birthday girl

Lizzy turned 14 yesterday on her observed birthday. We adopted her on September 7, 2002 and she was about 8 months old at the time, so we celebrate her birthday each January. 14 seems like quite a milestone–not many dogs make it to that age. While she has a few health problems, she’s still pretty peppy–you’d never guess she’s as old as she is.
