Our dog is dying. She has lymphoma and the vet gives her 6-12 months with chemo. So it will probably be less than that.
She's an absolute idiot, but you couldn't ask for a nicer personality. She loves the child as if she were her own and despite constant rebuffing considers the cats her new best friends. She's the softest, daftest thing you could ever meet. She's just made friends with an old black Labrador next door. She's only about 6 and it's just awfully unfair.
Plus we only lost the other dog before Christmas so within a year we'll have said goodbye to both.
I'm very sad right now.
