is it time for him to be put to sleep he is 16 years old, for the last year he has started weeing and pooing all round the house, we have took him out and when we have got back he has gone upstairs and pood in the bedroom, he frequently toilets on the stairs no matter how long he has been out, recently he pood right next to me, today after been out i noticed he had peed on the sofa cushions, sometimes he has tremors which last a couple of minutes then pass could this be related, we have a new grandson who is ready to start crawling but the dog has ruined most of our carpets round the house, and it is starting to smell, we have tried keeping him in certain parts of the house but he howls as he normally sleeps at the top of the stairs, and he will toilet anytime. we love scamp to bits but we don’t know what to do
