Default Frodo?

So how is he doing? I've been wondering.

Still hanging on, has more good days than bad but I can tell that some days he's not himself. I know we are nearing the end but he has surprised me lasting this long. He is just full of spit and vinegar and too stubborn to leave me.

Thankful to you all for asking. I know most people love their dogs but you guys "get it" more than most and many of you know our backstory. I wish I could get Bruce Cameron who wrote A Dogs Purpose to write our story. I think it would make a great story.

I have 'lost' one dog,... I don't want another to suffer that much pain! It is so hard to judge too.

He has a tumor that can be seen and felt on the bridge of his nose. For some reason he has stopped having some of the violent sneezing attacks. I think he is losing some of his hearing. A few days ago I took him to visit our trainer and she said he seemed alert and bright eyed. It's good to get someone else's opinion because I am too close to see what needs to be seen.

It's nice to hear how Frodo is doing. We certainly do get how it feels and know what turmoil you must be in with your emotions.

It's good to hear he is having more good than bad days, and the sneezing easing off must be a bit of a relief too.

Sending lots of good wishes for you both.

Frodo had a vet visit today. She thinks his growth is an abscess so we're going to try a round of antibiotics. I'm sad about a particular bit of news though. he can't have any more vaccines. It seems so final to hear. His dog license is up for renewal and the vet issued a letter to exempt him from the required rabies vaccine. I'm trying to be stoic and failing miserably. It's not like I didn't know this was coming. Also, he's getting more reactive as far as trying to lunge at people while we are on walks. He won't be a liability because I have been taught very well how to handle him. It's just hard to have to be 100% vigilant and never letting down my guard. We don't get to be all fun and happy on walks or anytime I take him out in public. I am getting worn down. I think his increased reactivity indicates to me that he feels worse than he lets on. Some of his meds will also be increased as well. I'm also only going month to month on heartworm pills which in the past I always bought a 6 month supply.

I do so want to get off this roller coaster of emotions. I hope he will let me know when he's had enough, although I think he's to stubborn to admit defeat.
