Gosh, I haven’t written about the dogs in quite a long time. Unfortunately, this isn’t a happy post.

Last week, our old man Walter had to get a urinalysis done because he was having a lot of accidents around the house. Specifically, he was peeing in the dog bed he was laying in. Well, the vet called today and the results weren’t the best. He has low specific gravity. This is often the first sign that a pet’s kidneys are failing. Not exactly the news we wanted to get.

Today, he is at the vet all day getting more tests done. They are currently testing for Cushing’s disease. I hope to know more when I go to pick him up this afternoon.

Walter will be twelve in May, so he is an old man. But, he’s my baby boy and he’s the only one I have had since he was a pup. Ugh, this is hard.
