I grew up with a dachshund. When we kids went away to college and our dog was quite old, she sat at my mom's feet all day while mom worked from home. Mom had no more kids to spoil so she spoiled out dog. :) Princess had lost some teeth teeth and didn't have a great appetite. So my mom scrambled eggs for Princess every morning. Scrambled eggs were soft and nutritious and appealing to Princess. She didn't have significant health issues but was nearly blind. She lived to be almost 17!
