Recently, senior mutt had a check-up.
For nigh on fifteen years senior mutt has been a loyal companion, a trainer of three puppies, a watch-dog, and a valued member of our family. And now she is dying from an ever-growing tumour in her abdomen.

So, for as long as she is able to get about, eat, sleep, and do all the usual things that dogs do; we have decided to let nature take its course.
