The Dog Charmer
Dear Dog Charmer,
Momo is my sweet, funny 17-year-old, 17-lb Coton de Tulear. I adopted him 10 years ago after retirement.
Spunky in spite of his age, he is somewhat fussy about his food but eats a healthy meal midday and loves his treats.
He is rewarded with a different one each time he comes inside after going out to do his business—usually 4 times a day. Momo sleeps more now that he is aging, but he is otherwise healthy and content.
He is friendly with everyone but follows me from room to room when I am home—which is most of the time. And he seems anxious even if I’m out for 5 minutes to pick up the mail—pacing from room to room, apparently looking for me, according to my husband.
I love the little guy, but he has developed a somewhat unseemly behavior in the past nine months.
