"Felicity was 15 on 28 March this year. A really good
age. She is pottering around and at times very lively
when her nose gets on a scent. It's amazing with scent
hounds that even when they are old the sense of smell overtakes everything else!
She's a little more fussy eating now and likes a change now and again. We have cut her walking down and vary it depending on her joints, especially her back legs, which occasionally give way if she takes off too fast.
She has cataracts now and her hearing is not great,
although like my mother these days it could be 'selective' hearing! She had her yearly check up last September and
the vet was pleased with her. No problems bar her
heart murmur that had worsened a little but was still within non medication ratios.
We do worry about her and some nights I look at her in her bed and think oh gosh she's not breathing and then have to prod her gently to make sure all is well. What a joy she has been in our lives".
