My Furry Child is 12 Today

My older beagle turned 12 today.  It is getting hard to remember what it was like when he had energy and didn't sleep 23 1/2  hours out of every day. I did manage to get him motivated to do a trick or two.
Okay, so maybe only one trick on his birthday - begging, which is at the top of his list for things he likes to do.

This was his look when I told him he had to wear that birthday hat - not at all thrilled.

He then relented and agreed to the hat.

 
And this was his reward - his Kong stuffed with peanut butter and kibble. Here's hoping for a another good year ahead for my boy, Freckles....

He's such a pretty pup with his party hat! :-) It's hard to see them age, isn't it? I'm hoping you still have a few marvelous years with Freckles.
