We really don't know his age. I think that he is 13. My vet thinks that Basil is 15. No matter what his age is, he is one of those lucky dogs who is living a long life. And boy, on top of it all, he is loved.
Now onto something not so depressing: It was beautiful outside, and we had a new neighbor moving in. She is a beautiful 15-week-old golden retriever. The dogs were excited to meet her, and I managed to take nice pictures of Carrie and Basil. I hope you enjoy them.

My sweet Basil.
