I know this stems from one night when we let her out and she couldn't seem to find her way back to the front door. I love her to death but it has gotten to the point where I need to put her in another room when I am doing my housework as she is always underfoot and I have stepped on her more than once. Not fun for either of us

When I first moved in here, before he went blind and deaf, my best friend lived in the townhouse 2 doors down. He used to go sit in front of her door waiting to be let in because that's the apartment he was used to coming to when we used to visit her.
    It is hard to see our furry ones age, my folks Missy the 12 yr old bassett hound has been going deaf and it breaks my heart because I remember going over there and all I would need to do is call out her name and she would ARRRROOOO and then roll over for a tummy rub. Now we approach her from the front so she can see us, but she is just as happy nonetheless...

    Sorry bewty! I missed this post.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Unklescott , gabriel and Uncle David...Thanks so much for the hugs and words of encouragement. It is so hard watching our furry lil loved ones change so rapidly....we rely on them to always be there and it is hard to grasp when the circumstances change and our routine with them won't ever be the same.

    I'm with Prhoshay, I would have paid to see that!

    I was looking for something and found Rosie's Santa suit. Well its been a few years and she's put on a couple pounds, so it no longer fits. I put the hat on her and the LOOK I got was priceless. She kept it on for about 30 seconds glaring at me and then started pawing at it. I took the hint.

    I'm sure Joey is thinking: "wait until he goes to sleep and let me see how HE looks in the bow tie and hat!!!"

    Loved that picture! Made me chuckle out loud! Our critters put up with so much crap from us...and they still love us!
