Just because she's old Cheyenne hasn't changed much. She's stubborn, independent, solitary and she still likes to see the world. I walked to the car and she struggled to her feet and pottered to her place at the back door.
Sometimes Labradors want a walk. So I took her to Key West and after I'd finished the morning's business we went for a walk on Wiliam Street.
She didn't walk one block before she needed a rest, but she is as curious as ever. Her scabby skin is healing slowly after an intense course of antibiotics, she is lumpy with tumors but her eyes sparkle and she is still keen to sniff everything.
An old Captain Outrageous bike pressed into daily duty didn't interest her but she paused while I took a picture. Old habits don't change, she's been stopping for my picture taking since December 2009. She has always been patient with me.
It's my turn to be patient with her while she pauses to catch her breath.
A bit further on another pause on the other side of the Old Harris School listed I believe for a preposterous $17,000,000. It's an empty shell unused for years. Recently tented for termites.
Carsten Lane looking lovely as always in the sun. My dog not looking bad at all.
Long may she last.
