Having to euthanize your dog....
Posted 12 December 2011 - 06:30 AM
We first invited Obi-Wan (Obi for short) to be a part of our family in 1999, when he was a year old. A large sheepdog, he lived to be thirteen, which is about three years beyond the life expectancy of a dog that size. We mainly adopted him so that he could possibly mate with Hannah (d. 2006), our other sheepdog, and produce puppies. That never happened, alas, but Obi still brought us much love and joy, and I loved him, as I do all my dogs and my one cat, almost as much as a human family member.

On a somewhat positive note, we found a vet who was willing to drive out to our house and adminster the euthanasia on-site, so Obi could slip away peacefully at home, surrounded by his loved ones who gently carried him out to the backyard for burial once it was finished.
I know this is a depressing thread, so feel free not to comment unless you'd like to. But I would have felt it doing him an injustice if I didn't post something here. As the group Oasis would sing, "D'you Know What I Mean?"

I'm sorry for your loss Petch, I've got two doggies myself and I know I don't ever want to be in the situation you found yourself in
I've spent my entire life pretending I'm not one....
