Satchmo having forty winks. by 

This dear old boy is 13 years old, blind and quite stiff in his back legs now, but really enjoys life to the full. He loves his food, enjoys walks, but not every day, never stops wagging his tail. Just generally full of enthusiasm for life. Of course, now and then he needs to have a rest on the sofa.
He is a Spoodle (spaniel/poodle cross). He has a great nature. Very loving and gentle.

Photo taken with Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ15.

    Poor thing. I feel so sorry for older animals as they age and have problems getting around.

  • Thanks Karen. Me too! Satchmo is a very happy dog though, and never stops wagging his tail. We watch him carefully though and silently worry, as he ages.

    It’s so sad to watch them growing old.All we can do is give them our love and be careful not to let them suffer. I’m sure Satchmo relives all those great , fun times in his dreams,safe in the knowledge that he is so loved!!

  • Thankyou very much for your beautiful comments. So kind of you.
