Very sadly dogs do get dementia.Our very old male heeler is getting mean to our other dog, and they were raised together for the last 7 years. He also pees in his food dish after he eats. He can't hear much, and doesn't see well. I think he has dementia. Do dogs get demented? Maybe that's what's up with yours?
It does get lonely without your best friend. I understand. Sorry to hear the kids aren’t coming for Christmas. We had a Thanksgiving where none of ours made it, and it was a bit lonely.Same here. We're hoping to get one by Christmas. The kids aren't coming down for Christmas this year so it'll be a little lonely without Gus here.
