Dog of the Day: Ani the 17-Year-Old Indian Spitz

I first ran into Ani on a lovely day in June, 2012, down in the South Beach area. And then I didn’t see her again after that, and honestly I was a little worried… she was 16, after all… And then I ran into her at the end of March, right near my apartment. It seems she moved away from Mission Bay, and up near me! And now I’ve run into her three times in the last two months.

She’s a real grand dame, and still getting around okay, despite being 119 in dog years.

That face. She always looks a little sad. I hope she’s not.

The dark patch near her eye is, I think, just tear stains.
