Well, it seems that Blue has Degenerative Myelopathy :( He hasn't been able to get up on his back legs at all the last few days but we help him out when he goes to the toilet and in the house he gets around pretty well by dragging his legs behind him on the slippery laminate flooring.

On Friday he is going to have acupuncture and I will pick up some Chinese herbal remedies. He is still very bright, aware, happy, good appetite...........it just isn't his time yet. I'm not ready to let him go :'(

Here's my special old boy (16 1/2 years old )

No point to this post really, just wanted to share my beautiful, elderly gentleman.

AWWW..he is sweet! He needs some wheels ;D I hope he isn't in pain,
Hi Blue... *stroke stroke* You just take it easy and let mommy help you. :)
Had thought about wheels but he gets around really quite well as he is. He has bad arthritis as well so, yes, he does have quite a bit of pain but also on daily Metacam and monthly Cartophen injections.
Awww...What a cutie :-*
Blue is adorable!!! :-* :-* :-*

Love his eyes. I hope he feels better soon. Good thoughts to him and you.
I love the seniors. That is such a nice picture - look at those eyes.

I hope the acupuncture and herbal remedies help, and thanks for posting his picture - I enjoyed!
Hoping the accupuncture and herbs give him some releif from the pain
He has a beautiful face :) Hope he gets relief from the accupuncture and herbal remedies.

Glad you shared him with us :)
Oh Blue! Smooches on your sweet nose!
Hang in there Big Guy!! :D
Oh, Blue, you sweet old thing! DM is such a frustrating condition. If you'd like some info on DM, this is a link has some very good info.

This is link shares the experience of the owner of a dog with DM, and what she did to help her dog.
Hope he gets some relief. It is so hard when they get old. :(
What a precious face.
Maddie sends her love and hopes you feel better after the herbals Blue.
Feel better soon Blue!! :-*
