We keep holding on but we both know

So sad. 😦 My animals have always been my best friends. Always. I have never had to put one to sleep. I did have to give my cat away but I know she went to a good home. This is different. I’ve had my dog since she was 7 months old. She is 17 now. I don’t want to let her go. ::crying:: 😦

She means more to me than anyone. She doesn’t even live with me. She lives with my mom. That doesn’t make any difference. I will miss her so much. I can’t believe this is happening. I don’t know when it is going to happen. She isn’t in pain so nothing has to be done NOW. But eventually she won’t be able to walk. That (or pain) will be when it is time. I think it will be soon -within a month or two- but I don’t know.

The vet did suggest surgery. Who puts a 17 year old dog through surgery??? I must admit, if money were no object, I would consider surgery. But that won’t be happening. I have to take her back to her regular vet this week because her kidney and liver blood work came back elevated.

😦 😦 All I can do is cry for now…

Quote of the week:

Dogs don’t know about beginnings, and they don’t speculate on matters that occurred before their time. Dogs also don’t know — or at least don’t accept — the concept of death. With no concept of beginnings or endings dogs probably don’t know that for people having a dog as a life companion provides a streak of light between two eternities of darkness.
