However this time, something was different....
She would not even eat a treat. She would not even eat human food. She appeared to have lost a little weight.
Note: the average age for a Boxer is 10 to 11 years old, Astrid was 12-14 or so (she was a rescue so we never knew her exact age). Due to this fact I looked up the signs of a dying dog. Never something anyone has to look up but for some reason I felt I needed to look it up. It makes my heart hurt even thinking about it....
However, as I read the list, Astrid met nearly all the criteria....
- Extreme fatigue
- Loss of appetite
- Lack of coordination
- Labored breathing
