I'm so very sorry. If you question what the vet said, then for your own peace of mind get another opinion. There is nothing worse than regret when it comes to our beloved pets. And I mean that for every single thing you do with your dog and for your dog. Strive for no regret. They aren't with us nearly long enough. And as much as we might wish it later, we don't get do-overs.
If nothing changes and your time is short, then do every single thing your dog loves. Make every day her best day. What makes her happiest? Even if it's just spending time with you and getting belly rubs, and the best treats she can imagine. Make every moment count.
And I'm sorry for even saying this, because it's horrible to even think, but if the time does come that you have to say goodbye, don't let her face that with a stranger. You're her comfort and her family and her happiness. She needs to be with you.
Give her kisses for me.
Side note. I do know what you're going through. I went through something very similar. My dog was also 10. Also acted like a puppy. His diagnosis was a shock and it broke my heart. I had to think about very tough decisions. He was a super hero. He slowed down some, but he was amazing and still played and was happy and always eager to please. He only lived another 2 weeks and right up until his last hours he was up playing. He passed so suddenly that night. And though it took some time to see it, that's something I can be thankful for. But, I still want my do-over.
So sorry for what you're going through.
