Minnie Pearl

Two Years Old (Miniature Wire-Haired Dachshund)

Last Winter
The past few days have been a roller coaster of emotions. I have a dog, Minnie Pearl, who is getting old in dog years. She will be 15 next month. Now she is sick. She was diagnosed with Hepatitis a few months back. Bottom line is that her liver and kidneys are about to quit working. She can be so sick for a couple days and I feel this is the time. It is so agonizing. If she is suffering should I have her put to sleep? I make an appointment with the vet to get his opinion and that is an instant cure. She began to perk up and was her old self, but I took her anyway to see if she needed something. She is now on a special diet and taking medicine. There isn’t much that can be done.
Today she is doing good.
