Justice the Dalmatian
A lot of people ask me, "How's Justice doing?" Well, she's twelve and a half years old now. She barks at any noise that happens in the house; even at me coming down the stairs. So we bought an anti-barking collar that shocks her when she barks. Now she just growls. She pisses her bed and shits on the floor once in a while. Somedays she is senile. This morning she was acting all weird. She came upstairs, which she rarely does and stared out the window in the front door. I put her outside and she just stood in the driveway in one spot staring. It was a little cold outside and usually she likes to come back inside to the warmth, but I had to coax her to come back inside. Sometimes late at night she comes upstairs too. She looks frightened. She takes Glucosamine and Chondroitin Sulfate, Nzymes and a multi-vitamin daily. I think I'm going to start giving her Gingko Biloba to help with her dementia. Justice enjoys sleeping by the fire of the wood burning stove as she twitches and growls in her sleep. She's chasing rabbits in her dreams or maybe squirrels. She's a good dog.
