Getting Ready to say Goodbye

Oh Gosh, Not Today!

I took Abby out this morning to poop, she pooped and then she just sort of put her butt down on the sidewalk and vegged out. That was unusual. Especially with the Cushings, food / breakfast is All Important. After about 5 minutes, she got up and came in for her food. I gave her the Zubrin medication ( 2 tablets instead of the 1-1/2 that we'd given her before). She took the meds and then breakfast. She ate it all, which indicated good appetite. But then, she was very itchy on both sides, and agitated, just walking around, following me everywhere, licking rubbing scratching. That was a few hours ago, and she's calmed down a bit now, but Dawn, my wife, says that it's time. She said that Abby told her last night. Of course, I'm asking for one more day. "It's Sunday, the Vet is not available". We've had lots of tears, and we're just going to see how the day goes.

The Bridge is great- I promise. And Abby will wait until you get here, and be so happy to see you again

The hardest thing is to say goodbye to someone you love. It can also be the most loving thing, when there is no hope of recovery.
