A letter from my aging dog

You think I’m not the same dog anymore? Did I become slow and boring? Is everybody telling you that I have changed?

Well let me explain few things :

If I don’t play with you as much as I did before , it’s not because I don’t enjoy your company anymore . I still do but my body is weak and frail and I just want to sleep or lay comfortably by your side .

These little accidents i have inside the house sometimes, they are never on purpose. Remember how clean I was all my life ?

If I don’t come to you with a wagging tail like I always did whenever you called me it’s not that I have become stubborn, I just can’t hear anymore…

If I walk around the house aimlessly knocking things down, I have not become stupid or dump, I simply can’t see anymore.

When I wake up at night and start crying don’t get mad at me and punish me, I might be in pain…

I always loved you and will love you till the end, please understand I have not become a bad dog,

I GOT OLD just like you will one day .
