I've been trying to contact a vet who does house calls. It's gotten to the time to put Shreddy to sleep. I've been crying all day. I don't think it would be a good idea to try to drive home after that. Also, Shreddy hates going in the car and I would really rather not put him through being put in the carrier and then a car ride.

You could try farm vets. My SIL works for a horse vet and he has made house calls to put down dogs and cats.

I am so sorry to hear this, Taxy. At least his last few weeks were good with his little jaunts outside (good for both of you).

Sending you big hugs!

Oh Taxy, so sad. {{{{hugs}}}}. I hope you can find a vet.

Goodbye, Shreddy, sweet dreams.

I am making crabs, starfish, sand dollars and other shells....out of chocolate. I need at least 100 of all different sizes for a sand castle cake I am making for Saturday. I haven't worked with chocolate for a long time and it is fun to get back to it. Tempering is a pain, but to be honest, the small breaks and bubbles just add to the charm. They are sea shells afterall!

I was told by a nine year old when she saw the design of the cake and the chocolate shells that I better put a do not touch sign on it. I decided if she was thinking it, the many kids that will be at the banquet will be too so the sign is already made!

Oh Taxy...I'm so sorry. That brought tears to my eyes. May Shreddy have a peaceful trip over the Rainbow Bridge.

I'm so sorry, taxy! I hope you find your vet who will help you take care of this at home.

I would think it would be readily available considering the circumstances. I'm sure others have had this problem with not wanting to have to travel during such a stressful time.

{{{{{{{{{{{{BIG HUGS and TEARS}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}}

Thanks for all the kind words and hugs. Yes, my regular vet clinic gave me the phone number of a vet who works at the clinic one day a week and makes house calls. They also gave me the number of a service that will come to the house if I can't schedule the vet who works at the clinic.

Aw Taxy, my heart broke just a little more because of your sadness. I know exactly what you're going through. Hug Shreddy tight and whisper sweet words to him. He'll go out knowing how very much you love him.
