Let them be
Sometimes all your senior dog really needs is to rest. There are times when they don’t want to be bothered. Let them be. Allow them to enjoy their time for themselves. Just be sure you’re there when they need you and you keep them comfortable all the time.
Love them more
Whether you like it or not, even when you know you’re never ready for it, senior dogs’ years are numbered. Spend as much time as you could with them. Play with them more, care for them more, hug them more, and engage them in activities that are not too strenuous for their age. Your dog knows how much you love them but this is the best time to reassure them of that.
