Soooo sorry, Cajun. Making that decision is hard, but the dog will let you know when it's time. We had to put our 18 year old Dalamation down last year...she was my fibro buddy. Our remaining dog, Dylan, has mast cell cancer and we are in the same position that you are...when he has no more quailty of life, it's 'time'. I love all animals too. Yesterday I caught a bumble bee in a jar (found him on the bathroom floor) and let him loose out side.
Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, scoliosis, back problems, hypothyroidism.
All I can say is...I am so sorry. I know that my dog is just that "my dog" she is part of my family and everyone loves her, but she is mine. I can't even begin to imagine the pain that you must be feeling. I wish I could say something to make you feel better, but I can't.
I think I would make the choice to put my dog down if it came to that, I could not stand to see her suffer, not one second. I cried like a little girl when I watched "Marley & Me" thinking how I could not stand it if that happens to my puppy. Enjoy this time that you still have with your doggie. I hope he doesn't have to suffer too much. I hope you can come to terms with the choice you will have to make.
Hugs to you!!!
