It’s a difficult moment realising your dog is ageing.
Everything becomes slower, but it’s hard to explain.
In the post, which was published on Juniper Fox, the writer describes the way a dog’s eyes become milky, and the fact that they take longer to respond when they’re called.
“No one tells you how quickly dogs age. How one day you wake up and suddenly their face is all white, how their eyes start to seem more milky than before, how you have to call their name a few more times than you used to,” the writer began the post.
Did you know dogs can tell when you’re upset? Post continues after video.
“People tell you not to blink when you have children, but what about the dog who was with you before your children were even thought of? The dog who was by your side before you found the love of your life, the dog who jumped from apartment to apartment in your early 20s. No one tells you to cherish every moment you have with them…” the author added.
