Michael I am very sorry to hear about your loss. I can not tell you how much I dread what you are going through. I have not had that experience yet as a adult.
Sorry

It's always a sad time when faced with such a decision, then having to live with the knowledge that you had to actually go through with it... tough indeed. Sorry for your loss.

Sad Day in Our House

I do feel your pain. The day after Christmas 07 we had to put down our Toby. He was a rescued English Springer Spaniel. So we are not sure how old he was because as a rescued dog you're never really sure of age. Through all the issues he had as a rescued dog, neglect, heart worm etc What he finally scummed to was old age. But, we had a great 6 years with him and he brought us lots of joy.

I went down that road about 6 yrs ago. It's not an easy decision - or a pleasant one. Remember the fun he gave you and your family. It's amazing how attached we become to pets.

I'm sorry for your loss. I lost two of my little animal friends during 2007. I still expect to see them in their cozy hiding places when I walk by. Be assured and happy that Max will always live on in your memory.

I am really sorry to hear about your loss. Had to do the same thing a year ago -- hardest thing I ever did.

God was good to me and brought another dog into my life. He will never replace our Max, but he is a new joy. Perhaps there is a new critter in your future to help with your loss, too.

God bless:

My condolences. Whoever said "you'll always have the memories" is right.

Keep Max in your memories and he'll never die.

I am sorry to hear about your loss and I feel for you. I lost one of my best friends 6 years ago. It took me months to get over it. I think about her everyday. She was a great golden retriever. Someone gave me this poem that I think helps. Here is a link. http://www.petloss.com/poems/maingrp/rainbowb.htm

I also feel for you also because my other dog I found out in Sept that she has mouth cancer as well. They gave her only 4 months at the time but she is still going. It will get better.

I did a lot of reading after I had to put my first dog down and had a hard time forgiving myself for putting her down. But I did the right thing and I am sure you did as well. That is the item I found hardest to get over. I also found that some people have a harder time with the loss of a pet then they do with a loved one because your never sure what the animal thought of you or you know that the dog showed you unconditional love. I like to tell people that a cat is a lot like people, they love you on their terms but a dog is like god, he loves you unconditionally. Isn't funny that dog is god spelled backwards.

Take care. Tom

Take care and don't be afraid to talk to others. This helps with the healing.

Sorry to hear of your loss, Mike. I also had to make that decision a few years back. I was very thankful that I had the ability to end my pups suffering. Good luck to you and your family getting through this difficult time.

Sorry for your loss. We are on the verge of similar here - Mahto's back legs aren't working well. He's not in pain, still mooching, etc, but has a lot of trouble with stairs and slippery surfaces. We get that it's almost time, but we ain't ready. Dang! A ride sure would help!

You are on our list.

My condolences to you and your family. My german shepard is 17 years old and his hips are shot. It is painful to see him get up off the ground. I may need to make a similar decision as you did in the near near future.

Again, I am sorry for your loss.

My Best Friend Bridgette

I know how you feel. Three years ago we had to have our Bichon Frise put to sleep. I said I would never have another dog and go through that again. We loved that dog so much it was part of our family and I still miss her. About six months later a lady brought a Border Collie to our house. It had been turned loose and had no home and this lady could not keep it. It was starving and did not look very healthy. It was about 1-1/2 years old. We took it in and nursed it back to health. It has turned out to be such a great dog. It is so grateful to have a home. When I read this about Max all I could think is how I would feel if it was Bridgette our Border Collie. I am really sorry for your lose. You really should get you another dog.

Mike and Marie,

Very sorry to hear the news of the loss of your "baby". I still often think about our dog, Molly, and having to put her down 6 years ago at nearly 18 years of age. Our family pets do, in fact, become our children. Our thoughts are with you.

We are so sorry for the great loss!! We put one our goldens down 2 years ago and sometimes it still hurts. My wife will never do it again. When the next of our 3 go we will do it at home and let him go in peace.
Again we are so sad, get another one it will help but the pain will never go away all the way. remember the fun, you will see him again in another place.
