We have been using a large towel to help her walk ' SHE IS ALMOST 19 ' . And she likes it. But this DIY sling is better.
I prayed that she would die so she wouldn't suffer but it is hard to know she is gone. We treated her extra special during her illness and she had a great long life. I keep thinkign about all the good times with her. These other two are sisters from a mutt litter like Alice was are about 12 years old and well minded dogs too. Also good dogs.So sorry she died, Meerkat.
Amish we have been doing just that. She is now on the porch with her sister and feels better being close to us. Plus they can go in or out as they please with dogie door. She was really acting up digging , not eating or drinking water and barking out for no reason.Give extra hugs to her other dog sister today, and it'll do you both some good.
Thanks Patch. I still have my crying times for sure. Reading this thread is making me cry now. I'm glad she is not suffering [ as in not being able to walk around without help from us, you could tell it embarassed her' } and prayed she would go but still miss her. But she had a wonderful very long life,never sick and always happy. Only had a couple accidents that needed vet.It is so hard to lose a dog.
It'll be harder over the next few weeks probably too. I know it was when we lost our mixed lab. LOVED that dog so much.
I know you loved your Alice.
I was telling hubby yesterday lets just remember the good times. I tell myself the same thing often.
