Elmo 1994 –

I celebrated Elmo’s 20th birthday in December.  He is nearing the end of his run, but still manages to walk a couple hundred feet, bark at me when he wants a treat, and generally show his interest in life.  He is just like a human, but he is proceeding toward his end at a quicker pace.  I can only hope that when I am his age – about 100 in human terms – I will still enjoy eating, skipping down the street, and will not have turned into an old grump.  Dogs show us many of our best qualities and teach us a great deal about ourselves.
