Getting old is not for the faint of heart

My poor puppy. Yesterday he had to have teeth removed and things on his neck lanced and things around his butt trimmed….there is no growing old with dignity anymore, is there?  On the plus side, he got good drugs, he can still see out of one eye, with all the hair removed from his ears there is every chance he will at least pretend to hear when I call and he got to be cuddled all night under a quilt while sitting on my chest snoring. And he is milking it for all it’s worth.
