She is almost 15 years old, my dog. But that doesn't mean she doesn't have ambitions. She's a hunter, not a fighter.
There is something in the lavender bush and it must be stopped.
She spent about an hour out there today with her head in the bush. I left for 3 hours to go to a meeting, and when I came back? She ran right outside and has been there ever since.
The bush is next to the house. When she gets excited, her tail wags, and I can hear her thumping against the house.
She's slowing down a little, I can tell. She is deaf and has a tremor in a back leg when she sleeps. She groans when she lays down and one of her back legs is a little stiff and weak.
But the lure of the bush draws her ever onward. She gets pollen in her nose and sneezes big, but still, she fights on.
