Ozzie Has Mellowed Out
Throughout the years, I have the pleasure of knowing Ozzie personally because he is my friend Ric's dog. Also, I have dog-sat Ozzie and Ellie a few times. Ellie is a dachshund and passed away about three years ago, due to old age. She was 14 years old. Ozzie is a cairn terrier and has always been the playful and energetic one. He wags his tail in excitement when he sees you. When it's time for a walk, he is so eager to get out that he will pull on his leash with full force.
I had the chance to catch up with Ric and Ozzie at his party, about a week ago. I saw that Ric was about to take Ozzie for a walk and I decided to tag along.
I asked Ric, "How old is Ozzie now?"
Ric answered, "He is 15 years old."
I was surprised to learn that Ozzie is that old.
Ric also added, "Now he seems to be closer to me. He often likes to be near me and is always at my side when I eat."
Time does fly. I always pictured in my head that Ozzie was this young lively dog. In the last few parties that Ric has hosted, I don't recall Ozzie climbing up on the couch or on my lap. He remains friendly, but a little more subdued, like a retired rockstar!
