Today I made an appt at the vet to have my big dog put to sleep on Wednesday afternoon. This was very hard for me to do, but I know it's the right thing to do. Cancer has taken over her body. Her legs are swelled from fluid retention. She is now having trouble breathing. Today, Kent had to pick her up to bring her into the house. She is unable to keep food down...she is so thin. This just breaks my heart.
Mickey is like the perfect dog. She doesn't bark. She does her business outside. She goes to bed on her own. She's never gotten into the trash or tore anything up. She is very calm and quiet, but her size let's you know she can hold her own.
This really stinks. I'm not sure if she is going to make it through the night. She didn't have enough strength to go outside with the other dogs. Her breathing is very shallow. I don't think I will be getting much sleep tonight...
No game plan...this is so hard to watch...feeling helpless is right now.
Just needed to talk...all dogs go to heaven.
