Hi. Friend - when a dog reaches high age - a problem emerges : Do you keep the dog alive because you have the dogs best at heart or because of your needs?
I have had three dogs over the years - bird dogs - and the day the quality of life sank below a certain mark - (thats easy to see in a dogs eyes You know the embarrassing look??) - that was the day I had to start the process of getting prepared for the loss of a family member..
Happy new year ,!!
