Sadie is still holding her own. Her appetite goes away every few days so feeding time is always a crap shoot. And her hind end seems to be getting worse, (not good on stairs or hopping in the car) so I had to add Glucosamine to the regime, but we're still here.

Hope all is well with you and Jenny.

Judy (and Sadie)
Jenny won't walk up the stairs anymore either. glad the glucosamine is working

Awe Judi. Jenny makes me laugh and yet her aging is sad to hear of as well. Coddle her for us too

I know what you mean - we took Maggie to the lake house and she was running around looking for trouble Friday. She has been sleeping non stop since. She really wore herself out. She just seems so frail at times then she will rebound. Nothing to do but wait and see.

thanks Tami, she was such a good girl she is getting lots of belly rubs. Even with the whole cry wolf thing

It was interesting to watch her acclimate at my Dad's. She did large circles around the living room that smaller, testing to see where she'd bump into things.

by day 3 between Jenny, Ranger, and us, she could track to the kitchen for water, the bedroom for me. it was something

Judi, we are new here so we haven't had the pleasure of getting to know Jenny yet, but I wanted to say I had an 18 1/2 yo, and they do, indeed, sleep more , but you know what to do. You are the mommy. I have had wonderful vets who always deferred to mommy instinct, just as my pediatricians do. Tail wagging and playing certainly means she is getting enjoyment from her life, and I suspect she enjoys her naps and cuddling. Plenty of older people who nap a lot as they age, and maybe have some cricks and ailments, but enjoy life and their loved ones. And if your Jenny is up to the task of a little manipulate-the-mommyness then she sounds like she is doing just fine. Even at 18 1/2yo, my baby would perk up her ears and l.o.v.e.d. her meals so very much. She napped in the sun, got lots of extra pets and massages, ate food, and did, indeed, go in her own time. And she was mostly deaf and pretty blind for the last couple of years of her life. Some might have said then was the time, but she didn't think so and enjoyed much beyond that. So love to you both and have beautiful moment together, even when just snuggling.

Glad to hear she is holding her own Judi. Nice that you feel comfortable in your evaluation of Jenny and aren't letting others influence the decision.

I imagine when I am old I will sleep a lot, but as long as I'm not in pain I would want to stay.
