She's been suffering from hip displaysia and the past month it's gotten a lot worse. Can't justify the 3k surgery and this seems the only option.

Picking up a cheeseburger and ice cream cone for her on the way home

Update: that was one of the hardest things I've ever done, even tougher to be strong for my wife, she was pretty then up about it.

Sadly sometimes our best friends go before we do.

Sympathies for your loss.

I am going to miss my dog when he passes some day he is my best friend.

I'm sorry. They're with us for way too short a time.

Sorry for your loss, Just had to put down our lab two months ago that adopted us two years ago. They are never with us long enough. We are picking up our new addition this weekend. A Belgium Malinois
they have a life expectancy of 12-14 years, maybe longer than me.

sorry for your loss. I'm dreading this day. I'm just hoping i'll go first so I don't have to deal with it.

Sorry for your loss OP. It's an incredibly hard decison. I had to put my buddy down a few weeks ago too. I miss her every single day. Just know she can finally rest and not be in pain.

I'd probably sell everything I rationally could to pay for my dogs medical costs...

I know how it feels, OP.

sorry to hear this.

I had to do this in August of 2013 with one of my dogs. Surgery was not an option.

I am not sure if you have a chance of doing this at home. If you vet does this it will be better for the both of you

I don't know if this is the right place to post this but I am really pissed off. Last week I found a breeder who had two female Malinois pups. At the time he told me he only had the two. I picked the one I wanted and sent him a deposit.
I booked a motel room because he is 350 miles from me.
Today he calls me and says he will not sell me the dog because she is too high drive to be a pet. She needs to be a working dog. But he has a second female and a male that he would let me have.
I saw a post on his web side where someone had asked if the dog I had picked was still available.
My first reaction is to tell to F off and send me my deposit back.
Am I wrong or should I consider taking one of the other pups?

Your breeder is dishonest . You should let it be known far and wide .He figures he can get more money elsewhere

.....Um yeah, this is the wrong place.


So sorry OP will be praying for you.

I got ya.
I have to put down my buddy of 15 years soon, I think Monday.
Main Coon cat, we got as a stray, abused reject. Damn fine pal he is.
Just know you gave them the best they could have gotten.

Sorry to hear about your buddy.
Their short lifespan compared to ours just sucks.
Link Posted: 7/2/2015 7:34:26 PM EDT
It's a tough decision you have to make. I had to put down my 16 year-old dog last week.

My condolences.

Rich
