Sadly, my neurotic dog, Dorito aka Max, went to doggy heaven last night. He was shaking badly and I couldn't manage his pain with medication. I took him to the emergency vet to be put to sleep and of course they had to sedate him just to give him an IV. I stayed with him long after the doctor said he was gone because I was sure that the medication wouldn't work on him and that he would jump up any minute. He did not jump up but his mouth did twitch, I can only hope that is because he is eating all the treats he wants in heaven. He was a great guard dog and traveled with me from Charleston to San Diego to Columbia and finally to Indianapolis. I had dreams last night that he woke up after I left. I pretty sure he didn't since the vet didn't call.
