Those who saw my kidney dog posts know that Dex has health issues. Now 16 yrs he has had kidney disease for 3 yrs however it hasn't effected him at all or got worse other than it limits pain meds for his old joints so has Cimalgex. He also has dementia so has meds for that.
To be honest I wouldn't disagree with anybody that thinks ok time to say enough, however this is one terrific terrier who eats well, sleeps well, enjoys a run down hill and a tootle round his fields at his own pace.
He's only small so not heavy to carry if he's tired or can't do the stairs, while ever them eyes show quality of life, he enjoys his food and is please when I come home then all good.

Dexter is a very lucky lad to have you but then I bet you think you are lucky to have him! Enjoy your time together, however long that may be.

Ari he is so lucky to have you as his mummy, we get do much fun from our animals but they also break our heArts when we have to say goodbye. Yesterday I had to say goodbye to e of my old sheep Cracker, sobbed as the vet pts,, before he did I asked him to double check I was doing the right thing which he confirmed . To some she was just a sheep, to me she was a family member who we loved and enjoyed. I also am trying to prepare myself to say goodbye to my Arab mare, she looks fantastic but sadly she's not sound and her eyesight is such that she now only see,s fuzz, I am dreading it but know it has to be done.big hugs to Dexter from me and Percy who luckily is doing very well with his Addison's disease .

Sorry to hear about Cracker but no doubt she was one pampered sheep living with you. Our animals bring us so much joy and happiness but also a lot of heartache but life would but very sad without a furry to love. x

Hi Sally I am so pleased that Percy is doing good. To have to say goodbye to any oldie who's been part of your life and family is heartbreaking however somehow we know the time is right and take some comfort from that. A physically healthy horse like your lady however old with disabilities compromising quality of life is even harder on the mind and heart. A horse however domesticated has to be able to enjoy life and for a horse sight and ability to move freely is a huge thing.
They all give so much happiness, companionship and love I dread the pain of loosing however it will never stop me sharing my love xxx
