Default geriatric question

Ok this is the first time I have had to deal with a dog getting old. My parents never let me have a dog until I was in 8th grade, when a small helpless puppy wandered up to our porch in the rain. After desperately trying to find an owner we were allowed to keep her (Molly). Well I am now 26 and Molly is 13 and not living with my parents so Molly and I don't get as much time together as I'd like. Onto my question...I have noticed that lately, she has gotten very neurotic almost. Like just whining for no reason, asking to go out CONSTANTLY, and just sort of wandering around the house like she doesn't quite know what to do with herself. She was diagnosed with congenital heart disease and takes daily meds for it, and I know that she might not feel like her old self, but can dogs go senile? I just want to make her happy and I have a hard time doing it lately. SOrry this is so long, but thanks for reading....
