Please bear in mind he'd just had a bath so was still damp and not brushed yet. He is also blind now so it was hard to get him looking towards the camera that's why my hand is in the shots and they're at a weird angle. Otherwise I can't get a pic of his face because he keeps his head down and turned to one side.

The brown staining on his white won't come out. It's quite bad round his eyes but I tried stuff to improve it to no avail. He sleeps most of the time with his tongue out so that's why it looks so dry and he has a lot of staining. He really has aged :-(









I don't normally post any pics of Cookie anymore because I am aware of how different he now looks and it makes me sad.

Awwwww Marie he looks GREAT! Sweet little old man. You have been such a wonderful mum to him all these years. It's really hard to watch them getting old, but he is aging gracefully and well. :)

Thanks, I worry people will judge because of how he looks now with his staining and stuff and he kinda looks bedraggled. But it's just age. He had just been bathed there because he was sleeping in his own pee again. He wets himself now. He's very sweet and loving now. His personality has changed for the better.

Oh I think he looks adorable! I just love Senior dogs. My dream in life is to one day have a canine nursing home.
Kitty I have a great friend in St Louis that does this.
She actually rescues only senior dogs and often times
provides end stage care. I can't tell you how much I
love her and admire her for it.

Marie I think Cookie is beautiful and would always
love to see pictures of him! ( Cute nails too btw! )

He is beautiful, and so are you for taking such great care of him.
His pictures made me teary eyed, but not because he's old, but
because he is with you, relaxing with his mom, who he loves so
much. So many people re-home their dogs because the dog is
old, has health issues, and they don't want to deal with it all.
That is heartbreaking. You on the other hand are sticking by your
commitment to your friend, and doing the best you can to make
sure he is happy and comfortable. You are a good dog owner and
a perfect example of a real friend. I hope Cookie and you have
many more joyful memories together. Take care.
