The vet had said that sometimes they can determine which lobe of the brain has a tumor based on the direction of the circling. Marta is just getting worse and worse; she is not present in her mind / body anymore. I think I need to start working my thought processes to being ready for letting Marta go. It isn't fair to her in that she is always confused, "lost", or agitated if she is not sleeping. What "quality" of life is that?? The largest problems with her circling and pacing is that she runs into EVERYTHING because she can no longer see. I also cannot leave her unattended inside by a watchful eye for very long either since she will go to the bathroom whenever and wherever. Poor thing.

Between Marta's problems and MoJo's liver disease it is very overwhelming and tiring and hard to get a good night sleep since it does not go uninterrupted. Lately I bet I am woken up every 1/2 hr to every hour by MoJo and then Marta in between. It is even harder because I know MoJo probably won't last much longer either since what is left of his liver is probably deteriorating daily. "Puppies" are supposed to live longer that that!
