Senior Dog Month: What's so great about Cleo?
What's so great about Cleo?
This Shepherd-Husky dog is a force of nature. From day one, she demanded that we participate in her life, and in return, seven years on, she etched herself into ours. As a senior dog Cleo is slowing down, but her personality remains at full tilt.
Some people think old dogs are boring, but that isn't true. I suspect the person saying or thinking this thought is the one who is boring. How can you be bored with a dog who can cat-nap one minute, then at the slightest sound outside, give a full-throated guard dog bark?
What's so great about Cleo? She doesn't hesitate to show joy. Her display of joy can be a happy face or a full wallop from her paw. She doesn't ask for much: the occasional cuddle; a place to do her business; time to smell the neighborhood; food; and a soft bed. In my book, this makes Cleo pretty great.
