    Last night I had to help my buddy Joe in his transition from this world. He was 17. His body was still working and the vet said he wished his blood work looked as good as his but he's been in severe cognitive decline this past year. He's spent the past several months confused and not knowing who he was or where he was half the time. After countless drugs and supplements failing to work, I made the decision to help him pass. It was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do...make the decision to kill the creature I love the most, but I feel I did the right thing. He's been eating a diet exclusively of steak sautéed in butter and chicken livers....his favorite foods. His last moments were of eating steak and being told he was a good boy. I don't think it could have gone any better for him, so why do I feel so rotten?

    I lost my 13-year-old golden retriever in January. I remember telling my mom that I did not think it possible for a man to cry so much over the loss of a pet. But it is.

    The OP is fucked up. He once said that he prefers animals over humans. Aren't humans animals? And he always derails every thread with his misogynistic and racist bullshit. IDGAF about his shit dog.

    Maybe it is time that some "enemies" on this site come together to call out the gratuitous, gross lack of simple human decency that some members feel compelled to engage in... no matter what the cost.

    Seriously, I think you should remove the post. This is just not the right place and time.

    Thanks. But, not exactly. I found him in the middle of the road paralyzed many years ago. So he had to relearn to walk again which took a while and it was very difficult for him. I think he was always traumatized by that experience. He was terrified of loud noises. And the past year or so, he hated to see me approach him because I had to give him so many pills. I think he had a pretty good life but he was always an anxious dog. But he never growled or barked at anyone. Ever. Even when the occasional strange dog would attack him, he would never fight back. All he wanted was peace and quiet. And now he finally has that. icon_cry.gif

    It's the hardest thing I've ever had to do, but at the same time, I know it was right and it felt "good" some how to miss him and her so much...that means it was real and special. Good to know Joe was so special.

    No matter what your past history with someone is, a death of a loved one in their life is NEVER the time or place to pounce on them. What you've done is absolutely disgusting and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    Sorry to hear about your loss, OP.

    Just like the racist and misogynistic shit the asshole OP posts? Nah, I don't think so. I won't delete my comments. He and his fatso alcoholic friend that insulted my mother never delete theirs, why should I delete mine? I bet his dog isn't even dead. He's just attention whoring.

    Because, as far as I can tell, you are a functional adult male that shouldn't have to be told to grow up and act your age? Be the better person if someone has allegedly not been that, otherwise you are no less guilty.

    This is a really fucked up thing to say Xavier...I know you and Scruffy don't get along, but when someone's mourning a loss of a family member (yes, pets included), you have to have some class about it.
