Well this certainly has been a horrible year for me. I'm currently attending to my 17 year old Lhasa Apso who had a massive stroke late last night. I've been up all night trying to comfort him the best I can until he passes over. It looked like a seizure in the beginning - foaming mouth, lack of coordination. Then the shaking and uncontrollable shaking & twitching started, lasted 5 hours. Now it is just the twitching as he is winding down. I can honestly say this is something I wish I never was a part of. Many people say take them to the vet and put them down. I don't have it in me to kill my "children". It would be nice if you would just go to sleep and not wake up.
