Ive been taking care of my 80 (will be 81 this month) grandpa and his 13 yr old Dashound that is diabetic for about 3 yrs now. The dog needs shots twice a day in the neck, is blind, and fat but has lost some the last few years. My grandpa doesn't drive and hasn't for 3 yrs now so I do all the running around and take him to all the places he needs to go. Even days he pisses me off, I still cant be mad that long but I swear he does things just to piss me off every once and awhile for his own entertainment. Its true once you hit a certain age you start to act like a kid again.
