Default Pet Greyhound No More.

My dog Charlie had to be euthanised last Saturday after breaking his off side elbow-.He was in a lot of pain & at 14+ years old his time was up.. He would come & rest his head on my lap as I sat in my chair in the garage/shop until I gave him a treat..We didn't have to lock the back door of the shop while Charlie lived in there. His registered racing name was Rob's Radar. Youngest son Ian took him for his last visit to the Vet because he had to be carried..James jj777746

Very Sorry for your loss. Loosing the 4 legged friends is sometimes harder then most anything. Just remember he will be waiting at the rainbow bridge.

Sorry to hear for your loss. "Dogs aren't our whole life but they make our life whole." We had the same thing with a dog about 8 years ago. Seizures were every hour, loss of control and a blank stare. Later a friend led us to two mostly Chihuahua puppies. My son-in-law has a dog that is about 10-12 years old and has lost all control of his hind legs; cant even wag his tail. SIL is having a hard time making a decision. His neighbor is a vet and has done everything possible to help. What is difficult is Wilson's condition isn't life threatening. Has to be carried outside, too.

I feel your pain. More times than I like and have one final yet as cancer seems to be the diagnosis for our 13 year old Golden. The pain starts when you know what's ahead and doesn't stop for some time. What we get from them is everything unconditionally but only for a short period of time. We pay in one big payment for all the joy and love they give us. The hardest part is doing what's best for the animal and not prolonging the pain no matter how much we want to hold on. Some choices are just plain hard.......

Very sad. An old friend advised me to get another dog fairly soon. The new dog doesn't replace your old friend, but we get used to loving these wonderful creatures, and that empty spot begins to heal as you get to know, and love, the new pet. The thing about dogs, I think, is that they accept your love and attention completely. No holding back. At any rate, I hope you all feel better soon, and that the sadness lifts and is replaced by fond memories.
