Japhy Ryder has always had a great outlook on life. Despite having some anxiety issues, which at times can be quite severe, he has always loved, trusted, and been loyal to his family.We try to stay very active in our family. It not only helps us feel better and gives us energy, but it also helps slow the aging process. At 11 years old, Japhy still has lots of energy and can still snag frisbees out of the air like nobody’s business. All of his anxiety issues go away when he is in a park or outside hiking. Besides being next to his Mom in bed or on the couch, this is his favorite place. We had recently found another trail that allows dogs on it and this is a shot of his reaction of getting to go for a hike.
