Last fall we lost our Golden retriever due to a hemangiosarcoma. Same thing—panting constantly and started to urinate in the house. The vet said they’d see what they could do, but it turned out to be metastatic. We made the decision to put her down after work, but she died before we could get to the vet’s. Thankfully, the kind vet laid down with her at the end. It still breaks my heart that we didn’t act sooner and weren’t there.
So regarding Kail, as much as I dislike her personality, in this case she did the right thing, imo.
Chelsea was calmer than I would’ve been with grandma Donna. Donna just wants to somehow “fix” Adam by engineering daddy/daughter time and family togetherness. It doesn’t work, anyway. Adam needs to fix himself and make the effort on his own to have a relationship with his daughter.
