Hello everyone, I do not post very often, but I read here frequently. Today I am taking my 13.5 year old Dalmatian (Canuck) in to the vet for the last time. He has been losing control of his bodily functions for the past few months, and is having a hard time getting up and walking. The past week he has not eaten reguarly. He is losing weight, and yesterday, as I cleaned him up from a mess he had made, I could just see it in his eyes. The time has come. It is time to face the inevitable. I discussed this with my family and we are all in agreement. Here are some pics of him from February, 2002...one of which he is with his old friend Terry, who we had to have put down in October, 2004. Today Canuck will join Terry again. Please pray for my family as we deal with our loss. Thank you to everyone on this board, you are all wonderful.
