That period of life when what was so relevant isn't as relevant. Lighten Up!
In loving arms, the photo of the man and his dog ….see the photo at this link, cry, wipe eyes, then read the article
Meanwhile, as we contemplate our dog, Jake’s needs for his senior years, his last years, seeing this just floods me in tears.
We love our dog, Jake, he loves us, unconditionally. He has been a big part of our family for 15 years now. Australian Shepherds can live up to 15 years – sometimes longer, most times less. Jake is still perky enough when he isn’t sleeping or dreaming, dreaming he is running as all his legs are in motion. He still loves his walks, we have to help him up to stand on his hind legs, once he is up though, he is determined to walk on his legs. He actually still bounds back and forth in joy and delight, does little leaps when he realizes it is his walk time. His sensory faculties, hearing, seeing are seriously reduced, he follows our hand movements very closely in case we have a treat, he wants to know where we will put it. And he still rolls on his side so I can scratch his tummy, in those loving moments. Looking at getting him a harness, and it may be getting time for male doggie diaper – there is some time left for him to enjoy the quality of life he has left.
