July 30, 2012

White Dog said, "Maybe it is the spirit of the Olympic Games filling her heart." She was referring to Nuka, Another White Dog, our often clumsy, mincy tiptoe walking 11-year-old girl who fights the stiffness of old age in her back legs.

Suddenly, AWD is springing up from her nap position and jumping over the other sleeping pups. She propels herself out of the crate in a broad jump that carries her into nearly the middle of the room.

Nuka is bounding to grab her jerky treats over the backs of those in the White Dog Army who are sitting in front of her, and then gracefully twists before landing on anyone to set all four feet gently on the carpet. She then attacks her treat as though her athletics were nothing.

Tonight when Steve came home. Nuka was trapped at the back of the welcoming pack. Instead of moving to the side awaiting a better opportunity, like Puff does, or running ahead to the office where Steve goes to change into home clothes (like White Dog does), Nuka stood on her hind legs and danced between the bodies like a bicyclist in a traffic jam. We all were stunned into smiling silence as Steve reached down to give her a big hug.

The other night on the bedtime walk, AWD was paired up with Oso. She catapulted herself off of the curb when Steve gave the "OK to cross" signal. Because our streets are also designed to carry rain water runoff in a network down to the river, the curbs are rather tall. But she was fine. Not so much her shorter, chunkier brother who tried to copy her technique and ended up falling and cutting his leg in his attempt.

Steve just shakes his head in wonder and says, "I hope I am as spritely when I am 69!"

Never underestimate the power of the seniors:) Phantom never ceases to amaze us with his bubbly youthful spirit on those rare occasions when he thinks he is a young pup again. You rock, Nuka. Just be careful:)

Woos - Phantom, Thunder, Ciara, and Lightning

That mad me smile and I can so see that happening!

That was some really great narration ... we could see those wonderful scenes playing out in our minds! Way to go, Nuka. :)

You should stop taking it immediately and contact your doctor as soon as possible. If you experience seizures after starting Atarax, it may indicate that you are having a serious allergic reaction to the drug. [url=http://www.autumnridgecabins.com/]atarax without prescription[/url] If Atarax doesnпїЅt cure your allergic reaction symptoms and your skin conditions become worse, you should seek medical help immediately as you may be having an allergic reaction to the drug in addition to your existing condition. You should obviously talk with your doctor before taking Atarax, as there are some side effects that you should be aware of.
