We got Dempsey when he was around 1 – 2 years old. We have had him for going on three years so that makes him anywhere from 4 – 5 years old. That does not sound old to us, but we have noticed him ‘acting older’.
He always lays around the house like he had such a hard day at work.
He has a hard time jumping on the bed when he used to spring up like it was nothing.
When he has to pee, he has to pee.
He would rather sniff something at the dog park than chase Rizzy around.
Sometimes it gets sad, but I know it is normal and he still is active. However, he does need a bit motivating factor (like food) when he used to just round around like a lunatic.
When did 8 o’clock p.m become the new midnight?
When did your dog start ‘acting’ old?
