A faithful companion

I don’t really notice, on a day to day basis, subtle changes in Lila’s appearance or behavior but when I see pictures of her (like the one above taken in July 2018) and really observe her as she goes about the day, I can tell she is slowing down. Aren’t we all?

Lila is a mixed breed, we think Labrador and either Sharpei or Chow-Chow. She has that black tongue and early in her life, before she adopted us, her ears were cropped. We are sure there might have been some punishment because she remains (even after 9 years with us) an anxious creature, jumping away from anything or anyone that is not familiar to her. We love her dearly and today I am filled with tenderness as I watch her come over to plop on my feet!
