English Springer Spaniel puppy and older dog

My poor blog has been sorely neglected!  I've got ideas in my head and my hands are busy, but unfortunately have not had time to get some posts ready.  So... while you wait, here's some more fluffy eye candy and sweet memories for me.

When we first got Daisy (9 years old this March), Sam was our senior dog with no patience for an energetic puppy.  Daisy took quite a liking to him, but the only time Sam seemed quite okay with her was when she was napping.

Daisy came to complete understanding of the patience needed when we brought Moose into her life and she's now the senior.

I was curious where the phrase "Let sleeping dogs lie" came from.  After a brief google search:  

It's a very old proverb. Chaucer used it in the form "It is nought good a slepyng hound to wake" and it is recorded even earlier in the 14th century in French: "nesveillez pas lou chien qui dort".

It means: "don't stir up trouble; if the situation is quiet at the moment, let it be".
