Linda, when I read this post I thought "maybe it's not just me wondering what is going on". In January my younger brothers dog (9) suddenly and rapidly declined to the point of paralysis. He was pts in early Feb. I said goodbye to my own sweet soul dog June 5th, unexpectedly and am still riling from the grief and guilt, today is officially week 7 and it has been very hard. Then on Monday morning I received a text message from my brother that his other dog (10), who had been diagnosed with kidney failure only a week prior, had passed away naturally at home in his arms.
So much loss! What a difficult year this has been for so, so many :(
