I need advice from my Goy friends..
Some of you might remember our dog Cassie :) A rescued Border Collie, Robbie our friend was her original owner but his girlfriend couldn’t handle or want her when she was pregnant, (girlfriend not Cassie) and asked us if we would look after her untill the baby was born! even tho we allready had 2 Staffie’s at the time we agreed, That was 14 years ago and we still have her :)))) Although to this day cassie still loves Robbie more than she does’e us, yes, Robbie is still our mate and has since rescued 2 more dogs, he is with another girl who loves dogs and they have a family together, Baby to first girl is now 14 and is still very much in Robbies Life :))) Didn’t want you to think he abandoned his son as he did Cassie I suppose lol.. At the time they were VERY young :))
The advice i need is about Cassie….
About 3 months ago she started to wee in the house, She couldn’t help it, didn’t even know she was doing it! The vet gave us some medicine and it worked a treat..
3 weeks ago she went totally and suddenly blind in both eyes, I know thats not normal, Robbie and family came to ours and we all just cried our eyes out, we phoned the vet and she said to keep her calm and bring her in the next morning..By then she had gained the site back in one eye (phew) she is on the second course of antibiotics but there is no change in the blind eye which is bulging with blood behind it..
I Know Cassie is very ill, I just know it, She has dimentia (vet agrees) and its heartbreaking to watch her stare at walls and getting confused, sometimes not recognising family members..also forgetting to sit at the door to be let out and instead doing her business in the house (poor girl)..
she go’s back to the vet in 2 weeks as she suspects Cassie has diabeties (im measurung her fluid intake) and to take fluid from a hard golf sized lump under her front leg!
The thing is, She is still eating (a lot) and going for her walks (Gets tired half way) cleaning her self etc..
The advice i need is, How long do i let her go on like this, she is over 15yrs old, When it was time to let go of my Staffie’s, They let me know, not eating or wanting walks etc, If Cassie has another fit I will have to get her
put to sleep (I think) it was distressing for her and us :(
Phew, I dont know what to do, Help..
