King and I
On paper and in my head I'm working on several post topics this week. But most of my head and heart (and time and energy) is devoted to King this week. Granted it's been a while since he ran circles around me when we go for a walk, but I didn't realize thirteen is old for dogs 'til I took King to the vet for a rabies shot last month and she categorized him as geriatric. I'll try not to attribute cause and effect to my change in attitude and his health. But his health is failing. The news from the vet is that we're apparently looking at end-of-life care. The good news is that, with pain medication, he's getting around okay and eating specially prepared meals. The bad news is that pain medication is obviously not a cure.
