Old Dogs

This feedback from one of my e-corrrespondents: One of the things I think about from time to time is an article to tell owners of aging dogs not to worry so much. It's something I am very
conscious of as my Spot is 13+ and Ollie died of cancer at 11. Cloudy eyes, not so bad, stiff joints, keep the weight off and exercise, sleeps too much (me, too) but also need new interests to keep them going. Lucy the cat has proved a rejuvenating irritation for little Spot. Also get rid of the fatty tumors as they can really slow these guys down even through the vets say they are benign. At work, so got to run. Nell sounds like my kind of dog, but we're a little over run at the mo.
