Thank you all so much.

It all seemed to happen so fast. Is it a dream? I fear not.

Sunday all was well, she was zooming in the park, doing rolls of joy, like she
could live forever.

Monday, she was presenting like wobblers, with head held low, back legs
faltering.

Tuesday she had one of her episodes like no other, except her panicked running,
jumping and slamming was causing pain to her tortured body even more. She was
crying out and it took me three hours and lots of meds to get her to come out of
it.

She didn't have a very good night. When I got home from work Wed she came to
greet me and basically fell flat with her legs splayed out. Her back was all
hunched up, and when we tried to move her she yelped.

I promised Swilly that I would never leave her in a painful state. It was
obvious the gabapentin and tramsdol were doing nothing.

So we were off the the vet. He is pretty certain the cancer has progressed to
her brain, and the episodes are seizures. He said we could do a catscan and put
her on really strong pain meds to keep her down, but there was nothing we could
do about the episodes.

I couldn't put her through any more. She loved me and trusted me so much and I
had to say goodbye. It was very peaceful, she was such a good girl, right to
the end.

I have to go, I'm crying, I had ordered her some new stuffies and they just
arrived at the door.

BTW, they will be doing a necropsy for me. And then my journey will end.

Condolences to you and your family, it is never an easy decision to make and you gave her a wonderful life. Share the stuffies and love your other dogs, knowing she is looking down at you ever thankful for all that you ever did for her.

Poor girl

It must have been hard for you to make that decision, but brave as well. A lot of people hold their dogs close to them for too long. From here, it seems like you did what you needed to do, and loved her as hard as you could.

Take care of yourself.
