Well she woke me up at 11:30, needed to go outside to do her business. She did urinate blood again. Drank water and urinated normally so it flushed the blood through?

About 1am she was hungry so I gave her some food. Urinated a little more with some blood, but she didn't have the urgent need and seemed comfortable.

About 2:30am I gave her another dose of antibiotics (roughly 12 hours after the dose I gave her this afternoon). When the earlier dose kicked in she became much more comfortable. My goal is to keep her as comfortable as possible.

Now its almost 3:30am and she is outside laying in the grass.

I'm getting pretty tired, I hope she goes back to sleep soon. She's been up the whole time. Had some snacks, dozed for a little while (maybe 15 or 20 minutes?) but she never actually fell back to sleep.

In between all that she had some snacks, got some ear rubs, and generally just seemed to like having me laying on the floor next to her.

She is not uncomfortable. Just not sleeping!

I'm sorry to hear about her troubles. I can't offer any advice but you (both) have my heartfelt sympathy.

Sorry to hear that Bob. But she no longer will feel any pain and can use her legs again. I know it's hard, been through it several times.

Bob, that's probably the hardest decision you will ever have to make in your life. Console yourself with the fact that Misha is pain free and in a good place.

I know were your at Bob...

Tough day. More to come. Eventually with some time, it will become less painful, as life takes the center stage once again.. The both of you enjoyed her life with your family. She was truly a very lucky dog to have had you for her master. If she could, I am sure she would tell you so...

There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of my husky dog, Shilo. But I also know that there was nothing in his future but pain and suffering, from a problem that can not be fixed.. And there is that tough choice again..

Sorry for your loss. Dogs are a mirracle from heaven I believe. To connect with one and live with them is truly a wonderful thing..

Best regards, Kirk

Just want to say THANK YOU to everyone.

This was a pretty tough weekend. Saturday was total crap. After we left the vet's office we stopped off at Walmart to buy a rake ... a lady bashed in the rear side door of my Touareg while she was backing out of a parking space. So yea me. Just the icing on the crap cake.

On the bright side the lovely Mrs_Bob wants to adopt a pair of Akitas from the Midwest Akita Rescue Society as soon as we return home from our hike across Spain. So in August we hope to have some new companions in our home.

M.A.R.S. has some bonded pairs in foster care now, not sure that either pair would be available when we come back, but we would gladly adopt what they have when we return: http://www.akitas.org/index.html
