came home from the Vet. One of our dogs last night came in to eat and
was falling down like she was dizzy. I stayed up all night watching her
& today she was not any better. Took her in and she had a stroke
yesterday.. The Vet says she was dizzy because her eyes were jumping
back & forth. She received 4 shots & blood work. He says it can
be up to 3 weeks before we know what extent the stroke had. This family
of dogs goes back 21 years in our life. The ole man as we starting
calling him lived to be 18. One of his off springs lived to be 10 before
cancer took him. Katie the mother is 13 & she is the one that had
the stroke. Little Bit was the runt of the litter & is still doing fine.
I had just finished up a pet headstone for someone, thinking I dread when the time comes for me losing another one of my dogs.
I have not gotten around to doing a stone for the dogs that have passed of mine. Just don't like thinking about. It's funny how we treat our pets. We have spent almost as much on them as we have my whole life on myself at the doctors. Of course insurance helps me out. I'm thankful that my health has been pretty good, no pill taking yet.
