What turned out to be the last photo of Daisy

This may well end up being the last photo I ever took of Daisy. (EDIT: It was.)

I didn't see her this morning, but sometimes their whereabouts aren't obvioius, so not unusual as such. Heard a noise that normally indicates Monkey has found a bug/butterfly/mouse to play with, so went to check. No, it was Daisy trying to move because her back legs were paralysed. Phoned the vet in hysterics.

Blood clot.

The prognosis isn't good. They've taken her in to try and treat it, and if she doesn't improve in the next 24 hours or so, she'll need to be put to sleep because there's nothing more they can do. If she improves, they can do tests and find out the underlying cause, but she'll need to be on medication for the rest of her life and is likely to have another blood clot again within the next six months.

She seemed fine yesterday, and by this time tomorrow, she might have left a Daisy-sized hole in our hearts and lives.
