Growing Old

Mocha’s aging right in front of our eyes, and aging fast.  She’s starting to have problems walking and navigating steps.  J’s had to lift her in and out of the car.  Can’t tell if it’s the hip arthritis, or if the cancer has spread to the spine, but either way it’s not looking good.  I suspect she won’t live to see her 13th birthday in April, in fact I think the end will come much sooner.

We decided to bring her to the beach today since she loves water so much (wish we had done this more often).
