    My puppy girl is a little old lady now - she turned 13 years old this week.

    Because of Tully's IBD she just had a cake made from roast mashed-potato, with her vet dog food in the centre. But she's on steroids so basically any food looks good to Tully! And she ate the whole lot without sharing with her sisters. Otherwise it was a quiet day with just a little play with her fave toy.

    We've some rough months and she is really showing her age. She keeps getting very bad flare ups of her IBD. The steroids are causing fur loss and her eyes look funny. Worst thing is she is super hungry and raiding bins and table. And now she is limping heavily, I think from a failed table raid.

    But she's still my pretty baby, and she's still happy.

    Happy belated birthday to Tully, a wonderful girl chock full of character and charm. I know her illness has made many challenges for you and her, Caro. I hope she has many more happy years to come.
