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.

Understand your loss. We had to put our Golden down. I tried to write up our experience, but I could not do it.

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.

Mike:

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.
