Mandy May Be Going To The Bridge Today

I can't believe I'm typing this. Mandy has had hind end weakness for quite some time. We've been managing it with medication, acupuncture, and physical therapy. Over the last couple of days, she's gotten much worse. Tonight was horrible. She collapsed trying to get up from her bed and seemed to have no use of her back legs. I walked her around the condo for a bit, thinking maybe her legs had just fallen asleep. She was asking to go out, so I took her outside. Then it was a nightmare getting her in. I live on the fourth floor with no elevator. She kept collapsing and I had to carry her up most of the 39 stairs. When we got inside, she could barely move -- she just stood there, panting. About an hour later, she has finally settled down, but she won't even eat one of her favorite treats. She keeps giving me a look that makes me think she's tired and ready to go. I'm just not ready to let her go. :brokenheart

 

Please think good thoughts for my sweet girl. I don't know what I'll do without her.

 

Here's my favorite picture of her:

My heart goes out to you. My girl is having same type of issues...several vet visits, different opinions and nothing. We always end up in the same place.

 

You guys are in my prayers.

very very sorry to hear that, we lost one of our dogs not so long ago, she had been a bit off and had been to vet a couple of times then seemed a bit better. I got home from work and looked at her, she was waiting by gate for me and thought I'll get changed and rush her to vet, she walked out to shed and my husband called me and she was gone before I could get there. She did her best and waited for me to get home to say goodbye. It was a very sad day for all of us. A couple of hours before I got home she was running around the yard.
