Until not too long ago, I was just the most wonderful companion to my dad – a quiet, loving, and affectionate lady who loved petting – and his very best friend. Then age-related things started catching up with me (there may be people in Green Valley who can identify with that!), and there were times when I just wanted to be left alone. The wonderful people here at TALGV are giving me a thorough “going over” to be sure there’s nothing amiss (at 13-plus, those things happen!), and if so, they’ll fix me right up good as new (well, almost – I guess we never get back to “new!”). So stay tuned for my progress – I’m aiming to be my old loving self soon!
