Did I Mention My Other Dog?

I mentioned earlier this week that Littlefoot had orthopedic surgery on his leg to stop his leg from dislocating while he ran. But I didn't mention that Lucy, our 15-year-old Border Collie, is now getting daily sub-dermal fluids via a needle from my wife every day to clear out her kidneys which are failing. She gets half a liter a day and sits there quietly absorbing the liquid without a whimper.

Between her and Littlefoot we have nearly a dozen medications we have to dole out everyday. Fortunately, our Greyhound is doing fine.

Do you have any pets?

DISCUSSION

I don't think I can own another animal, or at least mammal. I remember when I my family first got our dog when I was a child, during walks it used to pretty much drag me along to where ever it wanted in the park. My last memory was carry his frail body to the humane society be put to sleep. At 18 years old, he could barely eat and move on his own. It made me wish I could have taken better care of him over the years, but that's how things always are I guess. Though I do hope others may keep their pets for just as long or longer without that type of ending.
