Has it ever occurred to you why it takes humans seven years to learn and a dog only one year? It is said that, “You can’t teach an old dog new tricks.” There are answers to these ? facts.Puppies are so cute, but they are truly a handful. As they grow up they sure do tend to tear up shoes, doors and the likes. Babies are cute and they tend to tear up stuff, too. Have you ever seen a teenager that really took care of his/her car? Yes, a lot can be said about dogs. However, an old dog has a face of wisdom, kindness and tolerance. Folks can learn a lot from dogs.I promised Z, that as each dog from our clan died, I wouldn’t replace them. Uncle Archie lived about thirteen years. We only had him in his latter years. There is nothing better than an old dog. Archie, was grumpy, but he also was kind hearted. He and Rojo came to live with us only twelve hours apart. These two were buddies from the start. Rojo slept on top of Archie. Yes, I’ll keep my promise to Z, as how could I ever replace Uncle Archie?P.S. Keep cool!
