(Above) Schipperke senior female dog, age: about 16-17 years. She has scars on her hind legs from when she got clipped by a car in the street when she was about 6-years old and was 'helping' with bringing in the groceries. Luckily, she healed up with no limp and learned to 'stay' after that.
I like this photo as it shows the true colour of her eyes; she has a slight blue cast over the dark brown, caused by age.
We've had Raven since she was said to be 2 years old and adopted from the no-kill shelter as an abandoned purebred dog with indications of future hip dysplasia. I think her 'run-in' with a car in front of our home actually made the dysplasia not as bad as it would have been because she's handling it like a champ. She moves carefully sometimes but so do I and she's much older than me! :)
