I think we are getting close
Our 13 yo Aussie has been having trouble standing. It has been getting progressively worse over the past 6 months. Today I got home and tried to help him up. In the past when I have lifted his rear end he was then able to stand on his own. Today he kept falling down. I tried several times and then left him to relax a little. When I came back I was able to get him up and he could just barely stand and walk. He went out and walked ( wobbly hind quarters) around the yard. He was actually able to poop but I am not sure he peed.
I am so sad. He is a big Aussie so he is difficult to manage if he cannot stand on his own. I realize it is getting near the end. This is definitely the worst part of having a dog. Maybe he will come back for a little bit, but I recognize that the end is near.
