Yep, that's not working anymore, as in Hank Hill's advice to a heartbroken Luanne after her boyfriend either broke up with her or died, "you need to swallow all that pain." And then Luanne says "but it still hurts" and so Hank says "just push it down further." Or something to that effect, I don't remember the exact quote. But I'm a Texan and that's what I'm trying to do with this little bit of trauma.
Roxie's dying. She can't walk anymore. Tim has a post about the details if you care to be filled in. We have an appointment with the vet tomorrow afternoon. And I think it's going to be THE appointment. I'm dealing with it by not thinking about it or dealing with it. I've talked about her dying in the abstract for so long that now that it's probably finally going to happen, I can't believe it. She looks pitiful and I really don't want to her to go through pain anymore, although at the same time I feel guilty even considering putting her to sleep. But she can't walk. And she has trouble standing upright. So I can't believe that can be any kind of life to live for a dog. Damn, getting old sucks.
