I am so terribly sorry to hear that Rick. Dogs are almost always so much better than humans in so many ways. My rescue dog (from five years old) Aggie is nearing her end as now her back legs barely work but she still loves “daddy”. And struggles so very much to keep up when we go for walks..

She is 13 now. I’ll post a pic if I can remember how go do such.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
