I guess it is time that I add my little one's name to this forum. At 16, she has run the gauntlet of the old dog ailments and is now pretty much blind, has had a bout of Vestibular disease, pancreatitis over the years. diagnosed with Kidney disease a few weeks ago and the back legs are not working as well as they should, but she was motoring on as best she could. In the last few weeks her appetite has decreased quite rapidly and her little frame is looking quite bony. Today she has runny motions and is looking poorly. I'm watching and waiting to see if things get worse as all vet clinics are closed today - can call a number for emergency cases only. I can't put her through too much more.

:( Sad to read ... although hopefully you've been able to get her to the vet today (why do problems always come up on a Sunday?), and get some answers for her. She'e obviously been getting the best of car and love from you to have got to that great age. Sending positive vibes to you and Stella.

Thanks, Tassie. We made the decision to let her go peacefully this morning. It was just her time. We knew it was coming for a while but today we are heartbroken.

Knowing what is the best thing to do doesn't help much with the heart-ache does it.

What a dear little dog she is.

I am sorry.

:cry: RIP dear Stella. Heartbreaking to let them go, even when we know it's the right thing to do. So sorry to hear.
