    Just need to vent about a major loss suffered this morning, it’s been a rough 2 days.

    Today was a sad day, didn’t have a choice but to put my girl Sandy to sleep. She must’ve felt very uncomfortable in the situation she was in because her instincts randomly kicked in out of nowhere and her reaction was to bite my other dog on the neck, who’s currently in the ICU and by some miracle has a chance of surviving. Sandy was way more than a dog to me. She was my friend and a part of the family. Having her gone feels like a huge part of my childhood is gone.

    I honestly don’t know what I’m going to do without her. It may sound crazy, but when I had nobody to talk to, I talked to her. I don’t know how I’m supposed to adjust to not being greeted by her every morning and every night. She was the only one who could always put a smile on my face, no matter how bad my day was.

    It’s sad to realize she’s gone and it hasn’t quite hit me yet. I can’t even think about her without at least tearing up. I hate that such a great dog can do something so horrible, it just proves that they're still animals, no matter how we look at them. I can't stand that she gave me no choice but to put her down, but I'll always forgive her. Even if my other dog doesn't make it.

    Don’t know what I’m going to do without you Sandy, R.I.P. You'll always be loved and never forgotten.

    I am so sorry for you, but you are so right in how you feel.

    Animals especially dogs can give us unconditional love. They don't betray us or talk about us nor do they judge and condemn us. They love us just the way we are, no changes need to happen. I have yet to meet a person who meets all those qualifications.

    I use to have a horse name Princess that I had for years, she was a Tennessee Walker who could dance. My dad use to ride her in the parades(Mounted Police), and I woke up everday to her in my yard. She was my best friend as well, when she died it was a blow.

    I am sorry for your loss, it will get better.
    Keep Moving my friend, be strong.

    Dogs are descended from wolves (google the evolution/domestication of dogs). Their natural instinct is to bite the neck of their prey.

    My heart goes out to you for your loss; but keep in mind your dog was only following it's natural instinct.

    I'd be devastated if something happened to my beautiful Princess.

    Sorry to hear about your loss. If anything gets me, is when someone loses their dog. I know the bond humans can have with these beautiful animals.

    My suggestion would be to get another dog. In some strange way I would like to believe that is what all dogs who pass would want. To have a fellow dog take their place and be raised in a safe and loving home. There are so many dogs in shelters in death's grips. Saving one will do you both good.....icon_biggrin.gif

    Don't.
    As you have probably learned (the hard way), it is generally not a good idea to have two dogs -at least of the same sex - they can be as jealous as jilted lovers.
    If your other dog does not survive, you would be better off in the long run not to get another dog for quite a while, so you don't end up comparing the new one to the one you have lost.

    Pittbull21, sorry for your loss. You had to do what needed to be done. Sandi was now a serious danger to not just your other dog, but to anyone. Those types of risks cannot be taken likely.

    And Jewlicious, fuck you.

    What an awful, judgmental thing to say to a guy who just reluctantly put his dog down because she was a danger to other animals he loves. What is your brilliant alternative? Because newsflash: the ASPCA doesn't adopt out dogs that maul other animals. They put them down.

    Frankly, who's to say that his personal safety wasn't an issue as well? His 'friend' could have gone for his neck randomly one day.
