Rosie is down.

Sad for your loss. It's heartbreaking to have to make that decision.

It's never easy. But there is no point in suffering. Postponing this is almost always to make the owner feel better, not the dog.

Sorry this happened, and thank you and Manly for caring enough to help the poor dog out.

Now.

Hug


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I have no fucking idea. They are smarter than we think.

RE: When do you put the dog down?
Sorry for your loss, guy. I know how it feels. My wife & I lost a puppy a few years back ... a disk in her back blew out and made her lame and she was in terrible pain. No real fix and likely to happen again even if we could find $20K for the surgery and therapy. She was the cutest little Puggle ... apparently it is a fairly common problem with the breed. My wife and I took weeks to get over it. After a fashion. Still bothers us now & then. It does get better though.

Whether it's a pet or a person, at least they are beyond the reach of suffering. I've lost people to terrible diseases too. Beyond a certain point it is just selfish not to let them go. You did the right thing.

They all collected at the gate leading to the front door. They knew Rosie wasn't coming back.
