We had to have the dog put to sleep this afternoon. It was not an easy decision because, while she'd looked bad this morning, by this afternoon she was up and moving around again, and pretty happy.
But she wouldn't eat and her constant panting had started to get a slight whistle sound to it. And her inability to stand this morning clued us that things were going bad quickly -- although that turned out to be a slightly different problem.
Rather than let her go to where she would be miserable, we said good-bye this afternoon.
So, no, it' s still not a good day. I thought 2006 was going to be better than 2005, but so far I've not seen an improvement.
