...is starting to show his age, especially around the eyes.
...is having a hard time with the heat.
...is sleeping a lot more than playing these days.
This dog is loved and spoiled.
He has started getting on our bed as soon as we leave the house.
We know this because he leaves his dog hair as evidence.
And because if we run back in the house for something, we hear the "thud" and the jingle of his collar as he quickly jumps back down off the bed.
And, he is closing in on 9 dog years, which is like mid 60's in human years.
We need to see if we can get him some senior citizen discounts anywhere.
