The hardest part of dog companionship is the older ones. I have an 11.5 yo and he's gorgeous, came from top German lines in the US a working dog. He used to chase tennis balls I bounced off the wall and jumped to catch. The jumping after a yr caused back disc problems nothing to be done.
But now he's older and back end wobbles when he walks and he wears a diaper in the house. If he uses it I make him sleep on the porch that night. I hate the smell when I wake up. He knows how pissed I get yet continues. Yesterday after he went, I was on the computer and smelled crap, turned around and he was struggling to get off the foam bed he was on cuz he crapped on it. Happily they're all covered with blankets and towels. He slept outside last night, cuz no diaper that time.
I'm at a cross road of what to do with him. On walks he lags behind, legs aren't moving fast enough to keep up and I've got back issues there's no way I'm walking too fast. I almost had him PTS a couple weeks ago due to the crapping, it's like he doesn't know. I guess when he walks away from food it will be the end. I don't know what else to do.
At 5am my 6 yo let out a blood curdling scream. She was fine, nightmare? So at 5 they all went into the fenced area so I could catch up on sleep. Still wondering WTF she dreamt.

It's time to be merciful, I know it's hard, I've had to do it.

I've had him since a pup, he's in my photo spot. Other dogs from this girl's breeding live to 13+ so I'll wait till he stops eating or loses weight. This covid thing is gonna make me let him go inside the vet office without me and they'll do it. I don't think that's right.

Yeah I made an appointment Thurs 9am. to be PTS. I'm so ready to believe that Leela screamed at 5am cuz she knows whats gonna happen. I feel bad for her & try to explain. She looks depressed.

You have a great deal of sympathy from me. No one can convince me that dogs are not superior to people. They have all the qualities a solitary human being needs, except for being a sexual partner, which I have no need for at this time.
