    When the three of us have been at it all day, worked really hard, taken a hot shower and have almost an hour before dinner.

    That looks wonderful to me but you appear to be missing someone!

    Thanks for noticing that Cappy wasn't in the picture. Sadly, I don't have good news to report. He's lost 7 lbs in the past 4 months and now weighs under 80, his lightest weight since age 11 months when he was 82. He's no longer able to get up on the bed on his own, and even if he could, I wouldn't allow him there because of his bladder weakness. It breaks my heart when he comes to the side of the bed and nuzzles me. I have to pretend to be sleeping. I'm sure he wonders what has happened and what he's done wrong that his life is crashing in so many different ways lately.

    He was at the vet last week and there's little we can do for him other than make his last days or weeks comfortable. He's on 50 MG of PROIN 2X/day to try to control the almost full time dribbling. I'm holding off on giving him Rimadyl until I know that he really needs it. He also takes a homeopathic "anti-leak" liquid supplement and just recently we added a 1/2 tsp of apple cider vinegar to his evening meal to try to help him through the night. We'll start using a diaper on him before much longer, I'm afraid. As it is we'll have to replace every carpet in the house.

    It's just not fair.

    But we all make the same deal when we bring a pup home ... don't we?

    Give Cappy a Big Hug and Kisses!!! Zack can't get on the bed either, unless Jim is home to put him up there. It does break your heart.

    HUGS to you all!!!

    I am so sorry Jim. I noticed he wasn't there too. Will Rimadyl help him? Sorry to be a nosey parker, but it made a difference to Kassa. I know different thing but I struggled with not wanting to give it to her. As I have struggled with Erns having long term pred, but sometimes it is about quality and letting their bodies make their choices.

    Good thoughts you have Cappy more than a few months. How are you feeling?

    Oh Jim, I am sorry to hear about Cappy. Poor sweet boy. Give him a big hug and smooch for us too. I will be praying that he has more good days that "not so good" ones and that he is able to spend his remaining time without much pain and discomfort. Carpets and rugs can be replaced. The love and devotion of your dear companion is immeasurable. {{HUGSS}} to both you and Carol.
    Love JL. Justlabradors.com!!!
