my heart is breaking with sadness and worry over my dear presley. he woke us in the middle of the night thursday night unable to stand up or control his body. our vet says it might be a brain tumor or a severe case of vertigo. he has been at the vet under observation and sedation since yesterday morning. we will go to visit this morning and get a report. we've been dreading this situation for some time now as he is almost sixteen and has slowed down a lot over the last few months. the house is so empty without my little shadow and i can't bear to imagine life without him. i've vowed to do totally right by him and ensure he is comfortable and knows how very much he is loved for whatever time we have left with him. but inevitability weighs so very heavy on my heart. how do you say goodbye to such a faithful friend, one who gives so much and really expects so little in return?
