Poor Madison is really starting to show her age. She doesn’t see well, hear well, or smell well. (Eating is still no problem.) She has always followed me around the house all day. Then she would only follow me up and down the stairs in the morning. Now she does the stairs only once or twice a day and it is an obviously painful exercise. When I go upstairs she now waits patiently at the bottom till I return. We are both going to be sad when she can’t sleep upstairs any longer.
