Well, Sweet Geek called - Lucy has a very aggressive cancer in the joints of her leg. :sigh: So...the decision has been made.
She started limping 3 or 4 weeks ago. Before anyone jumps on me, she did NOT appear to be in any kind of pain. She simply wouldn't put weight on the leg. I checked it out, no whimpers or snaps, so I figured she sprained it and watched her. She was losing weight...but she's 8. And a Pyr. She's getting on up there - so I added Moist'n'Meaty, and, this week, a can of Purina Lamb'n'Veggies every night.
She had no appetite last night....but then, she's getting older. I wasn't *that* concerned. Plus, I knew she'd be seeing the vet today.
And now, this. :sigh: At least Sweet Geek will be there when they give her the shot - since I can't get off of work for "just a dog, after all!" :grumble:
Pet ownership sucks sometimes....
