Our Soft Coated Wheaten Terrier is 14. Tonight is rainy, cold and she is struggling. I gave her a buffered aspirin and am hoping for the best. I just can't see her getting through another bad winter, and I think it is slowly dawning on me that her time is coming. She was bad in late spring, but then had a great summer. Very few bad days.
I would never be selfish and keep her around longer than I felt was humane and proper. I won't see her in pain. In the past, she rebounded from bad days. She and Emma play bitey face every morning, when she is feeling up to it. Just have to wait and see, take it day by day.
Labby told me once, to talk to her,and ask her to let me know when it was time.* I did and so* now I wait... and pay attention.
If you fellow dog lovers could say some prayers for her or send some good, healing thoughts her way, I would be grateful.
Here she is buried in a pile of leaves. The kids raked and gathered them and she promptly ungathered them
I'm sorry to hear that Molly is struggling today. Hopefully tonight is just weather-related. Sending good healing thoughts for her. Cyber hugs to you and her. Please keep us posted.

Molly is beautiful. It gets very difficult when they start to have a lot of bad days, doesn't it!
Won't someone please feed me!
I am sorry to hear about Molly. I didn't know you had another dog. She is beautiful, Susan. She will be on my thoughts. I hope she is just having a few bad days.
It is nice to hear she gets along well with Emma and they are friends.
Sending lots of feel good thoughts to Molly!
My pretty girl, Lexi!
Thanks everyone. Hugs back atcha Jeanne...yes it is hard to watch them get old
We actually were prepared to put her to sleep last fall. She was fading fast and rarely got off the sofa. Then along came Emma and snapped her right out of it. She felt needed I guess. She took great interest in this wild little pup, and felt it was her job to whip Emma into shape. And she did a great job. She started acting like a kid again herself. Bitey face, wrestling, she even learned to swim, which she had never wanted to go in the pool before Emma. I just wish dogs life spans were 2x longer than they are.
that would be wonderful but I still don't think it would be enough.I just wish dogs life spans were 2x longer than they are.
It is nice to see the younger dogs keep the seniors lively. My mom's 14 year old was staying with us for the summer while she recovered from knee surgery and he really perked up and enjoyed the youngsters...he had a spring in his step and a gleam in his eye when he was here...
Nice that Molly got some extra spirit this last year with Emma around...
