Casey is about 14 years old in human years. He has had mild seizures since he was a young dog.
Starting Sunday, he had 4 grand mal seizures in 24 hours leaving him confused and partially blind. (He's already deaf.)
While we were at the vet, the vet said, 'you have to understand that after the seizures are over and the dog is recovered, this is no big deal to the dog. They don't think about what it all means. They don't contemplate their own mortality.'
But we, the humans do think about our dog's mortality. And therein lies the challenge.
