“Rumor has it”

That’s what we would jokingly say when she would grab her toys and run with them almost 10 years ago when she was a puppy. Now, her huge Rottweiler head rests on the floor most of the time, especially when she is guarding the food bowl. She gets up slowly and walks with a slight limp from the arthritis.

Today, we found out she might have cancer. Tonight, we plan to take her swimming-one of her favorite activities. In the water, her stumpy tail wagging, she moves gracefully and easily. Her old legs don’t betray her there.
