Dear Springtime,

I'd like you to meet a very special dog. Her name is Spud and she is a blue merle Australian Shepherd. I have called her my "little horse" because I went to a horse sale to buy a horse and I came back with her. She has been my constant companion for 13 years and 10 months. She does not follow me around the farm, she leads me.

Two years ago at age 12, she tore her left hind ACL chasing the horses. I had the vet perform surgery on her. Her recovery wasn't easy. She hated being restrained and moved like she hurt. A friend suggested I give her Joint Health Chewables which I did for a couple of months and saw some improvement but she still seemed in pain when walking. Sadly, I was coming to the conclusion that rather than let her suffer any more I would have to put her to sleep.

However, I got on the internet and read about Longevity and decided to give it a try. I ordered some and within a few days I noticed she wasn't hobbling around as much. Her coat was shinier. After two weeks she was moving easier, even going out into the corral and letting the horses know she was boss again. A month later she started running and was back to moving at a trot wherever she went.

It has been two years since I started giving Spud her Longevity. She does her little dance every night reminding me it's her treat time. I think she'd lick it right out of my hand. Friends and family, and even my vet can't believe she is as old as she is. She has always been my friend, buddy, and protector. Thanks to Longevity, Spud is still active and a part of my life.

Thank you!
