Thanks a ton for the condolences.
Lucy truly was the best pal ever. She did get to spend her last few weeks with her sister Ruby which we could tell she loved.
Ruby is a great close second and has really enjoyed all the attention she gets now.
Already spoiled into expecting dessert after dinner.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and DITCH the brake !!!

Yes, there is such a thing as NORMAL
, if you have to ask what is "NORMAL" , you probably aren't !

Failure may not be an OPTION, but it is ALWAYS a POSSIBILITY.

Second saddest day of my life, but she was worth every penny spent.
She lost control of almost all her functions and would not eat/drink on her own.
Best pal I ever had.

I feel for you. My boy is getting long in the tooth as well. I dread the day.

As for the $$$, I understand that as well. I'm giving him Adequan injections, which has worked miracles on his arthritis. He went from collapsing trying to get up 4 steps to the porch, to running 25+ mph and playing again without even stiffening up at night afterwards. Not bad for an old man. I never thought I'd spend money like that for a pet, but this boy is something special and has the whole extended family wrapped around his paw.
I love sanding.
