Cassady celebrated her 18th birthday on December 4, 2008. We go for walks across the street at Fresh Pond Reservation. At night she is anxious to get home for dinner--which she knows is waiting for our return. She will sometimes be so anxious to get home that she will break into a run--as best one could describe an 18+ year old dog trying to do. This was not her best day for running, but represents just how much she wants to get home for the evening meal. - rlg
