    That's great news d12. So happy your dog was able to recover and you are able to share more memories with her.

    Update on Yoshi..
    He was able to come home last night. The nurse fed him a hamburger patty and he ate it all so the doctor said he can come home.

    Of course he's still very weak and he didn't sleep thru the night. I cleared out the living room and moved his bed and our mattress downstairs. I just tried to calm him all night till he fell asleep. I could see it in his eyes that he was in a bit of pain. So heart breaking to see him like that.

    We spent all day with him hand feeding him and helping him get up and down to go to the bathroom. He's doing much better tonight and is fast asleep right next to me.

    When we picked him up..The moment I saw his face light up and trying to wag his tail when he saw us I knew we made the right decision. So glad he was able to make it thru surgery. Just hope he's on the road to recovery from this ordeal so we can cherish what time we have left with him.

    Thank you again everyone for all your well wishes and personal stories. I'll keep everyone updated. I'm just so happy to have Yoshi back home!!!

    Fantastic news! Yoshi sounds like a fighter and a great friend.

    I laughed when you said you moved your mattress into the living room, as we did the same thing years ago when one of our dogs had surgery. Enjoy this time with Yoshi!

    Wow I went through a similar situation about a month ago. Our family dog was also 12/13yrs old, he was unable to walk on his hind legs anymore so I took him into the emergency room. Vet said surgery was an option but he most likely wouldn't be able to walk anymore. I didn't want him to live like that so I figured he lived a full life and opted to end his pain and euthanize him.

    It was one of the hardest decisions I've had to make. I literally broke down immediately when the vet said he wouldn't be able to walk again. I probably should have been, but wasn't prepared for it. The vet gave him a pain shot so I could take him home and let the family see him one last time. When I'm brought him back to put him to sleep, and went info the room to see him one last time, it was extremely tough. He was freaking out and even with use of only his front legs, tried to crawl off the stretcher towards me. I briefly thought about changing my mind but felt it was being selfish and he's been through enough pain and suffering.

    So I let him go. It sucked that he was gone but good to see him go peacefully. I had him since high school, now 29, and it was strange going back to my parents house and not seeing him anymore. I got him cremated so his memory will last forever.

    I'm glad your buddy pulled through.

    Just a quick update. It's been a week since yoshi underwent emergency surgery. Good news is he seems to be doing well. He walks with a limp and has trouble getting up but he's on the road to recovery. He seems to be in good spirit and has a healthy appetite. Going to enjoy and cherish every moment I have with him. Thank you everyone for all your comments, thoughts and wishes. This community and forum truly is awesome!!

    thanks for the update! I suspect Yoshi probably doesn't mind the limp, as long as he has you.

    one question: is your bed still downstairs on the floor with Yoshi...such a cute story.

    Yup. I'm still camped downstairs with yoshi next to me.. Don't want him exerting himself too much with stairs yet. I have my laptop, ipad and tv all in the living room. I'm good to go :)

    Good to heat.

    I remember the nights i spend in the livingroom when my dog was recovering from being very sick. They are nice memories (since she got better). My dog loved being able to be on the matras with me and my wife.

    glad to hear your dog recovered and is doing well. I heard a co worker talking about his dog on his way out, scared me to death because my dog is 11 and it won't be long before he gets to that age. I think about it constantly, I fear losing the little guy but I know the time will come. It makes me really not want to own a dog again, maybe foster and find a good home but I'm terrified of the feeling once they leave.
