Sage is still with us. The photo above is his favorite photo. It shows him in "full play" mode. He loves to run and play with toys, balls, sticks, whatever he can find. Sage has a couple more days with us. He is waiting till this weekend when he will meet with a couple that is flying in from Chicago to see him. He is just hanging out, enjoying his vacation before he has to go to a new home and go to work making people happy. He says that it just proves that you can look far and wide, but you will have to go a long ways to find a Golden as nice as Sage.
Meanwhile, I went in to the vet today to get a picture of my heart. I have sub-aortic stenocis, which they tell me means that I have a special heart. They made me lie down on a raised bed, then while everyone petted me and made over me, they put some jelly stuff on my tummy and looked at my heart with this stick thing. I was given lots of treats. He increased my Atenolol dosage. He said that I need to take it easy, I can't run and play too hard. My humans chuckled, they decided long ago that I should enjoy life and run and play as much as I want. Its my life and I want to enjoy as much as I can for as long as it lasts. So far, so good!
In celebration of one more year of life, one year more than what they predicted, I am hosting a party on the 4th of July. Its a "Get your Golden Wet" party. The swimming pool will have a dozen Golden's and their owners, all swimming together. Guests are asked to bring a dry golden to the party, and you can take a wet one home.
