I just spent 30 minutes on the phone with my vet making contingency plans for my pup. He may make it a few more days....maybe another week, but, his journey is being threatened by failing hind legs.
He's battled cancer for nearly 3 years, endured 4 surgeries, and has been on medication for that whole time....but, we wont' lose him to cancer. We'll lose him to old age.
He's enjoyed a wonderful quality of life for 98 people years, and if I were his age, I'd be in a wheelchair, or dead....so, as sad as this is becoming, it's pretty incredible when a large breed (Rotti - Shepherd cross) can make it to a lap dog's age.
Anyway, I'm just sitting here looking at him....hoping that I can do it for another few days....
