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)

My Photo
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!

His Work Continues...

Cooper's made the local papers! Please see

The young reporter did a terrific job, and thanks go to the Kerrville Daily Times for helping us get the word out: first, that "old" doesn't mean "dead," and that it's never wise to underestimate someone else or what they can do. Thanks to the Kerrville Daily Times for keeping Cooper's mission alive -- sharing hope, optimism, faithfulness, and fervent commitment to living life as fully as possible, for as long as one's privileged to do so!
