Achy Bones Jones

I made the old guy pose for me this morning so I could give you an update on how he’s doing.

Curtis seems to have arthritis in his back legs. Some days are worse than others. We started him on PhyCox which he likes eating and I like to tell myself I’m seeing improvement though it’s been less than a week.

Curtie’s spirits are good. He loves boondocking. He doesn’t ever want to go back to an RV park where he has to be on a leash.

    I hope the meds will help him. Our senior cat and dog both have arthritis too. Curtis looks like such a wise ole soul in this pic. Hugs Curtie!

    What a sweetheart. I love that picture. Nothing is more beautiful to me than an older, well loved dog. When our sweet Buddy began having joint pains his doctor put him on Tramadol. It seemed to help ease the pain on “those” days.

      We’re hoping to avoid something that strong, but if it comes to it we’ll do anything for our guy. :)

    Great pic of the ever stoic Curtis…you can almost read his thoughts…”OK Mom, I’ll pose if I have to, but don’t take too long!” Hugs to you all.

      Exactly what he was thinking.

    Oh Cutis! He’s so cute the way he poses sweetly for you. It’s tough getting old, but he’s lucky to have such nice humans that care for him :)
