Don’t know why this brought tears to my eyes. Maybe because I have 2 middle aged dogs, and I am not young anymore either.
One of the greatest tragedies in this world is that we are doomed to forever outlive our pets.
pls dont make me cry, im at work!
Man…dogs are such a gift.
Damn. People live far too long, whereas dogs live far too short.
Thank you for reminding me to hug my dog while I still can.
Old dogs have great vibes
My beautiful cat Monster is getting old, nearing 15 now. He’s still doing well, but he can’t jump as high as he used to and he sleeps a LOT more. He still has some good years in him, but I know we’re on borrowed time at this point, as the average age for his breed is 12.
Now I remember the times when we had a dog. Good old times.
Animals use up their kind hearts too quickly. It takes humans much longer to do so.
All the feels for this, my dog is blind but he’ll always come to the front door and get excited when I come home, demanding but scratches whilst boofing at me.
I have a 17 year old Pekingese that we are treating for cancer. His eyesight and hearing has been going for several years. He sometimes has that spark of spunk in him, but most times he diligently walks his guard route, making sure the cats are behaving – staring off the the distance. When I’m working in the office, he will come in and stand by my chair, and after a few head scretches, will slowly go back to the route. He used to do high fives after we celebrate a touchdown or a run scored, but he can barely get up on his hind legs now (we still give him treats when we celebrate – he understands that something good happened)
It sucks to see them get old – I remember when we got him as the chunky pick of the litter. He has outlived all his brothers and sisters. We are dreading the upcoming day.
My dog is 12, and he’s mostly blind but also late last year was diagnosed with dementia/Alzheimer’s, he has really bad days often but every now and then he is just like his old self. Love that old man so much!!
I would give my life just so dogs could outlive an average human
I’m not crying! You’re crying!
My 13 yo black labrador was exactly like that and she was such a happy girl. Sadly she had a heart attack past month and she didn’t resist.
I always tell myself that she was happy to the end and she didn’t really suffer from her old age, having a quick and peaceful death. This is usually enough to prevent me from crying and instead be happy for her c:
Aang and Appa!
Our Jones passed away a few weeks ago, this is breaking my heart. He was 13 years old.
All the feels💛💛
My little lady just turned 15 y.o.
She’s blind and almost deaf, also sleeps most of the day, but everytime I get home I’m always welcomed by her wagging her tail.
Please excuse me while I go cry into my old lady dog’s fur
Great now i need to go and hug my dogs.
Love dogs ❤
My golden lab is old. We have him on medicine, he’s not in pain, but I know that soon the day will come to have to make that hard decision.
I miss my old doggos.
It’s coming up on the one year anniversary of my 19 year old chihuahua passing. He couldn’t walk for his last year. I’m just so glad I got to spend the time with him. I hope he knew I was holding him when he crossed the bridge.
This makes me remember our old dog she unfortunately had to be put down in November of 2019 at the age of 13 due to internal bleeding we never found out why she had internal bleeding my mother suspects cancers though she’s still around she sits in a blue box with a bunch of photo’s in my mother’s room
My 17 year old cat died a year ago. He was completely blind his last two years. Still, he could navigate the house and yard as if he still had his full sight – – it was just incredible. When younger he coyld be difficult sometimes, frequently biting if anybody dared touched his belly, but also a great buddy who accompanied me from one chapter of my life to another and another. We spent the last two years of his life enjoying cuddles and naps. He was tired I think. This time of the end was like a last gift from him to us.
Always tear up. Special creatures
My cat is 18, sights have gone pretty bad, hearing ain’t what it used to, but every morning and afternoon I am greeted to a concert of meows and licks when she pinpointed me. Awwww
“The more I learn about people, the more I like my dog”
Make a list of your dog’s favorite things. If it can’t do 3 and struggles with a 4th, it’s time.
