My Woodstock has been suffering from arthritis for close to a year now. However, within the past few months, he has also developed a fusion of the lower vertebrae that makes it extremely difficult for him to walk. Often he just lies on his side with his leg in the air (believe it or not, he's more comfortable that way). That doesn't stop him from hobbling across the floor at treat time or grooming daddy to tell me he loves me.
Last night Woody was on the floor relaxing so I decided to sit beside him and give him a pet.
He was so happy to be with me that he decided to give daddy a nose bath. You can see the little pink tongue going to town on my nose.
