Old Timers ....
I'm wondering who here has "older" doggies.
My Blackie will be 14 years old in 2 weeks. I see signs of his age all the time, but he's actually not too bad. His eyes are cloudy, but he can still see; he doesn't seem to have much arthritis even though his legs get shaky if he plays too hard; his teeth are still good - he has no problem eating, even his milkbones. He is, however, deaf as a post.
Dutchy will be 11 in April. He has a lot of stiffness in the mornings so it's tougher getting him up and around - but he still acts like a kook and plays like a maniac. It's just the getting up in the a.m. that he has trouble with.
A friend of mine has a shih tzu/maltese mix that will be 18 in December. 18 !!
