Som's jerk-face teenager phase is hilarious reading
(because it's not happening to me this time, says the former kitten owner)

My dog is 18 - he sleeps for about 23 hours a day, wakes up to eat, poop, drink half a bowl of water and go back to sleep again.

God that sounds like a great life.

Maybe for a few days. At 14, my cat transitioned from 20 hours sleep / 4 hours of zoomies to that schedule and it was an early symptom of abdominal cancer.

We adopted our pup when he was 1 year 7 months old. He had had basic training that we buttressed dutifully and we figured, because of his age, that we had avoided the teenage months, but nope! As he started feeling safer with us, started relaxing and gaining confidence, he would have these bursts of willfulness that were too adorable to correct seriously. We'd just laugh and help him not get hurt. We talked to our trainer about this and she confirmed that shelter dogs can go through periods like this as they acclimate to a new family, regardless of their age. It lasted for about a year. He's 5 now and, of course, perfect.

Sorry to hear that.

I'm prepared for the eventuality that he's about done with things. At 18 he's far outlived his expected lifespan as a happy and pampered good boi.

I am going through this right now, I forgot that puppies can be as excruciating as human teens.

Our mini-Aussie is turning 4 in Sept & is FINALLY calming down a bit.
He's still suffering some OCD issues but he's on the spectrum & always will be.

Aussies = Border collies cranked to 11 (maybe 12)

Cats on the other hand...
Two of our three can be summed up perfectly in this picture - both 13 years old so well past any developmental milestones. One is a cynical emo goth, the other is rainbow bright on crack.

Our pup is ~25% aussie and about ~5% border collie and that's plenty for us, thanks.

My dog will come when called, if you have food. If you don't have food? LOL.
