Had to put my 14.3 yr old black Labrador ebony to sleep this morning even tho it was a very hard decision it was very dignified and peace full,i can now see why be campaign for this to be legal for humans !
We tend to be far kinder to our animals than to ourselves
Life should be about quality not quantity in western culture we've some how got it backwards
Sorry I should have sent you my condolences for your loss I know it's a difficult decision to make as I had to put my dog down 18 months ago , He was only 6 1/2 Tibetan mastiff boxer cross named Rune. He had 2 fits and became aggressive n being a big powerful dog that was no good.
Even though we now have a 5 month old puppy I'm still not over the loss of Rune .
Live well. Cc
So sorry for your loss. I know how hard it is , I have lost 3 dogs during my lifetime and still miss them all.
Have a good holiday, Ebony is safe now with her doggy pals.
Hi Gus really sorry to hear about your dog Ebony . They are so much part of the family . It must've been such a hard decision . I knew someone who had to call the vet out to her home and he wanted to put her dog to sleep but she refused . She had to call the vet back out a second time and that time she let him put the dog to sleep . You did the right thing it's not fair to let them suffer .we have a chocolate lab he's six . They say they are bonkers ! I can imagine how you feel . Enjoy your holiday where are you going ?
Oh Gus I am sad to hear about your dog I am a animal lover as well although Colin won't agree to me having a cat. I know it's not the same a having a dog I just find cat's suit me better. this poem is tattooed on my back for all of those I have loved and lost hope it can help.
Death Is nothing at all I am I & you are you that we were to each other we are still
wear no force air of solemnity laugh as we always laughed at the little things we
shared together play smile pray for me I am but waiting for you around the corner
all is well
nice words bb
Sounds good Gus fingers crossed . How long has this one lasted ?
The 25 year one would be great. Hope they offer you it
So sorry about you losing your dog
It really is the most heartbreaking decision you will ever have to make , the last two dogs i had i had to have put to sleep , remember the good times that you had together i know its so devastating but it is the one last thing that we can do for our animals i got sent this when i had to have my last dog put to sleep through mammory cancer and it was so beautiful i thought i would share it with you
If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come -- please let me go.
Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me till the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve -- it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
your welcome x
