    Had to put one of my dogs to sleep yesterday

    He was actually my wife's dog, mine via marriage. He was a 15 year old black lab/austrailian shepherd/cocker spaniel mix (named Bear). He had cancer in his lymph nodes and was barely eating or drinking. You could tell just by looking at him that he felt like sh*t. He was always as playful as a puppy even in his later years, but lately he just moped around with a sad look in his eyes. He was so weak that I had to help him stand up if he was lying down. I've had dogs die before, but I've never put one to sleep. What a sh*tty feeling. I know we did the right thing, but that didn't make it any easier.
    Rest in peace Bear

    First of all, sorry to hear about your buddy man. That sucks.

    Secondly, not only did you do the right thing, you did what your "responsible" to do. That's a tough move but it certainly is our obligation as pet owners to stop the discomfort when it's time to do so.

    It's a shitty day for ya, but mope around for a day or two and go start looking for a new one. Not a replacement, but a new adventure.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss. We have had to put 3 dogs to sleep, and had a fourth die in our home over the years. It is never an easy thing to do.

    I'm sorry to hear about your loss, pets become a big part of the family. I know how you're feeling right now, my mom called me a few weeks ago (I'm away at school) to let me know that our cat Spooky had been hit by a car and then died in my sister's arms later that day. She was 15 years old too and I had a really hard time with it.

    Take care of yourself, healing takes time, but know that you did the right thing and that your dog, Bear, is no longer suffering.

    That is an awful thing to have to go through, but you did the right thing. I had to put down my 14 year old German Shepard, and it tore the life out of me, but years later i see that it was really a merciful thing. My prayers are with you...

    Sorry to hear that, mate . We never had a pet, but I was very much let down when my uncle's pet have died, it's really like loosing a family's member.
    But I'm sure your dog is in a better place right now.

    Sad to hear about your dog, it's painful when pets die but you did what you had to do. I hope you start to feel better soon.

    That is sad. Something simular happened to my old dog a few years ago. He was about the same age too.

    I remember when my dog died when I was in junior high, it was a great paranese(sp), big awesome dog to play with. I remember having to help my dad bury him because he was so heavy, and crying having lost him.

    Sorry to hear about losing your dog, it's sucks.

    Oh, the poor puppy. You did the right thing, tho. I don't look forward to the day I have to do that for my dog.

    P1, I am so sorry to hear that. But he is in a better place now. For people who don't have pets, it is sometimes hard to understand our being upset about loosing one. But I know my 10 yr old beagle is a huge part of our family. Dreading the day she goes.
