He had another seizure last night. I just made the appointment for 5:45 today. It’s gonna be a rough one.

So sorry to hear that. It's very tough.

We have a 14 year old Shih Tzu-Bichon. He's solid still, but almost completely deaf and my self diagnosis of cataracts. Still personable, eats, shits regularly, etc. But I am not looking forward to the day. He was my wife's dog and I met him at age 4...he is VERY loyal, but I have worn him down to the point where I am a 1B to my wife's 1A. Makes me sad to even think about.

Yesterday was a long, rough day. 

Rest easy, old buddy.

He’s awesome.  Sorry for your loss.  Dogs are the absolute best - but damn, they just don’t live long enough

My sincere condolences.  

I was thinking about your post yesterday.   Our 17 year-old grizzled pup got up from his bed in the middle of the day, looked around like he was lost, then peed in the bed without any whining or whimpering.  I've been taking him outside 4x a day already, had only been 3 hours since last time.  Made me wonder if I'm making that call in the next month or two.
