I thought that there must be many of us who have old dogs and might like a little support from a thread dedicated to our old friends and our attempts to help them age gracefully. It can be a lot of work to care for an old dog and watching them age can be difficult too. Hopefully this thread can provide a place to show off the good old dogs and share experiences, resources and knowledge. Here is my girl: Echo, 15 year old german shepherd /lab mix and my best pal! She gets around pretty well, though her back legs are getting weak. I basically carry her up the stairs at night but she comes down on her own. She is mostly deaf (I'm so glad I trained her for hand signals way back when). Sometimes she gets confused and disoriented and just needs comforting. Last night she kept me up until 2 am, she had to go outside twice. Just like having a puppy... Echo among her bluebells This picture was taken a year ago I will attempt to update this thread with the new things Echo and I learn as we navigate the world of extreme canine geriatrics. Hopefully others will do the same and we can learn many things to our dogs, and our own benefit. Let's meet some old dogs!
