Most of you are aware of Booger's recent health issues. In case you have missed the previous thread, here it is. http://www.basenjiforums.com/showthread.php?t=5208&page=3
I had hoped for a few days that Booger was improving, but that no longer seems the case. He seemed like his old self for about 3 or 4 days, but since then has been steadily declining again. He is extremely lethargic and sluggish, and all he does is sleep. He has little enthusiasm for eating; he seems to do it more out of habit than hunger. He literally lays down on the floor to eat, as if he doesn't have the energy to eat standing up. Despite increasing his food a little, he continues to lose weight. Except to go out to potty & to get up to eat, Booger hardly moves anymore. He just doesn't seem to have the energy. When we come home now we have to go find him instead of him running to greet us.
Andrew & I just had a discussion about where to go from here. I'm going to speak with the vet one more time tomorrow to see what she says, but Andrew seems to think Booger no longer has quality of life. I completely agree, but the alternative is unthinkable to me. He is only 2 years old, and I am bawling just thinking about this.
I'm hoping by some miracle that if I have enough people pulling for him, maybe he can make a miraculous recovery. Please keep us in your thoughts as we go through the rest of this week, and I will keep you all updated as the week progresses.
