    Really sorry to hear that. Know how much they are part of the family. Just keep remembering the good times and that you gave him a great home.

    Sorry for your loss. Our Whinnie died just before Christmas, she was old and we knew her time would come at some point, but that didn’t make it any easier.

    Do what you need to do now, whether that’s to cry, go out on the bike, or do nothing but support your family. Also remember the good times and over time it will become easier, but they never leave you.

    RIP Harvey

    Sorry about your lost friend. I had to make the decision to have one of our dogs put down after she had a fit a month or two ago. She was 15 and had a lovely life after being rescued from the streets of Taiwan. Doesn’t make it any easier though. Now we are just waiting for the day the other dog can no longer which at the moment doesn’t seem long away.

    Ah so sad. I’m sure his short life was a happy one. And yes, what a handsome fellah he was πŸ™

    You did the right thing. Doesn’t make it any easier, I’m sure, but you did the right thing.

    He’s chasing the eternal rabbit now.

    Our two border terriers went with a week of each other just over two months ago. Both aged 16yrs old. The house still seems too quiet without them.

    Thanks for the kind words, feel empty as does the house.

    sad times.
    I know this has been posted lots, but it might help us to remember why we endure the little buggers and put up with the grief that they cause us.
    I don’t have a dog, but I often chat to the ones I meet.

    So sorry chap. At least you know that when he was behaving out of character – it wasn’t really him or his fault. You have a couple of years of good memories and he had a couple of years of excellent life being loved. All dogs ask for is to be loved and it sounds like he had that.

    I’m not an animal fan but that’s a lovely looking dog πŸ™

    Scary to think that he could have gone for your children without warning though, I shudder at the thought of a big dog attacking my two.

    Sad news πŸ™

    Don’t post on here much, but read quite often.

    Been a sh*tty day and I just want to unload. Our normally chilled out soppy Doberman X Lab got a bit aggressive and domineering of our two children (10 & 6) and wife whilst I was at work today. Started around lunchtime when he nipped at my son who was sitting of sofa, then showed teeth and snarlled at my wife when told off (she was sitting next to my son at the time).

    He continued showing teeth so was put outside, then would growl when my wife tried to go out to him. She thought something wasn’t right so booked a vet appointment to have him checked. I came home early afternoon thinking he might just be trying to be overly domineering. He’s just two and occassionally would try and be second in the pack if I’d been at home on holiday from work for any length of time, but never aggresive or showing of teeth. Anyway he was fine when I got home, just wanted to play ball etc…

    I put a mussle on him (borrowed from a neighbour) for my wife to take him to the vets, whilst I worked from home looking after the kids, we just assumed they might do some blood tests or something. Half hour later my wife called in tears saying he had to be put down, he’d had a large brain hemorrhage with blood on the brain. Vets said we were lucky he didn’t lose control and go for one of us.

    We got him when he was 3 months from a rescue centre and he loved being out in the forest, walking, running, biking and playing ball with the kids. Absolutely gutted…

    Harvey, rest easy fella πŸ™

    Poor thing but it’s for the best can’t let them suffer.

    I was close to losing my dog on Saturday but we luckily had a better outcome.

    Dogs are really very much part of the family.

    So sorry to hear this terrible news. Hard enough to lose a dog but under such circumstances really rubbish.

    OP – I feel for you. It sounds like you gave him a great home, and did the right thing in not prolonging his suffering.

    If the house is too quiet, why not consider adopting another? Of course he won’t be the same as the dog that you lost, but will have his own personality. I’ve never had dogs, but always cats. Whenever I lost one, I have always adopted another the next day. For me at least, it really helps to have a new one to occupy time and take my mind off of the one that is gone. And it makes a spot in the shelter available, too.

    almost cried reading this, terrible terrible news. They become such huge parts of our lives that we’re never ready to say good bye but when it comes at a time that you’re not ready for and so much earlier than it should of been.

    You’ll never forget him but things will get easier.
