Silly old dog

As my friends know I have a lot of pets, three of which are dogs. 2 of my dogs are getting older, mom is 14 and son is 10. They are such silly old things. Kayla is blind and mostly deaf, when she does hear something she goes crazy barking. If it wasn't so funny to watch I would get upset with her for barking (I don't like barking dogs). She spins in circles when she barks, she just started this and I think it's because she doesn't know where to aim the bark at. Her son, Peter, has been very healthy all his life. Recently he has become accident prone. Just over a year ago he had eye surgery to remove a growth, a week later he had emergency ear surgery to fix a haematoma he got from my 4 year old dog. Less then 2 hours after having his cone removed from that surgery he gave himself another haematoma in the same ear, again emergency surgery was needed. Yesterday the silly old girl barked at something she heard waking her son up causing him to jump up fast. He hit his head on the wood stove and gave himself a deep cut under his eye. Blood flying and those silly old things running around scratching my new wood floors barking hysterically, it took my husband and I almost a half hour to calm them down enough to see how bad he hurt himself this time. He was so close to getting his eye.

We had a pup who was quite a klutx too. He actually let the screen door slam on his tail. Of course it was broken, but we didn't realize it until it was too late to set it. Forever after, if he wasn't holding it up on purpose, it stretched out about half way then dropped straight down!

That is sad, the poor thing. My male had his tail broken when he was about 3 years old. He was sleeping behind the computer chair and my husband didn't realize it and rolled over his tail. Now the top 3 inches of his tail points to the left. Not that you can tell because he is long haired.

So do I . I don't think he could handle another surgery. After the last one he started walking into walls and falling over. He eventually got over it and is back to normal but it took a long time for him to recover.

My younger dog is a 4 year old Australian Shepard/ Kelpie cross. She is already crazy. She is very hyper. I took her to the vet when she was a year old because she ate my curtains. The vet said she has separation anxiety and the doggy version of ADD. She is a great dog for my son because she never runs out of energy but she drives me crazy with her constant need to move around.
