Every moment is a gift...

작년

This is not really new to us right? But do you take the time to cherish these moments?

I take a little time every day to reflect on these moments, the little things, the good and the bad, the illusion of control and the flow of life.

The special moment yesterday to me was Otto showing that he's having a good day!

Otto is almost 19 years old and in the last year his age really showed.

Especially in the last few months he shows signs dementia, his eyesight became worse and he has an abscess on his lower back that we cannot get removed because the needed narcosis for this procedure is probably to much for him. So he's treated with antibiotics and pain killers.

He doesn't seem to be in pain though and he's up on his legs every day even for the walks we take him and his companion Emi.

He surely enjoys all the extra cuddles he's demanding lately.

On some days he needs a little support so I bought something like a harness that supports him a little on our walks.

The little guy is laying on my lap for a nap as I write this.

Cheers!

I am always amazed at how animals and kids handle life. They are both so alike in their unwavering positivity and resilience despite the fact that they may not be feeling their best!

I didn't know that you're a dog lover @doifeellucky

Not to mention that I didn't know dogs can live that long. 19 years? How much would that be in "human years"? Surely over 100.

Yours, Piotr

Hello Piotr,

that'll be 133 in "doggo years". Usually 7 * human years. And yep, always been a dog guy. Grew up with dogs.

We used to have 4 Jrt (Otto's parents, behind him his Dad "Hans", to his right his Mother "Anne" and his sister Momo to his left from the first litter, Otto is from the second litter).

Cheers!
