Day 10 Mans Best Friend

Today's blog is a bit of a sad one, for I fear the blog may outlive the subject.

Sully is our dog, she is a Boxer / Border Collie (Boxlie) cross and is 10 and a bit years old. I always joke that she was unfortunate in the fact that she got the brains of a Boxer and the energy of the Collie, meaning that she is daft as a brush and never ever stops!

Unfortunately for Sully she is no longer the puppy that she still thinks she is, and she always tries to do too much when she is out and about, this morning for example she went sprinting off up the beach to try and say hello to another dog, but half way there pulled up as she suffers with cramp in her back legs.

She is really starting to show her age with grey flecks appearing in her face fur, and generally sleeping quite a lot, in fact as I write this she is snoring away behind the sofa, either that or there is a train going by, I'm pretty sure its the dog though.

Sully is the most loving dog I have ever met and she loves nothing more than snuggling up to you and giving you the odd sly lick, okay there is nothing sly about it, she is a licking machine. When we first went to view her as a puppy she was only just walking and plodded across to Christine and licked her, and that was her chosen.

It will be a very sad day when she is no longer with us as she has been with Christine and I throughout our married life, but it is something that we are having to come to terms with as she gets older, Boxers on average only live 10 to 12 years and Collies are a little hardier living between 9 and 17 years. So lets hope she has plenty of that Collie spirit left in her yet.

With further ado, here is today's picture (taken just before she pelted off up the beach)

Have a good day folks
