We went to the vet this morning, and as I suspected, Comet is in the early stages of kidney failure. He's started losing weight and not in a good way. I've watched some of my other dogs and some well-loved humans as they cope with the end days of kidney failure, and it's not pretty. Our vet estimates Comet has 4-6 months of quality life left. Since I'm retiring at the end of the month, I will have plenty of time this summer to spend with him, make him happy, and let him go when he's ready. We'll make it a good time and he'll leave knowing he's a good dog. Then I'll rescue another one, and do it all again.
