We are sad tonight
A week ago he started limping and favoring a back leg. We think he probably has hip dysplasia. It's a common problem among the larger breeds of dogs, and the outlook is not good. Monday we will find out for sure if that's the problem.
There is a surgery that can be performed, but the chances of it helping the dog are slim, and the cost of the surgery is high.
Heather and I had a long talk tonight, and we agreed that the best course of action would probably be to spoil that dog rotten and fulfill his every dream in the next few weeks.
Does anybody have a large female dog in heat? I'm pretty sure that would be on Titan's bucket list. No, he isn't neutered.
Meanwhile, if the diagnosis confirms our fears, we plan to feed him steak and hamburger and whatever else might appeal to him.
I'm so sad tonight. I sure hope we are wrong about what ails him.
