I've always had more than 1 dog at a time so never really noticed changes as they aged. Now that I just have Callie I notice everything such as her sleeping more than usual, hearing not as keen (not barking at door knocking), trouble going down stairs because her eyes don't seem to be as sharp. She's 11 or 12, not sure of her age when I got her. Is this normal behavior? Her appetite is still good.
I first realized something was wrong was, when I feed my birds, she's like a short as soon as the refrigerator is opened. This is because she gets special treats at the same time. Now, she doesn't even know they're being fed.
I'm just trying to reassure myself that she and I are just getting old together.
