If you are fortune enough to still have your dog in his senior years, he may start to suffer from age-related hearing loss (ARHL). It is very similar to what human’s experience as they age that causes many to get hearing aids. It is very hard to watch when your dog no longer responds to your voice or is aware of the sounds around him. This can also create a very dangerous situation if your dog doesn’t come when called or wanders off.
If you have a small dog, he/she is probably a gorgeous dog you love with all your heart. A cute little lap dog that keeps you company and has the sweetest kisses. A canine companion that is the center of your world.
However, many small dogs have a reputation for being yappy and demanding. Some are even described as “tiny terrors” and “prima donnas”.
So, tell the truth: is your dog spoiled? Does he have some quirky behaviors you cater to? My friend has a dog who doesn’t like concrete so she carries her across sidewalks.
