    RIP Lucy

    My turn for the sad post, today we had to make the hard decision to take Lucy on her last trip to the vet.
    She went down rapidly since we were told she had either diabetes or Cushing's disease.
    She has been off her food for a few days and anything she did eat was brought up later, mostly blind and deaf , losing bladder control and barely up to get up meant it was her time.
    Anyone that met her knew how sweet and gentle and very loyal she was.
    Both of my daughters grew up with her and she will be greatly missed by us all.
    MY08 TDV6 SE D3- permagrin ooh yeah !
    98 TDI AUTO SE DISCO - gone and will be missed.

    It is heart wrenching having to make that decision , You think you should have done more for them but also know it is the best thing you can do for them. It has been around a month since we had to make this decision & still feel guilty think that may be if he may be had had the OP's he would be OK. Thanks to the AULRO members & out Vet Nurse daughter who offered advice I believe we made the rite decision & it was the kindest think we could have done for Pip.

    My condolences. What a good looking girl. I wonder if AULRO dogs get together in heaven and talk about the Landies they've ridden in?

    Hi Nick. You have my deepest condolences.

    I with SWMBO have been through this and certainly understand your grief.

    I was asked " Is it ignorance or apathy?" I replied "I don't know and I don't care."
