Tom we're putting Bou to sleep. The bone has not bugged one inch and there are no options. The vet said we could think about an endoscopy but I have no doubt in my mind, that's it time and I will not have another medical procedure done on my Bou.

He has been so unhappy lately, and the last three days unable to stand up on his own. And obviously this has distressed him no end. He sits on his bed and just stares into space, he's fidgety, he hasn't been excited or happy in over a month. Also 2 months ago, he started having bowel problems and controlling it. I was willing to fight till the end,,, and now it definitely is the end.

Today he didn't even want to eat. There is no point waiting,,, Bou is so, so unhappy.

I had a bad experience with my vet though. When I called and said I wanted to put Bou down, he was like WHAT? WHY?

And then when I told him a few of the reasons, he said to talk to him tomorrow. I told my mom that I couldn't go through another conversation about my reasons so she called him and then he completely changed his story saying, "Oh I told her a month ago to maybe consider putting Bou done (he did no such thing) and also I can't put a dog down in front of 20 other patients, there are legal issues, so you'll have to come in last, which is why I wanted you to speak to me tomorrow"

I have no idea what legal issues he's talking about. I always found him weird but his medical advice was always sound so I continued.

My mom is horrified at his behaviour, I'm just,, well in denial. I can't even look at Bou at this point.

Not sure if I can deal with flickr tomorrow, so...

Thank you for your emails. Kelly, I know you so wanted Bou to get better... I did too...
