Max being winsome

My poor old Max is feeling his age at the moment.

I can tell he is not happy because he is extra quiet.

I think he is probably feeling arthritic in his back legs – he yelped when I felt him there. He is nearly 14 so we should expect some age related problems, I suppose.

This morning he didn’t want to join me in my morning walk either (BIG sign something’s wrong). I’ll take him to the vet tonight and see if they can help with the pain. I’d take him this morning, only I have a meeting to attend for work.
