Nitro is 9 years old now. Oh my god! 9! How did he get here?
I rang his vet this morning. I wanted to check when his next check up is due.
She told me to bring him in in april. He gets a check up every six months. She said if I am worried about him to bring him in sooner.
She asked me if he’s losing weight, I said, no, quite the opposite. I think he’s gained some weight.
I’m not actually worried about him at all. He does have a little lump on his ear, its like a wart, but the last time he was at the vets I got her to check it. She said it was nothing and if he was ever under anastetic she’d remove it then.
He’s in good health. I think he’s getting a touch of artheritis though poor guy. He can still run around though, and he can still jump on the bed, so I don’t think its that bad.
I hope he is going to live for at least another 5 years. All going well, he should. I just cannot imagine my life without him in it and I hope I don’t have too for a very long time.
