Help! My baby is getting old, what do I need to know?
by Annette G
My little Louie Coton has been the most precious addition to my life. He is the only dog I've ever had and I feel so incredibly blessed. I would never consider another breed after knowing what I know now. In June he turned 10 and I worry a bit. He is still playful but I can see the changes slowly taking place. Is it a myth or is he really 70 in human years?
He can't jump near as high so finally after many years of avoiding it he uses a step to get on and off my bed. A time or two his back legs barely make it on the couch. I'd like to be mindful of what I need to know to care for my aging angel. Is there any advice this community can offer. Anything I should watch for?
He gets his annual exam and teeth cleaning annually. Heck I turned 50 and feel aches and pain daily. I wish he could tell me what's hurting so I could be there for him like he has been for me. I Need him around for a long time I pray!
