The funny thing about dogs, they get real sick real fast and, if they are going to get better, do it real fast, too. I am keeping my fingers crossed hoping she has a few more good years left. With only half of her heart working, it sure puts a lot of load on the working side. It is time for her take it easy, but she hasn't learned how to do that yet. I try to help by carrying her up the stairs to the porch from the dogs' yard. Most of the time she is like a little kid and says "Daddy, I would rather do it myself", and up the steps she runs. I guess it is hard to take the pup out of the old dog.
I am sure glad to have another day with her. All I can do is take one day at a time. Neither dogs or humans are granted tomorrow. All we have is now, and the older I get the more I understand that. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
