Adopted 2 senior dogs/ any advice? [View all]

I crossed posted this in the pet forum but thought someone here might have insight...

A small black dog, Maltese size and attributes. I have no idea how old she is other than she is a senior. She is blind. Does anyone have a clue how old she might be? I thought because of the blindness someone might have a semi educated quess. The couple of weeks here, she ate about 1/2 cup of food a day but this week she won't eat more than about 1/4 of a cup. Of course all she does is lay around and want me to hold her. Which I do.
The other one is a minature schnauzer, her sister. The guy who surrendered them rescued the Maltese one in 2007 & never knew her age, the schnauzer he had since a puppy. She's 12 and starting to lose her sight. She's adjusting very well and in typical schnauzer fashion, is having no problems with food.
They also had another "sister" but she had already been adopted when we found them.
They had been in the shelter ( a no kill) for 2 months.
Our other 3 dogs are slightly jealous but adjusting.
Does anyone have any advise or insight?
