  • Bessie is now 13 1/2 years old. She has always been warm inside. Our house is now the coldest it has ever been. We try our best to keep her comfortable. She used to be an outside dog in her previous life so maybe that is the reason. We bought her a cooling mat to lay on. It has seemed to help. Around the same time that she got the cooling mat we starting giving her CBD oil. We have seen some changes in her during this time. We have a split level home and she has never shown any interest in going upstairs unless it is storming out and she needs reassurance from Dad. We have security cameras in our home to check on our dogs when we are at work. We have noticed recently that she is going upstairs and checking the kitchen out when we are gone. She is looking out the back window. She will be downstairs in the bedroom and then back in the living room. It is very exciting for us that she is strong enough to be up and down all these stairs while we are gone. The funny part is she still will not go upstairs without assistance while we are home. She thinks she is getting away with something. Shh…don’t tell her we know.

    Silly Bessie, you sure know how to play your people right! Smart girl.

    I’m so glad to hear she’s doing so well and is so mobile, what a great sign that life is good for your girl. What a blessing to have such a healthy, hoppy senior Tripawd!

    P.S. I had to squint real hard to see your photo. Got a bigger one you can upload? I’d love to share this post.
