We all have been putting off this decision for as long as we could but I think it is time. But it isn't just my decision. I called Bryce yesterday to tell him that he needed to come to see his dog and he needed to bring dog food. That was our deal...I would keep her in her last days and he would supply the food. When I saw him walking up the driveway with a McDonald's bag I knew that he realized it was time also.
Every year for as long as I can remember, Bryce has gotten Seau a cheeseburger for her birthday. She loves them! She can't see very well and she is hard of hearing but there is nothing wrong with that dog's nose. She can smell food in the next county!
Bryce usually just gives her the bag and she shreds it. But tonight he took it out of the bag for her.
I love the big smile on Bryce's face.
Then she meticulously takes her nose and unwraps the cheeseburger.
She then proceeded to remove the pickles...she doesn't like them at all.
Once she does that, she starts with the bun top...every time like she is OCD she eats her cheeseburgers like this.
She ended up getting to have two cheeseburgers and Bryce had one with her.
Somebody please wipe the cheese off her nose. As you can see, she has lost weight. All of it actually. Literally she is nothing but skin, bones and tumors.
But she still remembers her one and only real trick. We must have made her do it 5 times and each time she got a whole dog bone.
Bryce took her out right before he left to go home...he got to spend a little time with her...just a boy and his dog.
I will admit that I am not doing so good today. I slept on the couch in the family room with her all night...like when she was a puppy. She makes the best heating pad ever. And I guess because her system hasn't had a cheeseburger since her birthday,,,she passed gas all night long. It helped pass the time. It was a very long night. Bryce is supposed to call the vet today. So it will be a long day around also.
She's been the best dog and we are surely going to miss her.
