Aging Dogs

We have 2 senior greyhounds. Our very first greyhound, Mandy, is now 11 years old. We have noticed her slowing down during this past year and now she is not able to walk the distances she used to. She still thoroughly enjoys her walks, but they are much shorter than they used to be.

Onyx, is our most senior greyhound. At 13, he is nearing the end of his time with us. During the past few weeks, he has gone downhill very quickly. He is very unsteady on his back legs. He has a vet appointment this weekend to see what we can do to make him comfortable for the remainder of his life.

No matter how long they are with us, it is always extremely difficult to let them go when it is time. With 2 of our 4 greyhounds being seniors, it has been on our minds alot lately.

At least we have the knowledge that they have good, happy, fulfilled and very loved lives with us. We know that they are very happy here. They let us know in their own way, everyday. Even Onyx, with his problems, still wags his tail very happily when we get home.
