Hate to be bummer but wanted to share that our beloved family pet (my brother and I took over care when my parents needed a break) seems to have had a stroke and we are taking him to the vet. sad.gif Always sad when a pet starts down the path to the great Doggy Play Day beyond. He's about 90 in human years but was playing like a pup just yesterday. We are taking him to the vet today.

Here is a pic of him frolicking in the snow. How I'll always see him. smile.gif

Very sorry to hear that Todd.

We're just about to take our 1 yr old siamese cat to the vet as he's been in a fight and has hurt his eye.

Oh man that freakin sucks! I feel for you man, watching your dog go down is watching another member of your family go down.

I'm sorry Todd, I know it makes you sick.

I'm sure he's had a good life and well cared for, that's what truly counts. Sounds like he's already lived a full life, with lots of love, so have no regrets and hold onto that. All the best for his recovery or peaceful sleep.

So he's 15 years old (90)? That's longer than a normal dogs life span (average 10-13 years), he must of been well looked after.

Particles and energy can never be created nor destroy - therefore will always live on, in this lifetime and the next.

Memories will always hold true.

Friend lost his puppy a few days ago sad.gif an incurable disease that was most probably carried from the puppys mother, not much could be done.

After the loss we spent more time and he tried to keep himself busy so he could stay away from depression. It seems to work too, saw him today and he looked better.

He's 12 pushing 13 so he's getting up there. He has had a life full of pets and play but we hope we can get him back from the vet and give him some more smile.gif Know more on Saturday.

Thanks all for the posts. It really is like watching a member of the family start to fade. He's at the vet overnight but hopefully will be back chasing squirrels by end of the weekend smile.gif

Sorry about that Todd.
I had to deal with that a few years ago. It's never a fun day dealing with that.
Good luck man.

Damn, I'm sorry to hear that Todd. That dog looks great smile.gif

It may not be bad news yet.. we've had 2 dogs have strokes and they've made a good recovery. The one that most recently had one is now back to full health and she's 14. At the time, we made sure they had rest and were undisturbed as much as possible. Make sure their bedding is as comfortable and conducive to good posture as well. So many dogs have bedding that promotes bed posture and leads to stress in their joints and muscle pain. Anything that lets them lie fully out stretched is better than cramped conditions.

Their tastes regards food might get a bit more picky as well for a short while. But there is a good chance he can make a recovery so fingers crossed !
