    Dude, that really sucks. The biggest problem with pets is that they don't live forever.

    This...is my boomstick.

      They take a part of your heart when they go... but they always leave a part of themselves that will stay with you forever.

       

      You did the good and right thing.  It takes guts and love to make that call.  You have both.


      Don't call me Buttercup!

        So sorry for your loss.

                My heart is out to you. Been through the loss of a dog and other pets several times. Sucks big time. It's the absolute worst thing about having animals. So so sorry Sad

                    Bummer!  But ditto on making the right call.  Pets are hard but only because the relationships run deep!

                        Sorry to hear about this. I had a black lab that had osteosarcoma. True pets don't last forever, but their memory does.

                        I'm so vegetarian I don't even eat animal crackers!

                          Phil and MBC, I'm very sorry for your loss, it's always tough to lose a pet.

                            We had Jewell put to sleep this morning.  She was really struggling and we knew it was time.  I am heartbroken.  Sad

                             

                            I am so sorry to hear this, Phil.  Condolences to you and MBC on your family loss.  It's a tough thing to do what yo had to do.  You know it's the right thing, but it sure doesn't make it any easier.

                              Thanks again, everyone.  It's really amazing how attached you can get to an animal.  Jewell is the first dog I ever had, and the first pet I've had to say goodbye to like this.  You always know this day will come when you adopt a pet, but I greatly underestimated how sad it was going to make me.  I am happy that DW and I were right there with her at the very end.  It was heartwrenching, but I am glad we were there for her.
