Susan, it is good to hear she is doing so well with the heart issues.. The arthritis is so difficult to handle as far as pain relief. Our pug that we lost 2 weeks before he turned 17, suffered from it ao much, even with meds.
Neko goes in every 3 months to check his heart murmur. His Lasix and his Benazephril have done a really good job in controlling the coughing most days. I notice he does sleep alot more than before, but he will be 13 on March 12th.. so his age likely contributes to his sleeping more.

Let them be, stop expecting things from people who cannot provide those things, and recognize that we can live happy, productive lives regardless of what others, even close relatives, are doing or saying."
