    So tomorrow at 10:30am the vet will come to my home and euthanize my poor old dog. He is a few weeks shy of his 15th birthday. I haven't stopped crying.
    He is the best dog ever.. icon_cry.gif I will miss him so icon_cry.gif

    I'm so sorry. That's an extremely difficult decision and ordeal to go through.

    In HS my German Shepherd (technically my mothers), Rube, was diagnosed with lymphoma. Dogs become a part of your family, they are more loyal than most guys (truly man's best friend). I still have pictures of Rube -- I really am sorry.

    i took him to the vet today. I knew a couple of weeks ago the outcome would not be good. They found a big tumour, amongst the many other maladies of a 15 yr old dog. I want him to go with dignity, kindness, respect and love.
    He is the one and only dog i have ever had..ever.. and my 20 yr old son feels like he is loosing his brother. You end up loving them and look what happens.. icon_sad.gif . If i knew how to post a pic on here, i would… He looked so majestic when i took his pic today… icon_smile.gif

    I had to put both of my dogs (Kelly and Joe) to sleep last year. You can see a video of them in my profile. It was so incredibly hard for me but it looked so easy for them. I'm thankful I had this option because after they're sedated and the final injection is given, they just slip away.

    Oh great, now I'm crying. Ugghhh. Sorry you have to go through this. icon_cry.gif

    Stop crying... You have to be brave for him. I know it is really difficult, but Don't send him off in sadness. He has had a wonderful life with you, and now let him experience a wonderful passing with you. There will be plenty of time for tears later. My compassion goes out to your heart.

    Condolences. Very difficult to deal with the loss of a beloved pet. I still mourn my wolfpup years after I should have gotten over it. And I always told him, so often during his wonderful life: "you're going to break my heart one day".

    I was right.

    Hang in there. That love will always remain while time as it passes makes bearable the pain.

    thanks guys. I posted a pic to my profile. Thanks to the guy who suggested that.
    Im trying to be brave. Im only falling apart when the dog and my son are not around… dumb huh?
    My son just hugged me a few minutes ago… we both cried.
    We got the dog ( Watson) at 5 weeks old.. i fed him from a teaspoon… he fit in the palm of my hand. Such great memories. Im thankful for him… he made me a better person…
    thanks for the support..

    I'm watching him sleep… well, he is sorta sleeping… every few minutes he gives me some 'side eye'. He knows… for the first time in the past week he seems comfortable and kinda relaxed. I doubt i will sleep tonite, id rather watch him, tear up and remind myself of all the fun we had over the years. he and I had such battles over who was the alpha male.. tonite I let him win… icon_cry.gif

    Our condolences. icon_cry.gif

    My husband had a number of dogs, as I have, but he still calls his last one, a Great Dane, "the love of my life". At 10 years old he also had to be euthanized, typical for Dane's.

    That was 20 years ago and my husband has never wanted another dog. They really can become part of your family, and your life.

    Our pets always are a big part of our families !
    When they pass away , we grieve for them as we do for a human .
    The only consolation we have left after their death , are the good memories and the good life we have brought to them ..
    Please , bring your beloved dog to a funeral home that accept pet cremation , they are just a little bit more than the cost at the vet , but it is more personal , they let you prepare the little box to your liking ( toys , bed , clothes etc )
    My thoughts are with you and your son in this difficult moment .
    Hugs to you both .

    Ughhh. I remember that feeling well. You're going to feel numb for a while but at some point you will look back and realize what a great gift you gave him. It's the most loving and selfless act you can do.

    Oh yes.. let's not forget this thread is all about you, your dogs and you Bf's...

    and you still don't see what a narcissistic queen you are, do you?

    Losing a faithful companion who has given unconditional love everyday of their life, always glad to see you and spend time with you is never easy. Stay strong and lean on the good memories.

    I'm so sorry. It takes some time to get over, but it's a part of life. You were both better off for having had each other.

    I was devastated when I lost my sweetie to cancer five years ago. I still have her sister, but she probably doesn't have much more time - she's given me some big scares this year, but so far has come back from the edge each time.
