He still wags his tail
September 9, 2020
My dog Jem turned 14 this week.
He’s the last of my dogs that became acquainted with my father, who passed away nearly 14 years ago.
Now the old dog is starting to act like the old man at the end. He moans and groans a lot, sleeps all the time, but always wakes up hungry. He demands to be fed, watered, let in, let out. He voices his unsolicited opinion on everything.
However, there’s a big difference between old man and old dog. I never considered having the old man put down. I may have thought about it, sure, but never really considered it.
With Jem, I think about it all the time.
