Default RIP Dusty

I had my little Dusty pts the day before Christmas Eve. It was his time, and we'd been waiting for him to tell us for six months!
He had:
-diabetes
-Cushings
-Enlarged heart that was also pressing on esophagus and trachea
- incontinence
- enlarged liver
- various moles that would frequently bleed
- arthritis
- missing half of his teeth (they broke easily and had to be removed)
- mouth tumor, one was a plugged salivary gland the other we don't know
- cataracts and was going deaf

But he was always playing in our sheets, ready with a lick and a snuggle, and had half a Pringle chip every night lol. I think his heart was failing at last as those last few days he had NO energy and didn't really want to move much. His last day he refused to play in the sheets when we made the bed, something he had done every day for 13 years.

Such a long and happy life - you must miss him dreadfully, but it sounds as if he let you know the time had come. Sleep well, Dusty, amidst the memories of those tumbled sheets...

So hard to read when a sweet, beloved dog leaves. R.I.P. Dusty.

What a little charmer. I always have to brace myself for these threads because I know how raw and painful your grief must be. You made the right decision. It sounds like Dusty lived a charmed life.
