Default neckbone has come to live with us

THere was nothing else to do, in her own home envioroment they were unable to give her the special needs care she has to have to get any quality out of her life. I chose my words carefully and explained that in my most honest opinion they had two choices. One, put her down or send her to the Old Dog Nursing home, my living room which is what they decided.

She feels much much better this morning, and was down right perky for the first time in a week. I am good at being hypervigiliant to what she eats, and attending to her skin's issues. So wish us luck. Victor and Pepper are not to thrilled, but one super stinky old woman curled up to me the night before last and wuffled in my ear that she likes it here and sealed the deal with a slurp. Vet is closed today, but we will be there tomorrow.

She is not acting homesick at all which is a relief to me. She will get to go on her first walk today in a decade. WE will take it slow. I would like to give her a good summer. With her health issues, she might not get two. time will tell.

Smkie - let me just say that you are awesome. Neckbone is going to have the best possible time in what remains of her time here.

Short version: Neckbone is a neighbor's dog which special dietary and health concerns that Smkie has been informally caring for because the neighbors were unable/unwilling to put in the extra time required. She just made it official and had the dog move in.

What a wonderful thing for you to do!

I'm sure she feels right at home and is downright happy to be with you.
