Once again i am not getting emails notifying me of new activity in this thread. Its been about one week since I last visited this thread and came on today only to find that the Big Pink Elephant in the room everyone wasnt talking about has finally surfaced.
I told another Glenn owner a couple weeks ago in a PM that I thought the virus was already out of control and we werent being told the truth. In this case I hate being correct.
Due to not being able to drive because of my eyes I have essentially been a shut-in for the last six years. Sadly Long Island doesnt have affordable transportation,so I just stay home all day,every day. Im used to this stuff.
Then yesterday my beloved Angel of Light,Choo Choo was diagnosed with aggressive cancer. She had a seizure in my lap two nights ago so thats how we knew something really bad was happening. My wife and I cried all day long,and I sat upstairs with my Angel and watched as her breathing has rapid but shallow. She couldnt get off of the couch so I wanted to be there with her if the moment came. I stayed up until 5am watching TV with her,and then I was finally able to convince her to come to bed.
Today she seems to be feeling much better. Shes smiling and wagging her tail,and even ate some of my pizza.
Losing a dog is always difficult,but this dog has saved my life so many times I lost count. When I was ready to give up my thoughts would always go back to Choo Choo and I couldnt stand the thought of leaving her behind.
The vet says we may have days,weeks or perhaps months left with her. Im guessing she has had the cancer for awhile now as lately she has opted to stay alone upstairs ,whereas normally shes in my lap all the time. I had chalked it up to her getting grumpy in her old age,but the truth was much worse.
I dont know why im typing all of this here. I guess its therapy for me. I love my girl more than life itself.
Hey D - really sorry to hear that man, she looks like a very gentle and loving pup. No matter what happens, just remember you've given her a very happy life full of love.
