Last night as my dog, Alston got annoyed with me not sitting still and he left the bedroom. I made the comment to Jay that Alston was becoming a grumpy old man. Then it dawned on me that Alston was nearing 8 years old. It is hard to believe that as far as doggie life spans goes, he is old. He has really changed in the past year. He has become grumpy and very secluded from my husband and me. He is very content laying on the couch downstairs by himself. When he was younger he was very much a lap dog and a cuddler.
Please keep in mind with the next part, I am pregnant and hormonal.
Last night I started to think about how he was entering the last stages of his life, and I am not at all prepared for that. When you have a puppy sometimes you wish the time away, saying that you wish they were older and calmer. But now, I wish he was a puppy again.
