They finally get normal around 60, but their butts fall off, they get all wrinkly, their hair turns blue, and their hands turn into turkey feet...
I've got to this stage......hell you don't even need to blink, just type a word out of place on the internet that will do as well.

When I was ill last week my son was going over and letting Ace out of the barn after she had finished her supper, now I'm being asked why it takes John 2 minutes to pop across the yard and open a gate to let her out, and it tales me nearly 20 minutes...

Well John doesn't do it properly, when you let Ace out, you just don't open the gate, you have to play with Angel first, the give Ace a big hug, then you open the gate, which means that you have to talk to G Man who is waiting to go through and see if she left anything, pat Destiny as she goes through to try and beat G Man to the mythical left overs, then it's a big hug for Ben who is waiting just along the fence line.

Then it's giving in the the constant nudges in the back, and turn round and chat to young Alfie, and of course where Alfie is Stewie will be close by, and he needs his nose kissed as well. Finally it's a short stroll over to Big Bert who is hanging around with that "I don't care if you talk to me or not" attitude, but is really happy to have a nose rub and a hug.

Just opening the gate is not the whole job!

Perhaps I should be wed to him? Nothing I like more than Santa bringing me a new band saw, drill, bits of the drilling kind anything that is useful.

I could spend a fortune in a good tool shop, more so than a tack shop because I have more saddles than I can use.

No good her coming here then!
We have 12 dogs - was thirteen until earlier this week when one was diagnosed with cancer so she crossed the bridge.
Last year we had seventeen as we walk foxhound pups for the hunt and they were short on puppy walkers we took on two couple. (I am insane!)
Seventeen horses, about 60 chickens, turkeys and ducks and a small flock of sheep.

Did have some barn cats but they packed their suitcases and moved out as the dog numbers increased, possibly very sensible of them as most are terrors - sorry, terriers.

We are not dog collectors, we have either inherited them or they have come to stay and never gone home!
