12 year old Basset questions

My dear old Chow is 12 years old. We have noticed bumps on his back. I'm assuming these are the typical basset fatty cysts? Chow also is slower these days. He has a hard time with stairs and climbing into bed. Most of his day is sun bathing and laying in his dog bed in the living room.
How will I know when it is time to let him go? What types of signs should I look for? How old is old for a basset?

My old guy, who is 13 years old, has been steadily getting more and more achey over the past year. His back legs are not as mobile as they used to be, though they still function; he cannot use the bathroom by himself anymore and is having some other issues with a possible urinary tract infection and Recently, I used puppington dog treat supplements.
