I am having some mixed feeling on what to do with Lily.  She has had a bad couple of days, having a hard time pooping, and today she peed in the house twice, which Lily never did before.  Her legs are just not holding her up enough to go to the bathroom.  I don't feel like she is in pain or suffering, but then I think maybe she is, and I am being unfair to her to keep us happy.  My husband got mad at me today as I was really upset about her peeing in the house and sitting in it.  Then later on we were on the front porch, and she had pooped while she was sitting there.  So again I had to clean her up.  My husband just kind of got pissed at me and said just make the appointment on Monday and do it, that is what you want.  That isn't what I want, I just want her to have a good life, and not have to be unable to do her own thing.  I am not really asking you guys what to do, I am just venting as I am so not ready for this, but then at the same time I am.  I just do not know what to do, some of my family and friends say I am not being fair to , but there are times she seems to be having a wonderful day and still enjoying life. 


Sorry if I am rambling, I am just so down right now


Hugs to you all

I read this blog and all the replies.  How blessed we are to be able to connect with people who love puggies.  I know this is so hard for you, Di.  I'm lifting her up in prayer, and wisdom for you.  I know some people poo poo prayer for pets, but I know our Lord loves animals so much.  Gosh, He commissioned an ark for them!  That's love!  Keep us all posted.  Hugs and kisses for Lily.  <3

Hi Di sorry to hear this as you know with sheba she couldn't walk to good either as i had to carry her and yes she did both in the house but,i loved her so much and the vet said she was okay it was just her age as my love is so strong i just cleaned things up and then held her in my arms.Later as you all know she was in diapers and yes i changed her and cleaned her she was worth all that and so much more and i do miss her and noah as every day it is a struggle for me and if i had to do it again yes i would they are every part of my being.As i now hold darla and buggy alot more and no matter what they do they will always get a hug from me and they have accidents especially if it's raining but,i don't care as long as i can still hold them in my arms that's all that matter's to me.Please give her a hug from aunt julie and please take care i love you all so much.

We had to let our lilly go in march and it was hard but I knew without a doubt it was time. You have to decide what their quality of life is. I had no problem cleaning up accidents and did so without a word but the day she wouldn't take a treat I cried. The next morning she wouldn't walk outside to potty where as she would always run out in the mornings and refused a treat again. I called the vet and had him confirm my suspicions. We decided to let her go and I held her till the end. We knew it was coming but waited until she had no will for her favorite things. I feel I made the decision exactly when she would have wanted me to.

Awww Diane what a wonderful idea to have her blessed!  My first pet was a guniea pig when I turned 8 or 10 and he was blessed :)  That would be so sweet, you should take pictures!  Bless you all :)

Thank you Rashmi I really appreciate that, and I know you guys will always be there for me.  I don't really know what I would do without this site and all my new found family.

I have never neen in this situation before and I dont know if I will ever be able to be as brave as you are, Diane, when I get there. As I read your blog, I am crying and it feels like Lily is my own baby. I feel for you and although not experienced, I think I have an idea of what you must be going through. My prayers are for Lily to go on happily for as long as she can, and anyway God has a master plan for all beings alive and at the end of the day, it is His will. I may have never met Lily, but please know that she is in my thoughts and prayers everyday and I love her very much. Love to you and take care. And you can ramble about anything to all of us, after all we are one big family !

Brent I know you know that I have been through this too, twice, but it still doesn't make it any easier.  I knew that you had said Walker was having some problems, but now it sounds as though you are goiing through what I am, so as you are thinking of me I to am thinking of you.  I just keep saying give her one more good day, and it appears that it happens.  I do feel there are times that she is lost and in some pain, but then Lizzy will go over to her give her a little push, and she perks up and starts to play a little as she is doing right now.  Next Sunday is the blessing of the animals at our church, and Henry told the priest (he is a friend) he has to give Lily a very special blessing next week, maybe it will help her along one way or the other.  As I said before thank you all for being her for me and letting me just rant on and on.  As you know I will keep you all posted.  Hugs Diane and Lily

Di, you know I too feel your hurt and know the tearing of directions.  I have traveled this road more times than I wish to recall.  Never ever is it easy.  For me personally, I have made the dash to the Vet when my direction of thought leaned towards the benefit to the of what's best for the Pug, not me.  Never easy and I know will never be.  I stayed with mine and held them, talked to them and cried like never before for anyone or anything.  I am now looking at Walker....wondering.  I have to go get him each time he is outside, he is in a world of his own.  As with Lilly he is old and that terrible time approaches for me also.  My prayers are with you.

Dear Diane

I have been there, so I know what you are going thru. When the Vet gave up, I gave up. But she did not know me and she was blind. I could not go into the room either. I did not want to dream about it.

It must be very difficult for you. My heart feels for you. Jean
