I don't know where to begin. I'm struggling emotionally with my swiftly aging dog. I know I'm not the only one who has gone through this so I wanted to start a chat about old dogs. A place where we can share stories of pets we have and pets we've lost. What are your favorite memories of your dogs when they were young? What activities do your old dogs enjoy? How do you pamper them? How do you know when it's time to say goodbye? How do you know if/when you are ever ready for another dog? What has your family done special for your dog in life or as a memorial after death? Some days are better than others. I'm having a ruff day today thinking about this and thought maybe hearing others' stories would help.
