Old Dog Blues

Backstory: Our 14 year old beagle Snickers is nearly blind, deaf, incontinent, and has a slew of age and anxiety related disorders…this email came along with a creepy pic of Snicky staring off into space, looking like she’s thinking about eating your head.

Here’s a pic of Snicky at the Vet for consult to change all her Meds. The long staring into space likeĀ  we know her to exhibit are related to decreased cognitive function they say… Or as papa george Says: She Has. The HAMMER.
Snickers would say hi if she could remember who you were!
Love you girls

      Why the HAMMER? is it an acronym? my 14 year old, blind, deaf, arthritic beagle stares into space as well. but we think he’s remembering his first stolen pizza.

        Yeah…we have no idea what “the HAMMER” means, which is what lead to a lot of the hilarity of the email. huh??? whatever, mom!

        Also, the email actually came to my inbox in the same format it appears here….I asked my mom why she wrote it in “crazy haiku form,” and she said it was inadvertant– she just tends to accidentally hits the ENTER key when typing on her iphone.

      i hope the lack of brain function doesn’t mean she has lost her tickle spot!

      We have a 15 year old Belgian Malinois named Snickers! She’s also mostly deaf and randomly barks at nothing (I think it’s a bit of dementia).
