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....

I'm SO sorry, and so sorry that you can't leave work. My manager didn't 'get it' but he didn't argue with me either -- I'm sorry your boss is so less-then-understanding.

I'm so very, very sorry.

Health issues can be so sneaky with the big breeds. My sister-in-law was in the Pyr Rescue network for years and it was hard. I think most of the ones she took in eventually were diagnosed with cancer. Seems to be an issue with Pyrs.

But this info certainly doesn't make your situation any less painful. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry! (((hugs)))
And a kick in the head for Mrs. Boss. What a looser.
