    She is in a huff because we've gone on a walk without her.:) her favourite friend is coming in a bit to give herc cuddle and play her favourite sofa game. So it will be ok

    After a few days of feeling a bit low Moos getting about
    and feeling good again . She's eating OK and not lost anymore weight. Some days she's not too keen to eat especially in the mornings and I have to bump start her with a tasty treat of nice normal dog food, but all things considered I'm pleased with how she's going. she's still going for a little walk everyday and enjoying that although she does seem to tire quickly. She likes it though so there's reason not too as long as I'm careful. She's such a dear sweet old thing I fall in love with more everyday. She's still up to mischief and playing with Rory just sleeping a lot more but she's still got the silly Moo spark. I was laughing at her before went to work as she was trying to get my Oh to hurry up and go so she could have her khong. She pestered him until he got his shoes on, she knew we were laughing at her bossiness and just made her worse and more waggy.

    I would recommend the royal canin renal diet food too. It's definitely helped to keep her hydrated and her poos (sorry) are more normal now.

    Glad Moo has perked up a bit, there is something very special about old dogs, especially ones with a spark x

    Very sad yesterday I realised Moo couldn't play with her interactive toys anymore or just didn't want to? She wouldnt even attempt her favourite rope and bottle you which she loved and I even got her a new khong toy which is tough fabric with pouches to hide treats in and she didn't even try to find them sadly. I do wonder if she manages all her khong too? I think her vision is worse or she can't manage things so easily with her teeth being damaged. It's so upsetting that she's not interested in her toys. A little bit more fun has disappeared for her it makes me unhappy.

    Sad to hear. Maybe one of the Kong Quest toys with something soft smeared in the channels might interest her? It would be easy on the teeth.

    Yes, perhaps trying smearing something tasty that she can lick off one of her toys? :hug:

    Poor Moo.
    Hoping she defies them all and pinches something illicit.
    :hug:

    Already doing that but today she's having sausage. It's not on the list but she looked interested. :). I know she will deteriorated but seeing her loose her fun things is hard. She needs to be happy

    So sorry to read about Moo. It's so difficult when you see them going downhill
