If you will recall, Casey had injured her back somehow in the spring of 2010.
Despite all odds, she managed to regain her mobility.
I noticed the other day that when she stood up her right back leg would shake.
The shaking got worse.
Then she was unable to put the foot down on the pads.
Instead she was trying to stand on the top of her foot, unable to bring it up.
Then her tail quit waging.
Now she is unable to walk.
We have went back to using the dog wheelchair.
When she is not in it she rarely gets out of her bed.
When she does, it breaks your heart.
The Vet in 2010 immediately suggested we have her put down.
Chyann pleaded for a few weeks to see if Casey could heal.
The Hubby rigged up a form of traction and we began to see improvement.
Then came the wheelchair and somehow she was almost back to her old self.
Mobile with pretty good control of her bowels.
We've got a vet visit this next week.
She is no longer mobile and has no control of her bowels.
Not sure what we are going to do.
Chyann is older now and more realistic in her expectations.
Guess we'll see.
Makes me sad to think of her gone.
Quality of life will be the determining factor.
Don't you agree?
