sraun: first picture of ziggy (Shih Tzu Ziggy)

He stopped eating overnight Friday / Saturday. He ate over half his dinner Friday, and has been pretty much ignoring any food since then. We put scrambled egg - a real delicacy! - in his mouth on Saturday, and he just let it fall on the floor and ignored then. Since then, any food we put in front of him might get sniffed at, and then he turns his head away.

I'll be calling the vet as soon as possible after they open at 7:30am, and seeing when we can get him in.

I'm very sorry to hear about this. I remember that Rex ate very little during the last weeks of his life, and when a beagle isn't eating, you know the situation is serious.

As to Ziggy, it really sounds like the time has come to let him go. You have my sympathy, and at least you'll be able to remember him as he was.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I remember my Ben's final days, and this is very reminiscent of those...

I'm so sorry. It sounds like it's the right time, and you are doing the best thing you can for him.

And I bet that doesn't help at all.

Much love,

I am so sorry. It is hard, even when one knows one is doing the right thing.
