Jed had just misjudged a jump onto a chair which he normally would not have bungled up. He was just a teensy weensy bit banged up and i felt so sorry for him and felt sad that he's growing old and maybe making mistakes now.
Jo: It's so sad that he's growing old...
Sister: At least he's having the chance to grow old, and not like Prints. (my previous dog who died suddenly at the age of 7)
