jenn took some pics of me and the grandkids last weekend..the kids are so cute but how did I end up so old, fat and worn out looking? a hundred years ago, I used to look pretty darn cute too!
I look at the old worn out animals around here and they are still heart stopping cute and it pisses me off that they age much more gracefully gently then I do. hopefully I am at the inbetweener stage between the beauty of ancient and youth.
now I know why women dye their hair, go to the gym and wear makeup...so at this age they don't look like I do.
oh well.... maybe I can get away with blaming all of this on rescue.
it was a busy vet day here yesterday, my nursing friend robin came and took three pages of notes from the vet. lots of new med additions, sue will get the meds ready for me to pick up from the clinic and I will sort thru the notes over the next couple of days to get us set up to make sure everyone gets what they are supposed to get.
I used to be able to absorb everything and keep it all in my head, not so much anymore. pretty sure my brain is as worn and ratty as everything else.
I wonder if one day when I am finally as messed up as most of these guys..if I will be as valued as much as I value them. it might have been smarter to start a rescue for aging humans instead. I could have gone there when I needed them.
you know what the differences between aging dogs and aging humans is tho? dogs know how to work it.
bo sits next to my chair in the morning, offering to shake a paw while he licks my elbow. how freaking cute is that??? but if I tried that trick with someone, they'd stick me in a straight jacket in 10 seconds flat!
god gave aging animals the ability to melt human hearts...sure some human hearts are stone cold and oblivious to melting but not all of ours are.
if given the choice between being a much loved ancient human or a very beloved ancient dog..i would pick being the dog. now I would never pick being an unloved ancient dog cuz I have seen how much that totally sucks..but a loved one would be pretty good.
honestly, what the hell is wrong with me this morning? I better quit blogging utter bullshit and go mop a floor...far more useful.
Lol, great post Carol. Yes blame it on menaopause, I have gained 5 pounds a year since menopause. We certainly don't age as well as the critters :-)
