I haven’t heard too many details, but my dad and brother talked, and given what they heard from the veterinary surgeon, they have decided to not go forward with the surgery. I haven’t heard anything about how much time Ginger might have left, but they seem to be operating on the belief that they have a decent amount of time, a few weeks or months. My brother has plans to take her to their favorite park as much as he can, and to make sure she gets some chances to swim. They just feel like it’s such a big expense, for an outcome that probably won’t buy her a ton of time and certainly could reduce her quality of life.
I don’t blame them one bit, but it’s still sad. She’s a great dog.
