An Old Dog Gets Older

Stella is 12 years old today. When she was 18 months old, her nickname was "Frankenstella" because she was such a little monster. These days, with the grey face and the less bendy hips and knees and the lumpy spine showing through her fur, we call her "Stellasaurus".
Age hasn't really diminished Stella; she's in pretty good health for a 12-year-old pure bred. All age has done is mellowed her. But not her appetite, of course; even with her gum problems which we see now prevent her from actually chewing food -- as if she ever did -- she remains as ever food-oriented.
Thereby earning her the nickname "Guts".
And truthfully, since I started adding a teaspoon of coconut oil to her breakfast in January, Stella seems to be doing better than she was a year ago.
Happy Birthday, Guts. Enjoy your cake.
