Hi Christine – I know I was relieved when I came across this forum also….it definitely made me feel better, that others are experiencing the same issues.

It kills you to see them turn into a different dog, than the one you used to know…Maggie is the same – the lights are on but no one is home. ( I watch a series called ‘The Walking Dead’ and there are zombies on it called ‘Walkers’ that is what we call her – as she walks around aimlessly)

She has days where she isn’t interested in food and other where she just inhales her food. You will know when it is time to make that decision and it won’t be easy at all (we have had to do it once)- we hope she just stays asleep one night. Goodluck
