Earlier this morning I took Tinkerbell out with me up into the hills. It was the first time I had taken her out that far in years. She used to go everywhere with me between 2009 and 2012 back when she was younger and she was the only dog I had. Since I adopted the other five dogs and started my reservoir project, I haven't taken her out up into the hills like I used to. She's now over seven years old and has had a few health problems, recently having had hip surgery and a tumor removed.

I took her out with me today for her own benefit and for mine; I need to start allocating more time to her when I can because I get the feeling she might not have too many years left. I don't want to end up regretting not having spent more time with her when she finally does leave.


  1. A great decision! She is very beautiful, I hope she will live a long time, seven years old..she is still young ..
