Sucks...

Post by USMCWeatherMan on 11/3/2015, 22:47

Have to put my dog to sleep. He's got a degenerative spinal condition common in German Shepherds where the rear legs start paralysis and it works its way up. Trying to reason with myself that its the best thing, he's had a great life...almost 14 years old which is pretty good for the breed. He's been a great member of the family. Part of life and owning a pet I suppose.

Oh no Awu Sad . I can feel your pain bud, we had a cream GSD that had pancreatic cancer that we had to have put to sleep 7 years ago, she was a rescue GSD.

But a week later after my Bro had her put to sleep he couldn't be without a dog, and he ended up with another rescue GSD that was 2 years old, she's now nine and we count every day a blessing she's here. She's going grey round the face and every time I see her I worry bout her getting older and hoping that our 11 month old daughter will get to grow up with her as much and as long as possible. She's still like a big puppy tho and I hope she's got many more years in her yet.

But that aside, I know it's a tough choice and you'll make the right one. I feel for you mate, I really do Sad

I hate losing dogs, had a border collie that would nearly talk to you, for about 6 years, then was out on the road and got hit by a car. They really are like part of the family at times Sad

Thx everyone. We know what needs to be done. Last night he needed to do his "business" but could even get up to do it. I believe it would be at this point when most humans would become miserable....not being to get up and go to the bathroom yourself. He is such a strong and noble dog I cant bear to see him like this.

Indy, its one of the biggest concerns we have; our 4 year old is so attached to him. He was inconsolable when we had to put our other dog down 2 years ago due to cancer. But I think having the other helped him through it, so we are expecting him to be pretty upset. My oldest understands, he's not happy about it like us, but understands.

Tomorrow morning is the time; he gets a big steak dinner tonight for dinner and bacon for breakfast tomorrow morning.

We'll have to see how we do without a dog for a while. I dont think I could get another right away, but I dont think I can go too long without one. They really are part of the family!
