Sad (many levels and “warning”canine content)
Ah, sorry to hear it mate. They become part of the family. At least there are lots of owners here that will give you sympathy. Chin up and soon, you’ll just remember the fun times. You’re probably just thinking of her suffering at the moment, but that will wear off.Posted 8 years agoDracSubscriber
Been there too with my old Border Terrier started taking fits and in the end option was to put him on meds for the remainder of his days or let him go. He wasn’t the same dog though when I took him to the vets refused to walk looked even older than he was so the decision was made.
Now my 12 year old Lab has lumps that are just getting bigger all over her but at the minute she’s very lively and doesn’t seem to be in pain not sure if I’ll get another year out of her though.
You get attached to them so much it’s unbelievable.Posted 8 years agokevonakonaMember
Just sad really. She ran around and was happy until the end, although she did sleep a lot and she was coughing due to an enlarged heart pushing on her windpipe. HR was down to 40bpm, as opposed to 90ish. To be fair tho at the end she just lloved dozing in the sun, if dogs could knit she’d have been sitting on the chair knitting in her lap. Sounds silly but it’s true. Anyway she lived well didn’t annoy people or animals, apart from the odd rabbit, and wagged her tail everyday (yes, nay sayers probably just in a pavolovian response to someone who provided food and warmth).Posted 8 years agodogpowerMember
Humans are so good at the symbiotic thing. The old hunting team of dog, horse, hawk and human is something to be proud of (for a change). We’ve got to be careful we don’t forget how it’s done. It’s a great thing to have an agreement with a member of another species.Posted 8 years agoPePPeRSubscriber
I’m sorry to hear that too, I lost my old border terrier in November, she was always a grumbly miserable old thing, but boy do I miss her!
Luckily a 9month old springer spaniel needed rehoming and as a consequence he’ brightened our lived back up again.
Meg will always be missed, she was my families first dog.Posted 8 years agoBeddsMember
That’s rough mate.. we lost our 3 yr old boxer at christmas due to a tumour. Actually thought my heart was going to be ripped out when we made the decision to lose him.. still get choked about it now, but remember the good times, just think that where ever she is, she’s chasing rabbits and giving em hell
and as for other dogs, don’t ever try to replace her, just get another one that you can give a great life too
chin up mate 🙂Posted 8 years ago
