This morning The Boys are just wound up as heck. They have been tumbling and wrestling at an insane pace! They have actually been running at this pace for several days, and China has been getting into the fray with them on a regular basis. However, every time I've gone for the camera, they stop before I get back. Or if the camera is handy, they hear me turn it on and stop to investigate what I'm doing. But this morning .... ah, this morning, I got 'em!!
China has been quite, uhmm, vocal about the boys' activities. If they get carried away and run her over while playing, she jumps up and loudly tells them what she thinks of that. If they are playing, she doesn't watch as much nowadays. Like this morning, she jumps right in with all four feet. And bossy!!! That girl tells them she is a force to be reckoned with!! Sassy little thing!
This all amazes me because, if you recall, it was unlikely that she would be alive this long. This little trooper doesn't know anything is wrong with her. She still trots along as if she were a puppy. She still sits up on her back feet and begs, with front paws waving, for a treat. (I'll try to get a video of that, but it's hard to do the camera and hold the treat, too.) She still wants to go for walks and car rides, although both exhaust her. What an amazing little treasure she is!
I see, too, many signs of her failing health, but I'm delighted that she is still enjoying life and not just placidly, but with a lot of vigor and a major chunk of zest mixed in!!
