Well, September 16 is the day.

Post by xChorusOfAngelsx on Fri Aug 26, 2011 10:58 pm

My mom and I finally made the decision to put our dog to sleep. Not really sure how to feel about it. He's just at a point where his quality of life is gone and there's nothing more we can really do for him. Harry is a 14 year old shih tzu. He's blind, diabetic, and I honestly think he has doggie Alzheimers. As a pet owner it's the responsible decision to make, but I can't help but feel guilty about it. It's still three weeks away, but I already feel sick thinking about it. He's like a hairy little brother, I got him in 3rd grade. He won't be suffering anymore, but I just feel so bad having to bring him to the vet to die, that place really scares him. I know my mom feels the same way. We were hoping he'd go in his sleep. When I stop in to visit or do laundry, I've been hoping to find him dead, comfortable in his bed. Doesn't look like it's going to work out that way though. We're dreading it. We've even considered overdosing him on insulin, but we aren't sure how his body would react- he'd either have seizures or go into a coma and slip away. We don't want to risk it.

I just needed to sort of vent. My life isn't exactly easy right now and this is just one more thing to worry about.

I'm so sorry Amanda Sad We put a dog down in 2006 and it's still hard sometimes but it's the best thing to do.

Thanks guys. Not looking forward to this at all. Think I'm just going to bury myself in school work for awhile, although, I'm not studying the happiest topics in the world. I have to read a book on suicide and another one debating the death penalty :O

Dude that sucks a lot. It's time like this I am glad I never got a proper pet. It must be awful to lose it like this

I actually had both suicide and death penalty in Ethics lectures(yes I have studied ethics believe or not) and while my notes would be rather useless since they are not in English if you want to bounce ideas or practice on me(well practice debating. Not practice the death penalty on me) I am available

Thanks Rex. I might take you up on the offer; I have to see whats going on with the class I need to read the death penalty book for. It's an online writing class and we haven't heard from the professor since school started on the 29th. There aren't any assignments posted and it's a bit odd.


This makes me feel a little better, hehe Wink

Thanks Stephanie : )

It was quick and he went very peacefully.

Since he was a very spoiled little dog, the animal shelter is going to get a large bag of toys and a squishy over-priced bed.
