More Bad News

So today I took Rocky to the vet. He is 2 years old and has severe and degenerative arthritis in both of his front paws and issues with his back knees. He may need surgery on his back knees at some point and he may need physical therapy. They said they can give me medication to manage his pain. But he is 2 years old and now he is facing a life time of pain.

I don't know what to do. He already has a lot of damage from the arthritis and there is nothing they can do for his front legs. I don't know if I can subject him to a life time of pain. So not only am I going to lose Smokey soon, but now it's possible that I may lose Rocky all too soon. The dog has some strikes against him, he's aggressive and now this. My poor boys.

I bought them Halloween costumes and I am going to enter them into a costume contest. Smokey is going to be a police dog and Rocky is going to be a convict. I hope they win some prize. Here are their pictures.
