growing old

I had to take Jasper to the vet today becaues he is having trouble walking. Jasper, aka Jazz, aka Jazzyfur, aka JJ, aka Big J. Apparently he's got arthritis pretty bad in his back knees and hips, particularly the right one. It's odd to think that he's getting old. Since Calvin died last year, Jazz is pretty much my last tie to my "old life", before marriage, before it's bizarre to think that he may not be around much longer. He's a good boy, a bit of a grump with other dogs, but so very loving to people and oddly accepting of cats. Poor old guy. Hopefully the meds the vet prescribed will make him more comfortable in his old age.
