Things are looking bad bad bad for bear bait. This morning her right rear leg just gave out and she ended up spayed out on the floor, desperately struggling to stand up. It was horrible. Then this afternoon the leg went out again.
I've been discussing my bear bait situation with people today because I'm just trying to get some clarity on what I need to do so that I do the right thing and one woman tld me that the day she knew it was time to put her dog down was the day she knew the dog was never goign to get better.
Also, I think bear bait is in pain. She is only eating her dog food if I am standing by the bowl, and something tells me she is doing it just to make me happy. Just like no matter how large of a dump she makes in our back yard she will manage to squeeze out another dump within the first 3 minutes of a walk because she thinks of it as a requirement. And even though she's ten I still tell her what a good girl she is everytime she does it.
I've got a call in to the vet, and I am going to phone my BIL's wife (a veterinary assistant) this evening but I do think that bear bait won't make it to the weekend and I'm completely sick over it.
