Passing Away



I have a very beloved Anatolian Pyrenees afe 12 now and she's showing signs of arthritis and staring out at nothing etc. I don't want to be selfish as we are very attached to our dog named Yafah who is now a retired therapy dog. We got her as a rescue in Texas. I am looking for answers.

Quality of life
by: Donna

There is no set way for any breed of dog. It depends on the individual dog.

Make sure you take your dog to the vet to have her evaluated. She may need some pain medication as you don't want her to be in pain. It will give her some quality of life before it is her time.

Staring out is okay. She isn't a pup, anymore, and does not have that energy level. If she is panting heavily, this will be one sign of being in pain.

Talk to your vet about your aging dog and when it will be her time.

Elderly are thinking
by: Jeanette

Elderly are thinking m meditating , remembering. And there's RX if vet thinks needs it for senile if that occurs.

She is passing onward , forward . On a path.

But until that time join her in this thinking , remembering , meditating, sit with her and rest ,put her head in your lap, pet her, and smile and speak to her. She wants you to love her. This is true of all elderly beings.

You are blessed with an elderly grandmother dog who has wisdom and joy , to teach . Join her in her staring , stare yourself . Learn , because if you are not now, you will one day be elderly yourself and staring and it's ok when that happens.

Dogs teach many things and this is one of them . You are so fortunate to have this time, this space, this truth .

I Am happy for you. I've been a little near where you are. ....

And later when it happens . Many religious leaders including Billy Graham and the Pope believe that pets go to heaven, comforts me .

    Angel and Daisy came to us because someone did not do their research. They wanted dogs they could just let loose and expected them to hang around the home.
