Our 15 and 1/2 yr old mixed breed rescue boy...Shadow...is failing fast.
We had been ready this time last year to put him to sleep when Aidan came along and he snapped out of his decline...responded to his Gluc pills and was loving life again.
But ...he is now refusing to eat...he will eat a bit of Ruby's puppy food but even that he throws up. He has had several accidents in the house..which is so unlike him. His large hip tumor is getting bigger and he just does not seem to be enjoying life anymore.
I had the talk with him tonight so we shall see how it goes. When he lets me know it's time...I will honor his wishes.
We got Shadow when Jeffrey (now 17) was just a baby. This is going to be hardest on him. I'm just glad he has Aidan.
Thanks for any good thoughts..prayers...anything for a good, old, loyal dog.
Oh Susan...I am so sorry to hear this :'( :'(
Shadow was looking so perky at the Lab Fest. Such a sweetheart
Sending you lots of prayers and good thoughts.
I don't pray often, but tonight I will be praying for you and your family. I know you face a difficult decision and you will make the right choice for Shadow. I'm so sorry that you all have to go through this. But I have a lot of faith that Shadow understood the talk and knows he will see you again. Shadow, I wish you peace and comfort.
