I have not brought this up in my blog yet because it is too painful to talk about. My dog Belty is the best dog in the history of the world. Last week, a week ago today, Belty had another stroke.
He had a stroke another time, and he was able to recover from it. At first his eyes shook and his head tilted and he could not walk straight. But, in time, he was back to his old happy self, and we were able to relax again.
On top of his strokes, he has also been suffering with kidney disease for the past year. We have had pretty good success with managing it by giving him special food that he can digest easier.
This time,, with everything Belty has been through, we are afraid he will not recover. He is 14 now, and I realize that God will take him sooner than later. It does not make it any easier, though.
Belty is having a hard time getting around and he is not eating. He is starting to dwindle away. I have been praying to God to take him all at once and not let him suffer by dwindling away and having a lot of pain.
Anyway, I just had to talk about it. I would appreciate prayers from dog lovers who understand how painful this is. I would also appreciate kind thoughts from those of you who do not pray.
