Got Chicks?

We hope everyone had a nice Easter weekend.  Hopefully it involved fun, good food, good company and a lot of relaxing!  The Lapdogs' Grammy and Grampy came over yesterday and the humans went out to lunch (only after plenty of attention was given to the furkids, of course).

After the afternoon fun, the Lapdogs ended their Easter with some delicious smelling (and I assume tasting, judging by their drooling and gobbling) gingerbread Chick Pup Cakes from Boston Barkery.   Aren't they just the cutest little things?

I can't stop laughing when I look at the picture of Tut on the left.  He looks like that mischievous little kid who's trying really hard to hide what he's up to.

Zeus had a pretty rough weekend and hasn't been feeling so well.  These little chicks sure did perk up his spirit though!  He even got that left ear up.

As noted above, Zeus has been having some rough days.  It's getting very difficult, as he still has his appetite and wants to eat, but he's vomiting very frequently now... even with three anti-nausea meds.  We have been taking things day by day, and I've been hoping we'd get a clear sign when it was time (refusing to eat, not wanting to get up, etc).  Unfortunately, I just don't think that's going to happen.  When he's not feeling so nauseous, he's wagging his tail and asking for food or attention.  He was very excited to see his Grammy and Grampy yesterday, and I'm so glad they all had that time together.  But he got sick quite often yesterday as well.  My boy has always been a fighter, but I just don't feel we can let him go through this much longer.  I think he's fighting for us at this point, and as heart wrenching as it's going to be to make that tough decision, I think we're going to have to.  I just don't think he's going to give up.

Oh sorry to hear Zeus isn't doing that well. Maybe this article will help you in determing when the right time is for him. http://www.lapoflove.com/Pet_Quality_of_Life_Scale.pdf

I know I bookmarked it for the future. It's really hard to make the decision in the moment, sometimes, so maybe this will help. Hugs.

Those are sweet little cupcakes for the kids. I'm sorry that Zeus is having such a hard time. It sounds like things are getting much worse for you.

Such cute chicks. I'm so sorry to hear about Zeus but I think u are making the right decision. Your boy loves you and you have given him a beautiful life

He loves you so! It's the greatest testament of all to you. You will know what's right for Zeus, and will ultimately have some comfort knowing you gave him the best life he could have ever hoped to have. I am glad you are cherishing every day together.
