  • OT: Lost a friend today

    Well today was officially a bad Monday. I had to take Beau for his final ride and have him put down. He had a really rough night last night and stopped eating and drinking. That pretty much told me it was time to do my duty to him and let him go. He simply had nothing left to fight with. It took all of his energy to walk to the door of the vet's office before he simply laid down. He died in my arms after the vet administered the injection. I kissed him on his head as he took his last breath. I haven't cried so hard for so long in what seems like forever but I know it was the best thing to do for him. No more suffereing for ya, big brown dog. Ya know I'll miss him but the memories are a lot of happy ones. Gotta go dry the eyes now and hug on Shady and Gizmo some more. I just wanted to get this out of me. I now return you to your regularly scheduled audio programming.

      i feel your pain, shawn. dax, my husky mix lasted 13 1/2 years before he developed 3 tumors. i took him to our vet(we have a family farm) they were removed, but he was not the same happy dog we loved. he had trouble breathing, and became lethargic. it took 2 injections before he passed. i guess we get so emotionally attached to dogs because they love us unconditionally. still, it's never easy...

            Sorry for your loss, Shawn. Never remember the bad time you just went through but focus on all the great years you two had together. I'm sure you gave that pup a great life and he's smiling, or slobbering, down on you right now. ;)

                I really empathize with you Shawn.

                Is it a correct assumption the Beau is pictured in your Avatar? If so, then I can't think of a better tribute you could give him . . .

                  That's a very tough event to endure and it will probably take time to adjust to the loss.

                  My first pet was a sheltie/poodle mix name "Pepper" that I got when I was a toddler. His last days came while I was at college and my mom had to do what you just did. It was tough on me but much more tough on her having been around during the whole progression of events and final passing on. We all still have the memories of the good times with them though even though it isn't quite the same as having them around to make new memories.

                        Nothing really dies. It just changes form. The universe wastes nothing.
                        Fire into smoke, vibration into heat. Everything serves a purpose. It may not be the purpose we prefer but a purpose non the less. Still, Im sorry for the letting go.

                          Re: OT: Lost a friend today

                          So sorry Shawn,
                          as you know I recently lost my close pet as well, so I can empathize with you here pretty strongly. Over the past few days the feelings have ebbed and flowed, each peak and trough slightly less than the one before. It's like a speaker with a really, really, really bad step response! :P

                          I'm sorry you had to lose him, but I'm sure he was loved deeply and provided you with so many invaluable memories and loyal companionship. You did the right thing by bringing him in, and I'm sure somewhere he is thanking you for the huge act of love and bravery that it is to end the suffering of a loved one. May he rest in peace, and let his memories give you strength to carry on.

                          Best,
                          Max

                            Very sorry for your loss. You and Shady and Gizmo take care...as difficult as that may seem without Beau, you still have each other.

                              Sorry to hear that Shawn. We lost our two very senior puppies last summer. You expect to see them around every corner in the house for a long time.... We have new rescue fur friends now, but Buck and Rosie are never far from our hearts.
