Sorry for the loss but all I could think of was how lucky you were. Oldest dog is close, one on the left in my Avatar. I DREAD having to take him to be put down. Dread coming home to find him in pain. My best hope is I would just wake up one day and find he had slipped away in his sleep. It would be soooo much easier if it happened that way.Sad to say another RIP post.
Tweak my 16 yr old Maine Coone mix passed in his sleep a few weeks ago. I was happy that it happened that way because he was terrified of vets and I wouldn't of wanted him to die while afraid. Was thinking of having a mobile vet swing by when the time came but he didn't give me any warning. The dog is missing him too.
