Duchess did the same thing but her situation was different because she also had a brain tumor. She had a few seizures as well. 2 years after we sent her to the Bridge (after being assured from our vet that there was nothing else that could be done), I came across the below article on Dogster and now I wonder if we gave up on her too soon. Either way my heart is broken but I will never forgive myself if that is the case.

I would definitely get a second opinion and I would ask about the above article if you feel that it applies to you.

My Saint never did that but my Great Pyrenees does. It is so adorable but not so much when you get woken up to it.

Duchess was small for the St. Bernard breed too. She maintained a healthy weight just under 100lbs for most of her entire adult life. Once she got to maybe 107 lbs. but then she lost those few extra pounds. The vet said she was fine. Duchess was always a picky eater. I used to joke and say she is a typical girl and likes to watch her weight. As long as the vet isn't concerned and you can't see any bones, I think she is fine. Good luck with her. smile

Would Gatsby eat the powder joint pills if you tried putting them in those pill pockets or pill wraps?

We made the mistake of shaving Duchess one summer. Her fur grew back but it was not quite the same. I wouldn't shave them. Besides, I have since learned that their fur actually keeps them cool during the heat and protects their skin from sunburn. You can ask in the grooming forum a groomer's thoughts but I don't personally recommend it.

I agree with Sabi and Onyx. I can't bear to not have Duchess near me always. I feel some sort of comfort knowing she is someplace I can always see her whenever I want, talk to her and be able to touch and kiss her even if it is only her urn. little angel

Small Dogs > Wld a Yorkie be ok with a Saint Bernard?

The real question is would a Saint Bernard be ok with a Yorkie? laugh out loud Duchess used to play with the neighbor's dogs - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel and a Yorkie. The Yorkie used to play a little aggresively, the Spaniel was pretty mellow. Duchess was such a gentle dog that she used to let the Yorkie do whatever she wanted. Duchess was the same way with our cat. The cat would jump all over Duchess while she would try to nap and again Duchess didn't do anything. If Saints are trained properly, they truly are gentle giants.

Everything you described is exactly how it was for Duchess in the end. Except she wasn't blind, although one of her eyes had completely closed up on its own due to the brain tumor pushing down on it. She had no use of that eye obviously when it completely closed. But Duchess was very confused, bumping into walls and falling down. In the end, she couldn't stand or walk without us helping her. I knew it was time for her. Talk with your vet. Get his input. It was extremely hard for me to make this decision as it is for everyone. I just couldn't stand to see her go through this any longer. It wasn't fair to her. I'm praying for you and Baxter. hug hug hug hug hug
