Good medicine...

Sleet is 15 and a half years old; she has all the struggles dogs of that age have...stiff hips, cloudy eyes, limited strength and endurance ect. This mild winter hasn't been much fun for the sled dogs, but it has been a blessing for Sleet! Mild temperatures, sunshine, and Metacam are good medicine for old bones!So good that I was able to capture this beautiful sight this afternoon...The ancient one playing, actually playing with sweet Pacer being gentle and letting her win! Definately one of the prettiest sights I've seen in ages, even through my dirty front window!
(Mom, you should come visit soon, the windows are filthy!)

First off this mom should get some Metacam and see what it does for my arthritis.....and sorry TamaraLyn, can't do the windows yet altho you can be sure I would if it was warmer and you weren't so far away....
Good to see Sleet up and about enjoying a second childhood.

Sometimes, dogs just know how to show respect to their elders. A beautiful sight.
