So my mom went on a week long vacation & is coming home tonight. I spent the weekend house sitting for her. I got almost no sleep taking care of her dogs. Her oldest dog can barely walk & falls often & can’t get up without help. Can’t control her bladder. All she did was pant & whine late last night/ this morning. There’s other awful things, but you don’t want to know every detail. She wasn’t nearly THIS bad when my mom left, the dog just went downhill very fast while my mom was gone.
She was crying when she found out how bad her dog was. She made an appt at the vet for 1st thing tomorrow cause she gets in too late tonight. But this dog is in severe pain. She has friends who can take the dog to the vet today, but she wants to wait til she comes home to say goodbye. To her, her dogs are a part of the family. I’m so sad for my mom, but also mad that she let her get in this much pain. Then again, she was out of state so she didn’t really know how bad her dog was. I know that if she was here, she would’ve taken her to the vet a few days ago. She’s going to be so sad for days. She doesn’t take loosing a pet well at all & especially knowing how much pain her dog’s been in & her being gone :(.
