    6 years ago my better half was told he had 6 months due to congestive heart failure.

    Today he passed another 6 month checkup with his cardiologist with flying colors. He's 13 and has a bit of arthritis in his back legs but we still walk every day.

    Meds and lots of spoiling plus he has a great attitude and zero stress, I should be so lucky! I've been on pins n needles all week.

    He walked out of the clinic tail wagging and like a boss today, he's not ready to go anywhere just yet.

    That's great news! Our Golden (Gracie) is same age, but lately has lost something. I don't think there's anything wrong with her. She's just looks tired and acts kind of sad.
