Hello Carol:

I wanted to let you know our lovely Daisy has passed on Sunday. It was time before the dementia completely took over.

She had many vet visits & drugs for her illnesses: Hip Dysphasia (Metacam), Glaucoma in left eye (Trusopt, Diopred, Travatan), Collapsing Trachea rings (Torbutrol, child's Benylin Dry Cough), ending with Cognitive Dementia (tried Melatonin, Acevet, and finally Alprazolam to help her sleep at night for maximum 3 hours at a time). In between she had three infections, a little one in April, then in June (two night stay at vets with IV drip, Baytril, Novo-Famotidine, Metronidazole Suspension, Lactulose Solution, Sulcrate), and again in Sept (one night stay at vets with IV drip, Apo-Prednisone, Zeniquin, Apo-Misoprostol) which each took a little more strength from her until I had to help her stand to pee/poop.

But also wanted to share she did walk on a field path by herself, could trot (very prettily) down our apartment's corridor, and run for about 4 seconds too. During our walks, could step-up a curb, and walk about 1/2 block.

I always knew if Daisy was feeling her best, she would growl at other dogs - a great fighting spirit.

She was a most fussy eater, and would spit out the "good-for-you" kibble, even when hand feeding at the end. Loved to have shedded wheat with milk after her main breakfast. And to have her pills hidden in deli roast beef.

It was a tough go at the end emotionally, but worth every dime to be there for Daisy's last 9 months. She will have place of honour on the fireplace's mantel with my other girls.

rest in peace daisy-too...big hugs and thanks to audrey for loving you so well.
