Sounds like there are either health issues or could be dementia. Did they check thyroid levels? Maybe do more blood work on him just to be sure. My Toddy is 14 1/2 and is pretty well deaf with some degenerative myelopathy, and spinal arthritis. Rimadyl has helped as well as twice monthly visits for acupuncture and spinal adjustment! Toddy would sometimes have fecal incontinence, but hasn't occurred since he started with the acupuncture. Best wishes!

Deb and Jane, Sparta made it to 13 but was still very spry and healthy but  for the cancer I thought he would have been a lot longer. His hearing had failed quite a bit but it was great during thunderstorm season because he couldn't hear them. Our Standard Poodle made it to 18 but had pretty severe dementia. It sure is tough watching them get old. Cherish the time you have!

Awwww Deb, I know what you are feeling. I have Teddy my rescue who is at least 11. He can't hear and has started marking or peeing in the house. I was just thinking if a belly band would work???? He has also lost weight but is healthy according to the vet. Wish dogs could live much longer...Wynn is on a diet and only lost 8 ounces in a couple months...he wants food and will get into anything he can:(

Hello Corgi Lovers,  My Gretzky just turned 12 and he is certainly slowing down.  He is so food obsessed ( like most Corgis ) and eats well but he seems to be losing some weight and is shedding so much I feel he'll have no hair left soon!  Could this just be a sign of old age?  We give him good food and treats and fish oil.  He is on a 1/2 aspirin a day for his joint / leg issue.   He drinks tons of water and then needs to go out a LOT.  He was marking on dining room chairs and carpet so he wears a "Belly Band" ( doggie diaper) in the house now.  He does not have diabetes or urinary issues as we have had him checked out.  He's in good spirits but it's hard to see him decline. :(

I am so blessed. . .Sid just turned 10 in August and he is so full of energy, he puts the others to shame. . .LOL He is the pack leader and they all follow him around like puppies. . . .

Just checking in to see how all the senior corgis are doing?? Blaze is 10.5 and has fully recovered from his eye removal surgery. I hope and pray we have a few good years left, it is sad to think about though. I guess it just reminds us to enjoy every minute we have with our little furry angels.

Hi all! Just joined this group as my Cardi Gus is almost 13. He has lived almost 7 yrs with disk problems and is mostly deaf. He seems to get a lot more tired on walks but really enjoys just laying on the deck or 'helping' when we are in the garden or doing yard work. And of course he is still about about food-- his and ours:). Skritches out there to the elders.

can't believe my corgis are almost 9! times flies!

They are beautiful Steve. My Sparty is almost 13 and just beginning to show his age. He doesn't always hear the treat jar open! However, he still loves his walks and is in good shape for his age.

That is both of them below. Sometime around 2005
