Cindy Sue's 7th Gotcha Day Anniversary!

Seven years?!? Has it really been seven years? That means Cindy Sue is about 10 1/2 years old now...but I can tell ya, she's still goin' strong!

I LOVE Bones!

We took a ride last week...about 7 miles round trip on our quiet road...Colt, Rastus, Red Dog and Cindy Sue...and even though she's about half blind now with PRA (Progressive Retinal Atrophy)...she did an amazing job keeping up. I sure keep an extra eye on her though...her nose still gets her in trouble!

So...for a blast from the past...

Here's the link to her Gotcha Day blog post from 2009 (way back when I first started blogging!):

Cindy Sue's Gotcha Day Story!

We send a very big "thank you" to all Cindy Sue's friends for their support through the years...especially when the coyotes attacked her.

Cheers to many more years with you Cindy Sue! xoxox

awww - Happy Gotcha Day Cindy Sue!
Just gotta love them old dogs. The old guy's dog Razor is almost 14. And blind. Her nose gets her in trouble too.

I love the story of Cindy Sue and how you met. She struck gold when she found you guys! I wanted to ask how she was on your WW post the other day, but I was afraid it might be bad news. I am so happy to hear she is doing just fine. Happy Gotcha day Cindy Sue! The owl encounter is really scary. Don't even get me started with the coyote story, I get shivers just thinking about that one!

Give her an extra biscuit for us! Moon is nine and Copper ten this Spring and both still going strong, although the boy is now snoring loudly next to me!!!...:)JP

Paws up from Reba and Tess!
My Reba is 12 and a half now, not slowing down much except when she has to climb stairs.

Hellow Cindy Sue. I think a good life of exercise and good care sometimes do wonders for dogs, right?
I love seeing updates on her.

Morris says howdy.

Wishes for many more years to come to Cindy Sue. Just wondering if this formula is correct:10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after.
