Thank you all for your kind replies, Madge and Ell you are spot on and thank you for being there for me.

My dog is fading and there is nothing I can do except to be with him right now other than to make the decision as to when he has to be put to sleep, all that can be done is being done and he is comfortable and not in pain and I will stay with him on the floor until that decision is made.

The addiction is so insignificant compared to a good friend who has always been there
