    Happy 13th Birthday to Ursa on March 10th/24!

    Happy 13th Birthday dear, sweet, beautiful, happy, funny girl, Ursa-Bear!!!!

    Every birthday is special to our dogs and us, but we all know that once our beloved dogs reach 10, 11 or 12 years old, all birthdays that follow are extra special and important.

    Ursa is doing well over all. Thankfully, she only has some minor arthritis that bothers her, she still gets 3 pills a day for her epilepsy, and she loves to go for her walks, but especially loves to play ball/soccer at "HER" park. Just again today, Ursa ran after her blue ball like a youngster. It gives my/our heart joy to watch her play. And often I tell her to keep on playing and being young. Ursa has some eyesight loss (especially at night) and as of lately, some hearing loss as well. We blame the bad ear infections she had recently for hearing loss in her left ear. Ursa's appetite is great! She loves her homemade/raw foods and smucks when she's eating her meals. Ursa also loves her younger 'sister', Loua, even though Loua mother-hens over Ursa.

    We're sooooo very blessed to have Ursa in our lives and family and we love her beyond words!!!

    Happy Birthday dear Ursa!!! We hope for many more healthy and happy years to come!!! XO XO XO!!!

    It sounds like Ursa is aging gracefully and graciously.

    Happy Birthday, sweet Ursa!

    Thanks for the birthday wishes for Ursa. She had a great day!
    Here are 3 pictures from yesterday, March 10th, Ursa's birthday. Yes, her sweet face is graying, but her mind and body are still youthful.

    Sorry for the sideways pictures, that's how they uploaded.
