When is enough enough
Shadow is now 4 years old.
She is losing weight again, her dog reactivity has taken a turn toward out right aggression, she is coming in heat soon, her coat looks like crap.
I lost Sabi 1 year ago. Bud is 12 and probably wont live forever. Everyone I know is urging me to have Shadow put down and start over.
Shadow cannot be spayed due to health issues. Every time she comes in heat things get a bit worse. She has skin problems, food allergies, impaired vision and hearing, suspected brain damage caused by oxygen depravation and she has some behavioral issues which are always amped up by her being in heat. I have tried diet changes, she has had at least six sets of bloodwork, we have done stress tests on her heart, and eye exams. Testing is limited by the fact that the vets are all advising against putting her under. But a 65 lb dog that drops 10 lbs is a concern and she does this often.
So basically I have a dog that is managed not trained, who is never healthy for more then 5 minutes.
