Theres no word or words that can describe how we feel and apreciate how we feel about our pets. They do their job staying on watch 24/7. Big or small in stature they all feel they did their best to apply what they had to work with to the job at hand. Respect their dedication and be damn glad they picked you.

I feel your pain and dilema. I just lost my Neopolitan Mastiff on father's day. He was diagnosed with heart failure last September and not expected lo live to the end of 2011. He outlived the prediction by 7 months. He was never in pain, just lost his pep. He came in the office to check on me. I scratched his head for a minute. He walked into the kitchen, layed down and died. Never once considered "putting him down". He deserved better since he was not in pain. Yes it was an expensive proposition. Between the specialists and 10 months of meds @$180/month it put a dent in the budget, but that is what we do for our loved ones.

Sorry PS, I had to put down our little 17 YO Mongrel Terrier about 6 months ago, a week before losing my Mom. She was truly mans best friend 24/7. My hearts still not in the game completely yet. I will put your pup in my prayers! God bless her and you.

Sorry to hear. Dogs are the best! Even the lowliest mongrel is 1000 times better than a human of the highest pedigreed.

That kind of news always sucks. I lost my black lab/boxer mix a couple years ago. He was a 115lb smart groundhog killing machine, could run 28mph for 300 yards. Then I had a kid, she wandered of when she was 2, I came into the living room and she had her finger underline his eyelid, wiggling it and laughing. That dog didn't even growl, he just looked at me with his other eye as if to say "make it stop, man, make it stop". How many dogs would put up with that?

Remember the good times.

PS, I know how you feel. My wife and I have had to put 2 dogs down in the last year. It never gets any easier. My prayers and thought go to you and Taz. Remember the good times, and enjoy the time you have left with her. If you need someone to talk to, let me know.

We decided to put her down on Monday the 27, she couldn't hardly walk, layed around, wouldn't eat, not drink much, when I could get her out side she would find a nice place to lay down, and just watch everything going on around her, no barking, just watching I would sit by her and just pet and talk to her. The day me put her down we had to lift her into the car, all my girls came by and said their good buys, that hurt, they knew her for half of there lives me my wife and the youngest daughter (26yo) went to the vet. We let Taz out and walk in to the shade and lay down where me and my daughter fussed over her, the wife went in to let them know we were there, they told us any time we were ready, we took Taz in and into the room, The staff was real compassionate told us what to expect, and asked if we wanted to stay for the procedure, We stayed, the staff provided me and the wife with chairs, daughter didn't want one, the staff positioned us so we could be close to comfort Taz and pet her, they than gave her the shot and Taz passed away surrounded by every body that loved her and those she loved, the staff then stepped out and told us to take as much time we needed to say goodbye. I had a hard time letting go, and with other medical problems I have it has hit me extremely hard I have a great support group helping me, my family, friends, my doctors have told me, if I wanted to talk, to call them at home if need be and at any time my family have taken vacation my friends have taken time of to be with me when family cant, and all you guys and gals with your support Im hoping the worst will be over before to long, and then gradual get back to life where I can talk about Taz and the way she made me fee,l and the crazy stuff she would do, I cant do that yet without breaking down. I am so glad of the support on here and at home/friends again THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart

The day I decided to put my dog that I previously mentioned he fell in the driveway and was too weak to get up. He gained enough strength to walk in to the vet, sniffed around, laid down in the room and died. It was like it was his last spite to those effin vets: I'll die on my own! Strange thing is, when my parents took their dog in and it did the same thing, except outside the vets door.

Also, when my grandpa died, we got back from the hospital and this dog was sitting at the patio door looking towards their house. He looked at us and howled one long sad howl as soon as we walked in the room.

My grandma told me a story about when my great uncle's ship was sunk his dog went nuts (hundreds of miles away). He survived, but the dog knew he was in trouble. Us humans definitely lost something as we evolved.

So sorry for your loss! I've been there and dread that day with ever dog I have. The last one I lost I had 18 years and 1 month to the day. It was really hard to deal with. I took it hard but my other dog took it really hard. He wouldn't get up or eat for 3 days. So we decided to go to the pound and get a dog that was on the put down list and brought her home it was ruff for a day but they became fast friends. Knowing I lost my friend was hard but knowing I saved another dog and am giving another dog a new lease on life really has helped me deal with my loss. I still miss him daily but when I look at my other dogs face makes it easer to deal with. I hope the void fills in your heart and you find peace knowing you gave Taz the best life she could of had. You should be proud to of been her best friend.
Griffin
