Thanks - you brought tears to my eyes. All we can do, besides give him the medication, is love him to pieces. He may last awhile longer, but this heat is so difficult for him to handle - even being inside. The love part is easy - watching him struggle is not.

Skittles, I think every greyhound that gets adopted ends up an ambassador! (Except the spooks!)

I hope so - they are very noble creatures - and most people don't understand what happens to them or how they are treated. With Attitude's 1/2 ear and scars it was easy to explain things to them.

BTW - last night was a GREAT night for the 'Tude.

It's just day to day. It's been overcast and cooler so he's been better - and he slept GREAT last night, which is good for us, too - since all of our dogs sleep in our room.

Thanks for asking. I have a pic of him on my i-phone that I need to get to Michele to see if she can turn it into an avatar for me.

Attitude is getting weaker and losing weight. We don't think he's going to be with us much longer. This is a huge blow to my husband. We lost his mother in October and Gabe (sheltie) a month ago.

I'm so sorry, DS frown. Having lost 2 pups in 2 days a couple of years ago, I can relate to the magnitude of your loss.

I'm so sorry about your sweet baby. I just cry for you. I was praying that he could stay a little longer. Please know that your BOL family will be thinking of you.

Not very good - and thanks for asking. I'm leaving this decision to my husband and he is reluctant. It's so hard to determine if he still has any quality of life. He does get excited when we get home from work and still eats well. Yesterday he spent the majority of the day sleeping on the couch. You could hear his chest rattle when he breathed. I don't think it's going to be too long. We've got the air on at home to keep the temperature down and humidity out.

Bless Attitude's little heart. I'll be thinging of you. I believe y'all will know when he has reached the point of no return and the right time has come. I'll be saying a prayer for him and your family.
