    Despite lymphoma and bone-on-bone arthritis, Bitsy Boodle is still in the game! Our vet says, "That dog should have been dead three years ago." Bitsy's answer: "Not so fast, Buster!" Here she is insisting on a game of ball. Never, ever give up!!

    Same here, a smile and tears - they just keep doing what they love for as long as they have breath - my Brooke was the same. SO GLAD Bitsy has beat all the odds. She is all heart. :hugs

    Oh what a dear sweet girl. She's still so bright and happy. You know, I think watching our seniors enjoying life gives me more pleasure than watching puppies (or even kittens and that takes a lot!). It's heart-warming, they are are so in the moment.

    Is her right elbow worse - she seemed to have trouble turning back.

    I agree wholeheartedly Caro!
    Seniors are the absolute best!!!

    OMG, Chris, that video is just precious! I just want to hug and kiss her! The fact that she is happy to play ball shows her spirit!

    Thanks for sharing this inspirational video of sweet Bitsy teaching us about perseverance.

    Give her a hug and kiss!

    Apologize for the typo Chris... not enough coffee or a senior moment... not sure which yet!

    I always cheer inside when I get Gavin to bark!
    Full circle because when he was younger it was all about getting him to be quiet :)
