We have a 9-year-old Westie, very social and likes lots of attention. We also have an 11 1/2-year-old Newfie.
She sleeps most of the time but sometimes needs a little boost in the rear to help her get up! Shes 115 lbs. and very sweat as well!
Need early morning short walk, dinner time relief, and before bedtime. Both are used to someone being home most of the day, but fine alone for 3-4 hours!
The Westie needs more pottie times!
They love early mornings on the sun porch before it gets too warm!
