Happy 12th Birthday Scout!

My best furry friend, Scout, is turning 12 on Tuesday.  In human years, she’d be 61.  This calculation is based off of the conversion done on the website: http://www.onlineconversion.com/dogyears.htm  The formula they use is: 10.5 dog years per human year for the first 2 years, then 4 dog years per human year for each year after.  They feel this is more accurate than the 1 human year is equal to 7 dog years.

My little “foofer” has been with me through everything.  She’s lost two of her best friends to cancer and dealt with raising two puppies.  Both of whom have thought her tail is a great chew toy.  I love her for putting up with being their moms.  She’s ran miles with me when I was just starting out and outpaced me every time.  She’s a lot slower now, but she’s lost 20 pounds over the last two years.  The vet said she looked great during her last checkup.  Other than a few chipped teeth, you wouldn’t know how old she is.   

Love you old girl!  I hope we have many more years together!
