I knew Copper wasn't doing well and I have said that before here.. But the last week and a half things havent been so good for my old girl.
Today I was down on the floor clipping toe nails and decided to clip of her Coppers that was bothering me how it was growing. A few of you had made comments about her toenails and I did answer that. She dosnt like her feet touched at all what so ever. up until the last year and a half she took care of it herself by running around... Now they just grow.. It just broke my heart when she let me clip it with out fighting me. I decided to try another and the she did fight me so I let her be. Shes having a hard time with the stairs her legs don't work like the should and just looks her age now.. She also smells really bad :-X .
We had the talk and she sat there and looked at me and would wag her tail every now and again..
I really think we are counting days maybe weeks now.. I know in my heart shes not going to make it to the new year :'(
Thanks for listening and letting me spill my heart out.. I don't have friends who understands..
I am so sorry. It just brings tears to my eyes. She looks so sweet in your signature picture. :'(

We are all there for you. It is never easy to let them go. ((((((((((((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))))))
(((hugs))) It is a very hard when they get to this point. Is Copper on any type of pain medication? When I realized Ginger had slowed down and looked so sad, I put her on Rymidal. I can say it gave her a few more GOOD years.
I am so sorry. I had tears in my eyes reading your post. It is never easy....believe me..I know. But remember, Copper knows she is loved & that is so important. Enjoy each day with her. She is a sweetheart. (((((HUGS)))))
