The last two weeks have been a roller coaster here at our house, and now it seems we have a sad but necessary resolution. Our dog Jake has been in the hospital a week now, and while the expectation was that he’d get well, respond to medication, and be able to come home that has not happened. Last night they tried again to feed him orally, and he was unable to keep the tiny bit of food down. His disease (myasenthia gravis) is so strong that he is just not recovering the way most dogs do. At this point in time our chances are slim to none that he will ever be able to come home, and so we’ve had to make the heart breaking decision to put him down.
It is very sad, but I am glad to know we did everything possible and that he’s been quite comfortable down at UC Davis. We will go visit him this evening to send him off with love.
