Dog B

Post by redroque »

Dog b went south today:(.
She’s been in a difficult way for a few weeks so we had to be grown up and do the decent thing. 15 ½ is a good age for a spaniel too.
I read on the inter web recently a rant from a S African vet about dog owners who ‘couldn’t face’ it and how the last thing a dog does is look for its owner and they are too cowardly to be there.
Today that wasn’t me. I was there holding her head and paw as the lights went out. I’m sounding quite together here but at lunch time it was a different story!
Now I have gin and am not tripping over her as she attempts to get that bit closer. Not feeling any better just yet then!
Honey. Daft name, cracking dog. RIP.

Sorry to hear that, Max. Totally agree about being there with them.
It's a bugger getting inside the horn when you've got the array supports in place, isn't it!

Well done to you Max. I cried like a baby when I last went to the vets in that role :(
I'd rather have a life of 'OH WELLS' than a life of 'WHAT IFS.

So so very sad. I could never leave mine, I'd have to be there for them. It would kill me if I wasn't no matter how distressing it is.

Sad news Max, I am sorry for your loss.
I've been through this several times and it doesn't get any easier...
Yes, I can hear you Clem Fandango.
