    Default Bad day

    Just came back from putting one of our dogs down. Man was it hard to do. Amazing how much an animal affects ones life. The house sure seems a lot emptier.

    Man. So sorry to hear this. Been there and it is a horrible thing to go through. Two items of advice that I was given that really did help my spirits.

    1. Your little buddy is in a better place and is running around pain free. Remember that.
    2. Look into getting another pet. I hope that doesn't come across as harsh, but it really did help us that we had just adopted another dog right before our rottie passed.

    Sorry for your loss man. Dogs truly are our best friends. Losing one is really tough.

    1. We never truly know, but I have already mentioned to my wife that I do hope there's an afterlife and it does help if you believe this.
    2. We still have one dog left, actually one of the siblings, so he's getting a lot more attention now.

    We had to put a shelty down about 12 years ago, but in an emergency situation. I said I would NEVER again get another dog (because of the grief putting him down), yet we got 2 six months later.

    I've found that the years of companionship and joy they give you almost compensate at potentially having to put them to sleep at the latter part of their life.

    Aw crap, it's hard to type through tear covered eyes.

    Thanks for the advice.

    Hang in there bud. It get's easier as time passes. I still miss Buddy our beagle and it's been a year and a half now, but all the thoughts I have now are happy ones. You'll never replace him so don't try, just hang on to the memories and smile!

    We had to do this with my girls brother dog the last time i was home. He had gotten tumors on his couple toes on his back feet about 6-8 months ago and they went ahead and removed his toes and said that it could return. Well it did and with a vengeance. He had lost some of his appetite and then i went to work for three weeks and when I came home he was super skinny, wouldnt eat or really move at all. Some days he would just sit in the same spot all day never getting up. My girls brother took him to the vet and they xrayed him and found the tumors have spread over all his major organs and that we needed to put him down asap or he would suffocate or starve to death. It was a very sad day for everyone, never had to do that before and I wont be looking forward to it when our little dachshunds get to that age.
