Our Dog Buddy, Luke

Our little buddy, Luke has already been deaf and with impaired vision from cataracts, but lately he has also started losing weight and his hips are not good. He has trouble doing stairs and sometimes his back legs want to give out.

Lotus and I took him to the vet today and we learned he has some kidney failure and heart issues. He now has a heart pill and some pain medication for the joints. He still eats great, gets excited to be with us and doesn’t have any trouble going outside to potty so we’ll do what we can for him. I forgot to ask if she thought there was a timeline we should expect with all of these things going on. We will sure be sad. He’s been part of the family since before kids and helped keep our dining room floor clean through all of the kid’s toddler years. Couldn’t have gotten through it without him!

    You have been very faithful in taking care of Luke. Old doggie still enjoying life. I remember Jason helping me, when Rex was dying….carrying him to the car for me, and into the pet clinic for the last time. 🙁

    Poor Lukers. I remember when you first got him as a little puppy – a little ball of fur. Part of the family forever. I’m glad that he gets to be with such a wonderful family that is keeping him happy and comfortable.
