    I cried harder when Kinder was put down, from twisted intestines, than when my mother and father both died from cancer. For them it was a blessed relief from a protracted agony… for Kinder it was a complete shock, I came home from work and my husband greeted me with the news.

    It’s the hard truth every pet owner faces. Got a friend who’s there right now. Our dog is only 6, so that’s a ways down the road for us.

    Having a home euthanasia is worth the money.
    I worked at a clinic for only a month, it was heartbreaking how many people just dropped their dogs off to be put down, and left. The poor things always looked bewildered..

    I’ve been there. I still bawl like a baby sometimes over my fur-babies.

    The vet came to the house and I held her in my arms. I feel I gave her the best life and had to let her go the same way.

    and the drive home even longer.
    but look at the bright side you will be sweeping up reminders two years on, at least if it had any shepard in it.

    I think it is their absolute trust that makes it so hard. They are so excited to go for a ride with Dad! They are a worthy pack member and getting some special attention. They wag and smile right up to the end. It is unbelievably hard to bear. But they are so worth it!

    Despite you thinking I’m a ‘geriatric’ bully – nothing could be further from the truth.

    I was genuinly touched by your experience and honesty.

    Losing a companion like that can be very hard. I have had similar experiences.

    I am sorry for all your losses, finding out like that makes it harder.

    I think we all have had this sad experience, whether with a dog or a cat. Lost one of each last year. Have only a dog now.

    It’s been 6 months since I said goodbye to my girl and there’s tear in my eyes now! Saw a bumper sticker on the way to work the other day that said “Love my Labrador”…cried the rest of the way in. she was my best friend and I’ll always miss her….
