He’s still holding on

Biggie is still holding on. He’s a little brighter, although our dad is refusing to take him to the vet. I am absolutely appauled at our dad but he wont do it, he says its because he doesnt have the money for vet bills, but to me, if your dog is ill, then you do all you can to help him, and not let him suffer. To me that is what I would do. You would get the money even if you have to borrow it. I wouldnt have minded paying some of the costs to take biggie to the vets. Instead my dad is giving him painkillers, that you’d give to a human. Which I feel he shouldnt do. But I am not saying anything, because I’ll only land myself in a lot of trouble and it will only cause a lot of disagreement. Biggie has eaten a few bits of kibble, and a little bit of cooked ham, but thats it. He is drinking though. He’s still very weak. He’s just laying down a lot. For now he’s holding his own but for how long I dont know. I hope if he does go it will be in his sleep…he is 13.5 and its probably getting close to his time to go. He’s not whimpering or howling or anything but every now and then he’s panting and I think thats because he’s in pain. Please continue to send up prayers for him and for my dad too, even though he is making me so angry at the moment. My dad does love biggie very much. He literally saved my dads life, when my dad quit drinking for a few years, he threw all of his energy into caring for biggie, who was much younger at the time. He’d walk him every day and it kept him busy and kept him from thinking about alcohol. So he has a lot to thank biggie for. I just wish he’d do the right thing and bring him in to the vets to see what is wrong with him.
