It is a terribly sad time and even after a year, my heart still hurts for her.
Yes, the next 24 hours are going to be awful, but I know it is the right thing to do at the end of the day. She has lived a long life for a Rottie, especially one who hasn't exactly had perfect health the last few years.

Got some steaks and some hot dogs for dinner tonight.

I hope Jinxie had whatever he wanted. I did the same thing for my Jenny during her last weekend. xoxo

Thanks for the well wishes. She went very peacefully in our house after enjoying many treats including nearly two steaks in the last two days. Another highlight was some waffles for the first time since getting diagnosed. She used to get some whenever I made them. I think staying in the house was good, especially for a blind dog since she was around familiar smells in the room she'd usually hang out in.

After three years of our daily schedule revolving around trying to stay on schedule for food/insulin, the first couple days after certainly are strange. First day back to work tomorrow, and a good chunk of my morning routine has been for her, so that will stink too.

But I do know it was the right thing to do. With her back legs starting to give out, I didn't want her to wake up one day and not be able to get up. Or stumble while on a walk and injure herself. Plus her various ailments seemed to be catching up with her based on her suddenly hit or miss desire for even the tastiest food.

I think staying in the house was a wonderful idea, familiar surroundings with the people she loves. ((((Hugs)))
