Not ready yet.
Tira, my other dog, is going on 14 years old. Thats a lot of years for a beagle. When I was home two weekends ago, she started breathing really heavily Saturday night. It was really scary, watching her pant just sitting there. She kept it up all night, so to the vet for her. Apparently her heart is failing. She's on medicines various, now, but I can't help but be scared. We just lost Rudi, I'm not ready to lose Tira too. What will the Jospe household be like without beagles? I can't even contemplate that scenario right now.
We think she's ok for now, though. She eats, sleeps, poops, sniffs, the necessary parts of life for a happy hound. Hang in there, little rabbit hunter...
