Confused Dog!

My sweet Casey is not himself lately. He has lost most of his hearing and he loves it when I talk to him and understands the important words like Out and Go for  walk and now he just stares at me and looks like he is trying to read my lips. He is also sick, low protein and kidney problems, so he is on a special diet and aspirin so he doesn't throw a clot. Sadly our pets get older and since he has lyme too, he has problems caused by that. But he is a happy dog and he gets lots of love and likes to sit on the porch with me and watch the birds.

For some reason, after I washed the cat bed and put it upstairs, he thinks it is for him. No flash, so a bit  yellow.


Today we went to best buy, I had free money, so I finally got myself a flash for my camera. It is small and lightweight and does the job without the high cost, so very happy with my purchase. I had to hit savers while I was up there and found this wonderful fabric. A yard each at 1.99, so a good deal for fun fabric to make some sewing items with. This I took with the new flash. It is so nice to get truer colors.

Oh, I can so identify. My sweetie is 13 and this week I think the rest of her hearing went. She's on pain management and accupuncture. They are just so special ;-) Best wishes to you.

Looks like he like the smell of the fresh cat bed. It is so hard when our pets gets old. but as long as they are not in a lot of pain and happy all is well

oh he is so sweet! It's so tough when they get older and have all the health issues. I know what you are going through! I think if we give them all the love and care they deserve they are happy in old age!
Cute fabric and enjoy the new flash!
Hugs!

Sounds like my Gus. He's going deaf and a bit blind as well. I have to jump up and down wave my arms and shout to get him to come to the door. They are so good, though! Your pup looks so cute in the cat bed.
Hugs,

What a sweet boy Casey is. I'm glad he's got you to love him and have so much patience with him. He has a new bed I guess!

Daisy and I send LOTS of hugs to Casey. One of the most difficult times in my life was watching my darling Harper go downhill.

Re writing due to poor spelling (sorry)
Your dog is beautiful. I had a little dog who passed away in 2008 aged 16 and 9 months; she was deaf in her old age and learnt simple hand signals from me.
Your dog looks happy and content and as you say he is loved; that is all you can do for him.
Your blog is new to me and very interesting so I am now a new follower and surely hooked.

Oh dear, give Casey a chin rub and a hug for me. Hope he gets better soon! Hugs!
