Linda, I'm so sorry to hear about Shreddy. Our Winston, also 18, went pretty much the same way. It just got to the point where he lost his will to live. He didn't eat much toward the end and started to have labored breathing pretty much all the time.

We knew it was time. You will know when it's time as well.

It's hard to say goodbye to our furry friends.

Taxy, you are in my thoughts and prayers. I am going to miss Shreddy too - as we have gotten to know each other here, we have gotten to know each other's families as well, and that includes the fur-kids. {{{{{{{{{{{{{Taxy, Stirling and Shreddy}}}}}}}}}}}}}.

I'm so sorry to hear about Shreddy and Dan the cat. They were fortunate to find themselves with your families. Anyone who opens their heart to a pet takes on the burden of having to say goodbye at some time. I'm sorry this was your time.

I hate to hear about the loss of any animal. It's does leave a void. Sorry.

Wouldn't that be a hoot if they weren't??

"Pet Policy/Rates: Responsible pets arriving with their well-behaved humans are welcome to stay with prior approval. $15/pet nonrefundable fee applies. Advance reservations required."

(I like the wording on that.)

I would probably request that a fee for children be required also! Refundable of course. (Ducking and running!)

Here's another B&B in Belgium.

Shreddy hasn't eaten much since we came back from the vet. I'm hoping that changes when the pain reliever kicks in. It was surprisingly easy to give it to him. I cuddled him for a while, then I took hold of the scruff of his neck and tilted his head up. I squirted the liquid in the corner of his mouth and that was it. He swallowed it with no complaints. He didn't run away when I let go of him. He stayed for some more scritching.

He has decided he wants to explore the yard. He used to act like he had agoraphobia. This is a surprising development, but encouraging. He has lost interest in so much.

This sounds promising, that he wants to explore. It's hard to eat with a sore mouth, hope the pain reliever works!
