    Last night one of our dogs was acting weird and stank. I checked her out and she must of ate a sock or something. Her stomach was rock hard and her guts where coming out of you know where. Called Evil at play practice and told her. She came home and we decided the dog needed to be put down. We also talked about another one of our dogs that was old toothless and getting mean. I new she needed to be put down awhile ago but was putting it off. We talked to the boys and agreed to do it now to instead of having to go through it again in 6 months. Sooo my oldest and I took they out to a shelter belt and I had to do it. I always hate having to do it but I couldn't let someone else do it. Could sleep all night. And today sucked to it was rough going to work and not thinking about it. I miss my dogs.

    That sucks moona.

    One of mine was killed by the neighbors dogs and I came home and found her in the back yard. She was already gone. That was rough enough.

    I feel for you guys.

    It had to be done to end the suffering of an animal in distress.
    And the chance another might hurt your family , but its done and it is the down side to having pets we all have to deal with.

  10. I know how you feel almost a year ago we had to put down Zoe, our chow retriever mix. Sweetest old girl anybody knew... She was 18 1/2/ and active right up until the night before... God I miss her yesterday we had to take Nikita our chow husky in for teeth cleaning and surgery. He's 17 and still trots out a 3/4 mile walk. I dread that day.
    I will pm you something tonight when I get home I think you'll understand.

    Zoe is the one on the pillow.

    That's rough man. I had to put my kid's dog down a long time ago and it can be a tough call, but you know you did the right thing.

  15. I had one dog as a kid. he was there before i was born. All i knew. A truly wonderful boy dog relationship. My dad put him down when i was 11. We came home one night and i found him lying under a pine tree he couldn't walk, couldn't see, wouldn't eat steak. I still get teary eyed remembering the last time he licked my face. And i can still remember hearing that 22 shot with my head stuffed in the couch.

    I was a wreck the next day at school couldn't stop crying, every time someone asked what was wrong it just got worse, so i got sent home.

    It was terrible. I still miss that dog, and I am dreading the day i have to do it. I'm sure it wasn't any easier on my dad.

    But i am glad we didn't put him through a miserable car ride to die on a cold table surrounded by strangers.

    I believe what you did is much nicer for the dog.

    That really sucks moonz. Thankfully, I have never had to do that yet. I grew up in apartments so never really had pets. We have had our dog over six years now, and we think she is about 8. SO, someday, the time will come and I am not looking forward to it
     
  17. Sorry for your loss.

    I just put my best friend of 15 years down a couple of weeks ago. She was the best.

    Man my heart goes out to you brother. I lost my K9 partner a while back.
    I'm sure they are playing on green fields now.
