I am not sure she is a pure Pomeranian but she does look like your dogs, just very thin and frail, we call her "little old lady"
... She'll be 17 in December, gawd I hope at least she lives to that, I have faith if yours are 15 and 16.
She has had a couple of minor strokes, which meant she'd friggen wake at 1am, 3am, 6am, yelping.. Forgetting she can pee, and I'd have to take her outside each time, the first time was horrible and lasted 3 months, I had to hold her up as she lost the usage of one side of her body, still today, when I pick her up, one front leg comes up, the other stays down. The second only lasted a day.
I'm going to the shop to buy those today. A few times she's stepped out of her bed and gone straight on the paper next to it, other times she starts walking and just does it where-ever.. I think it depends if she can think straigth at that time or not.. What' is absolutely horrible (hope no one is eating), is when she does number two, hard or not and walks around in circles (which she does), and steps in it, 3 hrs later when I awake, OMG scrubb, clean, scrubb, clean 1/2 hr later
I would have thought it would have been oldgirldog that woke Set up at 4am, not oldboydog.. They pee anywhere don't they?
