Your senior dog has given you so many years of love, loyalty and laughter. For the next few years (I hope lots of years), you may need to take a few steps to help their senior years be more comfortable for them.
Start watching your senior dog and see if they seek out the warmest spot in the house. Whether they are chasing a sunbeam or lying on top of the heat vent, our older dogs naturally want to keep their older, stiffer joints warm and supple.
TIP! We use those polar fleece blankets as an extra dog bed cover. Not only are they warm and cozy, they wash easily and come in a bazillion colors at a great price. Plus, if your dog is a vigorous fluffer (as we call ours who take bed fluffing to an aerobic level exercise), they get extra exercise.
Keeping your senior dog warm and happy takes just a few extra minutes and offers them years of toast comfort.

Dude, he means no disrespect.
It’s a basic tenet of the Dudeist ethos to just say “$#%^ it.” Your Dudeist dog is probably too much in the zone to be bothered by something as chill-busting as going all the way outside to poop. As long as he doesn't poop on the carpet that ties the room together, it's all good.
For over 25 years I have shared my life with French Bulldogs. Yep, way before they were popular and the ubiquitous, go-to darling of media, I have had snorting, snoring little fat Frenchies. While they have many wonderful, endearing traits, there is one aspect of life with Frenchies that is not so much fun. They can be hard to house train.
