|After reading the thread on what constitutes a senior dog I was wondering what are signs of aging if the age is unknown. With Sophie she seemed to be an adult when we adopted her. The only clue to her age at all is the vet saying she has perfect teeth. I would imagine that means she isn't exactly elderly now.
But she has slowed down, but not really...It's just the first years between her fears and high energy she was just gogogo on walks. Now she walks more in pace with me. It's possible that she's just bonded so well that she walks more like a "normal" dog now. Her last checkup was in November and everything was fine.
It's possible too that I'm comparing her to Callie. We don't know his age either but it's been suggested he still has puppy teeth. He also moves amazingly fast for his build. If she's at least five years or so older it's natural she would be a bit slowed down right? Some reassurance please?
