    So Sooie’s had a pretty bad UTI, peeing blood, but her labs and everything came back fine last week. We finally got her medicine but she puked this morning in our son’s room which she never lays in alone and she’s just been laying by the window all day. Hasn’t drank any water really and only ate a little when I hand fed her. Of course can’t get into vet until tomorrow morning but e-vet we spoke to through pet insurance said we just need to watch her and take her to her actual vet and not an animal hospital right now. She said she doesn’t think it’s kidney failure and that her UTI is just causing her a lot of pain but I’ve only ever seen her like this on pain meds post surgeries.

    Catching up in this thread. Sorry for your loss BamaNug. You did the right thing, as hard as it was.

    Cant wait to get back home to give my dog a hug.

    Sorry man. Pancho was almost 15 when that time came. I rarely have anything very prescient to say, but when one of my friends, in a good hearted attempt at support, said they wished it didn’t hurt so bad, I told em that if it didn’t hurt I did it wrong. For some reason, that thought actually helped. If you’re completely gutted, you gave that hound everything you had.

    So this evening at the park, this boxer/lab mix was just taunting the shit out of Carlos. Kept putting his face about 2-3 inches away from his face and following him that way, all hackled up, just waiting for a fight. I could see the hackles up and the lip curled on Carlos so I kept telling him to stay close, stay calm, lay down, etc., still just bugging the shit out of him. He’s literally circling my feet away from this other dog while it acts like a kid saying “NOT TOUCHING NOT TOUCHING”. There were consequences. As we pulled them apart while the other dog’s owner wonders out loud if he should have pulled his dog away sooner, his dog does it again and found out again. I’ve never seen a dog taunt like that. Did have a good laugh when he asked if Carlos was ok. Dude, he’s a heeler, he bites cows for fun.

    Douche bag neighbor decided to be a fucking idiot and let his dog run up to sully and sniff him two days after it got diagnosed with kennel cough. Shocking sully now has it and can’t play with other dogs for two weeks. He regularly plays with 3-4 other dogs so I’m sure they have it too. Poor guy is coughing up a lung.

    Man so sorry for your loss. Something about the dog that's with you from young man to grown man that just can't be replicated. So much change in your life over those years but he's the one constant. They are your first real responsibility, too. You're lucky to have had him for the ride, and he's lucky he got to be there with you. RIP to your good boy.

    I come to y’all with a heavy heart. Buddy my golden retriever had to be put down suddenly today. Came out of nowhere. I am absolutely devastated and have a massive hole in my heart.

    thank you a.tramp

    I’m having a hard time telling anyone because of how much this hurts. If I had to do so in a conversation I’d break down. I got him right after graduating from UF and moving out on my own. He’s my first child and can’t believe he’s gone.

    was fine last night and had to put him down at 1:30 this afternoon. Love your dogs and take nothing for granted.

    Take all the time you need man. It is hard enough when you have a couple days to mentally prepare for it but suddenly has to be crushing. Can tell he must have been a great dog by how much it hurts.

    He suddenly formed a massive tumor in his spleen that burst. He had internal bleeding and spread to his liver and lungs. I had him at the vet on Tuesday as he tore his acl and there was nothing wrong with him other than that.

    He woke up this morning and fell off his bed, peeing over himself which was completely out of character. Then he started panting like he couldn’t breathe.

    The vet let us go out to McDonald’s to get him some cheeseburgers and nugs before we put him down.

    doggo heaven got a great one tonight.

    Just made an appointment for next Wednesday to put our 13-year-old Puggle down. His cognitive decline is to the point where he’s just existing and not living. I’m a mess and don’t know how I’m going to get through this. He was our first baby and both my kids’ favorite toy when they were babies. I know this is the most compassionate thing we can do for him, but it’s harder than I could have ever imagined.

    Sorry man.
    Never thought I’d like a puggle (only ever have had big dogs) but my then girlfriend/now wife had one when we got together. Sadly she had to be put down when she was only 6 but she was a cool dog.

    He was the first small dog I ever had after growing up with boxers. We tried to crate train him for sleeping but he would howl for hours and we were worried we’d get kicked out of the little apartment we were in at the time. After 2 or 3 nights, we put him in bed with us and he’s slept there ever since. He used to love being under the covers and would let you spoon him. I think when his mental decline started, being under the covers was too disorienting. He also stopped being cuddly and would just kind of walk away if you got too close. It’s been hard watching him change but this is brutal.

    Spoil the shit out him Boo MFer!

    Having it been almost a week since I put Buddy down, the day of is the worst. Just miserable.

    Each day after gets a bit better once the raw emotion of having not alive is taken out. Miss Buddy like crazy but at least he wasn't in pain very long so I take comfort in that.

    My goldens red blood cell count was down 30% when I took him in. Unfortunately cancer is extremely common in their breed and seems so unfair because they're the kindest creatures on the planet.

    Our badass Magnolia is having seizure issues and appears to be epileptic. My fiancé swears it’s the nexguard (dose 1 in august and 15 minutes after September dose she had her first seizure) but I just hate how the anti seizure medicine in the last 48 hours has made her a different dog. I’m hoping we can get her back to being the most hyper asshole GSP ever. It taking her a few minutes to realize who I am when I get home from work has ruined my feels. She’s incredibly skittish now and she seems to have tunnel vision, if she can’t see you and you touch her she is beyond startled.

    What is everyone using for pet insurance these days? I know its been discussed a dozen times over the years but I wanted to get the latest info.
    Our little punk is almost 12, and our big girl has beginning arthritis, so I figure its about time to start thinking about this.

    Brady crossed the Rainbow Bridge today, covered in his favorite blanket and with a family picture under his paw. He got cheese at breakfast and an entire bag of his favorite steak treats on the way to the vet. I’m a mess, my wife is a mess, my kids are a mess. I don’t know how we’ll get through this. Here’s a few pics of him through the years. Time, anxiety and cognitive decline got the best of him, but he was a damn good dog and will be so missed. Rest easy, buddy.

    Feel like that’s usually reserved for more aggressive dogs like Rottweilers and pit bulls.
