I so enjoy my dogs and have since my first Min Pin about 25 years ago. I enjoy raising puppies, enjoy the hobby of showing them.
I don't necessarily enjoy watching them get old, go grey in what seems nano time, but alas, it is part of life. Min Pins are overall very long lived. Presently my eldest turned 18 on 2/9/15. She's the 3rd Min Pin that I've had to reach that age. I have also been fortunate with some of my seniors being accepted into someone's home to live their lives out with lots of attention. THAT makes me happy!! Thank you to those very special folks!
