Elderly dog

I am taking care of my older dog, who has elevated liver levels on his bloodwork. It's really tough to give him his medicine, but I get through it. He has an ultrasound scheduled for next week. He is such a sweet little dog - a miniature poodle. I love him so much. My late husband loved him too and it was mutual. I'll take it a day at a time. He still likes his daily walks and he loves to get cuddled.

They give us so much love thru out their lives,when the time comes for us to prepare for their next journey its always so very hard. I just lost one of my "guys" and I always draw strength from knowing that I'll see them again,happy and healthy and waiting to greet me at the Rainbow Bridge. You are doing a wonderful thing for the little guy, my thoughts are with you.

Thank you. After I give him his medicine and before, I cuddle him and rock him and talk sweetly to him. Thank you Lee for your support.

His name is Augie and he is 14 (approximately). He was adopted six years ago as a senior dog then. We got him from a shelter. He has always been healthy and strong.
