I've made an appt for Lucee tomorrow at 4pm. She'll cross the bridge. Why not today? My daughter who essentially grew up this dog is working and I'm not willing to compromise her at work, (she'll be upset), but I will let her know in the morning...her day off.
Lucee is 14...for the last two days, she has refused to get up in the morning for food. In 14 years, she has NEVER not gotten up in the morning. She yelps when she goes up and down the two steps by the back porch. She yelps and struggles worse when we try to help. There are a lot of conditions going on all at once, and my decision a couple of years ago was to let her just go on until she got uncomfortable...well that time has come.

She has always been a good dog. Not lovey dovey. Doesn't care for kids, but as long as they ignored her.. She's exceptionally well behaved offlead. Followed verbal and hand commands flawlessly.

Aging has not been easy for her...I could tell that it added to her "oh, my..the sky is falling" paranoia. I've discussed the best option for her with the vet several times, and to focus on her to treat something would make her so nervous, that I think it create more discord in her world...hence the decision to just let her be.
Lucee, tootsie..good girl.

I'm so sorry. That's a rotten decision to have to make, but it sounds like you're making the best of it for Lucee.

Godspeed, Lucee.

That sucks Perry. But if it has to be done, it has to be done.
