We had to put our Téa down today. She was having a lot of trouble with her back legs and kept falling down. Towards the end, she couldn't really pee or poop. She'd pee and then her legs would give out and she'd land in it. As for pooping, she would kind of lift her tail and the poop would just fall without her actually squatting. It was all very pitiful. And she didn't understand what was happening to her.
Also I'm leaving for Colombia tomorrow and she would always get very anxious whenever I'd leave. It just didn't seem fair to make her go through that when we was already becoming so physically weak. I know it's for the best, but it's so hard! This is the first night in over 14 years that we won't be taking her out for her evening walk...
I'm really sorry. I know what it's like to lose a pet and I remember I was really sad when our dog Lizzy died. But I think you made the right decision for her and I'm sure she had a good life with you. *hugs*
It will be weird leaving today then coming back at the end of January to a dog-less house. I'll have to mourn her all over again. But I know these things take time. I feel particularly bad for my daughter Laurence. She's be alone in the house while I'm on vacation and I'm sure she'll be thinking about the dog a lot.

I'm really sorry. It feels like you've had her forever, certainly the whole time I've known you.
The sight filled the northern sky; the imensity of it was scarcely conceivable. As if from Heaven itself, great curtains of delicate light hung and trembled. Pale green and rose-pink, and as transparent as the most fragile fabric, and at the bottom edge a profound fiery crimson like the fires of Hell, they swung and shimmered loosely with more grace than the most skillful dancer. ~ Northern Lights
No, I don't think so. It's a big responsibility and since I'm doing more and more travelling and will soon be living alone it's not really fair to leave a dog by itself or in a kennel. Besides, my landlady has written no new dogs into the lease so while I'm here it's out of the question anyway.
