and welcome to this wonderful forum. The people here are so kind and genuine.
I lost my german shepherd last November and still have a hard time with it. I have a nine month old german shepherd now that I have to get spayed on Friday. Very nervous about
this, but trying to keep it together. I have a 14 year old aussie that is not doing good. Last night she got off of the couch and was limping, I decided to give her an asprin in some cheese and she wouldn't take it and collapsed. I sat on the floor with her for 30 minutes and finally she got up and I helped her up on the couch again. Today she is doing better, but still having times of weekness and she can't stand up. Other times she walks slow. Do you think maybe she had a slight stroke? This happened to her about
a year ago just before my german shepherd had to be put to sleep.
This is particularly hard for me as I have had her for many years. I don't have children, so my dogs are like my kids. You will get through this, but it takes time. My pup is nine months old too. I don't know what i would do if I lost her. I am so nervous about
this surgery. I know it is routine, but still. I am just afraid of showing my fear and her picking up on it. I am really trying hard not to be nervous about
it. The hardest part is bringing her home and making sure not to hurt the inscision area. Getting her in and out of the truck. I guess I should deal with that when the time comes, it will probably be a lot easier than I think. Fortunately she is a small shepherd. Only about
60 pounds, I am guessing though.
Well, enough about
my problems, this is your thread. You will get through this. I am sure you have a lot of questions. Do you have any idea as to what might have been wrong to cause this? Be good to yourself. I had to get another dog to help make it easier for me. But I have always had them and can't even picture myself without a pet. I hope that you feel better soon. Take care, keep posting. As you can see there is a wonderful group of members here that really do care. And our lovely moderator, Kitt.
