I worked for a man who had two dogs (mother and daughter) who were 24 and 23 years old. They were both blind, deaf, and arthritic, but he loved them and wouldn't let them go. He was in his late 80s and they had been his wife's dogs.

That's what I said. He was ready to fire me. He was also blind and arthritic, and wore two hearing aids, and he said, *You'd kill me to if you get the chance* He was a bit strange. I stopped talking about the subject. This happened back in 1983. I imagine, by now they are all dead.

I lost one of the best dogs that I have ever known just before her 16th birthday. I kept telling my husband that she would settle down once she was out of the "terrible twos", but she was always silly and playful until about a month before she died. I still miss her and she has been gone for almost four years. Keep doing what you see works for your dog...and I hope you have lots more years together! Caithness
