I am very sad. I am attending to my dear blue tick hound, Sheba. We found out Monday she has a serious disease. After she got a couple of shots and put on meds, it looked like she was getting better, but the past couple of days she has taken a nose dive. I am still giving her the meds and giving her water and broth by large dropper.
Hubby is on duty today, but thank God he can respond from home. This would be too hard to deal with alone.
Sheba has always been a great dog. Even today, she got up, fell to the ground, then got back up and went outside to pee. I know this has really hard for her, but she has never had a "accident" in the house. I guess she wasn't going to start now.
She has always given love and kindness. Our grand daughter has grown up with her and she was always loving and gentle with her. Grand daughter gave her a toy a long time ago and Sheba has always loved it. She is laying on the floor with her head on it now.
I still have to follow the Christmas plans, but it is like all the joy has been taken out for me. So I put on a "happy" face and carry on, but my heart is breaking. It was so sudden and unexpected. Just had to vent.
