The Dirty Old Mutt

Goodness, Cheech is getting old. I believe he's 13 this year. He's starting to slow down become a bit more grouchy! On top of that, he's become incontinent.

When we moved here, we kept Cheech outside. After breaking through two leads and the temperature going from insanely hot to insanely cold, we decided to move him indoors. That was going good until the newest aging development. Most mornings, Daniel gets up to find that the kitchen floor has once again turned into his urinal. I've had to mop the floor 8 out of the last 10 days. Now, my kitchen floor has never been cleaner but it's taking me away from doing other things.

What to do, what to do? Daniel and I have decided that the old boy needs to live out the rest of his days out doors. We're looking for a kennel to put him in. It's either that or put him down. We've decided against the latter because he still has more good days than bad. Hopefully, he'll be happy living the out door life.
