Thumbs up Show Us Your Senior Chi's, Please!

Do you have an older Chi? A senior? A Chi that's, well, let's say 8 or older?
Please post a pic or two and tell us about them. I look forward to all of the
years and different stages I have with Tabitha and Jerry.
Show us how wonderful it is to share your life with a Senior Chi-tizen (Citizen)!

Well you all know my Cookie. He's 14 this May. I got him as a pup when I was just 17. He's been through thick and thin with me. College, my first job, numerous boyfriends and sad break ups lol. Everything.

I love him to bits, he's a bit snappy in his old age and can't move around like he used to. I have to lift him up and down off things. He has hardly any teeth left and he is going slowly blind

Cookie is epileptic but his seizures are spaced very far apart. He went two years before having a seizure recently.

Cookie now


And the old gang. We had Tigger the cat and Benny my other Chi. Tigger and Benny passed away withing a year of eachother. Both were pts in my arms.

I adore Cookie - he's the king.

It's hard to believe that Joie is 9 years old - as best I can determine - when I got him he was 3.

Not quite a 'senior' I guess. He's not slowing down too much, but there is
some greying on his face.

I love him to bits.

My hubby and I rehomed a senior chi 10 weeks ago:
Her name is Hannah Bananas. She is 9.5yrs old.
She has arthritis and luxating patellas in both of her
back legs. No one knew of this condition until 3 weeks ago.
Hannah never had toys,chewies or other puppy things
growing up but she is slowly learning what they are now
and they make her very happy. She also did not know
what play,bath,or snack time was >>>she knew having lots of litters
and staying in her cage nearly 23hrs a day. She now
enjoys her life, seems happy and we spoil her rotten. We
call her our little Diva. As of last week she started playing
on the bed with Ralph,Jasper and I, she takes short walks,
and loves chewies and don't even think of leaving her out
of bath time or grooming time. She loves it all which
warms our hearts. Hannah is loved like never before!!!!
She makes our home complete.
