Hanging Out In Corners...

I just wanted all my friends to know that now that I'm 13 years old, there have been a few changes in my life. A few months ago I suffered a stroke, but don't worry, I made a good recovery! But I seem to be hanging out in the corners of my home alot. I don't know why... I just sort of end up there. And my close up vision isn't as good as it once was, but I can still spot a cat or a squirrel, or bird from across the street! I still let em' have THE BARK when I see em'. So anyway, my mom did some research (I'm not really sure what that is, but she's always doing it) and found out that I have what most people know as a kind of doggie altzimer's disease. My dad says, "Her body has outlived her brain". My mom and dad found out that there's a new drug called aniprl that could help me. I'm taking it now, and even though there hasn't been a big change yet, in time there might be. It's an expensive drug and some dogs don't tolerate it or have some house training lapses ( and no one likes that!), or vomitting, but most dogs improve after at least 4 months. Meanwhile, even though I'm getting up there in years, my life is still pretty fun. I go on walks every day even though I have some arthritis. I take Deramaxx for that and it has helped alot, I love my food, I still love my humans and I still love to wake up my dad in the middle of the night for no reason (he falls for it EVERY TIME!) But I thought some of you may want to know this information in case some of you may be having these same symptoms.
