Arrival Story:
My family bought Sire from a breeder when I was about 10 years old. They wanted a family dog to grow up with my little sister that was about one year old at that time. We have had him ever since. He is a wonderful dog! I now have him due to a family divorce. My father didn't want him and my mom couldn't have two dogs. She took our other family dog, Jasper, with her. Sire had nowhere to go and he had always taken to me more than anyone else, so I took him home with me. He now lives happily with me, Chloe, and his new brother Bruiser!

Sire is now about 14 years old and is slowly going down hill. Although he is still in pretty good health for his age he does have some medical problems. He now has arthritis. I give him two different kinds of medicine for that. He also has laryngeal paralysis which makes it difficult for him to breathe, swallow, and regulate his body temperature. He is on a thyroid medication for that as well. Sire went deaf about 2 years ago and is slowly losing his eyesight. He still loves to cuddle and he loves to go on walks (although have to be limited). He is my baby and I love him with all my heart.

So, lately I have been getting up in the middle of the night to go pee. I seem to not be able to hold it anymore at all. My moms let me out real real late at night but for some reason I can't hold it until morning. I go about two or three times in a 3-5 hour span. Does anyone know why? Also, I have noticed that my pee isn't dark yellow anymore and it doesn't smell. I thought this was a good thing but my moms seem to be concerned. Why is this? Isn't a good thing that the kitchen floor doesn't smell bad anymore. That is my FAVORITE spot to go too. And the bathroom. I love it in there too but mom has started to close that door so I can't get in at night. I don't know what is going on with me. I am constantly tired and the only time I get real excited and actually get up is when my moms come home or when they have food! MMMmmmmm! Other than that I just lay around the house and do nothing. I feel like I am getting real old. Is my time almost up? I hope not, but I am not sure. Does anyone have advice for me? Or my moms?

Woofs and snuggs, Sire Pire


Not so well

I don't feel well today. It started last night. I had to make mom let me out to go eat some grass. I thought that it might help but it didn't. My breathing has been getting harder to do lately. I have been taking my medications regularly but it doesn't seem to always help me as much as my mom thinks it should. I don't think she realizes how old I am. I mean I AM almost 14! Anyways, I have been eating grass all day long now. I haven't been able to eat much of anything. It doesn't appeal to me. Unless it is my moms food of course! I'm just kind of lounging around today! It is my brother's birthday but I don't feel much like playing. I think I'm going to go back to sleep now. Woof! and a slobbery lick!, Sire Pire
