My Sweet Old Ceasar Is Gone

My sweet,old Ceasar is gone how my heart aches. I know i had to let him go but now that he's gone i can't help to think "should of i waited longer?" When am i to know when the time is right i'm not God. His daddy was a coward & didn't come to be with Ceasar his last minutes on earth. I had to help lift Ceasar back legs into the car & when we got to the Vets Ceasar couldn't get his back legs to move right so he could get out of the car. It made me so sad & i know it upset him , he was crying as he tried, so after 20 minutes of trying to coax him out & trying to lift him I ended up having to drag the sheet he was on to pull him out backwards as his back end fell slowly to the ground. :( He was a big boy still weighing over 150 lbs. We including Dr.Annie stroked him & talked to him for 30 minutes or so while he was under the anesteshia. Then my 5 yr old daughter Rain & i cried as his soul left his body we hugged & kissed him good bye. Rain kept crying "but i'll miss big boy"! I told her "I will too :(".
I pray dogs really go to heaven because I know his beautiful wife Cleopatra & handsome son Caleb, daughter Dizzy & his kitty siblings Fuzzy & Elvis were waiting to welcome him at heavens gate.

Ceasar's daddy has decided he has to let go of his 1st furson even though it so hard to let go of something you really love. He told me it was ok to call the Vet to make arrangements. Ceasar health has been declining over time. He has a major problem with his spine he can rarely hold his bowels. His back legs constantly give out. I'm waiting for the Vet to call me back to see exactly when the day will be set. I know we have to do this & i knew it was coming soon but i can't look at the Big boy it hurts to much, i'm even having trouble looking at his pictures. ={

Ceasar been having lots of accidents in the house I was wondering if that is due to his back end starting to give out more & more. I know as you age it harder to hold your bowels. I've tried discussing to Ceasar's daddy about Big boy not being able to function or get around soon but he doesn't seem to wanna discuss it. Every time Ceasar gets up its a struggle & he scrambles to get up from the floor. He never yelps out in pain. We can't take him for walks everytime he goes a short distance his back legs collapse & one day we're afraid he won't get up again.

I am not doing that good. Last week my 4yr old sister Rain told mommy "Daddy had to help Ceasar get up, he fell coming out the door and his 2 back legs crossed over each other & he couldn't uncross them daddy had to help him!"
:( I feel like I'm walking on stilts with my back 2 legs. I'm still trying my best to keep up. I've lost so much muscle in my legs & back. Its not easy for my love ones to see me struggle to walk some days but they know I'm a trooper.

 

9 Yr Old Great Dane With Hip dysplasia & Arthritis

We've been treating Ceasar with glucosamine with chondriotin not sure how much its helping him. Considering his arthritis is getting worse as the days go by, on top of his hip dysplasia. Sometime he just hop's on his back legs when he's outside. He can't back up now without his rear legs collapsing & can't stand without one his rear legs shaking from the Arthritis. My 4 year old daughter tells me in the morning " Mom Big boy sick hurry up & give him his medicine his legs are shaking" :(
Its hard watching his condition get worse as the weeks pass. When I look into his eyes now they don't look like that young ,energetic guy I used to see they look sad & tired to me now.
:(

 

Ceasar back legs are getting weaker!

Ceasar just turned 9yrs old on Dec 22nd 2007. His back legs never been the greatest he's never been able to stand up and greet you like our other Danes have been able too. He falls very easily sometime when his son Snoopy runs up to him to try play Ceasars back legs just collapse from a push then sometime they'll just give out while he's just standing there. This has been very heart breaking.

Dr.Annie said Ceasar was a angel the night he stayed to get neutured. His surgery went good no problems. He seemed depressed & tired the first three days he came home but after that he was back to normal maybe even with a little more energy.

March 7th Ceasar will be getting neutured . The vet believes he may have a tumor in one his testicles. Removing the testicles usually resolves any problems if the tumors biopsy results have any cancer cells in it.

Ceasar went to the vets about a week ago. The vet does not believe he has a hernia in his one testicle she believes its a tumor. So the vet took blood from Ceasar to make sure he's not having any other health issues since he is 8 yrs old. The blood results came back fine so we will be scheduling a surgery date.
As far as his back legs giving out the vet said his back legs were getting thin. She checked his reflexes in his back legs and there slow. The vet thinks it can a spinal issue. She said it tends to happend alot in large breed dogs like German shepards. If he has this theres not much they can do about it.

Ceasar just turned 8 yrs old Dec the 22nd. We noticed for the last few months his back right leg will shake sometime uncontrolable. The vet said to start him on glucosmine. He may have arthritis. Now when I gave him a bath thursday evening I noticed he had some swellen around his penis & one of his testicles is larger then the other. So we think he now may have a hernia. Then just a couple days later now his front paw swells up. This is like the secound time its done that also his other dane house mates paws have swollon up before it always one dog at a time. Then they take predinisane & antibotics and the swellen goes away. It still a mystery to us why this happends to them because the vet will look at the paw & theres no signs of injury. Anyways we started him on predinisane & antibotics for his swollen paw but will be going to the vet hopefully today for bascially 3 things.
