THANK YOU to everyone for your comments and suggestions. This forum is awesome, I wish I had more time to read through every topic on here, and to fully figure out how to use this board! (I keep looking for a "like" button).
We are working hard to train her to go potty on pee pads on the back deck, so far, she's not understanding what I want her to do, but I'll keep at it. I know if she didn't have to go up and down the stairs she would be more comfortable and I'm sure she would enjoy life a little more. Again this morning she "played" with Livi and Beck, she's always happy to see them. I agree I think/hope I can see it in her eyes when she's ready to go. I'll try to not look at her through my "mom goggles"...(The Goldbergs) ...the goggles all mom's have, they allow them to see their kid as perfect.
They make potty grassy things you can buy and I think put a tinkle pad under them. So maybe that's an idea??
So sorry you're going through this, I'll be praying
Sorry to hear you going through this... Try some Rhus Tox for her arthritis. You can get it from a health grocery store or online.
I've been down this road with two bullies. I do agree that when the time comes a mobile vet would be best. My heart breaks for you.

My Mickey - who is 10-11 years old too - has severe arthritis in his spine and hips. I have recently put him on Tramadol and it seems to be helping him. I was having trouble with him sleeping at night - he was up and down all night. Now he sleeps most of the night. I had to put my Lilly down two years ago and it was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but she had lymphoma and she stayed with me as long as she could, but one day I knew it was time. She knew it was hard for me and like the trooper she was she tried her best not to make it too hard for me. My prayers are with you.
