My Senior Dog Ace

Ace of Spades

My senior dog Ace seems to be doing really well. I try to remember how lucky I am to have him still and wanted to share this picture from a recent walk.

Last winter I truly did not think he would be around for another holiday season. But here he is! Feeling better than he’s felt in more than a year!

Ace and I walk together every morning (right after I walk the wild-child puppy). It’s a nice way to start my day. Yesterday, we even ran for about 45 seconds. He loved it!

And while he’s not a fan of our puppy Remy, Ace seems to tolerate him OK.

I am no longer concerned about any aggression issues like we were having earlier. Ace will occasionally snarl or even bite Remy, but it’s always deserved and it’s always my responsibility to keep Remy in line.

How are your dogs doing?

My senior beagle Bodie, is behaving like a puppy again since he got a little brother, Wilson. So good to see new life in him. I've never seen him play with a toy before. Makes my heart smile.

what a sweet boy. my oldest is 15, has a little dementia, almost completely blind, deaf and now has cancer which she had surgery for 2 wks ago. still waiting to see if she needs chemo/radiation. vet does not want to remove the toe b/c it is one she balances on in front. it was a hard surgery b/c there is not much skin b/t the toes. there is also some new method of chemo which does not require anesthesia which is bad for my girl at her age and with her dementia. started some new supplements that have mushrooms that are supposed to be very good for dogs with cancer. i hope Ace is not too bothered by his younger sibling and enjoys having him around. i am so glad that Ace is healthy and doing well, may he live a very long life. after all they are our babies. Evie was not a fan of her 2 younger sisters either, Evie was an only child for 8 yrs. she was mad at me. very mad, first there was Tressa and the next yr was Harley. Harley irritates her , takes her treats, walks on her, etc. however, she just does not bother with them now. Ace needs to tell Remy who is boss. Evie was never aggressive to her younger sisters, Evie would just look at me. Evie has never been aggressive.

It's so good to hear that Ace is doing well! I also give my crazies separate walks, just because walking Hiccup by himself is so relaxing, and walking Link is so . . . not.

My dogs are doing great. I'm sitting on the sofa with Zoey sleeping on my nap, Rodrigo sleeping next to her, and Sydney at my feet. Scout crashed on a bed in the other room. I just realized that we have five dog beds and four dogs.

Love this update.
