    Over the last 30 years we have always had privilege of Dogs owning us in the all the years we have had Irish Setters, but some 11 years ago we ended up with a Boxer who along with our Irish friend went all over the UK with us In Dec last year we had the dreadfully news that he had Cancer over the last 2/3 months we saw the decline in his health which came to a head in the last week i wont go into this ,yesterday i could tell by his look that he had enough so with heavy heart he was put to sleep today by our local vet.I feel totally lost without him but also i feel better for talking about it for that i apologies i have no doubt dog lovers out there will know exactly how i feel We have the the consolation of looking after our Irish friend which helps but there is a massive gulf left again I'm sorry for posting this but it Helps..

    Thanks

    Its hard to do when they are telling us they have had enough but it is the last act of kindness we can do in making sure they dont suffer. After all they have been loyal to us all their life.

    Hello Bill, we have also had a Red Setter and a Springer Spaniel both who I had to take to the vet for their final journey. It is a terrible experience which still brings tears to my eyes. But the love and devotion that only dog lovers will understand pays for the grief many times over. We would not be without mans best friend.
    Keep smiling
    Larry

    Hi Dave and Bill. I too have been through this and it really was one of the worst experiences of my life. I just kept hoping the injection wouldn't work and I could take him home again. But we know it is our responsibility as owners to help our pets when they are suffering and it is an act of kindness. You will always remember him with love and smile at his antics, but the pain has to go first. I'm thinking of you.

    We lost both our staffs over christmas, one before and the other just after.
    All i can say is that "time's a great healer but the sadness will creep-up on you from time-to-time and when it does just remember the good times".
    Easy to say that from here, we watched marley and me last night and when he went to the vets i had to leave the room as i was a blubbering wreck.

    good-luck....nige

    sorry to hear of your loss, it is something we never get used to, but unless a miracle extends the dogs life to same as ours it is something we must learn to live with and move on to the next dog. Nothing really makes it easier.

    Hi Bill
    so sorry to hear mate.. I genuinely feel for you
    We are doggy people and Mo would love to get another, but after we lost Ralph ( a spaniel ) I decided I could not take the heartache again..

    All you can do is know in your head and heart that while he was with you you gave him a bloody good life
