84 years young
The final member of the clan - the ray-ray; raggie; the jag-it man - its JayJay. He turned 84 doggie years this week but you'd never know it. He's always had the face of an old man but plays like a puppy. He offered you a ball to throw for him yesterday little HK. You're a little young to grasp the concept yet but your DK and I are always saying that if the old dog lives long enough the two of you will be great playmates. Happy birthday boy.
