    My 12 year old dog is being put to sleep in a few hours. He is suffering from what is probably cancer. I love my dog but I kind of just want to have my dad take him. I know I would feel bad about not being there with him, but I'm scared that I'll feel worse seeing it all. Even if I just go to the vet and step out of the room, I don't want to see the actual process of him leaving our home for good. I don't want to see him weakly walk into the vet with his tail beneath his legs and I don't want to drive back home without him.
    My mom died a few months ago and I am haunted by the memory of me walking into the room and seeing her dead body 10 minutes after she died. I feel like this may be similar. I don't know what to do. Help

    My own experience:

    I had to put a dog down, at the vet. I took him and stayed with him as he was injected. He literally died in my arms on the table. I wanted him to have that comfort, if comfort it was. I had no one else to act in my place, and I wouldn't turn my back on him, drop him off and just walk away, leaving him with strangers. He was my best friend.

    It happened I had to do this during a "duty" day and was in my Army Major's uniform. I didn't want the veterinarian or his staff to see me crying, I thought that was unprofessional of me, a bad image for a soldier.

    So I brought him in wearing my sunglasses, and kept them on. I did cry, though I don't know if they saw it. It's OK if you cry, too. Sometimes life requires you to do things like that. I saw it in terms of duty, things you had to face whether you wanted it or not. Perhaps this is one of those things for you, too.

    You must have a VERY sad and pathetic existence to make up lies online like this. Wow. Just wow.

    More than likely stolen...just a hunch. But yeah, a good post for a troll. icon_lol.gif

    On the bright side, if someone actually has lost a dog (such as a friend of mine a few months ago) that post should help them. icon_biggrin.gif

    I don't agree with that. Guilty before proven innocent?

    Yeah, I often figure these replies help others, besides the OP.

    I'm actually being 100% honest with this post. I have trolled in the past, but my MOM actually did pass away in January. In one of the posts I wrote that it was my dad so I could possibly be more anonymous.


    To most of you, thanks for nothing.

    Oh, and if I don't go my dog will still be going with my dad (who i'd imagine will be in the room with him when he dies). I still can't make up my mind

    If your dog knows you best, then it is your duty to be there with him. Not just your father. Read my earlier.

    It's not about you, it's about him, what's best for him. Part of growing and maturing is recognizing that difference, between your personal interests and those of others. The interests of a family pet no less. Do the right thing, the grown-up thing.

    man... unless there is concrete evidence that so and so exists, then they can't be given the benefit of the doubt. it's funny as hell to see how there's obvious fake profiles where you can google search the images right and get 100 hits of sites that used the same photo 3 or 5 years before so and so registered, having like 40 pic comments of dudes going like "awwwwww... you're hot. can i suck your dick?" they probably sending a shitload of pm's too to a fake profile, unlocking their private pictures. funny because you see some real jock members naked photos floating around on tumblr sites. icon_lol.gif yep....

    no offense but some of you guys really be validating the negative stereotypes about gay guys being superficial, vain or thinking with their dicks. icon_lol.gif it's embarrassing.
    It's a good thing you don't work in the justice system. The image search I did on his pic turned up nothing. I was just going on a hunch because he'd already been outed as a fake.

    And I don't mind my naked pics all over the web. I also hang out at the nude beach sometimes. There's nothing about my body to be ashamed of. It's got a dick, ass, torso, head, and limbs, just every other male out there...nothing significant.

    After going through losing my mom I just don't know if I have it in me to witness that. Isn't it okay if some people prefer to distance themselves from death?

    actually, his pic is a fake. it may not be on the image search now. can't exactly remember BUT the picture is actually some shit that has been cropped and set to black and white. i've seen the original.

    are you afraid that someone you know or an employer or whoever can stumble across that shit and question your character though?
    I used to do soft porn and had my own site. My boss knew about it, and was sad when I shut it down to focus more on work. As for future employers, I screen them to ensure they'll be ok with it. That's what an interview is for. icon_wink.gif

    Fuck off you selfish prick. If your dog is actually being put to sleep, who the FUCK do you think he needs to be there with him in his last moments? HE'S the one being killed and yet you're more concerned about YOUR feelings that his. People like you don't deserve to have animals.

    That was different. It was a joke thread, not a pity thread like this one.

    I say again: this isn't about YOU, this is about HIM.

    What if when your own time comes, all your family & friends say: "Ewww, I can't face this. He's on his own."

    And you die all alone. May not mean much to you today, a far distant hypothetical at 20, but one day it will.

    And what kind of man pushes this duty onto his father? That's a boy's answer. If you think you're ready to take your father's mantle of adulthood, then you will do this. And not push it off onto your father, like a child does.
