The other day my oldest human brother came downstairs and I heard my Mommy say. "Wow! When did you get so tall?" He's always been tall to me so I guess I hadn't noticed but how did mom not notice? I think it's because she sees him everyday and the change is so gradual that it just isn't obvious until...well, until it is. Has this ever happened to you? Maybe your human siblings are growing up and don't want to play fetch as much anymore. Maybe you don't want to play fetch quite as much anymore. Some days you're just too tired and maybe your hips hurt sometimes. Maybe it's a little harder to see the ball. It's probably nothing so you just play fetch less. It's not really that big of a deal. Right? Maybe your mom and dad don't even notice; it's just too gradual to see.
Growing up and slowing down happens to everyone - it happens even faster to those of us with 4 legs. My mommy has been working with the doctors at Stone House to create a Senior Care Package. It is a group of tests that will help your Mommy and Daddy know what's happening as you get older and help the doctors see any changes that occur over time. This way they can work together to make sure we are happy, healthy and pain free! (That means more games of fetch.) The package even comes with a big discount because the doctors understand how critical it is to monitor gradual changes before they become obvious!
This is a special new thing and I hope that your Mommy and Daddy will call and talk to Stone House about it. You can read more about it here: http://www.stonehousevet.com/senior-care-program.html
Wishing you many more games of fetch!!
