The Old Man

This is Bill who will be 10 at the end of December. He is such a quiet and loyal dog. He is enjoying he warmth today as he has a bit of the old rheumatics and is stiff in a morning.

He never appears to look happy even when he is wagging his tail. When he goes to the vets Nick can do anything he likes with him and he shows no emotion whatsoever. The problem with this is that we couldn't find out what was wrong with his shoulder a while ago. Fortunately it got better. He now has supplements to help his joints. This is his happy face - trust me!
He looks sweet -- funny description :)

Aw he does look sweet. Labradors always look rather sad don't they.

I did smile at this! Not every face shows happiness in a smile but I am glad he is happy nonetheless!
