The Elderly Pup

Ellie hasn't had the easiest month at the new house, at first it was confusion in the unfamiliar surroundings due to her senility but lately it has been the advancing effects of old age we were dealing with already, namely her lack of appetite for the food she needs to eat to manage her kidney disease, and her increasing lack of mobility. It's been an exhausting month for all of us but I'm thankful for the opportunity to nurse her through the end of her life, whether her time with us is numbered in days or weeks (months seems too much to hope for). Disease cut short the lives of our cats Scout and Emma so I'm thankful we have this opportunity with Ellie.
