Sally isn't going to last much longer. husband & I always had our "line in the sand" when it came to treating our animals - how far we would take it before we let them go. But Sally, my wonder dog Sally, is 14 years old. She's been with us since she was 2 years of age. I'm making an appointment with the vet tomorrow to see if she will tolerate steroids - I asked him to do his best to keep Sally alive this year to the best of his ability. We're at the comfort care stage of Sally's life. I watching my puppy dog & get more & more discourage. She's struggling with the half tiered stairs - not eating much or drinking for that matter. She sleeps her day away. Can make it only half way around the block. I had hoped & still hope she makes it until after January or goes quickly now. Vet appointment tomorrow or Tuesday. We'll see., Maybe the steroids will help. I don't know which way to go & I don't want to make this decision.
