."
