Ceili the German Shepherd

Ceili, our German Shepherd, will be 12 years old in a couple of weeks. We got her from Deblyn's in Gustine, CA in 2000. Her AKC name is "Deblyn's Irish Ceili". She has certainly lived up to her name!
Ceili has been slowing down a lot in the past few months. She loves to romp around the yard in either the snow or the grass...but her back legs have been giving her some trouble for the past couple of months and she just can't run around like a nut anymore.
Ceili has always loved babies...of all types. She was the one who guarded the Yorkie puppies and let them sleep on her head and between her paws. She still loves it when Bridget the Yorkie lays on her back or uses her as a ladder to look out the window! She has also developed a great curiosity about the chickens.


She will lay on the grass, endlessly, and just watch them. They chickens drive the Yorkies berserk...but Ceili just wants to watch them.
This is Ceili's couch. She hangs out in the living room with us, just watching TV or snoozing.
This is another very common pose...fast asleep and snoring on the living room floor. For a 90 lb. GSD, she spends a lot of time napping...but just wait until the UPS truck drives down our street or someone rings the doorbell....it's TIME TO BARK!

We hope she has many more years with us, but I wanted to post about this special girl in case her time is coming to a close.She has been a very faithful companion. I spend a lot of time with her, and we have done some very fun training. And-she is the biggest lap dog I've ever had!
