So sorry that you are going through all this with your precious girl Tia. It really is just so horrible watching your best friend decline

It sounds like she still has fight left in her though. Daisy was the same for us, she refused to give up almost until the very end. Believe me, when she has had enough though she will let you know. Sending you lots of prayers at this difficult time. We know what you're going through and how difficult it is.

We fed her fillet steak and roast chicken yesterday which she loved. Her tummy is grumbling today so it may have been a mistake

I am very thankful that she can still get up and go about her business but I wonder how much longer that will last. Her eyes tell me that she refuses to give up and that she has no intention of going anywhere.

Over the past 6 weeks we have fallen in love all over again which I did not think was possible. I constantly check on her and she looks to me for comfort which intensifies our tight bond.

I hope things are a lot better at your end and that you have noticed some improvements or at least some extra sparkles in your pups eyes.
I am so sorry that Tia is not doing so well. I know how HEARTBREAKING THAT is! Give her extra hugs and kisses from me!!
