Mischievous Cody--the dog who loved chocolate!
It's been an emotional roller coaster this week with our old dog, Cody. It's been at least 9 days since she's eaten and she's really not drinking water, either. We've been giving her sub-cutaneous fluids the last few days and that's about it. The vet is not sure just what is happening other than her kidneys are failing. We don't know what precipitated all of this. She is 12, however. It's still a heart breaker even though she's had a full, charmed life. She's a dog, after all. But, Pete treats his dogs like royalty.
Here is a dog who used to eat everything and now turns her head away from peanut butter.
So, we are preparing ourselves for the end of a sweet life.
