Our lovely boy, as handsome and grumpy and all himself as he is, is 13-1/2. (pugs live 12-15 years on average.) His body is starting to give out and he’s looking mangier, sleeping more, and is losing control. So we’re in the “manage the symptoms” of age stage right now. It’s not easy, mentally or physically, for any of us. We’ll keep on keeping on. Loving him and helping him.
