Please Pray For My Sweet Puppy

Peanut isn't doing well and I experienced my first ever full blown panic attack. It wasn't pretty and I was even surprised at my unstoppable reaction. I guess I'm just tired of losing things.

The vet says she could have a tumor, could be having mini-strokes or her symptoms could be the result of geriatric vestibular disease. Either way, our time is limited as she is 13 years old. I have had her since she was 6 weeks old and she has lived a long life, but it doesn't change the devastation I will feel when she goes, whether it is today or 3 years from now.

I am so sorry. I know the love and companionship dogs give and I can't imagine a life without them. I hope Peanut has many more special moments (and years)with you before she passes. I'll pray for Peanut today.

Saying some prayers for little Peanut right now, and also hoping that the panic attacks stay away.

Oh, I'm so sorry about both peanut and the panic attack! Dogs are wonderful friends and it is so sad to see them sick and/or in pain. I wish the best for him.

Poor Peanut. I hope she either gives you lots more time of love and friendship, or goes peacefully. It is such a sad thing to lose a canine companion - we recently lost our 9 month old puppy and all I wish is that we had had him for 13 years.
