I'm not trading her in for being grey or old at all!
She's getting to the point where she can't walk (hardly at all). She is now having difficulty controlling anything on her back end (except her tail...which always wags), so she's struggling with walking, bowel movements and urinating. And she's feeling ashamed as a result. We don't get mad at her at all, but she's ashamed all the same.
She's getting plenty of oxygen and her gums are pink as they should be.
ETA...she's a proud champion hunting dog, and I always look at things from a 'quality' of life perspective, rather than 'quantity'. IMO humans strive for 'quantity' with pets often times over 'quality'. To me that kind of seems selfish and cruel.
Also, I'm not doing anything at all just yet, but I can tell the time is getting near, that's all.
Dogs never die. They don’t know how to. They get tired and very old, and their bones hurt. Of course, they don’t die. If they did they would not want to always go for a walk, even long after their old bones say:” No, no, not a good idea. Let’s not go for a walk.”
