Default Old pups last ride

Our 14 year old German shepherd has been getting close...today my wife called my crying. Pup is having trouble standing and keeps falling...her hips are bad but this is different. She is getting worse as the day goes on. We are about to head to the emergency vet. Please say a prayer for momma...she isn’t doing well with it.

Great news!...couldn't ask for a better outcome Our White Shepherd was doing something similar when he was about 11 years old and come to find out he had Hemangiosarcoma...liver was riddled with cancer, he never made it home from the emergency vet but at least it took him fast. Glad you get some more time with your pup! Cherish every day
