Sprockette never slowed in her later years. She was nearing 14 when we lost her, heart worms not age. Vet said if it wasn't for the heart worms ( she'd had them her entire life. It was a horrid battle, and the coughing made me sick... ) she probably would've lived two or more years! I know age doesn't slow them down... I have videos of Sprockette, pregnant with her last litter at 11, shaking and killing snakes and mice as we did the annual barn clean out!
Although, she DID want her daily sun baths...
