Doggy Update

We think she had a stroke some time between Monday night and Tuesday morning.  She was worse last night when I got home, had a hard time keeping her feet under her and just basically zoned out.  She was a little better this morning mobility-wise and when I checked on her at lunch she's gotten a tiny bit more of her personality back.  But overall, it's like about 90% of my dog is just gone.  She goes through the motions like she knows she's supposed to be doing this things -- eating, expelling waste, sleeping -- but she doesn't remember why.  Hopefully she will continue to improve but unless it's a dramatic improvement I won't leave her like that with no quality of life. 

Some hard decisions to make in the next several days.

  1. Oh my goodness. Not what I wanted to hear. :( I hope she improves. Your girls are just too cute and I don't want you to have to make any hard decisions!

    I'm sending out TONS of positive vibes to your little baby!!

  2. I am so sorry to hear about your dog. I hope everything will be OK. They bring us so much joy but they are designed to break our hearts.

  3. Thanks :) She continues to improve as the days go by. Which means she's now back to most of the annoying things she does. Like pace between the living room and kitchen for two hours at a time. So far, I'm happy about that. Another couple of days and the honeymoon will be over!

  4. Oh good! I was sort of stalking your blog today hoping for a good news update!
