Looking through some old photos, I was surprised to find this shot of Lucky standing by a patch of daffodils in the front yard. The bright yellow trumpet blooms snagged my attention as I glanced over the rows and rows of thumbnails. I clicked to enlarge it. Ahhh, sweet springtime. It won't be long now.
And then I noticed something else. Lucky looks so young! I can't say I've visibly noticed him getting older, although I'm certainly aware of his advancing age (hence the ramp). But on walks and hikes he outpaces all of us, seeming never to tire. But the inky black of his face in this photo, along with those youthful bright eyes really surprised me. How different he looks now! That black fur still shines, only now with the addition of salty white accents and bushy white "eyebrows." I realized I love his mature look. His face has so much character now. In fact, I think those eyebrows lend him a somewhat distinguished air. Take a look. Doesn't he favor Sean Connery just a bit?
