Dukey and me

We have a dog. He is a rottweiler. His name is Duke. He's getting quite old. 13 years old he is! His back legs just don't work like they used to. Every morning when hubby is working-it's my job to get him out to do his business.
Hubby built him a ramp to our deck-a year or two back. Just look at that ice at the bottom. This morning he fell twice and I fell once. I set him back on his feet twice and myself once. Neither one of us suffered broken bones-at least I don't think we did.

Oh silly doggie-why are you at the basement door? You know you can't do steps anymore! Now go get to your ramp!

Oh will you hurry up and quit taking pictures, Mommy? I need a little boost to get up this ramp. (Or as my husband says-Dukey just needs some moral support.)

Mmmmm-snow tastes good!☺

Dang-it's hard getting old-but we've all got to do it!

Advice for the day-Don't you eat that yellow snow!

I love a good dog story and I gave up eating snow (yellow and white) a long time ago (haha). Sounds like you'd do anything for you pooch. Stay warm.

Oh, and one more thing....I read your comment on my blog about that casserole dish -- don't you just love those vintage Pyrex or Fireking dishes. Oh my gosh -- my heart beats a little faster when I come across one. I'm serious!

I'm jealous -- mine cost about $7. You got a great bargain.

I can't believe he needs a ramp now! Poor Dukey.
I think Pistol's eye sight is going - he can't spot the food particles on the floor like he used to be able to do.

Isn't it sad to see our lovely dogs get old? I miss my Piper soooo much. She was the most awesome friend for 15 years. It is hard to see them struggle. I feel for you, Holly. He still looks so sweet and adorable. He's lucky to have such a loving Mommy!!!
