@GrogNerd i believe that i speak for many here when i say that we're all saddened by this news, and are thinking of you/praying for you/holding you in the light/etc. t'is the curse of dogs - years of love that inevitably lead to a big heartache. but we do it for the love... the love... the love.The Howdy is not eating
14&1/2 & I'm afraid he's near the end.
I'm not handling this well at all
I love that though..when I come across people that appear scared, especially kids...it makes me sad that they seemingly haven't had a good dog experience. My daughter's Girl Scout troop leader has been fostering dogs for the past 2 years or so...I'm surprised I haven't somehow ended up with at least a 2nd dog yet. Although I have come close...Looking at the photos makes me wish we still had a dog but the reality is a happy dog requires a lot of work. Problem is I go nuts when I see a dog being walked--Can I pet your dog? Can I pet your dog? I sound a little needy and creepy.

Hell yeah. Hadn't been on here in a bit and the first post I saw was the not eating post and I almost swore out loud at my computer. Good dog Howdy
Youch. It's painful, I know. In a while, you'll just remember the good times and smile. But that does take a while.seems like the Howdy's recovery was short-lived. Had him on steroids, supposed to stimulate appetite, but he stopped eating again. vet gave him anti-biotics, they didn't help
he hasn't eaten but a couple bites the last 3 days, he's having trouble walking & he's in too much pain.
we've made the decision; it's time, I can't bear to watch him suffer.
he had some time outside on the porch yesterday. didn't want to lie in the sun, was content to lie down right next to the Daddy
