12 Years

Our Newfoundland Hikari turned 12 years old this year. That is a very good age for this breed that has an average life expectancy of 10. We often take her to a local park where she can watch the activities, including the other dogs out for a walk. Click on the image for a larger view.

Hikari is nine this year and well into her senior years. She still has a puppy face and youthful inquisitiveness—she has just spotted another dog on one of her walks in the picture above. She is certainly enjoying city life. Click on the image for a larger view.
