How old is your dog? You immediately reply with human years, but dogs age faster. Large breeds age faster than small breeds, but for all of us comes the day when you see a grayer muzzle, a limp in the step, a slower response to your call.
Most of us don’t think of walking our cat, and our cats rarely sit at the door begging to go out. In fact, most cats will resist mightily your attempts to share the outside world with them.
