Some photos of the Wilby pets who are getting older and so developing all the problems old age brings!
Mack - attentive as always but living in a quiet world! He no longer hears very much but they don't do hearing aids for dogs!
Poor Gemma haas developed diabetes and so has to have two insulin injections a day! We can cope with that, but sadly, the disease has given her cataracts so she has gone blind! It happened very quickly so she didn't have much time to adjust although she is learning to cope better now. Gemma's Page
Dogs can fly!
Jet - who is old and wise and so no longer flies anywhere! She has a thyroid problem which made her go VERY thin but having been prescribed tablets (two a day - she has them wrapped up in pate which she likes!) is now more like a cat and less like a bag of bones wrapped in fur!!
Old age isn't much fun but it sure beats the alternative!!!
Sadly, "the alternative" has recently caught up with some of our furry family. Gemma died on Christmas Saturday, December 27th and Jet left us on February 1st. 2009.
Mack will now be getting spoiled!
