This is Copper and he is 10 years old. I have watched him age and it is so sad. Notice how "gray" his face is.............................and he is deaf now. I worry about him. We have had old, deaf dogs who have laid down behind or under trucks or farm equipment and could not hear when the vehicle was started to alert them to move and they were run over. It is so sad. Farm dogs are so special. They always want to go with their masters, riding in the back of pickups and in the cabs of tractors. They enjoy the freedom of running on the farm, enjoying the idea that they are their master's favorites of all the animals on the farm. I hope Copper will be ok.
