Thought I'd share some recent pictures of our Tess. She's 9 years old. She's gotten somewhat sedentary (would love to sleep the day away) but manages to pick up her feet for a good run on a regular basis. One was taken after she had a nice dip in our local lagoon, and one is of her playing tug-of-war with her large (Golden) baby brother Tucker (a bit blurry, taken with iPhone and they were moving...!). And the third was taken on her ninth birthday in March. She's a classic CKCS--very loving, always wagging, and wants to be near her humans all the time.
