I love the dogs that never act their age.

My dog is six and acts like a puppy.

374

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

Unfortunately my dog has just turned 14 and really acts his age. Mopey, rarely energetic, barely wags his tail and sleeps a lot but the good thing is he still hasn’t lost his love for food.

u/christo334 Sep 29 '22

Tell him he is a good boy for me. Spend as much time as you can with him.

104

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

I’ll tell him you said so thank you :) and in the few years he has left I plan to spend as much time with him as possible! He really is a good boy so I want him to be relaxed in his retirement years lol

And record him, film him, take lots of pictures of him! You're going to want those when he's gone! When I had to put my baby cat down (she was 13 lol) I wasn't very prepared, but the vet rescheduled the euthanasia for the next day last appointment so I would have as much extra time with her as possible. I stayed up all night with her and we just hung out. I video recorded her as much as she would tolerate, and I took a hundred more photos of her, and we spent the rest of the next day letting her eat all the best foods that she could never have, and I cherished every heartbeat with her. Now I'm so glad I have all those extra videos, pictures, and recordings of her snoring! I miss her so much, but I now I can still rewind time a little bit and see her in my videos.

16

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

Bless! I’m so sorry for your loss! It’s such a bittersweet story but I’m glad you have those pictures to remember your cat by. <3

You’re right though memorabilia is important and I’ve already prepared for it. I have a couple hundred pictures on my phones with only about a handful of them being me and family, the rest of my boy :)

u/Theamuse_Ourania Sep 29 '22

u/fuckreligions Sep 29 '22

Bless you <3 Mine just turned 17 a few month ago, hes still as daft as he was as a pup. But unfortunately slowed down alot and is alot more needy then he was before. Also he doesn't walk in a straight line anymore. Which I know is sad, watching them grow old. But I just think he looks adorable walking to the side a little. He's so funny 😂

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

Aweeee! I hope the best for you and your dog he sounds like a sweetheart and you sound like you really love him <3

u/azure_monster Sep 29 '22

I had a fourteen year old dog, and she was acting like a puppy all her life, until suddenly she stopped being that active, we assumed it was because she was lonely from the quarantine, but then three or so weeks later we had to put her down because her heart was failing :(

Many dogs are just lazy at that age because they're that age, and have a long time ahead, your story just reminded me of my dog, I miss her 🥲

4

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

Awe bless! it really sounds like you gave your dog a really good home when she was still with you and I’m so sorry for your loss <3

9

u/RamenJunkie Sep 29 '22

It came and went with my dog. She would act like a crazy puppy, then somedays we were sure "This is it, she will be gone tomorrow."

We did finally have to have her put to sleep sadley, but she was around 20 years old, so plenty of years.

u/shabadabadabada Sep 29 '22

hasn’t lost his love for food

When my old pup started refusing to eat was when I knew things were bad. :(

21

u/ElleKayB Sep 29 '22

If he is overweight, that is why. Also had a 14 year old lazy, fat dog. Put her on a diet and was surprised at how young she acted, hated myself for not doing it sooner.

15

u/Flirret Sep 29 '22

He is getting quite big lately I think it’s time he goes on a diet. He’s always loved his food so we started giving him more as he aged and I guess we just never cut back on how much we gave him. He whines when he isn’t fed a certain amount but if it makes him more energetic I think it’s time I man up and put him on a diet!

7

u/ElleKayB Sep 29 '22

Yes, it was so hard to restrict her eating. You just want your old dogs to be happy and they think food makes them happy, but running around and being able to go up stairs makes them happier.

Got a twelve year old jack russel who goes from lazy couchpotato to spinning around the yard at the mention of a tennis-ball. Its really a sight to behold.

Couchpotato... "Hey, hon, did you buy the tennis balls yesterday?" Dog leaps up and starts spinning around. "Where's the ball?"

u/LordCharco_iii Sep 29 '22

Mine is nearly 14, and you could easily mistake him for a 4 or 5 year old. Especially if you ask if he wants to go for a walk.

u/MrsLoki12Odin Sep 29 '22

My 15 year old dog is almost entirely deaf and blind now and runs into everything. But she still loves to play with her 4 year old doggie sister a few days a week. And pee on my floor. Apparently old age means you can do whatever you want.

Has a beagle.

Can confirm some dogs never act their age, and always act like a puppy
