well my 10 year old puppy is a puppy no longer. she's finaly getting old. the spring in her step is fading. she doesn't keep up on as well during our morning runs.

yesterday a friend took her out to the park to swim and play and this morning she couldn't even roll out of bed for breakfast. Sad

any suggestions for keeping her older years happy? she's a rottie. not overweight at all. she's small for a rot, only 60lbs. super dog! smart, friendly.

i feel sorry for my friend. Crying or Very sad

Purina has a nice article about caring for your older dog on their website. It talks about things like regular check-ups, diet, exercise, environment, and maintaining a daily routine. Here's the link.

Dog Fancy also has a article on their website, Tips for Managing Symptoms of Aging.

I wish I could be more helpful.
