He has entered his final days..

While his appetite remains voracious he has refused water. I've had to moisten his kibble to keep him hydrated.

It's been 10 days now. I've gone through an exhaustive list of remedies and what ifs. He refuses to leave my apartment.he is unable to navigate stairs. Please note that he is not in pain. It would be unfair to dump him at the local shelter. Pigs is 12,he was a good dog,he deserves nothing but the very best..

Euthanasia is scheduled for wednesday

Sorry to hear that, Frank.

But it's always sounded as if he had a good life with you.

3 years with his lil bro and first dad 9 years 6 months with me... I can't complain. The dog was dressed better than I and he ate like a king 😆

While 12 years is the average lifespan of dogs,his breed could live up to 17. No telling what his quality of life would be like though

I'm so sorry, Frank.  Knowing the moment is going to come sooner or later is no help when it actually arrives, is it?  All you can do is grit your teeth, do what Pigs needs you to do, and believe that when it's all over and the dust has settled a bit, along with the sorrow there'll be satisfaction in knowing that you gave him a good life and a good death.  No one can wish for more.

Apologies for making everyone worry.   

The vet suspects that pigs pulled a muscle 😂....here I am ready to give up on the poor dog😅

No apology necessary.  Just happy for you.
