Wiggle - Day 2,798
Poor Wiggle hasn't had the best week.
He's wobbly, which is old age but he was unsettled in the morning before I went to work which worried me so I made an appointment for him to see the vet. Thankfully, I was able to keep an eye on him with the Panasonic Smart Home system while I was at work and he did eventually settle down and sleep.
His skin has been bad recently and one area was inflamed which may have been the reason so he was given antibiotics but unfortunately they made him sick so I arranged to get an alternative prescription made up.
Wiggle hasn't been sick since yesterday and has now decided that he would rather have his breakfast in two sessions, which is fine, but worrying as he usually loves his meals. But the reality is that he is an old dog now at 13 years and 4 months.
And that reality breaks my heart. Wiggle is such a special boy, to me, he is The Best Dog Ever but as much as I love him, the reality is that he is slowing down and our time left together is not the amount of time I want.
All I can do is love him and care for him and enjoy every day we have and hope that we get lucky and have plenty more...
