I stayed up way too late last night worried about my dog. He started coughing a couple of times, which led me to the internet.... I don't know about you, but when I don't know something I look and research the topic till I can't stand it anymore! You could say that's an anal part of my personality and I would have to agree!
Anyway, Dawson will be 14 years old this November. He's been with us since he was 7 weeks old! My oldest son is 11, so my kids have never known life without him.
Of course I found everything from allergies, to a collapsed trachea, to congestive heart failure! Thankfully he is fine and no more coughing last night or today, but I know it's coming! I keep trying to prepare myself, knowing what the near future holds, but nothing helps. I'm crying now as I type this thinking about not having him around :(
I know it's inevitable, but still....
