Theo is doing well these days. He's somewhere around 8 and a half, and his hips have begun to give him trouble. A few months ago he was diagnosed with significant arthritis, and a daily dose of aspirin and glucosamine seems to do the trick. On the rare occasion when he's missed a dose, it is, unfortunately, quite noticeable.
Although he's become more of an elder statesman these days, he still loves to bark at squirrels and deer, both of which we have in abundance, and his affection for his family is unabated. I'm grateful for his presence in our home.
