Can you believe it? When I tell people she is that old most people say they didn't know a dog could live that old.
It was 10 years ago today that I brought her home from the Dartmouth SPCA and we began our love affair with each other.
I have waxed poetic over her so many times over the years that it is completely pathetic - she knows that she has me completely under her spell and I let her do whatever she wants - sometimes to mine and the publics and other dogs detriment - but I just can't help myself - there is no other dog on this planet like her.
She knows how to speak english, and a lot of times she`s been the only thing that's kept me alive - so I am completely at her whim.
The only thing I could wish for is that she would live for another 10 years.
If it were up to Buttercup - she would.
A few years ago I made a photo album of photos I'd taken of her if you want to check that out - it's at http://joansinden.ca/ Buttercup back in her prime.
