Astrology in real life
She is now utterly and completely both deaf and blind. Due this, she no longer runs down the hall, she walks. She is no pain but this makes her seem a real granny. Physically she is fine. She has no pain, she just can’t see a damned thing and I mean not a damned thing.
She makes it around the house just fine. She has no problem getting into her bed or onto the couch where she sleeps at night, however she does weirdo (even for Dora) things now, like she can’t tell where the soup in the bowl starts. Yep, my husband set his bowl down for her to finish and she started taking licks up way to high, her tongue darting out. She also has trouble in the back yard.
The house has a layout but the yard is wide open so she gets out there and loses direction. She always finds her way back but it’s not the easiest thing. I yell her name even though she can’t hear me, just in case and have tried stomping my feet so she can feel it and get her direction but really none of this helps. She just finds her way in eventually and at this point I don’t go out and get her because I don’t think she would like it one bit.
Not being able to see, she is more stressed and less peaceful and has very little tolerance. The fact is she doesn’t know what is going on and she has taken to biting indiscriminately.
By that I mean, she walked up to me out of blue sky and bit me in the leg – HARD. That was 10 days ago and I still have a dark bruise that I can see will last the better part of the month. Yesterday she did the same thing to Vid, she broke the skin and he likely going to be as bruised as I am, I don’t know.
She’s biting with all her might and I am pretty sure she’d have taken a chunk of skin out of our legs if she had more teeth, as it is it hurts and I mean mightily.
I guess we all know we are going to have to put her down and no one wants to do it so I don’t know how it is going to be done but I also don’t think we are likely to see anything improve and so I have to write this.
Right now she is sleeping peacefully next to me as always and when my husband comes home tomorrow, she will be glad to see her and we really don’t want to kill her, see? Because all she is doing is acting like a dog… and old dog who can’t see and is a little pissed about it, do you blame her?
We will definitely have to put here down before next winter. She is too old and it is too cold, she gets lost outside, especially in the snow so she like to crap and whatever else in the house now which…
Well I don’t know what to say. We all want her to have her natural life span and so this is where it is.
