It's been a long week. Tonight at 6:30 we are putting Sophie down. She's just been so sick and increasingly becoming worse. Her vision is nearly shot, she has trouble with balance and walking (other times she amazes me with her ability to run in short spurts), she has dementia and she pees on everything. We have had to keep her separate from Nala and Izzy because she's become aggressive as well, she even nipped at me. She's skin and bones, I have no idea how she's still alive to be honest. Her back is all hunched due to the stenosis of her spine. Not all of it, but most of it is from the tic disease anaplasmosis we've learned. Her liver and kidney failure is from her illness a few years ago - the medications killed her organs. I am just so terribly sad. But I know we are doing the right thing. If think of us, send up a prayer for peace and calm. I am leaving work early - just can't focus anyway. Thanks.
