Thanks. Za-Za is not leaving today, soon, but not today. She's had two good days and she's not in pain (and I'm not ready).

It's time. Za-Za and I are spending the next few days cuddling. She's getting lots of good treats. Dr. J. will be coming on either Thursday or Friday. After a glass of wine, I was able to write the email asking when she was available this week. Fortunately, Za-Za is not in pain and is still eating, peeing, pooping, interested in life, barking at me to help her get up. But, when you have a 125 lb Saint Bernard who can no longer walk (it is a degenerative problem) and you are on a limited budget and know you have to go out of town at the end of April, well, choices are limited. And, when it is a degenerative disease for which there are no drugs that really help improve things, you have to say good bye. I have never been one to make the knee-jerk decision to say good bye if the dog was not in pain. She's not in pain. I am in pain, but she is not. LP--hugs to you. I know how hard it has been and how hard it is to come home and put things away. To think 24 hours ago...a week ago...I've walked this path many times, but this is the first time the dog has had a degenerative disease. The other times the reasons were cut and dry. This time, it is really hard. She is also the last one of the pack...I'll miss her so.

We always wish we had had "one more day." I'm taking those days and holding the memories in my heart.

Having had to scoop up and hold two cockers and a dalmation in order to potty them when their back legs didn't work anymore, I totally understand, CWS. Bless you and Za-Za.

CWS sometimes it is very difficult to make and carry out the right decision. Give AZ Az a hug from me.

{{{{{{{{{{{{{CWS & Za-Za}}}}}}}}}}}}}

You are both in my heart, thoughts and prayers. I am so thankful that the decision of putting Joie down was taken out of my hands. I know how hard it has been for you. We decided last Friday night (Feb 22) that we would have to take him in the morning and the decision was taken out of our hands at 2:15 am when he slipped away peacefully in his sleep. Violet found him and woke TB.

I want you to know I am here for you. I know you are taking time away but if you see this, please feel free to PM or email me at any time.

Enjoy your time with her the best that you can. I know that won't be easy but she will be happy just to have you there.
