Bandy's Getting Old
Bandy, our dog, went to the vet today for a skin irritation. He's 13 1/2 years old now and can't even get up in the truck anymore. I have to lift him up. According the the true "dog charts" he's over 100 years old now in true dog years. He walks humped up and drags his right leg. He's not in any pain, his heart wants to play, but his body won't let him do it. Poor puppy, all he does is sleep all day long. We've given him a good life and a wonderful home. He's given us a lot of love in return. Everyone at Dr. Norris' office has watched him grow up from a 3 month old puppy. It's going to be a very sad day when we have to take that "last trip" up to the vet's office. I don't even want to think about it. I know it's a reality that every pet owner has to face, but it's not something I want to ever think about.
