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
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
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

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

had to say goodbye. It was very peaceful, she was such a good girl, right to
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.
