Don't Shop Adopt!

The love of my life is a 14 year-old coon hound beagle mutt I adopted when she was 3 months old. My dog Ruby has been my world for years, but now in her golden years she has a laundry list of problems. In the past 6 months she has begun to show her age and I have spared no expense to make her happy. The vet says she is just old and just falling apart, but is experiencing no pain. But it is so hard looking at her now, she can't really use the stairs anymore (lime disease has caused arthritis) she's def (because of chronic ear infections) and has hypothyroid disease so her fur is thin. When she looks at me these days she is still just as happy as ever, just a bit slower. But I can't stop myself from tearing up knowing how old she is and that our time is short now. I'm so scared of losing my best friend I don't know what I will do without her someday...
