Last Wish

Unfortunately, I don't think Prozac is going to bring back Katie's sanity. I thought while the drug was getting situated in her system that I would start working on loading Katie in the van. Just ask her to jump in for a treat and jump out immediately each day. No big deal, right? Generally, she resists, but today she started crying like I had never heard and shaking violently... just from being asked to load.If God ever takes one of my hounds while he or she sleeps, please let it be Katie. I would be so relieved if she passed away peacefully in her sleep when it is time for her to go. I fret about her needing a vet. I don't want to have to decide whether to panic her if she were sick or injured.I have started researching mobile vets. There appears to be several in my area that can do blood work and euthanize at home. If any of you live near me and have any experience with a mobile vet in our area, please let me know.For now, Katie is mostly content doing her cavalettis, hopping over a couple of jumps in the backyard, and extracting Kongs of every morsel. Every so often she wakes up and yelps in pain. I have no idea why, but I hope it does not get worse. I am sure she could use some acupuncture and swimming, but its not going to happen.Where is my Katie? This is not my MACH UD greyhound.
