Old and Clumsy

Or could it clumsy because old?

Our lovable, goofy dog Onyx will turn 12 years old in a few months. He has always been clutsy and prone to injury, but as he ages, it seems to be getting worse. During the past month or so, he has tripped on the stairs at least three times and hurting his leg each time – once so bad that we had to get it X-rayed to be sure there wasn’t any serious damage. A week of Metacam and rest and he was good-as-new.

Yesterday, he did it again. After yesterdays incident, we have decided to block the stairs off to him so that he will only go downstairs when necessary. His legs don’t work like they used to and he is obviously having more and more difficulty “doing” the stairs.

Other than his “tired old legs”, he seems to be doing very well.  Oh the joys of getting old.
