Watching Our Furry Friends Age
Time sure does fly when you're having fun. I have two Golden Retrievers. They are the most lovable and intelligent dogs I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. They've been the best companions for our five year old little girl, especially since we live in a rural area and play dates with other kids are not readily available. These sweet dogs are my daughters best friends. Lately I've noticed how old my furry friends have become. The grey hair has worked it's way in and I see my friends turning into old men. It breaks my heart, but I would never give up that time that I've had the pleasure of spending with them. I've been thinking about buying my old guys their own pet beds. My oldest dog is 9 1/2 years old and the other one is 7 years old. It seems that our dogs bones are starting to bother them and they move a little slower each and every day. I was hoping that sleeping in a pet bed would ease some of their pain. Now I just need to find a size big enough for my canine friends. I sure do have some chubby dogs. Wish me luck.
