TOBY, TOBY, TOBY, TOBY...what a week it has been. After suddenly starting to decline - including falling and not being able to get up - I made a vet appointment for Toby, where after consulting with the vet we decided time was up for Toby and that she would come to our house tomorrow to help him "transition" to his next adventure. Of course, this was all terribly, terribly sad and I resolved to stay strong through the weekend and to spoil him as much as possible. Perhaps due to the spoiling - including extra treats - Toby perked up. And continued to perk up! Still falling, but eating with enthusiasm, interested in sniffing and taking walks, etc.- so after days of agonizing and looking for "signs" that the decision was correct, I decided a short while ago to postpone - and cancelled "The Day". Instead, I will take him to see the vet tomorrow and we will try putting him on some new pain killers (he has issues with meds) to keep him comfortable and will let things unfold - he may very well still need to "go" in a week or two - but for whatever reason, tomorrow is not the day. He is sixteen and a half and there's no doubt -that is old for a pup!
And in other news (although the week really was pretty much ALL about Toby!), we had another very successful protest at Whole Foods for selling rabbit meat in Sebastopol - check out the photos in this post - very proud of my mom and husband (a.k.a. the foreman) for being out there with me!!
