Deli 10 years
Our oldest Smooth Collie, Deli reached the age of 10 on January 19 and was therefore accordingly celebrated both on her birthday and together with dog friends for brunch today. We are very grateful for still having her around! There have been times during those 10 years where we weren’t sure she would ever make it to 10, mainly for health reasons. It took several visits to the emergency at young age before we realised she is suffering from a badly functioning pancreas. She has therefore been on a special low-fat diet for most of her life and that has worked well. Most of her life has been spent together with the older dog Glitnir, but when Glitnir had to be put to sleep in spring 2002, puppy Jörfi moved into our family instead. Jörfi has made everyone livelier including Deli who spends a lot of time each day playing with Jörfi now 9 months old. It’s hard to imagine a calmer and sweeter dog than Deli. We owe many thanks to Aila at kennel Honey Melon in Finland, who sold us this amazing dog 10 years ago!
