Guest Post from Donna Kay...

I graduated from college and moved away from home in 2013. Naturally, my 6 year old shepherd mix moved with me. It was just going to be the two of us on this big adventure. Life was grand; two walks a day, coming home over lunch to hang out, and weekends on the couch cuddling.

About 6 months into adulthood/debt, I noticed my walking buddy wasn't walking the best. I took him to a vet in town, who told me he had bad arthritis, and that it would be "best" to put him down.

Never one to take advice, I was put in touch with a different vet. She put him on a high dose of Rimadyl, with the agreement we'd do blood tests every year to check organ damage.

Wow, what a change! Monday the suggestion is euthanasia, and Tuesday I'm agreeing to a 3, 4, 5 year drug plan!

I'm happy to report my best friend is still with me, he even has big responsibilities now. He keeps the couch from blowing away, he makes sure his little brother Duke behaves, and he barks like crazy at rabbits on our twice a day walks.

Sorry Bo, but it's going to take a little more than arthritis to take you away from me.
