Well Coco , to me , I can see that Miss Ali is slowing down on some things , yesterday was the first day she would not jump up on the couch and lay by my wife to get her rubs ,she looked pitiful , so sad in the eyes , she did eat yesterday morning ! I fixed her a chicken Breast on the grill , boy did she like that
but last night , nothing . I fried her up a pound of ground turkey , turned her nose up on it , I donít blame her , it didnít look good to me either
Now the unreal part , I bring her outside and we have a new girl , she goes out and plays with her ball , she chased a buzzard that flew over the house yesterday morning , then last night , same thing , she lays on her rug and looks around , she even brought me her ball and barked at me to throw it , so I did , just a few feet , she walked over and got it , then laid down and chewed and chewed it . We are sitting out side now as I type , he laying on her rug . But as I said , I can see the decline in her .
We just can not get over how one day , she is chasing Mr. B down the hall , then around the couch and in 2 weeks , we are about to lose her .
As far as family , first iíll Start with Kadin , this is a tear jerker here , the other night when we were trying to hand feed her , he stood on the other side of the table and stared at her , then he started that whining at her , in the above video I took of him stealing her ball , that was the sound he made , but he did for several minutes , wife said he is trying to will her to eat , I agree with her , he will not take his eyes off of her , lays by her , walks with her , he knows something is bad wrong with her , he loves her so . Then last night , he went all out , he was at the back of the dog lot and he started his famous sneak walk , head down , one slow step at a time , right at Ali , Ali was watching his every step , then he will take off in a sprint right at her ,this has happened here may Times and blows up into a big play session , didnít work last night , she watched him blow by and that was it , Kadin just looked at us , what is wrong with sissy ?
As far as wife , itís pretty tuff on her , when Im out farming , Im gone a lot , She is with Ali all day long , giving her rubs or what ever , Ali follows her everywhere , we all know how them Dobers are
Me ? Iím confused , she is throwing so many different signals , I want to do her right , you know ? Like I said , she is out her messing with her ball . And I will not lie , its tuff , I got really behind on my work , but I look at her and just can not leave her to go do it , I did go over to the shop yesterday for a hour and got a hair cut , the right back home .
I did get a call from her internal med vet Monday evening asking about her and if I had any questions to call her , she said she was in disbelief when she got to work on Monday morning and read Aliís report , and the cancer Ali has , tends to be very aggressive.
Then about a half hour later , A ER room tech called to follow up on Ali , said it is just routine and that she personally wants to know about Ali ,she had been with Ali a couple of times before , like I said , Ali is well known up there by most of the staff .
Coco , thanks for asking about Ali
Well for now , we are enjoying the time we have with her. She will be sorely missed by all .
