"My Old Dog"



This is our dog Sox and she is an old dog. She may look young in the photo but she is really an old dog. She is a very beautiful dog, and gentle with children. She is my guard dog and she knows that’s her job when my husband is out of town. German Shepard’s don’t age well. She has bad joints and has trouble walking and climbing stairs, she will grunt and grown while sleeping and when she goes to get up from her bed. She is really a wonderful dog, old or not!

German Shepherds are really good guard dogs. I am sorry to hear your dog is suffering with her age. I guess we all will eventually. ;-)

She looks happy. She is a beautiful dog. I hear swimming is good for the joints and stuff. Have you tried that?

Thanks for stopping by.

Sox is beautiful. My mom had a German Shepherd called Duke, bless his soul. His joints werent so good either when he got older.. but he did his best right until the very end.

Here's wishing Sox a few more years yet :)
