I'm sorry to hear that. You are doing the best thing by ending his/her pain. I hope that your own will deminish quickly.

I've lost a few good dogs in my life as well. I feel for you. It's harder than people who haven't been through it, or non-dog people know. I have one 14 years old and one 9 years old, so I'm preparing myself for it again. But I know, that when it happens, I'll just jump right back into it with a brand new pup. I just simply cannot imagine life without a dog. It just wouldn't be life. Best wishes Mattieau. Get yourself a bottle of wine or your favorite adult beverage and get a little tanked. You'll still be sad, but the good thing is, you'll be lit like a Christmas tree too.

Default it's only my opinion but...

Sorry to hear that. Know how you feel.

I had to put down my dog named Monty recently. He was 16 years old and a very loyal dog. We purchased him about a year after our daughter was born. He was great with our other two small mini Dachshunds. He was their big brother and they miss him. I'm working on a picture portrait of him to hang on the wall.

How lucky that Caley had 16 fun years with you - but saying goodbye is always sad.
