Do dogs get dementia?

.........



Do dogs get dementia? I studied zoology and vet science but nobody mentioned memory loss in pets...which is reasonable. I mean, how can you tell if a dog goes into a room then forgets what she went in for...?

I ask because I suspect my dog, Susie, has it. She gets excited and starts asking for dinner as soon as it hits late afternoon, I feed her at 5, then she asks again once or twice during the evening, getting all excited, skittering around and acting for all the world as if she hasn’t had a crumb. It is really annoying that she forgets dinner because I’m blowed if I can remember whether I’ve fed her or not.

The painting is getting very exciting...I’ll write it up with step by step photos on the “On the Drawing Board” page.

The latest two...

Tapestry woods (102 cm x 102 cm)


Blue trees (102 cm x 102 cm)

The exciting thing is that I’m learning to embrace ambiguity, and have discovered that painting is all about INVENTION rather than trying to find a series of different subjects to paint. YAY! And COLOUR knocks my socks off. I LOVE making colours buzz and burn and sing together...it really excites me...and unlike chocolate or alcohol, you can have as much colour as you want and nobody has suggested it does you any harm! So far...
