As I'm writing you all I'm remembering you are all probably asleep! So Good Morning to who reads this ! My daughters and myself are dog sitting a great dane. She is 11 years old and frankly we think she should be put to sleep. She no longer is kept inside because she can't control her bowels. The had built a lean-to on their deck for her, but it doesn't keep the rain out. She is a large bag of bones. She has no muscle mass so she must be in considerable pain. She is on a couple of medicines but can't take the pain meds because it affects her badly. The owner (very nice couple) told Jen that you wouldn't put your Grandmother down. She didn't quite know what to say. I'm trying to come up with a way to tell him to put her out of her misery. She is beginning to "nest" in a corner of their yard. Our Vet says she is getting ready to die. Has anyone had a similiar situation? I have had to put down my sweet dogs and know how hard it is, but I also know I wouldn't put them through what she is going through. It makes me want to cry. I hope I can convince them!
