Our beautiful boy is 13.5 yrs - he has arthritis in his back legs. He really struggles both going to lie down and getting up again. His walks are now 10 mins and he struggles at the end but is very excited to go out! He’s started barking for no reason and wanders around the house so we think he may have some dementia. 18 months ago he had some teeth out and I can see the rest are now in bad shape - he licks constantly. My young son today asked me if he would leVe us soon. How do we know? He is keen for his breakfast but now never asks for supper ( he has alwYs done until quite recently). He is the most gentle kind and handsome boy and our whole family adores him. Will I just know when the time is here?
