7 Years Old

My amazing animal turned 7 years old on November 17th, 2012. I'm so grateful that I've had him by my side, healthy and happy, for so long. Great Danes are a short-lived breed, and I've known quite a few that have passed away well before 7 years of age. Whether the reasons were accidents, inevitable health problems, or disreputable breeding programs, I know I am blessed to have my baby with me still.
We look forward to the future, and spending lots of time together, this winter, especially. Savvy seems to enjoy the new snow. It makes him more goofy and playful, which reminds me fondly of the silly puppy he was 7 years ago...
