i noticed in the past 24 hours..... lola was having a great deal of difficulty getting up when laying on her side. and now i know why...her front leg is breaking down....tonight it is swollen and now open. i think the tumor has gotten so big it is starting to interfere with the blood supply. why does she have to have so much spirit alive and well inside of her when her body is so very close to letting her down?
lab's live life differently..every moment of life is hugely interesting and needs to be cherished and embraced. so hard to tell them, now my love, it is time to let go and be free. they look at you like you are crazy...they are already happy and free.
i will call and make her appointment but i think first, lola would like a swim in the lake and a sleepover at the cabin...(i can drive her right down to the beach...so much easier than her trying to walk to the pond for her much loved swim.)
love you lola...last day...a really good day..i promise you this.
