I'm sure the vet will do his/her best for Smudge, whatever that is.

Not sure if s/he can do the same for Shrek, though

Is Shrek poorly or have you had him on a diet?

PF, so sorry. It's so hard to watch our fur babies get older.

I just realized that we all have come to love Shrek as much as we do PF. And the two fur babies? Well, what is there not to love?

Thank you everyone. Smudge is snuggled next to my hip, trying to get comfortable. I'll have to move soon to get dressed and get her into the carrier. This is going to break our hearts.

Our big guy Ollie is going lame. He's 12 and diabetic. Not sure how much longer we can keep him around. He stays downstairs all the time now and has trouble getting up off the floor. Every week we think "Is it time?" but he's still wants to be with us, has a good appetite and doesn't seem to be in pain. He's been such a good, loving dog we hate to say goodbye. We've never put down a pet before. They always went on their own.

Sorry to hear that about Ollie, {{{Jabbur}}}. I find when it's their time, they let you know.

Sounds like it's not time yet. It's such a hard thing to have to decide. (((Hugs)))
