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?

But I've still gotten them checked by a vet to make sure it's not more. Mostly just so I know how to care for him if it was worse news.
A needle biopsy is you friend Needle biopsy - Mayo Clinic.
