Ole buzzard Yotty and I lost our eldest Pug, Wilhelmina, on Thursday, 11/13/14. She would have been nine years old in January. She had started walking oddly back in April, and she had been diagnosed with three herniated disks in her neck. Owing to Pug physiology, corrective surgery would have been extremely high risk. We opted to not have surgery. She eventually lost the ability to walk at all, and we kept her as comfortable as possible. She lost all visual reflexes and interest in eating on Tuesday, 11/11. We took her to the vet to be euthanized, but she passed naturally before they could perform the procedure.
BirdsNest I know you miss her terribly. We are so sorry for your loss, it is never easy to say Goodbye to our pets. I love that picture of her, such a beauty.

Balogreene Yottie and Buzz, I so wish one of my fur friends would have gone naturally, even at the vet's. She was a beautiful dog, and apparently, from your posts the matriarch of the family. There is not much comfort, I know. But, she is in Heaven, waiting for you and her other friends. C.S. Lewis maintained if God took people, surely pets get a free pass to heaven. My heart goes out to your hearts.
