Older photos: Pointing Pit Bull

I was going through some older photos in my photobucket account and came across this photo from 2005. It's at an off-leash park in Napa. Oh god, she used to love running off leash with the other dogs.

 
And yes, she'd point. She would still herself, including her tail, and lift up her right leg, always her right, and curl it under her. She'd tense and gaze off in the distance. Sometimes, it would be clear to me what she was looking at - a rat, mole or another dog, but mostly I had no idea what was going on in her head (or perhaps, her nose).

Here's another. This photo is a little painful to look at - this is a young Mina, now is an old Mina. I don't like that one bit.

Now those legs and shoulders give her trouble. I don't think she could comfortably maintain a point at this stage in her life. But I have photographic evidence that, for many years, she was a Pointing Pit Bull.

Stunning Pointed Pit Bull!

Why did she stop enjoying running off leash with other dogs?

I think she has aged exceptionally well. She never strikes me as an old lady when she is sitting on my lap being cute.

I loved it when she pointed. Sometimes, I'd have to run at her to get her to move (and she'd be all, wut?)

She still enjoys running off leash with other dogs. The park just got to be too popular. Mina's great one-on-one and good with a small group of dogs. But big groups of dogs get her all TERRIER TERRORIST. Actually, she turns into a stalking Border Collie, heel-nipping Cattle Dog. No one seems to like that. :)

She has aged well. As you know, people still ask if she's a puppy. I see her age in so many ways, but I like to pretend she's still a youthful two year old (or I could go around saying what my vet says when she sees Mina, Why! Her teeth look like a 5-yr-old!)

I couldn't agree more! She's pretty much living forever.

How old in Mina now? I think I've missed her age somewhere

She just turned 11 in November. :) In those pictures, she's six.
