Here is a pic of my "Fatty Flattie". Tiggy is 14 years old and gets plenty of treats and rest. I know it is not good for dogs to be overweight (just like people!), but at age 14 she can have whatever she wants!

Yep Tiggy...when you reach the age of retirement you can whatever you want whenever you want :) Especially when you are THAT cute!

Awww. She looks so sweet. My boy Spencer went to the Bridge at age 14. I love their senior years. Her white little face reminds me of him.

She's so sweet looking! Virga lays like that too and always makes people laugh when she does. I wonder if it's a female thing. Doppler never lays like that. And I agree...at 14 she can have whatever she wants. Here's to many more Tiggy! ?Love the name btw.

Now that Lightning is in his advanced years (I can't believe he's old!), he doesn't lay like that anymore. I miss it. And Miss Tiggy isn't fat! That last picture of her isn't taken from the most flattering angle, I must say, but she looks very healthy and happy.

There is something so very special about an older dog. While the younger ones are more of a challenge and demanding, the older ones seem so gentle and happy with anything that you do for them. We people need to learn a lesson from them.;)

That's what my 89 year old mom told the doctor when he told her she should eat something besides cheese and crackers, that she was old enough to eat whatever she wanted to, and she didn't take advice from kids younger than her grandchildren.

I think I'm in love with your mom!

Seriously (?), that is a great attitude, and she is totally correct on it. I don't know why doctors worry so much about what older people are eating, as long as they are eating.

O.K, Tiggy insists that I apologize for saying she is fat. She also wants everyone to know that she is not fat, she just has a lot of loose skin and thick fur!! :) She can be pretty bossy sometimes!
