Happy 12th Birthday Mickey

Time sure does fly, and not only when your having fun. I can’t believe that Mickey turns 12 years old today. A faithful and loving companion and friend. Here are a few pics from the day we went to pick him up and from this morning. We are both a little whiter.

They always say: “Don’t take the runt of the litter. They are the sickest and always a problem.” He was the last one available. When we went into the room, he was hiding in the corner behind the food tray. He got sick on the way home and has had his share of illnesses. A few years ago, he was diagnosed with indolent lymphoma. He goes to Tuft’s for checkups every three months and they can’t believe how well he’s doing. Mickey gets a blessing every night before we go to sleep. Just like me, he’s in God’s hands.

  2. Yuma was my first dog. She was a Golden, too. She died in 2011, when she was almost 14 years old.

    Thank you for this post. I remember you sharing the news about Mickey’s illness several years ago. I am very happy for you that Mickey is still around. Enjoy your time with him! We all tend to forget what we have. I wish him to have more years together with you!

    Give the old man a hug from me!
