I had to let Xena go on Friday (1-12-18), She was a little over 11.5 years old. She has been healthy her whole life up until November. In mid November early one morning she woke me up as she was in a full grand mal seizure. I took her to the vet that morning as soon as the vet opened. The vet said to monitor her CLOSE and bring her in if she had another one. Well 2 weeks after that she had a petite mal seizure. So back to the vet she went and was pu on phenobarbital. That seemed to help her until last week. I knew something was "off" with her early last week. Then on Thursday after noon she had a seizure and a couple hours later had another one. I contacted the vet and he had me give her 2 of her phenobarbital.. she was ok for about 5-6 hours and then had about 8 petite seizures through out the night.. and so I called the vet and before I took her into the vet she had several more.
I looked into her eyes and KNEW it was time. She was not herself and was no longer happy in life. So I made the VERY HARD decision to end her suffering. It was the kindest act I could do for my sweet girl.
I LOVE YOU XENA!! and will miss you for the rest of my life!
Until we meet again RUN FREE SWEET girl!!
I love this picture!! I told her to "fuss" and she backtalked me, but did what I asked..lol

But I am glad you had the strength to act responsibly.
