Simply The Best
Did I say before I have the coolest little dog ever?!? I guess every new dog makes me appreciate my older dogs even more... So the older they are and the more younger dogs I have, the more I appreciate them 🙂 I guess I'll never again have a dog with La's working ethics, a dog who would do ANYTHING for a piece of kibble, a dog who is never bored, tired, unfocused, afraid, unsure, lacking confidence or courage. She is always up for anything - even at 13,5 years and even when undergoing chemo treatment and fighting a very nasty cancer!
We have been doing many tricks lately as she is too fat to do much of agility at the moment, but I still want her to get her turn when others get to do agility. It sure reminds me of what a super star trick dog she is. She is not so much of a thinker, but she certainly is a doer! And she can do it all! - We'll have to make a video of her new tricks! Since we were talking about how to clicker train a deaf dog before - I ended up simply delivering food as quickly as possible after desired behaviour. I guess that after 13 years of learning tricks, she can guess just fine what is the reward for and is doing just as great also without hearing! Such a cool little dog! I sure was extremely wise back in 2001 to name her Simply The Best! 🙂
She sure changed my perspective on chemo treatment and has absolutely no problems anymore, not even after chemo! The only remaining sign is no hair on her face, but she is getting the pigment back now and got some pretty merly spots on the skin now.
Looks like she just needs to scare me to death every 6,5 years - first with stomach perforation at 6,5 years and 6,5 years later with nasal tumor. So let's see what she is up to in another 6,5 years! 🙂 (- And yes, I know that the metastasis can show up any time, but she sure gives me plenty of reasons to be optimistic!)
Thank you for posting updates on La, even though they alwas make me cry. She sure is an amazing dog!! You are both so lucky to have eachother! <3
For the first time in my life I can see La being “fat” .. but camera adds 5 kilos, so it can´t be that serious 😀
#GoLa (hashtags are powerful 😀 :D)
I think it’s 1st time ever I have a fat dog in a 1st place!!! But I think she likes it 🙂
Wooow! Yay for little (fat :D) La! I think she looks fantastic. Please do post a video of the new tricks, I love all your trick videos, and I am curious to see which would be the tricks that La didn’t know before 🙂
She has the most beautiful smile which makes her look so much younger! Long Live La 🙂
Yes, camera loves La! -- Even when hairless! 🙂
Simply the BEST!!!! Wish I could give her a hug! So many fans she certainly has 😀 How many dogs can say she draws people to her country! You did know I came to Slovenia to see her didn’t you 😉
Wow La- you are amazing!!! And nothing beats that smile of hers!
Love the photos of To as well!!!
That’s great news! She is a fighter and you did name her appropriately! She IS Simply The Best! Her smile is contagious! Keep on learning, fighting and inspiring La!!!
Such a beautiful, beautiful smile! 🙂
So glad she is doing well, it’s wonderful to see.
