Life with an older dog is amazing. If we meet our dogs when they are bouncing, enthusiastic youngsters and watch them get stiff and steady, ageing seems to happen quickly and brutally. Yet, loving an older dog is the sweetest thing in the world, they know our every movement and we know theirs. Their eyes get foggy and they might need a little extra light for that midnight toilet break. They might do odd things like lie on a hard floor when surrounded by expensive memory foam beds. The older dog might be going deaf, or simply ignoring you; leaving you wondering which it is.
