This sounds like it could be Spondylosis maybe.

He does not seem to be in any pain. Just as happy as always. Just a bit scary since he seems to be getting worse in a rather rapid pace frown ..or perhaps I only think he is since I am now paying much closer attention to him. Going to the vet on Monday morning, hopefully she can shed some light on what is going on.

I think that's exactly what that is. My Max has this too, and the hunched part is exactly where there are bony changes on the xray.

Get a good diagnoses because there are two main possibilities (DM) Degenerative Myelopathy or Spondylosis. The DM is autoimmune sort of like MS and can be treated not stopped. Either way early diagnoses is important.

My Max has had Spondo for almost 6 years and has done well. It is not a death sentence and there are things you can do for any discomfort.

Thank you for saying that. It's so hard to see them age and notice things getting harder for them.

But despite his issues - he still manages to get into a bit of trouble..he was trying to stealing food of the kitchen counter last night. Which DH promptly rewarded by giving him a pice of the food he was trying to steal eyeroll

Actually, there is no reason it couldn't be both. However, with pro-active care, there are lots of things you can do.
