This sucks and I'm scared to death
 
So the dog hasn't been feeling well the last couple of days so we got him a vet appointment yesterday. They did some blood work and results came in not so good. He's slightly anemic and something is going on with his kidneys. He's a 10 year old Rottweiler, so he's getting to about that age. This is something you know is coming when you get a dog, but it's never something you're ready for.

He goes in again in a few hours for some more tests to try to figure out exactly what is going on. What makes matters worse is that I'm scheduled to fly out to Alaska for a week and a half on Saturday morning for business. Depending on exactly what is going on, I certainly don't want to leave me wife home by herself to deal with this. Unfortunately, this late in the game, I'm not sure I can get out of this AK trip.

I'm going to be fine. I know that we've given that dog the best life a dog could possibly ask for and I'm ready for whatever this might turn out to be. I just really don't want my wife to have to go through this by herself. I just know that when the time comes, it's going to be really, really hard on her. We've had him since he was 12 weeks old and almost as long as we've been together. This really sucks. Hopefully I'm completely overreacting and it's nothing serious.

Yeah I hope all works out man, my 8 year old husky had a mini stroke last year mid run. His hind legs where paralyzed for that day and slowly can back over the next two weeks. Just give him some more love and he will be fine even if the worse happens cause at least he went happy.

I hope so too! + vibes for You, your wife and of course your dog!

Don't know how it is with dogs... elderly cats prone to kidney malfunction can often compensate with dietary adaption and then still live a good longer life. Hope it's the case for your dog as well. Positive vibes to you!

Ah that sucks mate. Dogs definitely become part of the family after that long. Let's hope he comes good and if not rest easy in the fact that he's had a great life with a loving family.

Oh man, i hope it's good news with the next lot of tests...

Fuck. He's having emergency surgery first thing in the morning. 75% chance that this is our last night with our boy. Evidently I lied. I'm not fine.

Aww dude!!! My thoughts are with you and your family! Having lost my dog only a few weeks ago, I can empathise with your not being "fine!"

Sending positive vibes for a positive outcome for your family pet! Hang in there man!!!

I really hope surgery helps your dog, I still remember all the pets I've lost due to old age. One of my favorite dogs I ever knew was a Rottweiler my friend owned. That dog was always getting into trouble popping footballs, getting paw prints on the celling trying to eat flies sitting there, knocking the couch over, etc.

It's amazing how they become part of the family with their unconditional love. Positive vibes your way.
