    and you're lucky to have had him with you so long. It's so hard, we love our pooties and woozles as members of our family, but when we adopt them as babies it's with the knowledge that we won't have them long enough.

    •  good news tonite - i started him back on triple (1+ / 0-)

      buffered aspirin and he is much brighter and more mobile tonite.  he is old enough to outlive any potential side effects from the aspirin (liver, kidney damage) and the benefits of being much more comfortable and mobile is worth giving him the pain meds.

      i am much more relieved tonite than last nite - and i thank you very much for your words of consolation.  

      i agree with you that they are never here long enough - but, to myself, i repost a friend's comment about what her dad told her when she was a child and lost her beloved dog.

      he said, "because there are so many of them and so few of us, god only gives each one of the a little time on earth so there are enough of us to go around."

      with this in mind, i've been watching a beautiful 3 1/2 year old sammy at sfsr rescue that had one eye removed due to glaucoma and the other eye needs drops 2x a day (not so much different than required insulin, no?).  she's been up for adoption for several months - and when the time comes, if she is still looking for a forever home, i'll be calling them.  after all, i've had (so far) a blind cat, a blind horse and a blind dog - this little girl still has one eye working but if she loses that, for me, it is not an issue.

      in the meantime, tee is happily squeaking his "babies" beside the bed - dragging out the over 100 "toys/babies" last nite has worked some serious magic with him - he still sez he has  lotz of toyz to squeakz still... so i'm encouraging him to keep working on the entire bunch!

        Both that he's perked up and that you have an eye on the next generation.

        Even though I have two apparently healthy and not aged (11 yr old & 4 yr old) pooties here, I've been to the end with enough of their predecessors. Even though it hurts, we keep coming back for more. I guess the happiness outweighs the pain.

        And I wish there were enough of us to go around, but no one would tell that to a child.
