We had to put my little pup down today. It is for the best but that didn't make it any easier. But I think after this past week she was ready to give up too. After all the fighting she did I think she was ready to go. Anyway..hope everyone else is having a better weekend.

Sorry for your loss. I have an answere for just about everything, or I think so, but get reminded at times.

We lost a baby goat 6 weeks ago. All I could thing was 'oh sh!t' to myself & not knowing which way to turn. What am I going to tell the kids? I did not have an answere. Still do not!

My step son took our heeler for a walk tonight, foolishly walking along the road. Needless to say, the dog was hit and killed. My wife might have killed the kid had I not separated them. Now she's in the bedroom crying her eyes out and my step son is grounded to his bedroom sulking. I feel bad for all three. The dog deserved better, the kid had a lapse of judgment, and my wife loved that dog. My condolences to you and yours. Life of all loved ones is precious whether human or animal. Our Dog (Zeus) will be sorely missed. On a lighter note, the vet confirmed yesterday that he's was going to be a daddy. (the guy who sold us the beagle said she was spayed, yeah right) Pups are due in three or four weeks. Just can't figure what a beagle/heeler cross would be good for, Herding rabbits maybe? Sorry for your loss regardless.

Screaminghollow, I hope your wife and son can get it all back together. I do understand her pain though, I would be the same way with my dog. She has to forgive him though, I know he feels bad enough about it. Like I said before, heaven wouldn't be heaven without our animals, and they are there.

Your words of comfort are a blessing to see.
Even in the midst of your own sorrow........

SeaJ, I am sorry your pup had such a short life, but from what you say, she was dearly loved and cared for the short time she was in this world. You did all you could do, and that was enough. I believe in a heaven where there are animals with us when we get there. Some people say thy don't have souls, so there won't be any. I can't imagine heaven without animals.

Sorry to hear that SeaJ It is hard to watch a young one not make it. Any idea of the cause?

She was diagnosed with ciliary dyskinesia. What it was, her lungs were not working right. The ciliary in them did not work at keeping out the dirt and dust and she had bad breating problems. I had been giving her antibiotics everyday and breathing treatments on a machine 2x a day plus lung massages. Poor thing went through alot. But she was so sweet. She laerned to blow her nose for me whe I would hold a tissue to it and say "blow" . She also learned fast what the breating machine was. When I would start setting it up she would get on the bed and stick her nose in the mask and was ready to go. But we did all we could. If we hadn't put her down we would be doing all that everyday for her whole life plus probably have her on oxygen. I don't think it would have been a good life for her not being able to run and play.

Oh SeaJ, that is so sad! I am so sorry about your pup. I know you did everything possible to help her and let her know you loved her. Some dogs don't get that much love in their whole long lives.

I am sorry to hear about you pup, it is a very hard thing to do, putting a beloved pet down. I have to agree with the post about pets being in heaven, I believe all of mine are waiting for me. It sounds as if you went the extra mile for your pup and I am sure she knew she was loved, what more could anyone of us man or animal ask for?
