I have been dealing with a sick Yorkie. If you have ever had a sick house dog, you know that they can trash a person's living quarters. They can't help it. Especially if they are old. A Yorkie's life span is between 10 and 15 years. Lily is 13. I consider myself lucky to have had the pleasure of her company this long.
I've done all I can do for her. She seems to be getting better. Time will tell. But her illness has left me with doggie bedding to wash, floors to scrub and carpets to shampoo. After that there are baths for both dogs. And because I am not as young as I once was, the clean-up takes time as well. I will be back as soon as my household is back to normal - whatever that is.
